Bikepark Leogang is developing the ‘Rider’s Playground’

Saalfelden Leogang in Salzburger Land, Austria, June 23rd 2016 – Bikepark Leogang is a biking paradise in the Austrian Alps and beginners also feel more than comfortable here. Bikepark Leogang is further developing the ‘Rider’s Playground’ for rookies and slightly more experienced riders and therefore closing the gap between the easy training trails at the bottom station and the more sophisticated tracks in the park itself.

“This concept has already proven its value in the winter season und will also make bike enthusiasts happy as well. In order to make this possible the Riederfeldlift, which is usually closed during the summer, has been fitted with additional t-bars, so it can also be used by mountain bikers in the summer”, explains Kornel Grundner, CEO of the Leoganger Bergbahnen. Thanks to the new anchor lift, riders will be able to transport their bike easily to where they will be able to discover the new, easy freeride trails.

Similar to the winter season, this new opportunity makes it possible for beginners to strive towards more challenging exercises and improve their riding skills. From July 2nd, the training area offers a bigger variety for bike rookies big and small and consists of flat terrain including a pumptrack, a conveyor belt with trails for newbies and the new anchor lift, taking riders to more challenging tracks. No matter whether guests just want to spend the weekend and try the easy routes or systematically prepare themselves for the more difficult trails on the mountain Asitz, everyone will be able to find perfect riding and training conditions.

The ‘Rider’s Playground’ in Bikepark Leogang is the world’s biggest bike park for beginners. Numerous lines with rollers, doubles, tables, wallrides and berms as well as a battery of drops, a freeride course and a pumptrack belong to the highlights. As soon as riders have grasped the fundamentals they can challenge themselves on the more sophisticated trails such as the new flow-trail “HOT SHOTS – fired by GoPro”, which is available to beginners as well as to more experienced riders. Alternatively they can put their skills to the test on the track “Hang Man II”, which takes them from middle station on the east side to the station in the valley and guarantees lots of two-wheeled fun. An overview of all the trails in the bike park can be found here.
