The mountain bike trekking route

A mountain bike trekking route is characterised by length, altitude and condition and is divided into three levels of difficulty.

A mountain bike trekking route consists of segments of forest paths, single trails and shared trails – here the tarmac content can be greater than 50%.

By implication, this means that a mountain bike trekking route often crosses over roads and forest paths. Therefore, you should always be ready for encounters with cars that claim the whole road or any commercial transport.

Levels of difficulty

The levels of difficulty of mountain bike trekking routes are divided the same as the mountain bike route. Blue marked routes are among the easiest, they are family-friendly and can often be mastered with normal bicycles due to the good road surface. Furthermore, this is a traffic-calmed zone. Red routes require advanced skills and a defensive driving behaviour – although adequate equipment is not necessary, it is recommended. Black marked routes must only be tackled by top athletes with the appropriate equipment.
