E-Bike tour with athelte Lisa Unterweger: really recommendable!
The myth that e-bikes are only for the unathletic has long been proven to be untrue. On the contrary: many athletes like to use the e in the bike for their tours and training. Lisa Unterweger, Austrian cross-country skier, was on tour with the e-bike together with the whole family during her stay in Seefeld. Her conclusion? E-bikes are really cool! In this article she describes her tour.
Fun for everyone: e-bikes for top athletes and the whole family
During my last training camp in Seefeld I had a really great experience. Together with my family I discovered the most beautiful places in the region on my e-bike. Many people ask me why I need an e-bike as a competitive athlete. But I can only recommend the e-bike to you. Even for me it is a help, because it allows me to climb the steepest climbs in the lowest pulse range. And on top of that, it’s a lot of fun!
The e-bike also makes it possible for the whole family to go on tour together. Everyone can decide how much “power” to use additionally. So my parents, my sister, my boyfriend Tobias Habenicht, who is also a professional cross-country skier, and I could explore the region together. I used this opportunity to show my family the wonderful Seefeld, which they knew only from winter and my competitions there. The weather was perfect, everyone had a bike and so the adventure could start.
From Seefeld via Mösern to lake Möserer See
We started from the Hotel Bergland and crossed the Pfarrhügel (parish hill) to the WSC-Arena where the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships took place in winter. From there we took the bike route towards Mösern and to our first destination, the Möserer See. Once we arrived there, everyone was enchanted by the lake that is surrounded by idyllic mountains. Apart from us, there were some visitors and hikers who enjoyed the lake – even a swimmer jumped into the lake despite the already cool temperatures.
Lake Lottensee, Wildsee and Wildmoosalm
After the first short stop, we followed the bike route towards Lottensee. This lake is a-periodic , which means it is not always “visible”. For me it was the first time that it was filled with water, even if only a little at the end of the season. A short photo stop and on we went past the Golfclub Seefeld-Wildmoos to our next destination. That was the lake Wildmoossee, another natural phenomenon and for me always a “wow experience”. I already know the area from winter, but also in summer it is worth a visit. After another quick stop for pictures, we went on to the Wildmoosalm and from there to our last and final destination.
From the Wildmoosalm to Leutasch and back to Seefeld
From the Wildmoosalm we headed towards Leutasch. While we crossed the Katzenkopf, we were rewarded with gorgeous views. The Leutaschtal valley and its villages are beautiful and unspoiled. We took the route back through the Fludertal valley to the Wildmoosalm. From there we took the fastest way back to the hotel, where dinner was already waiting for us.
My conclusion: Simply really beautiful!
This circular tour took us about 2h, of course with some breaks to marvel at the great places. Those who like to take it slowly and enjoy longer breaks at the lakes and places should plan around 4 hours. We all had a lot of fun. Thanks to the Cube E-Bikes we could all experience everything together. Try it out! There will definitely be a next time for us!
