Date(s) - 16 Sep - 18 Sep
5:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Upper Engadin is a mountain bike dreamland. The area is famous for the glitzy winter sport destination of St. Moritz but when the snow melts the area allows us to use the lifts and the trains to transport our bikes up onto the mountain and ride the countless trails in the area. The weekend will be run by a qualified Swiss Cycling mountain bike guide.
Who is this weekend for:
This weekend is aimed at intermediate level mountain bikers who would like to enjoy some stress-free tours in a scenic environment. You should be interested in riding single tracks with small obstacles such as roots or stones of about arm thickness. Some trail coaching will be provided over this weekend.
Friday evening: Travel from Zurich to Celerina.
Saturday: Ride trails in the area around Celerina, Pontresina, St. Moritz and Silvaplana
Sunday: Train to Bernina Pass, ride trails back to the Engadin valley with some trail coaching along the way.
Depending on the tours we chose we may do between 400 and 800m of ascent on at least one of the days, but we will do this at a relaxed pace and enjoy the scenery as we climb.
If you would like to brush up your skills in advance of this weekend then you can check out our Intermediate or Improver courses which can be found on the events page of our website.
• 2 nights accommodation

The cost does not include lunch, evening meals, travel to and from Engadin or the train from Poschiavo to Ospizia Bernina (if we were to perhaps do this option on Sunday)
I would recommend people eat something on the way to Celerina on Friday night and we will go to a Restaurant in the area together on Saturday evening.
* One possible ride for Sunday involves riding from Berninapass down to Poschiavo (weather permitting) the return train ride for the person and their bike is not included in the weekend cost. With a halbtax card this is approximately 11.20CHF (this ride is not definite, just one option that might be used)
