>>>Green Mountain Bike World Cup Schladming Planai
Sporting events have become an important commercial factor for the district of Liezen. They help to insure that the local community are identified along with the event and the athletes. Again and again with great pride, the city of Schladming is noted as a City of World Championship events. At the same time large scale events can have a big effect on the environment and therefor many ecological and social issues may arise.
The following measures have been taken into consideration during the planning and implementation of the Mountain Bike World Cup.
Fair play in the forest - the first Austrian mountian bike learning track.
Establishment of the first Austrian mountain bike trail - a contribution to the environment and its sustainability.
A Folder "FAIR PLAY in the forest" should make the tips and rules of conduct widely available.
Mobility - "away from the car and on to the bike - more trails on foot"
- ÖBB-Combi ticket: - up to 60 % dicount on travel
Minus 10 % on day tickets and 3 Tagespass for only €15,-
