KAT Bike eLight
There is an eLight version of the legendary classic KAT Bike over three or four stages. Instead of having to tackle all the elevation gain and many kilometres with some very challenging descents at times on tricky trails, the KAT Bike eLight places the focus fully on pleasure and gaining impressive experiences in the charming mountain landscape of the Kitzbühel Alps. The target groups are e-bikers with basic technical abilities and bikers in good physical shape. We recommend mountain bikes, gravel bikes or trekking bikes with good/medium profile tyres.
Bonus stage Mariastein - Hopfgarten, 25 kilometres
On the cycling route over the river Inn there is a very nicely made forest trail from Wörgl that heads around 500 metres up to Möslalm, which has a wonderful view of the entire Inntal Valley. From here you have a leisurely ride down the mountain to the entrance of the Brixental Valley and the cycling route to Hopfgarten.
Stage Hopfgarten to Brixen im Thale – Variation A, 36 kilometres
The route leads along an asphalted road to Penningberg - past old farms with loads of lovely flowers and with a marvellous view of the entire Brixental Valley and the Kitzbüheler Horn. A little later it leads on a well-made forest path to Haagalm. From here it goes down the mountain to the idyllic little village of Kelchsau - where it seems like time has stood still. Stopping off at the old Fuchswirt inn before continuing is well worth it. It heads up again then towards Glanterer Kogel and branches off to the left on the easy variation of the KAT Bike and onto Westendorf. Then on the Brixental cycling route to the stage finish in Brixen im Thale.
Stage Hopfgarten - Brixen im Thale – Variation B, 35 kilometres
From Hopfgarten along the road in the direction of Kelchsau. After around 7.5 kilometres you reach the tranquil resort of Kelchsau with its traditional old town centre. It then continues up again towards Glanterer Kogel and branches off to the left onto the easy variation of the KAT Bike and continues in the direction of Westendorf and into the stunning Windautal valley, where the Käsealm Straubing Alpine pasture with its homemade cheese and bacon specialities allows hungry bikers to replenish ahead of the rest of the ride. There is another short section on the forest path before reaching the Windautalstraße road. It then continues down the valley to Westendorf and the Brixental cycle route to the stage finish in Brixen im Thale.
Stage Brixen im Thale - Oberndorf, 29 kilometres
The start of the stage is at Brixen train station. It then leads via the suburb of Winkl into the valley of the Brixenbach stream - from where it goes continually upwards slightly on a well-made forest road. From the Brixenbachalm Alpine pasture it gets a little steeper. You soon gain height as the forest becomes brighter and great views of the surrounding mountains open up. The Wiegalm Alpine inn soon greets you with superb regional cuisine. Particularly well-known and popular is the oven-fresh roast pork, although this is only available at weekends. The forest road now leads upwards again all the way to Kirchberg. Anyone who wants to can also take the easy to medium difficulty Wiegalm single trail to descend - although this requires a bit of technical skill. From Kirchberg it continues on the valley cycling route in the direction of Kitzbühel, past the stunning Schwarzsee, which has the Wilder Kaiser massif reflected in its waters. Then along the Schwarzseestraße road onto the town of Kitzbühel. Then to the valley station of the Hornbahn cable car and after that left via the spectacular Roman road to Oberndorf and our stage finish for today.
Stage Oberndorf to Fieberbrunn, 38 kilometres
The final stage is the longest by distance, but it does not have too much elevation difference. Dream natural surroundings await you again. It first leads on an asphalted cycle route to St. Johann in Tirol through the splendid town centre and further along the cycle route running alongside the St. Johanner Ache river all the way to Erpfendorf. From here the cycle route leads partially through a forested area and offers a pleasant amount of shade on hot days. From Waidring the road goes uphill through Pillerseetal. It reaches a cycle route at the top that runs alongside the incredibly stunning Pillersee, which is constantly fed year round by crystal clear spring water from the Loferer Steinberge and is very fresh. The cycle route now goes via St. Jakob in Haus to Fieberbrunn.
