DEAD ENDS & dolci is a self-navigated bikepacking event in southern Switzerland. The italian speaking Ticino region has a mediterranean flair. Countless small rugged roads, remote valleys, old villages with unique stone houses and neverending switchback roads with almost no traffic.

This second edition will take riders to even more remote areas. More remote does also mean less paved roads! It’s time to saddle you gravel or MTB horse!

All checkpoints are located at the very end of a dead end road. The five checkpoints are mandatory – but you chose the order and the route that suits you and your bike the best. We will welcome you with homemade “Dolci” (sweets) at every checkpoint!
