Lenght: 230 km

Starting from Prad we ride towards Glurns. After crossing the medieval town, we ride to Mals, turn left at the traffic lights and ride up to the Lake Reschensee.

After admiring the church steeple of Old Curon, our route takes us to the Italian-Austrian border and farther on to Nauders, passing the curvy road to Finstermünz. We ride through the Oberinn Valley to Landeck until Imst.

From Imst we head off to Heiming where we turn right to the Ötztal valley. Following the main road we cross several villages, including Längenfeld and the legendary skiing-village Sölden.

Now we ride towards the Timmelsjoch (2497m). After a short break and some wonderful panoramic views we ride down the other side through the Passeier Valley. In St. Leonhard we turn right and follow the road to Meran. After crossing the spa-city, we ride back to the Vinschgau Valley with its orchards and finally reach Prad.
