The (e)-cycling fashion has really caught on

It has been one of the buzz words of recent times, and this year it is again on everybody’s lips. It has the tourism professionals rejoicing; the economy loves it; and the sheer number of fans and enthusiasts unmistakably speaks the language of ‘electro-mobility’!

(e)Cycling has really caught on

This popular hit (with its electrical back-up) has also made a big debut in Central Carinthia!

There are electric bikes ready and waiting for you to set off exploring the Central Carinthia Region “pushing your own pedals”. If you don’t fancy cycling alone, you can even hire a guide to keep you company and to tell you more about the surrounding area and its best sights.

Nine selected e-bike routes – all fully signposted – offer a new tourist attraction for locals and tourists alike, allowing them to discover the Region in an environmentally-friendly way. Each route has its own specially designated theme, which it is for “the cyclist” to explore: Water, Culture, Energy, Gourmet, Metnitztal, Tibet, Görtschitztal, Drau and Wörthersee.

The advantages of e-vehicles are obvious: an electric motor makes bikes or cars more than adequate, environmentally-friendly alternatives to conventional cars and mopeds &c. You can broaden the horizons of your activities effortlessly and you are no longer restricted to joining the traffic on the public road network.

Hiring (e)bikes

E-bikes may be hired from May to October – depending on weather conditions this period may be extended or curtailed.

Look forward to joining this mega-trend of leisure time fun with electric-vehicles - and experience our beautiful homeland for yourself with a fresh pair of eyes.
