St. Gallen, Switzerland

St. Gallen, SG Switzerland

All checkpoints are dead ends. Located at some of the most beautiful, remote places of eastern Switzerland. Start and finish in St. Gallen. People try to avoid dead end roads. And that’s why they are so special! Small rugged roads, roughly carved into the mountains will lead you to the very end of a valley or to the top of an alp. The only reason to go there are stunning sceneries and amazing landscapes! That’s why there’s almost no traffic. Just you and the mountains.

Find your own way! All checkpoints are mandatory – but you choose the order and your best route. Try to create a fast, a versatile or the most spectacular route – it’s up to you. As in real life – our dead ends aren’t the end of the world. If you don’t mind some offroad or hike-a-bike action – there will be a way at the end of the road.
