Breathtaking views and real experience of nature - In the Salzkammergut area also E-mountain bikers reach high up!

The Salzkammergut is one of the most beautiful mountain biking regions in Austria. The unique and varying natural landscape with the spectacular views, extensive forests, clear mountain streams and lush meadows give you the necessary energy kick to manage this sporting challenge. Steep climbs are rewarded with magnificent views.

Take over the Salzkammergut region between mountain heights and crystal-clear lakes, spare no metres in altitude and reach your destination tired, but happy!

The carrying out of the tour is dependent on weather conditions!

 

General information

The E-MTB tours are demanding and therefore physical fitness and endurance are necessary.

To enjoy this trip also a proper cycle equipment like sneakers, rucksack, sun- and rain protection, comfortable sports cloths, jacket, jumper, gloves, helmet, first aid kit and enough beverages and food is mandatory. We strongly recommend taking an emergency repair kit with replacement hose and pump with you.

 

Battery management:

Fully charge your battery every day.

We recommend a second battery. Pay attention to your driving if you do not have a second battery – you can probably charge it occasionally.

A low gear with high pedal frequency increases your range.

An ascent with more than 14km/h in the turbo mode reduces the range significantly. It is better to use a low gear in the E-MTB or sport mode with a speed lower than 10km/h.
