Summer in the Austrian Tirol – a big outdoor adventure playground

On your bike in Tirol

This Summer, for the first time, Kitzbühel as part of the Kitzbüheler Alpen region joins the worlds largest electric cycling area with 275 e-bikes to rent and 75 bike stations for recharging the bike’s electric batteries. E-bikes enable cyclists of differing abilities to cycle together. The small electric batteries give an extra push every time the cyclist pedals, adjustable and sensitive to inclines and wind direction. Long routes and steep inclines made so much easier. There are more than 5000km of mountain paths now accessible to e-bikes in Tirol.
