Difficulty ratings for mountain bike single trails:
The Single Track Scale comprises six difficulty ratings, ranging from S0 - S5. The difficulty rating of your Tours is graded according to this scale. The difficulties are graded based on the constitution of the trail, the types of obstacles present, the gradient, the type of and angle of curves and — therefore — the technical skills required to safely pass.
The most important points of the adventure tour are signposted on-site. When you register, you will receive the exact tour as a komoot GPS route with a region bundle voucher worth EUR 8.99 and can start biking with your GPS device.
You can already discover the stops of the tour virtually on the komoot Collection:

Coffee and cake in the chestnut village
Now it's downhill, first on an easy descent, before flowing trails take you towards Pianturin. Enjoy a delicious chestnut cake in the beautiful, typical Ticino village. After a little refreshment with a wonderful view of the Magadino plain, you continue downhill on crisp trails into the valley.
Surprise in the traditional factory
Once you arrive at the Magadino Plain, a universe of pleasurable moments awaits you. Welcome to the world of Stella. The traditional local company has always produced its own products, fine-tuning innovative recipes and offering chocolate lovers a wide range of specialities – especially organic and fair trade. Indulge in Stella's sweet surprises and fill your bidon with Sponser Sport Food before you set off.
Along the picturesque Ticino you start rolling again, shortly before the next highlight stop there is a short and crisp uphill. Barley has been milled in the Mulino del Precassino for many years. Today, too, you can enjoy an original Ticino barley soup as a starter. Then it's on to the main course.
Gnocchi fun with a rustic ambience
In the beautiful, rustic courtyard of the Antica sosta dei viandanti you can fortify yourself with tasty gnocchi for the second, no less spectacular part of the Gusto Ride tour.
Also wine belongs to Ticino like water to the sea. Taste the classic Ticino Merlot from the Cantina il Cavaliere Contone. But don't be tempted, because the finale of the Gusto Ride is still waiting for you.
ÖKK Photo Trap
Of course, you don't have to go home empty-handed. As a special, the ÖKK photo trap awaits you – always smile! Don't worry, you will be made aware of it before the photo spot, so that nothing stands in the way of your personal, unforgettable action picture. Cheese!
