The Ötztal valley is a paradise for bikers. Get to know the area in an unobtrusive and polite way. Quiet trail passages along the Ötztal Ache river spare your powers and give plenty of time for enjoying the landscape along the way. Brief ascents are followed by relaxing even passages. In safe distance to the main road you get to the village of Sautens. Your first station is a peaceful village with narrow roads and old buildings and guesthouses.
Between Sautens and Oetz you ride along softly-descending meadows on the western side of the valley. Broad gravel roads alternate with quiet, remote asphalt streets. Only between the villages of Oetz and Habichen the first, brief ascents have to be conquered. The surroundings offer all nature lovers can ask for. Broad Alpine meadows that carpet the area in green, shady mountain forests, bubbly mountain brooks that are flanked by old Tirolean farm houses.
