Alp Nova: a pass between Obersaxen and Val Lumnezia. From val Lumnezia, village of Vella, follow signs to Alp Nova. The road is paved to about 1850m, then gravel to the top (2070m) and a longer stretch, maybe 6-7 km, is unpaved on the Obersaxen side. At the start of the descent the road was blocked (mother cows!) and I had to push the road bike a bit (200-300m). Probably easier on an mtb or gravel bike. https://photos.app.goo.gl/r62Fn32dWa85NwkF8

Dutjen-Riein: when cycling the Vorderrhein/Anterior Rhine valley, avoid the main road through Flims, use the road from Bonaduz to Ilanz. Even there one can do better: between Valendas and Ilanz there is a higher road through Dutjen and Riein, lovely and quiet. Note the brilliant outdoor bathtub setup.

Via Mala: Riding from Thusis South to the San Bernardino the official biking route no 6 takes you through a long tunnel. Instead take the old road through the gorge, phased out because of falling rocks. No traffic, as some of the road has collapsed. It's still considered fine for hikers. Note the memorial to "a friend, a good friend". When you emerge from the gorge stop at the church in Zillis, which has a unique painted 12th century ceiling.

Wife wanted to ride for the first time in five years or so. 26 km.
Cycling shoes didn’t fit, saddle didn’t fit, so position was off. Must fix. Must also fix a smaller gear than 34x25.
Old Technos is still as pretty as the landscape though.

Whenever I see your photos I wonder, "is this near or on the path of the original marathon? Or an epic battle of the Peleponnesian War? Or where Socrates conversed and Plato wrote?" So awesome.
