Tips and suggestions for your cycling holiday in Brixen im Thale

To enjoy a safe and a wonderful cycling holiday, it is important to know about the rules of conduct and what the signposts mean. The bike guides in the Kitzbüheler Alpen are delighted to provide you with further assistance. The routes favoured by Kurt Exenberger, a former national squad MTB trainer, can be see here.

Kurt Exenberger - Manager and guide at Bike Academy in Kirchberg

Guide at Bike Academy in Kirchberg

The absolute favourite route of Kurt Exenberger, manager of Bike Academy in Kirchberg, is the newly constructed Gaisberg Trail, which was opened on 8th June 2013. The 'Gaisberg Trail', in comparison to the Lisi Osl Trail which is also on the Gaisberg, is more demanding. The two kilometre trail snakes along the lift terrace. It then crosses a steep slope, where you then finally proceed along the edge of the pistes. This technically demanding trail has a few jumps built into it for downhillers. There are chickenways, so rookies have detour options. Ride on, Kurt.

Rules of conduct

When the weather has been poor, some routes can be almost impassable; stones and trees may block the route. Routes often proceed through steep terrain where there is the risk of falling. Typically dangerous sites like these are not secured. Since our forests and alpine pastures have to be tended, be aware that you may encounter vehicular traffic on open MTB routes. It may also be that routes can be blocked on occasions, since the route may be used for forestry operations. This is why there are very specific rules of conduct on Tirol's MTB routes, to protect the riders and anyone for whom the forest is a place of work.

Rules of conduct

  • Always ride at a controlled speed and be aware, especially on bends, since obstacles may occur at any time (e.g. damage to tracks, stones, branches, wood which has been stored for an interim period, grazing cattle, cattle grids, barriers, tractors/forestry machinery, vehicles driven by authorised personnel)!
  • Look out for hikers and pedestrians and only overtake at walking pace!
  • Be mindful of the difficulty level of the route and gauge your own experience and skills as a rider accordingly! Protect your head by wearing a helmet and check your equipment before every bike tour (brakes, bell, light)!
  • Stop at barriers and accept that this route is primarily used for agricultural and forestry purposes! Close pasture gates!
  • Be mindful of the natural surroundings and wildlife; do not leave the designated route; avoid riding away from the opened trails and finish your bike tour before sunset.
  • So not leave any rubbish behind.

Single trails - have their own rules!

  • On extremely difficult and dangerous singletrails the following supplementary rules apply:
  • Please note - You ride at your own risk; only ride at an appropriate speed – the trails are not monitored!
  • Be on the look-out for hikers, grazing cattle and wild animals – do not ride away from the designated path!
  • Be mindful of alpine dangers!

Signposting and difficulty levels

MTB-Route-leicht-blau_01

Blue route - easy Family-friendly cycle trail with good surface (fine gravel or asphalt, or comparable surfaces) which can also be ridden with standard bikes. Inclines and declines of between 0% and 5%, on short sections a maximum of 10%. Alternates between climbs and descents, but no continuous climbs. Traffic-free or low traffic route. No especially dangerous areas and any danger sites are specifically marked (e.g. signposts).

MTB-Route-mittel-rot_01

Red route - moderately difficult Requires sports-level riding ability and particularly cautious riding. Mountain bike equipment recommended. Inclines and declines of between 5% and 12%, on short sections up to a maximum of 17%. There may ne unclear sections with a lot of bends. Be prepared to encounter vehicular traffic taking up the entire width of the road. The route, in particular its composition, drainage facilities (e.g. water conduits), cut-offs (e.g. barriers), safety facilities (e.g. missing railings and fences) and notices for dangerous sections, is exclusively designed with work traffic, including tractors and lorries in mind. These facilities may present hazards for riders.

MTB-Route-schwierig-schwarz_01

Black route - difficult, challenging mountain bike route with lots of occasions when the maximum incline exceeds that for a designated red route and whose route characteristics are even more difficult. Mountain bike equipment obligatory. Riding which is suitable for the conditions is absolutely essential.

MTB-Route-Singletrail_01

Single Trail - extremely difficult Extreme and challenging route, no longer passable by vehicles. Character of an alpine path with all the alpine dangers. Risk of falls; no safety facilities, such as railings; very steep. Be prepared to encounter obstacles such as high steps, roots and boulders. Not always rideable, in sections - depending upon your riding ability - you may have to push or carry the bike. These routes are often difficult to ride due to the weather conditions.
