Would you like a short alpine cross?

Mini-Alpencross/day-Transalp as a 3-country tour, Bike & Rail (on the >100-year-old Karwendel Express route from Mittenwald to Innsbruck), from Innsbruck to the Brenner and then by bike via Brennerbad or the Sattelberg Alm on the Brenner Grenzkamm (old military slope in South Tyrol), past the Sandjöchl in the direction of Portjoch. Small sliding passage downhill and then down to refreshment at / in the natural monument Obernberger See. Magnificent views of the Stubai & Zillertal Alps and South Tyrol. Some really worthwhile single-trail variants, including down into the Pflerscher valley and then via the Brenner-Radl piste (old train route) back to the Brenner train station.

Tour variants depending on the participant's driving technique level and/or MTB or E-MTB as vehicle. Crunchy single trails are also possible, including the Geiers collar trail or from the Portjoch directly into the Pflerscher valley.
