Steep Alpine passes surrounded by breathtaking panoramic views, well developed bikeways through plantations and vineyards in lush valleys, easy temperatures in Spring and Fall and of course the Alpine-Mediterranean style wine taverns along the way call for your next road bike adventure in South Tyrol. Curvy roads and undisturbed wilderness way beyond 2000 meters of altitude make the Timmelsjoch, the Penserjoch, the Mendelpass, the Jaufenpass, the Sellajoch, the Stilfserjoch and the Staller Sattel prime destinations for road biking. In lower spheres, underneath the windblown mountain passes, you will find perfectly paved bikeways in the Vinschgau, Eisacktal, Burggrafenamt and the Pustertal - designed for you to go fast on them. High standard also expects you off the road as Tyrol offers you hefty local snacks and a prize-winning haute cuisine.
