Best time of year
We ask all cyclists to please not bike all the way to the summit!! Please use only the allowed streets, in this case "Gerlitzen Mautstrasse" (Gerlitzen tollway) to Bodensdorf, for the descent! Mountain bikers do not use the trails as tourists, because they ride on the paths and are therefore excepted from the "Wegefreiheit" (path freedom).
Control your speed on the descent and pay attention to traffic. Above all, follow the "Mountainbike Fairplay" rules!

This beautiful bike ride begins at the foot of the Gerlitzen Alps in Annenheim. You can either take the gondola to the middle station of Gerlitzen or you can ride up B94 “Ossiacher See Strasse” and get on the bike path on the shores of the Ossiacher See (Lake Ossiach) at your first chance. Follow the bike path and you will soon reach the “Fischerweg” shortly before “Bodensdorf in St. Urban.” Take the “Fischerweg” back to B94. Soon you will reach “Gerlitzenstrasse” going towards “Tschöran.” After a few minutes on this path you take another left and follow the “Gerlitzen Mautstrasse” (Gerlitzen tollway) without any important turns until reaching the “Bergeralm” (Mountain & Spa Resort Feuerberg), which is the highest point of the bike ride. Take the same route to get back to the starting point!
A bus leaves from the Villach Main Station in regular intervals to Annenheim. You can also take the S2 train line from the main station to the Ossiacher See.
By car you can reach Annenheim on the A10 highway- exit at "Treffen-Ossiacher See" or if you are coming from Villach take B83 (Ossiacher Zeile) and turn onto B94 towards "Ossiacher See" and the Ossiacher See junction.
There are plenty of free parking spots in the Gerlitzen valley/gondola station parking lot.
