Guided Bike Tours

Mid May to beginning of November

Pure nature, beautiful views and cool trails - three things that make a biking tour exceptional. Together with the Plose Bike School we experience the most beautiful places in South Tyrol on a mountain bike.

What awaits you? We explore the unique mountain scenery of the UNESCO World Heritage Dolomites on the eMountainbike in Villnöß, get a lot of depth meters on the Sellaronda MTB Tour and improve our riding technique on the Plose! We pedal around the Feldthurns mountain pasture and to the Stoanamandl peak and explore the best freeride trails around Brixen and its surroundings. You can experience some of the most magnificent attractions in South Tyrol on two wheels with guides from the Plose Bike school. Definitely not to miss is the great food at the mountain huts around Brixen. All this, plus a big smile on your face, awaits you on our guided bike tours!

Ride Fair! This routes lead across single trails, hiking trails and forest roads. Please note that these routes aren’t only used by bikers, so please respect others sharing the same paths, respect nature and agriculture! Close pasture gates, don't leave rubbish behind and wear the appropriate protective equipment for your own good!

Feldthurns Mountain Pasture Tour – the right combination makes the difference! (13.05. - 28.10.2021)

The Mountain Pasture Tour of Feldthurns is ideal for all those who would like to master meters in height on their own, rewarding oneself with a ride on a varied downhill trail. For this tour, you should bring a good basic fitness, as there are no steep ascents, but it is still continuously ascending. We start our tour above Feldthurns at approximately 1150 m and ride the forest roads to the Klausner Hütte mountain hut for a little refreshment. Rising above the tree line and with a stunning view of the Dolomites, we continue our ride using varied forest roads and trails to return to the starting point.

The tour to the Stoanamandl peak is a must do for every passionate mountain biker! We take the shuttle from Brixen or Natz to Spinges. On a steadily ascending forest road we make most of the altitude metres and treat ourselves in a rustic alpine hut. After another short, easy ascent, we reach the summit of the Stoanamandl, where a 360° panoramic view awaits us. Then, a seemingly endless trail descent begins, which brings us back to the starting point of the tour. Partly flowing and partly very rough forest paths, but also forest roads keep the promise.

That is why our guides take over the organisation of this high alpine enduro tour and accompany you on a challenging ride through the Sella Mountain Group in the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage since 2009, famous for the classic picture-postcard setting. Good body fitness mixed with agility and experience are essential on this tour.
