Starting point of this challenging tour is the parish church in Brigels. On your way out of the village, after the hotel Kistenpass, you take the way on the left side to Crest La Crusch/Brigels and to Waltensburg. Despite your remarkable speed take a look at the beauties of this village! The ride gets a little bit tougher after the first switchback on the sloping forest track from Waltensburg to S.Clau.
Here you go about the ascent. Passing by the village Rueun you drive towards Pigniu. The view over the lake is idyllic, the tour around the lake a clear enjoyment!

But, pay attention, this does not apply to anybody on the following section.
For the plunging Singletrail on the right valley side (Attention: at the same time hiking trail!) one needs good bike skills!
Further on the track leads on the Senda Sursilvana. Thereto you follow the waterway of the stream «Schmuerbach», then you mount about 200m after the fireplace on the natural path and reach at an altitude of about 1300 metres above sea level the Cuolms d'Andiast. Now it is not far anymore to Andiast. From there you follow the communication road towards Waltensburg until you reach Curtginet, the valley station of the chairlift. First you turn right into the asphaltic mountain road, ascend up to the switchback and pass by Migliè on the meadow path. Alongside the right lakeshore you find your way back to the village Brigels.

Attention: Depending on your bike skills you have to face a march of about 400m shortly after the masonry dam down into the Val da Pigniu.
