Enduro Biking in the Austrian mountains
Enduro – a flourishing concept in recent years. Everyone does it, everyone wants it and the industry makes us happy with bikes that master this connection – and that with flying colours -a bike for an enjoyable and smooth uphill or a bike for rough splinted downhill and root-strewn forest soils. Enduro means HARD(duro) and ENDURANCE. The key disciplines are combined here: UPHILL and DOWNHILL. For every „Endurist“the Bike-Circus in a summer holiday is a paradise for unlimited enjoyment. All trails are accessible via uphill as well, the flowing single trails put a permanent grin on the faces of the sport fanatics and the alpine panorama is just the needed dot on the i. Special tours for example the Hochalmtrail or the Wurzeltrail in Saalbach Hinterglemm are the enjoyment moments of the biking sector. The solitude in the nature and the distance to the cable cars complete this experience. Those who mastered the uphill to the Hochalmtrail through one´s own strength, relaxes exhausted on the alpine pastures and satisfyingly looks over the valley, with anticipation of the downhill fun, has truly found the summer holiday.
