The renowned Tour de Mur cycle bike ride, which extends over 300km to the distant town of Bad Radkersburg, starts in St Michael’s neighbouring town of Muhr.
The Tour de Mur is recommended for anyone from beginners to professionals and is perfect for anyone who enjoys sightseeing on 2 wheels as the journey is the destination, and there are of course plenty of tempting refreshment stops along the way!
It’s a three-day fun ride, following the River Mur through some of Austria’s most beautiful countryside and is open to riders of all experience levels. The Tour de Mur cycle is Austria’s finest bike ride and takes it’s name from Austria’s second-longest river, starting in Lungau, flowing through Styria and stretching down towards the border with Slovenia.
Riders who complete the entire tour will descend a total of 1,675 vertical metres, although there’s no obligation to complete it.
As well as being breathtakingly beautiful, the entire route is barrier free, so it’s possible to cover a lot of distance in a relatively short time.
