Non-stop thrills -- Saalbach-Hinterglemm

March 14, 2016
A break that involves a pure adrenaline rush -- this is the essence of Saalbach Hinterglemm in summer. 5000 m in altitude and 57 km of riding -- that is the Big-5-Challenge mammoth freeride tour. Go up by cable car and down by bike.
But it is not just cycling here. There is als the zipwire. Zipwiring is when you go shooting across a valley, attached to a wire by a sturdy harness and hooks, but not much else. You are bulletting, Bond-style, across a vavine, with nothing underneath you but pure Alpine air. It is the longest zipwire in Europe -- two kilometres of wire and 100 m above the valley floor.
