Racing bike holidays in Bad Kleinkirchheim
“Nockbike” has, for about 20 years, stood for a unique landscape of mountains and lakes away from the mainstream regions. The region around the Bad Kleinkirchheim Nock mountains and the Millstättersee lake is certainly not lacking in any way when compared with the well known cycling destinations. The impressive shape of the Nock mountains with their lush, soft backs and clean lakes provide an ideal backdrop for racing biking.
Racing biking in Carinthia
Every road biker will find something that takes their fancy in this diverse network of rides, swallowing up the vertical metres or taking on the flatter tours around the lakes. Leisure bikers especially like the tours around the Millstätter, Ossiacher, and Wörthersee lakes, where you can combine the pleasure of the exercise with a dip in the lake.
Cycle tours in the Nock mountains
The ride up the Glanz is athletically attractive, but also manageable for less experienced bikers. The stunning view across the Drava Valley compensates the many efforts on the steep passages. A racy downhill ride leads in direction Lake Millstatt where there is time for a little break before continuing via Radenthein back to Bad Kleinkirchheim. Boasting 2.000 hours of sunshine per year, it can get quite hot in the Nockberg Mountains. The Four-Lakes-Tour is perfect for such hot summer days. Whether Lake Ossiach, Lake Feldsee, Lake Afritz or the famous Lake Wörthersee; all guarantee soothing refreshment during this more than 100 kilometres long tour. A special highlight of the region is of course the tri-border tour. The tour leads around 130 kilometres in southern direction through Italy and Slovenia.
