The world's best designers & shapers
Our professional local team of extremely dedicated trail builders is collaborating with the world’s most renowned trail designers: Glen Jacobs, Chris Bernhard, Chris Kehmeier, Joscha Forstreuter, Lukas Häusler and the experts of the Allegra Tourism crew. Their experience, diligence and creativity form unique tracks beautiful to ride and beautiful to look at. The BIKE REPUBLIC, therefore, boasts versatile, finely maintained and sustainable tracks – a unique terrain.
Enjoy your meal
The huts are numerous, the dishes impressive - in the BIKE REPUBLIC there are more than 30 mountain restaurants and alpine huts where you can fuel up after all the riding down.
Sustainable Trail Building
There is a lot more to building a track than just moving earth and rocks – especially when you want to create a great and sustainable ride that blends into nature. We are strong advocates for sustainable trail building, because we love nature and because working with nature is always the most rewarding and long-lasting way. By minimizing the impact on the environment – from careful planning phases to handwork replacing machines – our tracks are easy to maintain and beautiful to ride.
Let's talk Ötztalerisch
An independent Republic deserves to speak its own, special tongue. Thus, the (truly unique) Ötztal dialect names all our lines and trails underlining their character – and making it a big challenge for many to pronounce. Never mind, at the end of the tracks you will know that the Eebme Line stands for pure, seemingly endless flow, the Harbe Line is one you want to ride again and again, and the Zaahe Line is pushing you to your limits.
