Road biking in Upper Austria
The region surrounding the town of Wels with its 60,000 inhabitants is known as ultimate bike centre. Nestling between the meadows, forests and hills of the Alpine foreland, the region boasts many low-traffic, well-developed side roads. There is a reason why the Simplon Felbermayr Wels pro team and Wolfgang Fasching, extreme athlete and three-time winner of the Race Across America, cover many training kilometres here. If you are a road biker, then is this the right place for you.
City, land, river
Wels combines urban lifestyle and unforgettable landscapes for road bike tours with special services for road bikers. The central location makes Wels the ideal starting point for tours through all of Upper Austria. It only takes a few minutes and you leave the town behind you and find yourself surrounded by beautiful nature.
