The bike tour begins in Steg and continues on a light slope to Valüna Valley. The climb towards Alp Gritsch and then on to the Pfälzer hut, begins beyond the alpine buildings. Only experienced bikers will manage the climb that begins once you have passed the Gritscher alp hut. The hill ahead with its imposing mountain scenery is your reward. This can be better enjoyed from the inn at the Alpine Associations cabin. The descent back to Steg follows the same route along a country path.
