Tips and suggestions for your cycling holidays

In order to have safe and great bike holidays, it is important to know the rules of conduct and the signage. The bike guides of the Kitzbüheler Alpen will be happy to help you. Below you'll find the favorite routes of the guides Kurt Exenberger, Anouk and Eduard Bichler.

The favorite routes of the bike specialists

Kurt Exenberger - Manager and Guide at the Bike Academy in Kirchberg

Guide at the BikeAcademy in Kirchberg

By far the favorite route of Kurt Exenberger, Manager of the Bike Academy in Kirchberg, is the newly built Gaisberg Trail, opened on 8 June 2013. The "Gaisberg Trail", when compared to the Lisi Osl Trail also on Gaisberg mountain, is more challenging. The 2 km long trail winds its way along the lift terrace. Then it crosses the steep slope, from where it leads downhill along the edge of the slope until the finish. The trail is challenging in terms of riding skills and has some jumps and drops incorporated for downhill riders. Rookies will find chickenways if they want to avoid the most challenging sections.

Anouk - Guide at Bikeguiding Alpin in Hopfgarten

To the "Rigi" Alpine Inn This wonderful circuit on the sunny side of the Hohe Salve starts at the Hopfgarten info office. An insiders' tip for all those who want to shorten the long ascent: using the 1st section of the gondola lift will save you a good hour going up. Right by the lower terminus follow the Lindrainweg to the right uphill and from now on always follow the signage "Rigi, Hohe Salve" (MTB Route 269). Past the Sunnseithüttn hut, the intermediate terminus and the Tenn Inn you'll get to a crossroads and follow the road to the left, from where after a short descent by a farm you'll get to a steep gravel path. Follow this steeply uphills at first, before after a few meters of descent you'll come upon another forest road which leads uphills to the Rigi in a few curves, 1,533 m (connecting route No. 268) and thus to the highest point of our tour.

Somewhat challenging but leading uphill under nice, shady greenery! Branching off the cycle path Erpfendorf - Waidring ijn the parish Erpfendorf Wald to the Griessbachweg, from here after about 1 km off to the right to the Taxenbodenweg in direction of Huberalm. At the Huberalm fork continue straight on and rather strongly sloping into the rift. From here across the cattle grid moderately ascending in direction of Angerlalm, from where a connection is available to the Kalksteinalmen route.

Rules of conduct

After sever weather, trails may be impassable, rocks and trees may fall onto the trail. Trails often lead through steep terrain, where there is a risk of falling. Such danger spots are not typically secured. As our forests and alpine pastures are farmed, motor traffic must be expected also on the approved MTB-routes. It can also happen that routes are temporarily closed, because forestry use is underway. This is why very particular rules of conduct apply on the Tyrolean MTB-routes for the protection of cyclists and all those form whom the forest is a workplace.

Rules of conduct

  • Always drive at a controlled speed and according to visibility particularly in curves since you have to be alert to hindrances at any time (e.g. road damage, stones, twigs, logs, cattle, gates and barriers, tractors, etc)
  • Show consideration for hikers and walkers and overtake them at a walking pace.
  • Take into consideration the level of difficulty of the route and assess exactly your biking experiences and skills. Protect your head with a helmet and control your gear before your bike tour (brakes. bell, light)
  • Respect barriers and accept that some ways serve primarily to agricultural and forestry utilization. Close the barriers after passing!
  • Show consideration for the environment and animals and don’t leave the marked routes. Don’t drive off the open trails and finish your tour before sunset.
  • Do not leave any waste behind!

Singletrail - own rules!

  • On the extremely difficult and dangerous single trails you have to keep to the following rules
  • Take care! Driving allowed at one’s own risk and at walking pace only. – no control of trail condition!
  • Show consideration for hikers, cattle and wild animals – don’t drive off-trail.
  • Pay attention to alpine dangers!

Signage and levels of difficulty

MTB-Route-leicht-blau_01

Blue Trail - Easy Family-friendly, bike trail negotiable even with normal bicycles with good pavement (fine gravel or asphalt and similar surfaces). Ascents and descent between 0 % and 5 %, a maximum of 10 % over short sections. Alternation between ascent and descent, no continuous ascents. Trails free of vehicles or with low frequency of vehicular traffic. No hazardous areas appear or hazardous areas are identified through notices and signs.

MTB-Route-mittel-rot_01

Red Trail - Medium difficult. Requires good bike handling skills and very defensive riding. Mountain bike gear is recommended. Ascents and descent between 5 % and 12 %, a maximum of 17 % over short sections. Blind and curvy sections occur. Car traffic taking up the entire width must be expected. The road features, incl. the condition of the road surface, drainage facilities (e.g. water channels), cutoffs (e.g. bars), safety installations (e.g. missing railing and fences) and pointers to hazardous spots, are exclusively aimed at commercial traffic with tractors and trucks. Such installations in themselves may present danger spots for cyclists.

MTB-Route-schwierig-schwarz_01

Black Trail - Difficult Difficult, challenging mountain-bike trail with numerous potential dangers, which exceeds the maximum gradient of the red trail and the trail characteristics of which is even more difficult. Mountain-bike gear is mandatory. Anticipatory riding appropriate to the situation is required.

MTB-Route-Singletrail_01

Single Trail - Extremely difficult Extreme and challenging route, not negotiable by car anymore. Character of a steep alpine path. Risk of falling possible, no safety installations such as rails, very steep. Obstacles such as high steps, roots and boulders must be expected. Not always ridable with sections, depending on riding skills, where the bike needs to be pushed or carried. Due to the influence if weather, these trails may often be very difficult to negotiate.
