Have you ever cycled the Alp d’Huez or wanna train for it? Well they have the right track for you in Leogang it’s called the “Schwarzleo tour” also known as LE 02. It will take about two hours to finish the whole route. Start the tour at the Asitz bahn and start your climb up. After a few kilometers, you’ll pass the sign for almhutte Lindenalm and that’s worth a stop to enjoy her specialty Kaiserschamrr’n. Maybe you’ll think that’s to soon for a pitstop but believe me after the steep climb up and the speed of a snail, it’s very nice to take a break, for some people it’s even their only training to the Lindenalm and back.
Back on track you will experience a long climb uphill where you would like to head back to the village not knowing where the steep climb stops but keep going and enjoy the breathtaking views and in a few kilometers finally you’re approaching the middle station of the mountain.
From this point your bike adrenaline will go to the max with the most amazing cycle track all the way down to the Leogang village. Enjoy this track through beautiful mountain trees, panoramic views, great nature and breathe the fresh mountain air.
WoW this Schwarzleo Tour was ‘Anstrengend’ as well but worth the ride, don’t expect an easy ride but a tough work out instead. This video gives an impression of the last part, my best part, downhill.
