This leisurely ride leads along the Vispa river and, on the other side of the valley, past meadows and scattered mountain forests.

One of the highlights of this bike tour from Täsch to Randa is the view of the Randa landslide. A vast cone of fallen rock, with boulders as big as houses, bears witness to the cataclysm of 1991. A large chunk of the mountain descended in three slides, burying the railway, road and the Vispa river. Miraculously, no one was hurt. The bike trail leads past the spectacular sight.
