Great alpine route in beautiful scenic surroundings. The tour takes you via the panoramic path Prätschli - Ochsenalp to Tschiertschen. From there you continue via Molinis back to Arosa.

In Arosa ride towards Ochsenalp. On forest roads the path leads via Prätschalp to the Roten Tritt. The view is unique and seduces you at any time to a photo stop. With easy descents over the Ochsenalp, you soon reach the crossroad, which leads to the village of Tschiertschen or the Churerjoch.

The journey continues on a rapid forest road down to Molinis. Once there, the continuous final ascent with about 800 meters of altitude via Litzirüti and reservoir to Arosa. A beautiful, mostly in the forest located path offers pure bike ambience and demands the tired legs once again to the finish.

Eine tolle Runde mit vielen schönen Aussichten. Bis Mollinis sogar gemütlich - ab dann war es für meine Beine hart und ich konnte die vier Stunden nicht einhalten. Dennoch eine sehr empfehlenswerte Runde.
