That’s what locals in the racing biking region of SalzburgerLand – Salzkammergut say about the area. There is a rich variety of roads and cycle tracks snaking between lakes, steep mountains, and gentler hills, and 15 professional racing biking businesses, ranging from family run private Bed & Breakfasts through to 4 star superior hotels offering the highest level of racing biking expertise.

The network of 6000 km for racing bikers and mountain bikers is perfect, whatever your demands and training aims might be. Perhaps a 200 km tour with more than 3500 sweat inducing vertical metres, a challenging tour at the foot of the Dachstein, or a family ride on the flat along the Tauern or Mozart cycle tracks.
