Up hill and down dale
The Eisacktal valley is a cyclist’s El Dorado offering an almost endless choice of routes, from the easy cycle paths down in the valley to idyllic trails across woodland and pastures up to the more challenging high-altitude trails on Mt. Plose. Whether you are a leisure cyclist or an adventure-thirsty mountain biker, the area offers options for every taste and skill level. Thanks to its mild climate, the Eisacktal valley enjoys a long cycling season going from spring through to late autumn, when the mountain tops get their first white sprinkling of snow. You can explore the area on your own or take a guided tour and let a professional guide show you the most scenic routes. If you would rather leave your own bike at home, you can always rent a bike, MTB or E-bike and protective gear at the rental shop by the mountain terminal of the Plose cable car.

We have some insider tips to share… here are a couple of tasters:
The Plose single trail:
The single trail on Mt. Plose is called Flow 6.6 KM and offers an exciting challenge and a rush of adrenaline to both beginners and expert mountain bikers. Rich in steep curves, the 6.6-kilometre fast-flowing track leads from the mountain terminal of the Plose cable car at 2,050 metres all the way down the 1,000 drop to the valley terminal.
MountainBIKE Testival in Brixen:
Every year at the end of September, MTB fans gather in Brixen for the MountainBIKE Testival – a great occasion to test the latest MTB models from renowned brands, take guided tours with mountain bike stars, and enjoy a rich programme including workshops, riding technique classes, expert talks… and plenty of fun, of course!
