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.
Rent a mountainbike?
In Maishofen you will find Big Time Sport. 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.
