Although e-biking is often frowned upon as the new light type of mountain biking, those who have tried it and use it a lot will also earn their exercise metres and, above all, metres of altitude. If you do not want to climb the Kitzbühel Alps and the Leoganger Steinberge mountains exclusively with your own muscle power, you can treat yourself to charged batteries before heading towards the summit victory. 720 km of marked routes around the Bikehotel Leogang, the Riederalm, provide orientation, and with the e-bike almost everything is possible. The alpine feeling can be particularly enjoyed on numerous high-altitude trails. In order to avoid running out of 'juice' on the way, many huts around Leogang offer charging stations for e-bikes. So enjoyable cycling also has a lot to do with a little battery support when pedalling. Altitude metres and extreme inclines are suddenly relatively easy to climb, the e-bike makes it possible!
The power savings in e-biking at the same speed in relation to the purely muscular bike is on average about 30 percent. Specifically, an e-biker can complete the triple distance as a cyclist without the assistance of a motor at twice the cadence rate at the same time. This means that even under moderate load, more extensive and exciting tours are possible, even in the event of headwinds and climbs!
Find your perfect tour, depending on the desired route length, ascent and route guidance and enjoy the opportunity to explore the mountain world effortlessly and enjoy the surroundings to the fullest. Flowing trails and tracks also give you the kick you need for an exciting day on the bike.

Start at the Good Life Resort Riederalm into the unspoiled and quiet Schwarzbachtal valley, from where the climb leads to just below the mountain station of the Asitzbahn mountain lift. If you don't feel like pedalling, you can also take the Asitzbahn mountain lift. From there it descends downhill on the beautiful, varied trail with northshores and rooted passages, until you get back on a forest road. Then follow it for about 400 metres to the 2nd. part of the trail. Pass the Matzalm and continue downhill over the Embachalm.
