E-Bike Austrian Lakes 2021

Exercise that's fun!

Cycle through scenic lake landscapes on developed bike paths

We start our E-Bike journey in Salzburg, the festival centre and Mozart’s birthplace.  Picturesque lakes, turquoise blue water, snow-capped peaks and Austrian culinary delights as well as a perfectly developed cycle path network await you on this tour through the Austrian Lake district.

After our Austrian Lakes E-Bike tour we have three nights in Salzburg and enjoy a Fraulein Maria Bicycle Tour and a cooking class at the Edelweiss Cooking School.

Quality E-Bikes

On our Austrian Lakes E-Bike tour, we use Riese &  Müller e-bikes.                                                           

There are many areas where the Riese & Müller e-bikes stand out in comparison to other brands.
Riese & Müller e-bikes offer exactly what is needed in terms of sizes, technology, style, elegance, utility and more.
Their e-bikes utilize some of the highest quality lights, seats, brakes, tyres and fenders in the business, and they exclusively utilize Bosch motors and batteries (two big reasons why service needs on a Riese & Müller bike are few and far between).
Additionally, each bike is hand built in Germany at a time when a lot of the other brands opt for cheaper manufacturing.

Your Tour Leader: Helen Tait

Helen lives in Christchurch and is a keen skier, cyclist and tramper. She has led tours for Tours Direct for over 10 years, and loves sharing her enthusiasm for a wide range of places and cultures.   She specially likes to share walking and cycling tours, at a relaxed pace suited to travellers for whom this might be a first.   She has worked as a cycling guide in New Zealand, taking visitors and locals on high profile trails such as Alps to Ocean and the Otago Rail Trail, as well as some hidden gems, and she led the first cycle tour for Tours Direct, along the picturesque Danube.   She is a convert to E-biking and now finds she no longer needs excuses to avoid biking up to her hillside home.

We were completety happy with her care and attention. She has a lovely personality, and we would happily go on another tour with her.

Helen was great, never appeared hassled although she must have felt it at times. Always clear with instructions and showed concern for each of the group and very willing to sort any problems. Really well prepared and organised.
