BIKE EVEREST TIROL
MORE THAN JUST CYCLING
A completely new adventure awaits mountain bike enthusiasts this summer. A total of 8,848 m of altitude difference has to be conquered - which corresponds exactly to the height of Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world. This extraordinary 285 km tour leads through the Bike-Land Tirol in seven stages.
We start in Garmisch-Partenkirchen with an impressive round tour that leads over one of the steepest climbs in the Eastern Alps. We continue to the Eibsee lake at the foot of the Zugspitze, up to the "Hochtörle hut" in the Tiroler Zugspitz Arena. The varied tour takes us along the old Roman road over the Fernpass down into the Gurgltal valley to Imst. After a detour into the Lechtal Alps, you continue above the Inn Valley, over the Kronburg towards Landeck, into the alpine mountain landscapes of Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis. The Tyrolean Oberland with one of the most beautiful places in Tyrol, the Pfundser Tschey, forms the penultimate stage before the destination of Plamort near Nauders on the Reschen Pass is targeted.
An experience with or without an electric motor
The BIKE EVEREST TIROL is open to both hard-core mountain bikers and more leisurely e-bike fans. The tour starts from May to the beginning/mid-October. Whether you tackle the entire tour in one week or take your time over the summer is up to you. Every finisher receives a certificate and the BIKE EVEREST TIROL trophy. There is also the chance to win valuable prizes in the big competition.
It's more fun together!
On top of this, even less trained friends and family members can support "their athletes" as part of the accompanying tour anchored in the overall concept. The program includes both regional leisure activities and shared summit happiness with the athletes through the support of mountain railroads and e-bikes borrowed locally.
