Leisurely valley routes, crisp ascents and urban lifestyle - Innsbruck, the capital of the Alps, is the ideal holiday destination for everyone who likes to combine a road bike holiday with urban flair.
Bike City Innsbruck offers road bikers pretty much everything that is needed on a diverse road bike holiday.
Of crisp climbs and challenges
The alpine cultural landscapes in and around Tyrol and the pass roads in the vicinity offer crisp ascents. A sophisticated classic is the tour from Innsbruck to Kühtai, which is situated in 2,020 metres above sea level. If you are after the maximum challenge, then you should be ready for the Kühtai Rodeo. For this, you have to reach the Kühtai from three different starting points (Kematen, Ötz and Haiming) in just one day. There are 122 kilometres and 4,250 altitude metres to be accomplished.
Diverse routes for leisure cyclers
The surrounding low mountain ranges offer gentle altitude metres for motivated road bike beginners. Leisure bikers can take tours in the Inntal Valley or use one of the many traffic-free and comfortable cycling tracks. You leave the town behind in the shortest of times and can enjoy the surrounding landscape. With such an extensive programme and so much variety, it doesn’t come as any surprise that the capital of the Alps has become the venue of the UCI Road World Championships 2018.
The variety of Innsbruck - between city and mountains
The difference between a road bike holiday in Innsbruck and somewhere else is the combination of sporty challenge in alpine scenery and urban lifestyle. During the day, you discover the area by bike or clock up altitude metres, and at night, you enjoy Innsbruck’s nightlife with culture and culinary delights.
