The highest mountain pass road in Austria, the highest point in the Alps accessible by roadbike, the steepest climb in the country – Tirol is paradise for roadbike enthusiasts. In September 2018, Innsbruck-Tirol welcomed the world’s best roadbike riders for the UCI Road World Championships. To mark this historic event we have put together ten Great Rides in Tirol where amateurs can get that World Championships feeling.
Highlights range from the legendary Kitzbühel Horn mountain to the “Olympic Express” ride around Innsbruck and the ascent up along the Kaunertal Glacier Road – three routes which offer some of the best riding in the region. All in all, Tirol has 3,800 kilometres of riding on perfectly smooth roads.
These top ten most beautiful rides, as selected by our panel of three experts, all have one thing in common: great views, plenty of climbing and thrilling descents.
