You can of course rock the trails every day between the beginning of April and the end of October, but on certain weekends, visiting the TrailCenter is even more worth your while. We kick off the season on May 10 and 11: various partners present their test bikes, the Erzgebirge Bike Academy with Marco Hösel set up their “Trailzauber”(trail magic) camp and on the trails or when getting a refreshment, you get to meet other avid bikers.
A further highlight is the TrailTrophy on July 12 and 13: this enduro rallye consists of timed races on selected trail sections, which are then added up at the end. In spite of its racing character, it’s still quite easy-going. Information: www.trailtrophy.eu.
The month of October, when the “Indian summer” moves into the Ore Mountains, marks the beginning of the end for the biking season. As such, the TrailCenter puts on its best dress from October 3 through 5 with many activities, all about biking, including pretzels, bratwurst and wheat beer.
