The Austrian Extreme Bike Race is a single stage unsupported bike adventure race through the Austrian mountains and the lakes of Salzkammergut starting and finishing in Graz. 2,800km paved roads with some gravel paths adding up to 57,000 meters elevation gain. The route was designed by Austrian adventurer Tani (Tanja) Hacker and shows all the beauty and diversity the Austrian landscape has to offer, including some very special secret places with intresting background stories. This is a race for those who love being out there alone seeking for adventure as well as for those who love competition and racing fellow riders. This race is for the international cycling community. The Abenteuer and Bergsportklub Graz is proudly looking forward to hosting this event, offering a unique adventure for all those intrested in getting to know the Austrian mountains and it´s lifestyle. We are looking forward to seeing you here next summer in Graz, the home of cycling in Austria!
