Along the way you will enjoy various highlights and get to know the specialities of Chur and the surrounding area not only on the (e-)bike, but also culinary and with all your senses.

If you still haven't had enough back in Chur, you can use the cable cars to the Brambrüesch mountain in Chur at a special price, from where it's back to the city on a cool flow trail through the Alpenbikepark!

Highlights

Let's go!

From the Event Village in the middle of the normally busy Grabenstrasse, the start of the Velo Gusto Rheintrail Tour takes you through the Alpine town of Chur and below the Rosenhügel onto the first dirt roads towards Felsberg.

Felsi's story trail

Soon after Felsberg you will be on a very special trail. After short and sometimes steep passages, you come to Felsi's story trail. Class 4b 2021 has placed stories with a lot of love and craftsmanship. After the climb, you deserve a break on the two benches and enjoy the view over Felsberg.

Ninos Velo Gusto Challenge by ÖKK BIKE REVOLUTION

The route continues - sometimes paved, sometimes on trails. Have you always wanted to know how you would perform against an Olympic champion? Here we go: on the marked ÖKK BIKE REVOLUTION Strava segment you can virtually test yourself against world champion and local hero Nino Schurter!

Welcome to the castle of Reichenau

The location of Reichenau Castle at the confluence of the Vorder and Hinterrhein is unique. Reichenau lies amidst the mountains in the Graubünden Rhine Valley, directly at the gateway to the Surselva and the Grisons Grand Canyon, making it an ideal starting point for numerous trips. In the inner courtyard of the castle, you can look forward to home-made risotto and a tasting of the castle wine from the von Tscharner family - a real highlight!

Let’s keep it fun – Photo-Challenge

After refreshments in the castle garden, the journey continues across the Rhine to the other side of the valley. The second part of the Velo Gusto Rhine Trail Tour takes you on a picturesque route past Domat/Ems towards the starting point in Chur. Some exciting trails and views await you along the way. Who will remember these unique moments in the most beautiful or original way? The most creative will be rewarded! Take part in the photo challenge and use the hashtags #oekkbikerevolution and #velogustotour - we are excited!

Brambrüesch for the insatiable and flowtrail-lovers

Chur's local mountain offers an extremely varied range of activities from spring to autumn and is one of the best in Switzerland when it comes to mountain biking. If you still haven't had enough when you get back to Chur, you can take the Brambrüesch cable car to the Känzeli middle station for the special price of CHF 7.50/ride (pay directly at the ticket office) and enjoy the cool flow trail through the Alpenbikepark down to the valley!

Back in the Event Village, the finisher drink (for everyone in the ÖKK BIKE REVOLUTION trail bike shirt) will give you fresh energy again - Welcome back!

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!
