At CUBE SAVOGNIN, we maintain the highest standards in bike guiding. That is why the General Manager of the hotel is a trained and certified mountain bike guide himself. He knows the area around Savognin like the back of his hand and gladly helps plan your individual tours.
Here is a short profile of the bike guide:

“I’ve been riding mountain bikes – with job-related breaks – for about 20 years. Originally I’m from Austria, specifically from the beautiful, mountainous state of Carinthia. For 2 years now, I’ve had a chance to discover the canton of Grisons by mountain bike. I like to use the time on my bike to enjoy the outdoors and escape from workplace stress. For me, mountain biking is not just about fast downhills – it also means conquering your weaker self, for example during long climbs.
Savognin offers bikers the best conditions: a gorgeous mountain landscape, a nearly endless number of MTB routes, relaxed people and much more. These are the advantage I want to get across to the CUBE guests. For this reason, I decided to become a mountain bike guide in 2012. CUBE perfectly complements the region’s advantages, with bike-oriented services like Showrooms and ramps that can’t be found anywhere else. As General Manager of the hotel and a bike guide myself, I am proud to be able to show our guests the region as it is: traditional and unique!”
