Downhill riders and mountain bikers will enjoy the challenging, steep routes here. Although these can be strenuous and difficult, the feeling of happiness at the summit or the adrenalin rush as you descend into the valley below makes it all worthwhile. Leisure-minded bikers opt instead for flatter routes and cycle tours on which natural attractions invite them to linger in between. Getting exercise is perhaps of top priority when cycling or maybe simply experiencing the Alps on holiday at the Arlberg is enough. Either way, the huts along the bike trails will invite you to rest and take a well-deserved break. This will allow you to enjoy the best of both worlds in addition to the typical hospitality prevalent in Lech Zürs am Arlberg.
E-Bikes in Lech Zürs
E-bikes and e-mountain bikes are becoming increasingly popular. Though the electric bike doesn’t do all the work and the cyclist still has to pedal, the electric motor makes cycling easier. The motor is especially handy on the mountain and ensures that you can ride through the mountain landscape at higher speeds on flat tracks. If you don’t have your own e-bike, e-bikes and e-mountain bikes can be rented in Lech Zürs at bicycle rental shops that offer single or multi-day rentals. Additionally, the bike stations also organise guided e-bike tours throughout the landscape of Lech Zürs am Arlberg.
The Burgwald Biketrail
Single trails and North Shore trails can be found at the Burgwald Biketrail, the first Freeride and Enduro are in Vorarlberg. Beginner mountain bikers and the ambitious will have the opportunity to spend plenty of time here, to train and to explore their limits. The trail is located right next to the Bergbahn Lech-Oberlech cable car and the Petersboden chairlift. The difficulty levels on the trails cater to cyclists of different abilities. As a result, the tried and tested colour scale of the ski slope has been adopted here as well: blue = easy, red = easy, red = easy. Berms and wooden curves, North Shore elements and drops challenge the bikers on the Burgwald Trail. Without a doubt, however, the highlights in Burgwald are the 50-m-long Anaconda-North Shore Element, the Skinny Boardwalk and the Patrese jump with a double road gap.
