With ex pro rider Markus Hirzinger you have a passionate cycling fan by your side; he knows the best bike tours in the area and is on hand to advise with lots of helpful tips. His advice – during mountain tours it is much safer to take an E-Bike, since there are often quite a lot of metres altitude to tackle before you get right up to the top. Anyone planning a tour should definitely check the operating range of their battery beforehand and maybe even bring a charging unit. And definitely take a bike map in your rucksack, so you can get back to the hotel Der Bär safely again.
When it comes to the selection of tours available, the region provides so much more than you could tackle in just one holiday. From a leisurely beginner's tour to a challenging mountain crossing, there are countless options to choose from, depending on your fitness level. Below are 3 cycle tours that you can head out directly from the sports hotel Der Bär.
