KABONG! This is not the battle cry of the intrepid biker crew set out to pass this crisp tour. KABONG is the - admittedly extraordinary - name of the sporty round, which is made up of the first letters of the places you drive through: Kronberg, Attersee, Berg, Oberwang, Nussdorf, and (St.) Georgen. Great paths, wonderful views, cozy villages and a stop at the idyllic Attersee await you. And somehow this name just fits too well not to start exactly like this: "KABONG - let's go!"The start of the tour is in St. Georgen, a small market town in the middle of the picturesque Attergau. You can get here by train, but you can also travel individually and park your car in town. At the tourist information you can pick up a few tips and stock up on spare parts, energy bars or a complete rental bike in the bike shop next door. And then - KABONG - it finally starts.To warm up, the route begins with a moderate climb, which is a little lengthy. However, the higher you go, the greater the anticipation for the first big highlight: You can enjoy the great view of Lake Attersee again and again. After a rapid descent, you will reach Nussdorf, where a detour to the lake shore is absolutely worthwhile.Strengthened and cooled, you are ready for the second long climb of the day. It leads you to the 934-meter-high Zwerchbühel, where nothing else awaits you than pure idyll and wonderful tranquility. A cozy lumberjack hut invites you to take a break: it's best to pack some provisions that you can enjoy here completely undisturbed.Another flowy descent now ensures pure enjoyment. Most of the vertical meters are done anyway - from now on the route is much flatter and the climbs are not that long anymore. Nevertheless, it goes up again: from the observation tower on the Lichtenberg you have a particularly good view of the Traunstein, the Höllengebirge, the Attersee and the Dachstein. Enjoy it again before you take the last downhill that will take you back to St. Georgen. When you get here, you will take a deep breath: "KABONG - it was nice"!
