We hosted an Equatours Summer Spin for the first time in 2017, which took Ingo, Wendy and 10 Equatours guests to the beautiful region of Salzburg and Austria’s highest mountain, Grossglockner. A fabulous cycling trip, it included a 120km warm-up spin around Zell-am-See, before the group tackled the magnificent mountain pass, which is often described as one of the toughest climbs in Europe.
While not a long ride (it’s 12.9km from the toll gate to the top), the average gradient on Grossglockner is 10%, and while the spectacular mountain scenery made the climb that little bit easier, it was a challenge for even the most experienced cyclists amongst us!
Here’s what a few members of the group had to say…
The Summer Spin in Kaprun was indeed great! A nice break and many good memories!
Thanks a lot, I will be back in 2018, who can resist a Summer Spin with Equatours 🙂

Thank you for the itinerary, I so enjoyed Austria and I’m looking forward to next year’s trip already!! I would love to join. I saw Lisa last week, we met up and talked about the proposed trip so it is great to put it in the diary.

Thank you again for a wonderful stay in Kaprun and fantastic rides. Creditable as always. Kari and I would like to book for the Summer Spin 2018. It looks like a fantastic ride 😊

I hope you are both well and your legs have recovered from Grossglockner. I had an absolutely amazing time in Austria and I just loved cycling in that area of Austria. Already looking forward to the 2018 Summer Spin!
Due to the success of the tour, we have already planned our Summer Spin for 2018, which will take us to Bormio in Italy and 3 awe-inspiring mountain passes. 90% of these years guests have already signed up for next year, and Team Equatours cannot wait to do it all again!
