1st International Bike meet Maltatal Austria

Postby hochalmspitze » Tue Apr 19, 2011 10:26 pm

There is an annual event here on the first Sunday in July. It follows a pattern for local events; people gather, the priest blesses everyone, the band plays and then they all go for a beer!

Around 1,0000 bikes gather by the dam at the top of our valley. The road up the valley, the Maltahochalmstrasse, is spectacular, rising to almost 2,000m and passing numerous waterfalls along the route. The bikes line up on the dam itself and fill all the parking spaces around the dam. The priest rides up on his bike, blesses the bikes and then the party starts. They have a stage set up in the carpark and local rock bands play.

We are organising a weekend event to tie in with the bike blessing. Our town band will play on at our place on the Friday night. Saturday we will have organised ride outs to explore the area and live music for Saturday night. Sunday will be a mass ride to the dam join in the fun.

Rate for three nights at ours is 135 Euros per person, covers Bed Breakfast and evening meals
Stay with us in undiscovered Austria
English run biker hotel, garaging for up to 25 bikes,GPS downloads, printed routes, drying room, good food and beer. Free pass to Nockalmstrasse etc
