The Madrisa was known among Swiss Bike Masters as the Alpe d’Huez of mountain bikers. The race no longer exists, but the tour above Kosters is still worthwhile.
From Klosters, ride along the Boschga meadowland in the valley below the town of Klosters. Follow the Landquart river until reaching the Saas railway station, then ride uphill to the town centre. This is the starting point for the long ascent to the Madrisa, a climb of almost 900 meters. The downhill trail begins a bit below the Madrisa at the last serpentine. This rather rough trail winds over bulges and serpentines to Alp Bändi. From there, a fast-paced alpine path leads into the Schlappintobel ravine. In the small hamlet of Flue, you have the option of taking a technical trail directly to Klosters. We will, however, stay on the gravel road and ride down into the Schlappintobel ravine. At the second right serpentine shortly before Klosters, the singletrail that leads to Klosters Platz makes up the enjoyable final stretch of the tour.
