For fans of cycling there are many rewarding destinations and trips in and around Dorf Tirol/Tirolo. The easy cycle routes in the valley pass through orchards, historic village centres and on forest tracks through deciduous and mixed woodland.
The marked cycle routes along the Passer and Etsch rivers are especially well-suited to those wanting to take it easy and families with children. The former can be reached from Dorf Tirol via the Alter Tirolersteig, whilst the Etsch Valley cycle path can be joined via Gnaidweg.
In contrast, mountain bikers and lovers of flowing trails can let off steam on alpine tracks and in the mountainous terrain around Meran and in the Vinschgau/Venosta valley. For cycling-mad visitors, moreover, from Monday to Friday a convenient bike shuttle service is available that carries riders and bikes from Dorf Tirol to Meran and back.
