1st Kufsteinerland cycling marathon on September 11th, 2016

An exciting cycling race with bike expo and supporting programme

Hot asphalt, screeching tires, burning thigh muscles and wonderful scenery: On September 11th, 2016, Kufsteinerland hosts the first Kufsteinerland cycling marathon. Rolling hills alternating with challenging ascent are typical of the landscape in the cycling race area. The demanding climbing sections are rewarded with wonderful views. As well as the cycling marathon on September 11th, the event also offers visitors a bike expo with cycling innovations, lots of bargains and culinary highlights.

The routes: "Marathon" and "Relaxed circuit"

There are two different routes that participants in the Kufsteinerland cycling marathon can select from. Regardless of whether participants decide on the "marathon" or the leisurely "relaxed circuit", there are wonderful views and plenty of landscape highlights awaiting them. The marathon is a total of 131 kilometres long and climbs approx. 1,600 meters: an ambitious route. Ascents of 400 meters within 3.5 kilometres even get the pros sweating. Cyclists on the relaxed circuit take it a little easier: the 62 kilometre route, with approx. 450 meters altitude gain, is not short on natural beauty. There is a police motorbike convoy on the routes. Along the route participants can recharge at two snack stations.
