The original swissrent Challenge, co-designed by its namesake Dave Kilshaw, departs from Bike4Fun in Zizers/Landquart. From there, Challenge participants await a demanding route (6 Scan-Points, 24.4 km, and 1500 vertical metres) on well-kept forest road from Haldenstein up to the Calandahütte SAC, at over 2000 metres above sea-level. The Challenge is rewarded with breathtaking views of Chur and the Rheintal below, and 360-degree views of the surrounding Swiss Alps. After a celebratory drink and snack at the hut, all that's left to do is enjoy the epic downhill back to the valley floor. Are you up to the Challenge?
