Cycling and Mountain Biking
Great fun on two wheels
For mountain bikers, there is nothing better than reaching the highest point by bike and then freewheeling back down again. This dream is easily reached in the Glemm valley, for the majority of peaks can be reached by lift, as well as many mountain biking trails, making the Glemm valley a real biking Eldorado.
In recent years, the Glemm valley has developed into an internationally known mountain bike paradise, with numerous mountain bike trails as well as great bike parks in Leogang and Saalbach Hinterglemm. Many of the surrounding lifts operating in summer, can also be used for bike transport. The result being, you are able to reach the high mountain trails with little effort, before heading back down to the valley on two wheels on the most spectacular Freeride trails.
Both Saalbach Hinterglemm and Leogang have special Freeride routes. Here you will find the most diverse trails, from those for beginners, with wide curves and numerous bypasses, to kilometre-long professional single trails.
E-Bikes / Trekking bikes
Since the invention of the E-Bike, biking is no longer only for lovers of endurance sports. With an E-Bike it is possible to discover and experience the landscape in and around Glemm valley, as well as biking uphill. There are also some attractive tours for both trekking and E-Bikes, of varying degrees of difficulty.
The great advantage of a racing bike, is that long distances can be covered quite easily. In fact, from Viehhofen you can discover half of Salzburger Land as well as parts of Tyrol with a racing bike. A tour which is a real highlight for cyclist, is the Großglockner Hochalpenstraße, a winding road with an altitude difference of almost 1,700 m. This tour offers spectacular views and is a true challenge for cycling enthusiasts.
