Mountain bike competence
Bike tour tips with information on the region
Your hosts, Andrea and Bernhard, can provide you with basic information about the mountain biking region and biking tour tips when you check in at the reception desk. We know the region like the back of our hand and have several recommendations for your first biking tour.
That means that you can ride off on a mountain bike shortly after your arrival, without having to tediously study maps.
For Andrea, enjoyment is a priority. She will happily provide you with tips for the various cabins and their specialties. Bernhard himself is a certivied mountainbike-guide.
* Host experience tour!
Bernhard will be happy to accompany you on an experience tour once a week: Discover the “Altaussee daffodil meadows” or the “chive fields” above Bad Goisern!
* E-mountain bike test during the Salzkammergut-Trophy!
Not only an E-mountain bike classification takes place, but also more than 100 test bikes will be available!! Use for example the Friday before the Trophy – a bigger selection and the possibility to test different bikes on-site in the terrain can hardly be found anywhere else!
Bike tours with Helmut Simonlehner
Helmut Simonlehner, Head of the Mountainbikezentrum Salzkammergut, brings competency along when he comes to the hotel to take guided tours with our guests.
Helmut is a state-certified triathlon trainer and trained mountain biking instructor. Moreover, he also runs one of the top-mountainbike-shops of the Salzkammergut - the "Mouna Loa" in Bad Ischl.
Helmut likes to come to Landhotel Agathawirt and will inform you on the offers regarding
- guided mountain biking tours
- technical biking trainings
- and mountain biking workshops
* Alpine breakfast tour!
What could be more beautiful than to start a tour early in the morning and enjoy breakfast at the alpine hut? During a one-week bike holiday at Landhotel Agathawirt you will receive a voucher for “Häferl & Jausenbrettl” (Cup & cold platter) – an alpine snack at one of the cooperating partner huts – feel free to ask for possible huts/dates on-site!!
He will also be at your disposal for any questions regarding the mountain bike region Salzkammergut in general and about your individual route planning.
Two of Helmut’s favourite tours are the Kaisertour with a variant via the Tauernweg to the Hütteneckalm ("because they are simply great paths") and the Plassen Round (because not only the view is phenomenal, but stopping off at the Roßalm is so incredibly cosy). He sometimes does the guided mountain biking tours himself. He concentrates on the technical biking trainings, mountain biking workshops and biking training consultation, though, and leaves the daily mountain biking tours to his team. The team is composed only of trained mountain biking guides (Mountain Biking Instructor Exam) from the Salzkammergut.
A comprehensive mountain biking information corner with
- mountain biking tour recommendations
- biking maps
- information about the weather and potential dangers
- bike shuttle and public transport
complements the mountain biking information offered at the hotel.
To exchange experiences and have a cosy chat with other mountain bikers, mountain bikers meet at the pergola or in the biking restaurant after their tours after 5:00 pm.
