Hot Spot for Bikers of all Skill Levels
720 kilometers of mountain bike trails of every level of difficulty, and 480 kilometers of cycling trails in the Pinzgau Saalfelden Leogang Valley will entice advanced bikers as well as beginners to experience tours they’ll never forget. And anyone who wishes to capture their own daredevil stunts should certainly try the HOT SHOTS Trail in the bike park: the 3.5-kilometer Flow Trail is specifically geared to the needs of GoPro users, virtually guaranteeing videos of biking experiences with maximum excitement.
Europe's largest bike park is also located in Saalfelden Leogang, and serves as a venue for the UCI Mountain Bike Downhill World Cup--the only Mountain Bike World Cup in Austria. What’s more, the Bike Park hosted the UCI Mountain Bike & Trials World Championships (the biggest mountain bike event in the world) in 2012. And the countdown is on, because Saalfelden Leogang will once again welcome the World Championships in 2020. So the downhill medal-winners will be crowned here again after eight years.
In addition, Saalfelden Leogang is part of the largest E-Bike region in the world, and is the ideal place for long bike rides for every age group.
