    Step scale bike this summer. Gorgeous mountain scenery, last part with bends rather dry. At the top you can enjoy a wonderful view to the valley floor.

    Street surrounded by a beautiful alpine environment very nice to go especially in the last part where the curves become more narrow and frequent (attention to any bus). At the top of the pass lies a rest area where you can see the valley below, and continuing along the road past the beautiful lakes of the Engadine.
