On mountain bike tours in Pinzgau
Have you ever heard of Hundstein? This tour is one of the classical tours and the guys of Bigtime Sport know them very good. Once a year, the slogan reads as follow: “Hundstein - Biag di”, that means, in this contest the competitors have to beat the chronograph – Sepp is one of the most successful sportsmen in this contest. You can start your tour literally when walking out of our Bigtime Sport shop and then you can cycle up to an altitude of 1,400 meters. Or you decide to explore the other side – into the directions of the alpine huts Örgenbauernalm, Jahnhütte or up onto the mountains Sausteige and Biberg. When you cycle up to the Erlhofplatte you can experience a wonderful view of lake Zeller See, or you try something else and cycle up the mountain Bruckerberg. Another classic is the tour up the mountain Maiskogel in Kaprun.
The tour into the direction of Alpincenter on the Kitzsteinhorn is pretty hard, so maybe you choose the tours to the alpine huts Pinzgauer Hütte or Hochsonnberg Alm instead.
There is a great variety of tours and you have the choice. We give you information, tips and maps. Link for download: fahrradkarte-16-web.pdf
Trail action in the glacier world
Finally. For a few years now the glacier Kitzsteinhorn has become a centre for free-ride sports in summer, too. Thanks to a few guys from Kaprun and surroundings, the mountain railways transport bikes in summertime and three super cool single trails were built in the terrain of the Kitzsteinhorn.
The fun starts at the Alpincenter and leads you via the Geißstein trail into the direction of Langwiedboden. There starts the so-called Wüstlau trail and leads you almost endlessly down into the valley. Banked turns, jumps, tables and at the end unendingly sharp bends and curves. If this track seems to be too heavy for you, you can choose the Bachler trail instead.
This track is easier, smoother and with the right flow it leads you to the lake Klammsee and back to the station of the bottom of the mountain railway. There you can start the next round.
Enduro & Free Fide Inferno around the corner
You know Saalbach Hinterglemm? But not only because of its great skiing area. For quite a while now there exist the Bikecircus for tours, enduro, free ride and downhill action "de luxe". Five mountains, five mountain railways, lots of single trails, free ride lines and a lot of non-stop bike action. For your warm-up you start with the Hackelberg trail and afterwards you switch to the Z-Line. In the evening you take the Adidas free ride lines at the mountain Reiterkogel and finally you switch to the Milka Line and the X-Line. Not enough? Then take everything on one day and take the Big-5-Challenge with your bike. There you get literally "over the mountains" into the legendary Bikepark Leogang. Experts have a try at this world cup downhill trail, at the Bongo-Bongo or at the Flying Gangster. Sportsmen with enduro bikes have their fun with the tracks Hangman I & II. Luckily, you had your bike serviced at Bigtime Sport in advance, so nothing’s going to stop you!
