moderate Mountainbike · Haus-Aich-Gössenberg
Beautiful tour, where long climbs alternate with beautiful descents. It leads through alpine pastures to the Styrian Bodensee.
Important note: There is a pasture passage on the route (between Gössenberg and Galsterberg) where the bike has to be pushed around the corner standing on the back wheel. With heavy e-bikes, this process requires a certain amount of force. The pushing of the back wheel is best done with the back wheel brake pulled. We are working on a solution that is satisfactory for the farmer and cyclist. We apologize for the inconvenience!
Beginning at the village square in Aich, take the R7 to Ruperting, continuing on a paved road that climbs gently. Passing Wellness Hotel Höflehner, you will come to a flat gravel road. Having reached Gumpental, after the Maierlalm turn left, follow the country road, then right towards Seewigtal, beginning a short climb. Soon the path narrows and a beautiful forest path begins, shortly after you will reach the highest point of the climb, then a country pathway drops down to Seewigtal. Here you have the option of a 15 min hike to the Steirischer Bodensee, before the tour continues along Seewigtalstraße towards Gössenberg. Now comes the final climb, via a gently rising paved road. A gravel road will bring you to the Pirklalm, where you begin a ride from the Pruggererberg back to the valley. Keep your eyes open during the ride down to ensure, after a series of switchbacks, you don’t miss the turnoff for Auberg, continuing your tour to Assach. Having reached the R7, returned to Aich.
Tour at your own risk! No liability will be accepted for any given or occurring alpine driving (weather, etc.).
