CYCLING IN TYROL

The family holiday region of Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis is perfect for leisurely cycling excursions, mountain biking tours and action-packed downhill rides

Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis offers the ideal infrastructure for all types of cycling. The network of trails includes gentle climbs as well as sporting challenges, and there are many mountain huts and refuges along the way for refreshing rest stops. If uphill cycling sounds too strenuous, why not let the cable cars take the strain? Bicycles are the ideal means of transport for families during your holiday in Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis. Exploring the region’s attractions by bike is fun, relaxing and keeps you fit too! E-bikes are also available to rent – a great way to try mountain biking without committing to uphill pedalling!

Mountain biking

More and more winter sports enthusiasts are swapping their skis and snowboards for mountain bikes in the summer. The skills required for both the winter and summer activities are almost identical: coordination, quick responses, orientation, balance and rhythm. Cycling can be fast and furious or gentle and relaxing, so it’s a great sport for the whole family as there’s a style to suit everyone. An inspiring Alpine backdrop is a prerequisite for a real mountain biking adventure, so the Tyrolean Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis holiday destination is a magnet for cyclists – especially since one of the 16 ‘European Leading Bike Parks’ and one of the Alps’ most successful bike parks is right here on our high plateau.

FREERIDE AND DOWNHILL

The Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis Bike Park is a two-wheeler paradise with nothing left to be desired: beginner, intermediate and expert bikers can choose between freeride and downhill trails for various skill levels. Like ski slopes, these are rated blue for easy, red for moderate and black for difficult. Riders test their skills on jumplines with over 40 jumps, or on the steep natural terrain with plenty of drops, roots and rocks. Junior mountain bikers have fun at the Kids Park, which is right next to the Waldbahn cable car’s valley terminus. It’s a child-friendly practice course with mini obstacles to test balance and coordination. The Bike Park’s guides are on hand in the training area to teach beginners young and old the tricks they need to know to master their first family-friendly downhill runs together – as safely and with as much fun as possible. Bicycles and protective gear can be hired from the Bike Park’s shop.

CYCLING WITH A LITTLE HELP

Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis has responded to the e-bike craze with a large fleet of e-bikes for the use of visitors to the region. The nippy motorised bicycles have been adapted for use in the mountains and fitted with a sensor that measures the cyclist’s strength to control the amount of power required.

This makes holiday cycling an energy-saving pleasure. These special two-wheelers will carry you distances of between 30 and 60km, giving both cyclists and Mother Nature reason to breathe a deep sigh of relief. A good spread of rental stations and the dense network of charging stations provide Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis with the perfect e-bike infrastructure.

TOURING TIP

There are routes dedicated to culinary delights that lead either to the Schöngampalm at 1,878m above sea level, where an Alpine hut, children’s farm and freshly prepared Tyrolean specialities await, or to the Leithe Wirt restaurant – a favourite for home-made ice creams with a large sun terrace and an adventure playground.

Hike & bike tip: take a leisurely hike up to the Schöngampalm and cycle back through the Urgtal Valley on a mountain bike – we recommend booking your bike in advance!
