Off on your bike! The main thing is cycling. Whether on an MTB, an e-bike or a simple city bike, the sport on two wheels is considered the most popular outdoor sport in Austria according to recent surveys. And not without reason, since pedaling a bike is considered a cure-all for exercise: it is easy on the joints, increases fitness and alleviates numerous ailments. Whether you're an ambitious professional biker or a leisurely recreational cyclist, the joy of nature and diversity is paramount on the many bike paths and tours in Saalbach Hinterglemm. The selection ranges from short, flat paths and up to challenging mountain routes.
Since cycling not only has the eco-advantage, but is also considered a fitness booster, it is therefore fully in line with the health trend. What does that mean exactly?
- The saddle bears a large part of the weight. The correct position on the bike therefore protects joints, ligaments and tendons.
- At the same time, the muscles get going through the steady movement, the cardiovascular system is challenged and fitness is trained.
- The quality of life is sustainably improved and general fitness increases.
- Cycling thus optimizes endurance, strength, mobility, balance and responsiveness.
- The alternation of relaxation and physical challenge in the great outdoors improves the holistic body feeling.
Cycling is one of the gentle endurance sports. The steady pedaling movements keep the joints in a firm even path, making painful twisting impossible. Pre-damaged joints benefit from this in that they are provided with new nutrients, allowing them to regenerate more effectively. The endurance sport continuously challenges the heart and circulation and stimulates the metabolism. In addition, the steady movement is more beneficial to the muscles than jogging, for example. Anyone riding at around 15 kilometers per hour consumes an average of around 400 kilocalories per hour.

Get on your bike and nothing stands in the way of the fun.
