The long wait is over. The Bike Kingdom Lenzerheide will also open its doors on 6 June when the cable cars in Arosa Lenzerheide start operating. With this cross-destination brand, the Lenzerheide holiday region is starting a new bike era.

One kingdom, two bike parks, six regions, 900 kilometres of single trails
The centre of the new bike monarchy is the Lenzerheide Bikepark. With five lines from the blue FLOWline to the black STRAIGHTline, on which the Downhill World Cup will be held again this year, there is something for bikers of all abilities. Even more gravity fun awaits right next door in the Alpenbikepark Chur, where you can  shred on the local mountain Brambrüesch. However, the Bike Kingdom does not only consist of the two bike parks in Lenzerheide and Chur, but also of a total of six regions that extend as far as Arosa or the Albula Valley. In the regions Bear Mountains, Red Peak, Western Summits, Southern Delights, Steep Trees as well as The Capital, a total of more than 900 kilometres of single trails and technical delights are waiting to be discovered. New trails such as the «Top Fops» single trail, the flowing «The Pipe» or the «Urdenfürggli Twister» are just a few of the novelties that invite you to go biking in the Bike Kingdom.

Events with bike highlights
The Bike Kingdom Lenzerheide would probably not be a real kingdom without festivals and tournaments. The UCI Mountain Bike World Cup kick-off with a triple header of downhill, cross country and short track will take place in the Lenzerheide Bike Park from 4 to 6 September 2020. The annual bike test event testRIDE will take place this year from 11 to 13 September 2020. During the test weekend, as usual, the latest mountain bikes, road bikes, trekking bikes, e-bikes and components can be tested and lots of bike clothes and accessories tried on. Furthermore, the Bike Kingdom Feast from 18 to 20 September 2020 will make up for what was unfortunately not possible at the opening of the season: a big Bike Feast with Dirt Royale, Family Races, food stands, bars and everything else that goes with it. A festival by bikers for bikers.

The new Bike Kingdom App
Find tours and trails, check live information such as weather, open facilities or webcams and in the personal feed you will find relevant news and products. In combination with the App Strava you can add a digital dimension to your bike experience. Compete with your friends and be rewarded for biking.

Bike Services in Bike Kingdom
The Bike Kingdom offers various services like bike shops or rentals, bike schools and bike hotels for bikers. Several sports retailers in Lenzerheide, Arosa and Chur offer a wide range of bikes including accessories and clothing. In addition to rental, some also have their own workshop for bike repairs.
The guides from the bike schools will not only teach you better riding techniques and give you valuable tips on how to handle your bike, they will also show you the most beautiful trails and corners of the Lenzerheide bike region. If you are looking for the ideal hotel for a relaxed bike holiday or a weekend, various bike hotels welcome you to the Bike Kingdom.

Snow free trails
