Welcome to the flow show! The GAHE LINE is a seemingly neverending ride (7.5 km!) from Hochsölden to Grünwald on the Giggijoch side of the BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN. It starts above the treeline and takes you into the woods with numerous berms and rollers.

 

You can combine the GAHE with the OLLWEITE, the HARBE & LETTN LINE to the incredibly long (16 km!!!) Long Line Giggijoch

Safety information

The GAHE LINE is a blue line, playful and fun. But it also holds quite a few challenges and is long – very long.

 

The BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN is all about coming together and having the best time on your mountain bike – no matter what your skill level is. So always take care of each other, show respect and support – also towards nature and all other people out there in the mountains and the valley.

 

> Please only ride existing, signposted trails and never trespass open meadows.

-> Avoid skidding, don’t cut switchbacks & leave no trace.

-> Stay alert, never scare animals and always close the pasture gates. In the REPUBLIC there’s always a chance of cattle on the trails and lines. Ride carefully and give them enough room.
