of cycling and mountain biking routes, single trails and bike parks.
In addition to three bike parks, 920 kilometers of bike trails, 5,600 kilometers of officially approved mountain bike routes and 230 kilometers of officially approved single trails lead through the heart of the Alps.
The Mountain Bike Model Tyrol is thereby the reliable guidance system throughout the state. The uniform classification and clear signage facilitates orientation and ensures that families with children, pleasure cyclists, mountain bikers and single trail riders, as well as risk-taking downhillers find their ideal route. At the same time, certain rules of conduct ensure that the unique Tyrolean mountain world remains so.

Similar to ski slopes and hiking trails, approved mountain bike trails are also divided into difficulty levels. In essence, the slope conditions, but also the path condition are decisive for the classification into easy, moderately difficult, difficult and extremely difficult routes.
- Easy routes are marked in blue.
These are family-friendly cycling routes that can also be ridden with normal bicycles and have a good road surface. Gradient and slope are on average between 0 and 5 percent. On blue routes, no special danger areas occur or danger spots are indicated by special marking with signs.
- Medium difficulty routes are marked red.
These are routes that require athletic cycling skills and particularly defensive driving behavior. Grades and slopes average between 5 and 12 percent. On red routes, unclear, winding sections occur, also with motor vehicle traffic, which takes up the entire width of the path, must be reckoned with.
- Difficult routes are marked in black.
These are challenging mountain bike routes with numerous moments of danger, which exceed the maximum gradient of the red route and whose route characteristics are even more difficult. A situation-adapted anticipatory driving is required.
Single trails are marked yellow.
- Single trails are extreme and demanding routes that would not be passable by cars. Drive carefully: on yellow trails there is a risk of falling, because in some cases there are no safety devices such as railings. Also expect obstacles such as high steps, roots and boulders and not passable pushing and carrying stretches.
In addition, the single trails are divided into different difficulty classes, blue for easy (S0, S1) red for moderately difficult (S2) and black for difficult (S3-S5). Trail conditions, gradients, obstacles, curves and driving technique are criteria for classification.
The classification of the bike parks is in blue (easy), red (moderately difficult) and black (difficult).
