Since summer 2017, the EldoRADo – Bike-Areal Verwall offers the opportunity to take a ride on a pump track, a type of off-road terrain consisting of a circuit of banked turns and features designed to be ridden completely by riders “pumping” – creating momentum by up and down body movements. Skilled riders are known to achieve a feeling similar to “gliding” over the track.
The biking area is supervised by two guides, kindly assisting guests during the opening hours (daily during summer, 10am to 6pm) with knowledgeable advice and plenty of useful tips.
Besides the pump track, the biking area also includes the obstacle course “Northshore Trail”, simulating real life conditions found in regional woods. Prove your skills and do not let tree trunks and stones stop you! A challenge for everyone, the course is appropriate for beginners as well as advanced riders.
If the regular course is too “horizontal” for you and you desire to experience more of a “flying sensation”, the three drop-offs may offer “the real deal” for you. These ramps are open to all bikers who have sufficiently trained on the pump track and the Northshore Trail, thereby perfecting their technique. If this is the case, you are free to jump as you please.
As a special highlight and an alternative to traditional mountain biking, the EldoRADo – Bike-Areal Verwall offers its guests an e-trial-parcour inviting to ride state-of-the-art electrically powered motocross bikes by KTM on a specifically designed track.
Besides the tracks for our adult guests, the biking area also offers young bikers a trail of their own. Whether it be on bikes or balance bicycles, the children’s course does not only offer fun and games, but also the opportunity to gain first experiences with obstacles.
If you do not have your own bike at disposal, it is possible to rent one directly on location. These rental bikes are available for a half-day fee of € 15 or an hourly fee of € 5. Also, protective gear such as helmet, knee and elbow pads can be rented for € 10. The pump track, the Northshore Trail and the three drop-offs are open to rental and personal bikes.
However, the e-trial parcour can only be used with the electrically powered motocross bikes. These are to be rented for a fee of € 39 and come with all the necessary protective gear such as shirt, helmet, pads, boots and gloves.
Please also take note of the age limits, which are 12 for the pump track and 18 for the e-trial. For the whole area, wearing a helmet is compulsory! Come by and test your skills on the various tracks of the EldoRADo – Bike-Areal Verwall!
