SPEED & MOMENTUM

Cycling along the roads of the Inn Valley, through idyllic villages and with wonderful views: the towns and villages in the Innsbruck region offer a wide range of options for more than just mountain biking. The area also provides ideal terrain for road cyclists. Numerous bike paths criss-cross the region. The roads to the surrounding villages are well developed and many places offer paved country roads with little traffic. If you would rather take on some big climbs, there are of course also challenging routes available. However, many are possible with only moderate gains in elevation.

A gentle round tour that invites bikers to conquer a few vertical metres in the sun from spring to autumn. The optical highlight: Hohe Munde mountain by Telfs. The cultural highlight: a visit to Stams Abbey. The tour starts and finishes in Innsbruck.


Route: 


Not much uphill, great views: Even cyclists without alpine experience can enjoy stunning mountain views on this round tour to the idyllic and sunny Mieming Plateau. The route starts on the Inn Cycle Path in Innsbruck, which is an easy and traffic-free trail that leads out of the city. The route then continues along the south side of the River Inn to Völs, where it joins the main road. Cyclists ride through the villages of Inzing, Hatting and Flaurling and pass a few traditional guesthouses on the way.


The highlights:


The cultural highlight is a visit to Stams Abbey, which is also well worth combining with a stop at the monastery Orangerie. The route leaves the main road in Mötz and joins a paved cycle path for the first uphill section. This first climb is relatively steep.


However, the reward is not long in coming: the Mieming Plateau offers fantastic views over green meadows and fields to the rugged Wetterstein mountains. The Locherboden pilgrimage church is also a lovely feature of the landscape and can be seen on the approach to the plateau. From Mieming, the route leads gently downhill to Telfs and then follows the path along the quiet northern bank of the River Inn back to Innsbruck. From Zirl, cyclists can enjoy views of the Martinswand rock face, a popular destination for climbers from the nearby city.


Tips:


The steep section can be avoided by following the more gently inclined main road but there is often a lot of traffic. We recommend doing the tour anti-clockwise because the section from Mieming down to Telfs follows the main road and it’s easier for cyclists to flow with the traffic when doing this section downhill.



Arrival, public transport


Along the Inn Valley, it is always possible to continue by train. On the Mieming Plateau, there are buses that run to and from Innsbruck.

Forecast

Our region is at the heart of a large area of low pressure! What sounds dramatic here will turn out to be harmless: the conditions in the centre of a low are always more stable and calmer than in marginal areas. The day will therefore bring more bright spells and less frequent thunderstorms than yesterday.

Tendency

The trend is positive: even if there is still little change expected for tomorrow, a new area of high pressure will mark the beginning of an improvement on Thursday.
