Frequently Asked Questions


When should I go on my cycling trip?
Anytime from May to October is perfect for cycling. Be prepared for hot days during the month of July and August.

Where can I rent a bike?
Intersport Rent offers discounts on bike hire in Austria when booking online, and they'll have the bike ready to go as soon as you get there. So you'll not just save money, but also precious holiday time. 

How can I transport my bike while in Austria?
The Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) offer substantial services for cyclists. Practically all local trains will carry your bikes in the baggage car. For long-distance trains (IC or EC trains) carefully check the timetable for a bicycle symbol next to the train number. You will need to purchase a ticket for your bike and personally bring it to the baggage car for loading. This will make sure that your bike will be on the same train with you.

What do I need to watch out for?
Austrian law sets specific requirements for bicycle equipment: at least two independently operating brakes, a clear headlight and a red taillight, yellow reflectors on the pedals, at least one white or yellow reflector in the spokes of each wheel and a clear sounding bell as a warning signal.
There is no helmet law for bicycles but we highly recommend the use of a helmet, especially if you travel on roads shared by other vehicles.
