Cycling does not simply mean getting from one place to another. The distraction it provides, the sheer riding pleasure, a collective sense of belonging and a passion for what you do, are the fundamentals of each ride. It also means enjoying nature in its purest form, being in touch with your body and achieving a goal. No matter what the destination, when you go on a ride the objective lies in the ride itself.
While cycling, one quickly learns to appreciate the sun and feel the sudden gusts of wind against ones body. You make new discoveries; you begin to notice little things that were previously passed over. But never fail to respect nature and the environment, paying special attention to the forces of nature that do not conform to our will and to which we have to learn to adapt. We need to be passionate, yet remain focussed. All this, you can learn at the Biking Hotel Sand in Venosta Valley. We’ll take care of the rest. Ötzi Bike Academy Quality Criteria
