The Mountain Railways Tour Engadin St. Moritz is the Enduro highlight of the Alps. Bikers ride exclusively single trails the whole day long, no descent figures twice, and (almost) all ascents are covered by a mountain railway or cableway. Those who really want to push their capabilities to the limit can attempt the entire route in one day – although the whole experience is a little less strenuous if you do it in two.
The tour makes great demands on technique and fitness, and requires proficient bike handling skills on the many arduous Alpine trails. Mountain bikers are on the trails the whole day long, and even the last descent calls for great concentration. Consequently, anyone intending to tackle the Mountain Railways Tour Engadin St. Moritz needs to be physically fit.
