Sporting challenge or adventure in nature – on the legendary pass routes in the Passeiertal Valley, racing cyclists will find plenty of both! Steep rockfaces, lush green meadows and huge white ice giants dominate the scenery along the endless serpentine roads that lead up to Jaufenpass pass and Timmelsjoch pass. The Jaufenpass pass (2,094m) links the Passeiertal Valley to the Eisacktal Valley. The 31km long road is highly diverse and offers fantastic views. The Timmelsjoch pass (2,509m) links the Passeiertal Valley to the Austrian Ötztal. 29km in length and with 1800m altitude gain, this is one of the most challenging passes in the Alps – making it the ideal training ground for the annual Ötztaler Bike Marathon
, which attracts racing cyclists from near and far each year to the Passeiertal Valley.
