A white pick-up covered in stickers with a mountain bike (at least one) on the back speeds in our direction and stops.
A guy wearing a cap, beard, glasses and a chequered shirt (this is how bikers look like) gets out of the car and greets us with a cheery ”Grias Enk“. This is Johannes, our bike guide. He is our man when it comes to 2 wheels – he solves any problem with the bike or biker in no time.
He is an outdoor sportsman through and through. He is a fan of fast, technical and challenging sports – in summer as well as in winter. Mountain biking has always been a compensating sport after the ice hockey matches he accomplished as a pro. Now it is the other way around, hockey sport is a hobby and a counterbalance to biking.
Johannes is a South Tyrolean native and has been exploring the Bregenz Forest since he was 8 years old. He founded the Bregenz Forest Bike School, has created an extensive and continuously growing tour programme and has brought a breath of fresh air to the mountain bike sport in the Bregenz Forest with his ideas.
Karl Heinz, Tobi and Michaela are the members of our Bike Guide Dream Team, and you must meet them on your next bike trip at the Hotel Adler.
