Lift & Bike Giro in the Trail World
If you’re looking for a special experience on two wheels, you might want to visit Tröpolach – and more specifically, the valley station of the Millennium Express summer cable car. Because that’s where the Lift & Bike Giro starts. First, you’ll comfortably float up to the mountain station on the Madritsche with your bike.
And then: It’s time for your descent down to the valley – across a distance of 11.7 kilometres. Most of the trail consists of a gravel road (forest road) and requires some caution. That’s why this route is only something for experienced “mini-downhillers” accompanied by an adult. However, the stunning scenic views of the Carnic and Gailtal Alps as well the flora and fauna of the region are well-worth giving this Giro a try.
By the way: You can access the flow trail at the Gmanberg cable car station just before the last downhill section starts.
Convenient: Sport Sölle is located right by the valley station of the Millennium Express. That’s where you can rent mountain bikes or register for technique training lessons. Perfect for MTB newbies who would like to gather some first mountain bike experience before tackling the Lift & Bike Giro …
