5 Easy, Beautiful Bikes Rides Near Innsbruck

Innsbruck isn't all steep single trail, it's also home to some non-technical, scenic rides which are easily accessed and well served by mountain huts!

Description

The combination of huge mountains, a network of cable cars and reliable weather make Innsbruck a fabulous place for bikers to head. The town is perhaps best known for its technical biking but there are also 1000s of kilometres of jeep tracks in the hills above Innsbruck, and these provide virtually endless opportunities for easy, stress-free biking.

The routes listed here are all suitable for beginners, but several of them will require a good level of fitness, so bear in mind that the "easy" part only refers to the technical level - you'll still need a bit of grunt to get them all done!

As with so many of the adventures around Innsbruck, these can all be reached using the city's excellent public transport network, and all 5 will take you to at least one Tirolian mountain hut!
