Cycling trips: Enduro, Trail, XC and Road Bike

During spring and right after the summer main season Maaiek & Joost have planned several multi-day road biking and mountain biking trips.

These are perfect biking seasons!

Kids Bike Camp

A Kids Bike Camp means a week full of action. Our Mountainbike Guides share their tips and tricks and teach you new moves on your bike. To feel completely confident on the bike, we will start with safety- and technique instructions.

Weekly planned tours

In July and August we organize weekly mountainbike tours on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Minimum number of participants: 4 persons.
Registration until: 12.00 am the day before
maaike@sportchaletviehhofen.com or +43 664 126 79 19.
With less than 4 participants it could be the tour is cancelled.

Every Tuesday - Ride & Lern MTB Technique and Talschluss Tour

Tour distance: approximately 15 km and 508 m altitude gain
Level: easy
Meeting point: Parkplatz Zwölferkogelbahn
Duration: 10.00 am – 1.00 pm
Price: € 35,- p.p.

Starting out with the MTB basics and practicing your turn techniques, will result in feeling comfortable on your bike before we start our tour. After this technique session we will ride towards Talschluss for a nice tour with amazing views. It will not be a heavy ride but you will enjoy the feeling of some real mountainbiking.

Rent a mountainbike?
Next to the Zwölferkogel parking you will find Rabbit Sports. This is the perfect spot for renting a mountainbike. A hardtail and a fully will both be OK for this tour.

Hardtrail vs. Fully
On a fully is riding a bit more comfortable, but you will need a bit more strength for the climbs. A hardtail is lighter and uphill will be a bit easier, but downhill will be a bit less comfortable.

Make sure you have booked your bike in advance, if possible a few days before the tour. Otherwise it could be they are all out of bikes during the main season. Calculate enough time for picking up your bike before the tour. For more information check out: www.rabbitsports.at

We will walk through the mountainbike basics, before we start our tour towards Zell am See. In Thumersbach our climb starts on an unpaved path through the forest. After we have enjoyed the view over the lake, the Zellersee, we continue our route on a slightly narrower path up to the Enzianhütte. We will stop there for lunch. After lunch we descend to the lake towards Bruck and continue our tour around the lake, from Zell am See back to Maishofen. Part of the group will finish at Big Time to return the bike and the rest will cycle with us back to Viehhofen.
