You will find that in Reit im Winkl it is rarely flat, it is always up and down. Apart from the streets, you will notice when cycling that you are rarely on asphalt. That is why choosing the right bike is crucial. Even a tar road like the one up to the Winklmoos-Alm has a 16% incline or decline - not only leg muscles or batteries have to withstand that, but especially the brakes!
Overview of different types of bikes ... and what you can do with them in Reit im Winkl
It is only suitable for mostly flat and very easy routes, and solid road surfaces are necessary to be safe on the road. In Reit im Winkl there are very few opportunities for use, we recommend tours with a maximum of 100 meters in altitude. Be careful on steep slopes and slippery surfaces. Suggestions: tours to Walchsee, the village tour, via the direct cycle path via Seegatterl to lake Weitsee
For many holiday guests, this is the best solution for the mountains. Longer climbs and tours as well as "bike and hike" tours can be tackled without being too physically fit. The higher weight compared to the MTB is very exhausting on pushing and carrying routes!
