Very difficult climb with 15% from Trieben to Hohentauern. On the south side from Oberzeiring to Hohentauern light pass road with only short climbs of about 10%. Lots of traffic, as some cars use the "Triebener Tauern" alpine road as a shortcut between the Murtal and Paltental.


 Irdning         32 Km / 602 m

Easy to moderate cycling tour around the market town of Irdning in the district Liezen -Styria / Austria. Because of of some abbreviations the difficulty can be adjusted on the cycling tour Irdning.

 Kleinsölk    27,8 Km / 453 m

The moderate styrian bicycle tour Kleinsölk starts in Stein an der Enns. The Tour leads into the scenically very interesting Naturepark Sölk. As the road in the valley Kleinsölk isn’t a road into an another valley, is the level of traffic very low.


 Loser     16 Km / 957 Hm 

As with 10% gradient over 8 kilometers, the Loser bike ride on the scenic road is a challenging bike ride. The road is south facing and as above, no trees are present, it is very warm on sunny days. On the Loser bicycle there is a fabulous views of the Styrian Salzkammergut and an unforgettable view of the Dachstein - the highest mountain and glacier in Styria.


 Mitterberg - Liezen       19 Km / 288 m

If, after the work is little time for training, the bike tour around the Mitterberg near Liezen is often my favourite bike tour. Because of Lassing on Mitterberg hut with a slight increase and with a long steep section of Liezen, you can divide this training wheel well.


 Nockalm - Turrach        98 km /2.789 m         

The Nockalm bike tour begins with the Turracherhöhe and will then continue on Nockalm road to Innerkrems. Return to the starting point in Predlitz is over the saddle "Schönfeld" and through the Thomatal. Not the longest but because of the 4 major climbs one of the most strenuous cycling tours. The landscape on the Nockalm Bike Tour is very nice, because they are located in the National nature reserve Nockberge.

 Oppenberg     58 Km / 1069 m     

Demanding and scenic beautiful bike ride in Upper Styria. Especially the low traffic increases the relaxation factor of this bike tour. Glorious is the scenery on this bike ride from Oppenberg after Gulling and back again over Vorberg to Aigen im Ennstal - Region Liezen - Styria - Austria.

Easy Pass road from Liezen and challenging bicycle tour of the hospital on Pyhrn Pyhrnpass at the border between Styria and Upper Austria. Good road, but unfortunately a lot of traffic. During the week, too many trucks.

Two great passes are included in this cycling tour. First, the Sölkpass with 1.790 m in the nature reserve park Sölktal and then the Radstätter Tauernpass with 1.730 m in the popular winter resort of Obertauern. The final part of the Schladminger Tauern bike tour through the Ennstal valley is no more demanding but also very beautiful.


 Schöckl - Graz        41 km / 1025 m       

The 40km long Schöckl Biketour begins in Graz and through Stattegg you'll bike up to the hill Leber (max 28% !) after Semriach. Around the mountain Schöckl it goes back to Graz. From Semriach there are not many vantage points where you can see far into the Grazer Mountains. There are with Mühlreith, Kreuzberg and Rinnegg some very interesting, lovely villages on the Schöckl Biketour.


 Sölkpaß - Hohentauern      ca. 160 Km        

Very heavy and long bike ride. Especially in the scenic Sölkpass Stein is from both sides in the last 4 miles to the pass a major criterion. I also have really enjoyed the stretch from St. Peter to Oberwölz and by Lachtal because there only a few cars are gone. 


 Sölkpass      39 Km / 987-1.218 m

The Sölkpass is a difficult mountain pass road and is only recommended for well-trained cyclists. The last 4 kilometers to its summit require a high mental strength. Unfortunately, many motorcycle ride through the Sölkpass, as it is in summer a beautiful connection between the Enns valley and Mur valley. Nevertheless, I think that the Sölkpass our best pass road in the district Liezen.


 Stoderzinken   16km / 1.163 m      

As hard as the Sölkpaß bike tour. But a mountain top finish with much less traffic. A very beautiful landscape, winding road and good vantage points to make the bike ride at Stoderzinken Gröbming in Upper Styria, a special experience.  


 Tauplitzalm    10 km / 849 m     

Challenging bike ride on the Alpine Road Tauplitzalm beginning in Bad Mitterndorf to Tauplitzalm. Cyclists do not pay the toll and do not have much traffic.

Difficult cycling tour of Schladming and Ramsau am Dachstein to the base station of the Dachstein cable car. 2 wheel tours are possible with the road bike and some tours with the mtb.

 Wald am Schoberpass      38 Km / 366 m

Easy cycling tour with no major climbs in the Upper Styrian Paltental. A maximum of 4 percent slope. Ideal bike for bicycle training, since one can always remain secure in the medium pulse range.


 Wildoner cycling marathon     166 km / 1385 m        

The largest cycling marathon in Austria. About 6000 participants over 7 tours. Very good organization. The track was perfectly covered with signs, stewards and police. The entry fee is not overpriced and next to the jersey you got a few souvenirs. A bike marathon for the whole family because the family route is 33 km long and has no hills.
