A bicycle tour on the Pyhrnpass in Austria to Spital am Pyhrn in Upper Austria is not particularly difficult, since no specific pitch can be overcome (within 7-9% - Difficulty 2 and 343 altimeter). By Spital am Pyhrn on the Pyhrnpass it is a little different. (Pitch max. 10-15% - Difficulty 3 and 365 vertical meters). Especially if you ride a big bike lap (eg Hengstpass bike tour) and the Pyhrnpass is at the end. If you're already at the end of your powers, does this short but tough climb even hurt.

On one of my firstmajor cycling tours I had to drive the last meters to the Phyrnpaß even on foot, because I had such cramps. On weekends, it is much more comfortable ride for cyclists on the Phyrnpaß, since during the week due to the relatively high traffic, the fun factor is not as high. For mountain bikers there is the possibility of going to the Pyhrnpaß Hintersteineralm too. The turnoff to Hintersteineralm is on the side of the Styrian Pyhrnpaß about a kilometer before the pass. And up to the beautiful pasture there it's only a few kilometers.
