EASY RIDER with support
Yes, we all know that it is possible to get up every mountain by mountain bike - but why go to all the torment on holiday, when there is an easier way? Use the Penkenbahn cable car for the first section of the ascent, before you hit the pedals yourself. Savour breathtaking views of Zilleral’s tributary valleys and treat yourself to a break for refreshments in one of the mountain huts on Action Mount Penken. The sheer pleasure of effortless riding a mountain bike through the picturesque landscape of Mayrhofen-Hippach and its tributary valleys is hard to beat. A good e-bike is not only lots of fun, but turns every “pedal-pusher” into the king of the idyllic mountain routes.
It is not always easy to find a sporting activity suitable for the whole family. Cycling is the ideal pastime for sports enthusiasts of all ages. Optimal conditions for varied cycling excursions can be found along the banks of the Ziller River. The pleasant route leads past places of interest, playgrounds and guesthouses. The return journey can be made conveniently with the Zillertalbahn train.
