Biking Fun

Explore the majestic mountains on two wheels.

All cycling aficionados – from rookies to experienced mountain bike veterans – love the Thiersee region. Saddle up and explore the diverse landscape of the Province of Tyrol. Pedal, breathe in, feel the crisp mountain air in your lungs, whizz down a summit, exhale. There are six good reasons to mount your bicycle.

  1. Breathe and train your respiratory tract:: the lungs are consistently filled with oxygen, the muscles of the respiratory tract are strengthened.
  2. Strengthen your lipid metabolism: You burn approximately 400 calories during one hour of cycling. You should make it your goal to really pedal as fast as you can for 5 minutes, three times during your cycling expedition – this really burns through calories.
  3. Strengthen your joints: Cycling for just 10 minutes provides extra oxygen and nutrients for the joint cartilage, which helps to prevent arthritis.
  4. Support your heart: Regular cycling makes your heart function more efficiently. You should cycle for at least 30 minutes to benefit from this effect.
  5. Increase your coordination: Cycling improves your dexterity and your reaction times.
  6. Build muscles : Cycling is only an exercise for the legs? Humbug! Entire chains of muscles are exercised – from your hand through your torso to your bottom.
