Brand new routes for the latest bike trend: Gravel biking

For road bikers who want to discover nature on a gravel bike and dare to turn off onto unsurfaced trails, Zell am See-Kaprun offers several brand new routes for comfortable and fast biking. Around Lake Zell, for example, you can bike on asphalt, gravel, forest ground or uphill to a summit.

A gravel bike is a mixture of a road bike and a mountain bike - the tyres have a tread pattern and are wider than road bike tyres, a light road bike frame and curved handlebars are ideal for changing grip & seating position. Gravel bikes are therefore ideal for touring on a wide variety of terrain. Nothing stands in the way of exploring the bike trail network. Try out the new bike trend sport!
