This long distance mountain bike route leads us on the tracks of the Oberstdorf mountain guide Andy Heckmair. He already explored this route in 1990 and has been considered a pioneer in mountain bike alpine crossing ever since. His route takes us over the Allgäuer Alps, the Lechquellengebirge, the Rhaetian and Engadine Alps and over the Adamello Mountains to Riva on Lake Garda. If you are not afraid of some carrying and pushing passages, if you know how to move in high alpine terrain and if you have your bike under control on technical trails, this legendary tour is suitable for you and you will be able to fully enjoy the highlights of the tour (trail from the Scalettapass, alpine panorama at the Pass Chauschauna).
