ebike holiday destination Stubai Valley
Superlative Biking – Across the Stubai Valley on two wheels
The first single trail rounds off the Stubai Biking Offer, from summer 2016.
Whoever thought summer in Stubai was just about the hiking trails, was wrong...
The downhill trails, mountain bike tours and gentle biking excursions make the biking region of Stubai one big outdoor adventure. The plain facts: 720 kilometres of signposted bike trails, ascents of up to 13,000 metres and panoramic views from a height of up to 2,700 metres. New to the 2016 mountain summer: the EinsEinser (One-One) Single Trail, the new hotspot for downhill fans on the Neustift local mountain, the Elfer.
The first single trail on the Elfer in Neustift
Almost five kilometres of cycling fun, 800 metres’ altitude difference, medium difficulty level sometimes crossing natural roots, and sometimes in flowing sections: the new EinsEinser Trail – the first exclusively downhill route in the Stubai Valley – promises varied and challenging biking fun on two wheels. To complement the EinEinser Single Trail, the Elfer cable car company is offering a first-class bike service. Transporting the bikes takes place easily and comfortably with the special transport hooks on the cable car, and at the end of the EinsEinser Trail, the bikes can have the dust and dirt from the final descent removed at a special wash place.
Limitless mountain biking, both uphill and downhill
Bikers who prefer to cycle uphill can let off steam in the Stubai biking region across a network of trails 720 kilometres long and at heights of around 13,000 metres. The signposted tracks of the current mountain bike network from the federal state of Tyrol mean that every biker will find a suitable route. Road-racing bikers who naturally prefer the asphalt route can look forward to a special highlight in the Stubai Valley: the asphalt route of the Stubai federal highway as far as the cable car valley station of the Stubai Glacier.
Practice makes perfect
Novices and advanced bikers alike can practice their cycling skills on the specially installed obstacle course at the bike academy in Fulpmes. On request, local specialist guides who live in the region will accompany interested mountain bikers on the routes. Not only do they pass on useful expert knowledge about the correct way to ride, but they also give you insider tips on panoramic views in the mountains as well as providing fascinating extra information about the valley and its features.
E-bike cyclists can make use of their own special routes, as well as eight bike hire and battery changing stations. Thanks to the e-bike’s environmentally-friendly electric motor, pedalling power is increased by up to 150%, meaning that inclines can be tackled with ease. For anyone who also wants to take in some of Stubai’s top sights at the same time, a free guided e-bike sightseeing tour is offered every Wednesday from June to September. The ideal opportunity for all leisure cyclists!
A further service from the Stubai Valley makes it possible for you to plan your holiday in advance at home: on the website of the Stubai Tyrol Tourist Board at www.stubai.at/en/activities/biking/ you can find all the key information about biking. As well as accommodation, all MTB routes are described in full. All the tours are shown with an altitude profile, distance in kilometres and trail details. 3D simulations also offer the opportunity to get a better idea of the route in advance. The trails can be downloaded as GPS data and then followed along on the ground when riding.

From time to time you have the opportunity to measure yourself against other bikers in competitions. At the beginning of the bike season the Serles Trophy, a time trial mountain bike race, will take place for the second time on 20th May 2016. The annual mountain bike race on the Pfarrach meadow in Telfes has been part of the Stubai bikers’ calendar for somewhat longer: for 20 years, to be precise, and so the race will be taking place this year for the 20th time. The Pfarrach Meadow Hill Climb – 20 Years of Racing will take place on 2nd July 2016 in Telfes.
Tyrol Mountain Bike Safari: Across Tyrol on a mountain bike
A route of the well-known Tirol Mountain Bike Safari leads as far as the market town of Steinach am Brenner. The day-long excursion starts from Fulpmes and goes through Neustift all the way to Steinach. You don’t have to complete the entire route under your own steam, however: for approximately one hundred altitude metres, you can take the cable car. The Elfer cable car lifts in Neustift and the Serles cable car lifts in Mieders also play their part, ensuring that the bikers on this route can enjoy the spectacular view of the mountain scenery of the Stubai Valley even more. Along this medium difficulty route with some difficult passages, 41.3 biking kilometres with a total of 1,980 altitude metres is covered but “only” 560 altitude metres have to be cycled by the bikers themselves.www.tirol.at/bikesafari/
