PRESS RELEASE: Saalfelden Leogang
This season has been a blast! We have already been treated to blistering summer weather, witnessed world-class events such as the UCI Downhill Mountain Bike World Cup and the BIKE Festival Saalfelden Leogang and experienced plenty of stoke and action on the trails. However, the season is far from over! Bikepark Leogang is still open until November 4.
While the days may be getting shorter and the weather might be turning a leaf, that is not a reason to put your bike in the shed and dust off your winter gear just yet. Keen riders can hit all the trails in Bikepark Leogang by taking the Asitzbahn until October 14. But even after the Asitzbahn closes shop, mountain bikers can still shred and make the most of the good weather, as the bottom part of the bike park is still accessible from October 15 to November 4 by using the Steinbergbahn. While trail maintenance will already be underway, which can limit the number of accessible trails on some days, riders can still hit trails and nail berms. So why not make the most of the year before the offseason blues kick in?!
Other than rocking the bike park, Saalfelden Leogang still has a big event on the cards after already putting on a show at the UCI Downhill World Cup and the BIKE Festival. All mountain bikers are invited to join the Fan Weekend from October 5-7; a weekend that guarantees stoke and bike action. Camping is free (except local tax) for the duration of the event.
To make your biking holiday absolutely perfect, special bike hotels such as Salzburger Hof, Rupertus, Bacher, Riederalm, Ritzenhof, Puradies and Hotel Der Löwe and competent bike shops such as Sport Mitterer or Sport 2000 Simon are at your service.
