Some say that once you try an e-bike, you'll never go back to your unassisted bike again. To test this idea, and to be convinced of its accuracy, head to the first "E-Bikefest" in St. Anton am Arlberg from 22nd to 24th June 2018. Since the opening of the "EldoRADo" bike area in summer 2017, the Tyrolean holiday region has been a popular destination for cyclists of all kinds, whether e-fans or (still) electro-skeptics.
At the "E-Bikefest", everything revolves around fun on two wheels—and all with a little extra power. On two specially created test tracks near the arlberg-well.com event center, you can set off on test rides or test your knowledge on all things bike-safety. And if you have questions, feel free to ask the plethora of professionals that will attend the event, and get some insight from those who know best. If you arrive without a bike, there are six different rental stations in town—and then the fun can begin. Over nine rides, we have planned everything you need, from the short taster round to the action-packed day program, all for your perfect (e-)bike adventure around St. Anton am Arlberg.
