"Flowig" around the Itonskopf
Schruns-Tschagguns | 31.05. - 01.11.2019 | fr
Great tour on the sunny balcony of the Montafon
Four modes are available on the eBikes: from “eco’” to “turbo”. Level 2 (“tour”) will take you comfortably up the road of the first stage to Bartholomäberg. Here, on the “sunny balcony of the Montafon”, you will already be able to see the Rätikon with the Drei Türme and the Zimba – a magnificent panorama that accompanies us on our way. There will be almost no cars from now on. After passing Alpengasthaus Rellseck mountain restaurant, a gravel path leads all the way to Alpe Latons. The cowbells ring and the marmots whistle as you try a slice of bread with fresh Montafon Sura Kees right where herdsman Christoph produces this typical cheese from the region with his wife, Magdalena. A glass of buttermilk or elderberry juice to go with it – this prepares the participants for the finale of the tour. The highest point of the tour, Alplegi, is already behind the e-bikers, but the most technically challenging part is still to come.
More than enough panoramic views
About the tour: Bike guide Christoph provides the group with some tips on how to manage the steep descent and its various scree sections. This requires some brief preliminary exercises. The path is so narrow that only one bike can fit on it at a time, which explains the name “singletrack”. On the next part of the tour around the Itonskopf, the participants will mostly push their bikes. Back in the saddle, the path leads along a few rough patches with roots before comfortably sailing along a singletrack section.
The participants will ride past the Fritzensee and along public roads back to the starting point – all the while enjoying the fantastic view of the Rätikon summits. “For me, the special thing about this tour is that it is far off the beaten track,” says Christoph. It won’t be possible to change the bike batteries en route. That is why we charge our personal batteries to the maximum on this tour.
