Kühtai has already achieved legendary status in Tirol's local road bike scene and features in many races such as the Tour of Austria. Every year it is also the first of four major climbs which make up the Ötztal Bike Marathon. The ride from Innsbruck to the Ötztal Valley, up to Kühtai and back down through the Sellraintal Valley to Innsbruck is an absolute classic. With 110km of riding and 1,720 vertical meters of ascent it is a challenging route which rewards riders with magnificent views of the Ötztal and Stubai Alps. There are plenty of quaint villages along the way where riders can stop off for a meal.
