Day 1: Sattelbauer – Hochgründeck
We start from the Hotel Stegerbräu and cycle along the Roman Way to Altenmarkt, after which the road has a few hairpin bends to Winterbauer Hotel – then on gravel roads and forest paths to the 1st Checkpoint at Sattelbauer, where this beautifully located mountain inn invites you to take a short break. From 1280 m above sea level, we cycle downhill to Flachau. From here the new C-Edition route first leads along the bike path to Wagrain, followed by the ascent over the Ginausattel to the 2nd checkpoint – not particularly steep, but a long ride to top of the Hochgründeck ridge at 1800m. We have earned the break here and enjoy the wonderful panorama – before we ride down to Eben over the Aigenberg and return to the Hotel Stegerbräu in Radstadt.
Day 2: Trail across Rossbrand and Mandlberg
Fully recharged by the breakfast buffet, we go from Radstadt to Altenmark and from there up to the Reitlehenalm – over gravel and a charming forest trail we then conquer a sharp push section until we come via moorland paths to the Rossbrand high plateau – our Checkpoint 3. The effort is rewarded with a 360 ° panoramic view and of course we get to enjoy that while taking a break. From the Rossbrand it goes on a variety of natural trails towards the Papageno ski lift and Schörgi Alm hut and finally on to Checkpoint No. 4 – the Mandlberggut distillery. This alm restaurant not only offers homemade treats to eat but is also a schnapps and mountain pine distillery. From the Mandlberg, the trail then goes downhill to Mandling and over the Taurachweg back to Radstadt – past the golf course and then back to the hotel.
Day 3: The Kings Tour with the Tauern crossing
Cycling together from Radstadt along the Enns cycle trail to Mandling – from there over the Eibenberg to Forstau to Checkpoint No. 5 and on to the Vögei Alm. Make sure to fill up with water, because here’s a demanding ascent to Oberhüttensee (Checkpoint no. 6). A really idyllic place. The mountain lake may be ice cold – but some dare to jump into the water, others are content with a foot bath. We need to recharge our batteries, because then a sweaty ascent awaits us, including an approx. 45 minute pushing and carrying section over the Seekarscharte (highest point at 2100m) to the top of the pass in Obertauern – our Checkpoint no.7.
When everyone has inhaled enough mountain air and enjoyed the alpine mountain views – it’s downhill on a varied trail to the Gnadenalmen (Checkpoint no. 8). We then take a short detour to the beautiful Johannes waterfall,a must see, before we go via the Mayerl alm to Untertauern and then the bike path past the golf course to reach our destination at Hotel Stegerbräu.
