Road bike tour Reisstrasse

Open
This beautiful round trip is much more demanding than the tour data would suggest. Especially the descent via the Meranstrasse in the direction of Kleinlobming is extremely steep and winding. 
Die Tour führt uns von Spielberg über Zeltweg, Weißkirchen über die Reisstraße nach Kleinfeistritz und über die Meranstraße nach Kleinlobming.

More information

 

Take the S36 to the Spielberg exit (Zeltweg Ost) and then follow the signs to the Red Bull Ring.

We start at the Red Bull Ring and head west, after a few hundred metres (before Flatschach) we turn left. We pass the Zeltweg military airport. Be careful, there is a traffic light in the middle of the route - if it is red, please really stop - then you can watch a landing or take-off from the airport. At the main road turn right, heading west. At the roundabout we take the 3rd exit towards the railway station. We now follow the road to the railway station and from here we continue to follow the road. We continue towards the centre of Weißkirchen. Then we follow the road to the east, towards Kleinfeistritz. Here the gradient begins and we ride steadily uphill for the next few kilometres. From Kleinfeistritz we continue in the direction of Gaberl. The so-called Reisstrasse. We then meet the Gaberlstraße, this is more heavily used, especially by motorcyclists. After a few kilometres, the Meranstraße leaves to the left. A beautiful but in places very steep and winding route. Do not underestimate this part of the tour. From Kleinlobming we roll comfortably out into the valley and can orientate ourselves by the signs of the bicycle node system, which show us the way back to the Red Bull Ring. 
In Kleinlobming there is a well with drinking water on the village square. 
As the tour passes the Zeltweg railway station, it is very easy to join the tour. 
Extensive parking and refreshment facilities are available at the Red Bull Ring. Attention - the access road is closed during major events. As an alternative starting point, we would suggest the Zeltweg train station. Free parking is also available here - and you can start the tour directly.
