The Tannheimer Tal has been known among cyclists for quite some time, because in 2001 the retinue of the Tour of Austria Bicycle Tour went through the valley. In 2005 the cycling pros of the Tour of Bavaria came to Tyrolean soil at the opening stage and were rewarded with the mountain classification Tannheimer Tal and the mountain classification Jungholz. And even professionals noticed the scenic attractions of the "probably most beautiful high valley in Europe". Lush green meadows, the Haldensee and a beautiful mountain scenery accompanied the cycling pros on their competition kilometres. And thus the Tannheimer Tal has also advertised itself as an ideal region for targeted training or extended tours. "The Tannheimer Tal is an ideal starting point for long racing bike tours to the surrounding regions such as Lake Constance or the Arlberg", says Michael Keller, managing director of the tourism association Tannheimer Tal and former national mountain bike coach of Austria. Cyclists find in the Tannheimer Tal not only the ideal starting point but also a wide range of accommodation. You can choose your accommodation from a 5-star house to a private room. After a nice ride you can relax and recharge your batteries. - The Tannheimer Tal

It should be noted that in road cycling there is an increased risk of accidents and injuries. Despite careful tour planning, a basic risk always remains. Tour preparation through endurance sports, appropriate training and further education as well as personal prudence reduces the risk of accidents and injuries.
The personal equipment must be safe and serviceable and meet the relevant technical standards. Every racing cyclist is recommended to obtain information about the planned tours from specialist literature or on site. Complete racing bike equipment is strongly recommended, even for experienced cyclists!
