Hans Peter Obwaller (HPO) has developed a bit of a cult following for his ride submissions to FulGaz.

The former pro-cyclist has a reputation for scenic Austrian rides, killer climbs and a solid mix of gravel and road surfaces.

This collection will not disappoint as it captures some of the stunning beauty of the region combining blue skies, crunchy gravel and quiet roads. 

For us, these rides are an instant addition to the “favourites” list.

If you love these rides, you’ll love the others from HPO. Search “Obwaller” in the app to see of his contributions to FulGaz.

Tauernradweg from Maria Alm

Starting in Maria Alm and going westwards on the cycle path. This is a fairly flat ride with only some very short and not steep hills. This route is perfect for a virtual recovery ride – or after a tough uphill session.

Biberg

A very challenging climb from Saalfelden up the Biberg. The first part is flat on a cycle path to get your legs warmed up. The first climb features a steep spectacular uphill race every summer in July, you’ll start on tarmac and later in the ride you’ll enjoy some gravel with gradients of 20% and more… But you’re always rewarded with spectacular views to the “Steineres Meer” mountains. Finally you will reach “Berli´s Hütte and can enjoy a fast downhill with awesome views.

Scheiblbergrunde Loop

This loop is about 25k and 580m of climbing. Gravel as well as tarmac. This is a very popular ride in area with as it features very scenic views and a lot of nature. Downhill will be much easier on FulGaz than it was in real life on a gravel bike with slick tyres!
