Biking and relaxed cycling tours in the Ötztal valley
We provide top-serviced rental bikes and e-bikes free of charge for our guests. In addition, you can rent a standard bike (e-bike, downhill and special bikes for an extra charge) at the Hummel Bike Centre (right next to the hotel) or at Sport Rimland Intersport Glanzer (in the centre of Längenfeld) free of charge one time with the Ötztal Inside Summer Card. The sports shops are also happy to kit you out with bike clothing and equipment.
In the Hotel Rita, you will find a separate bike room where you can safely park your valuable bikes and carry out small repairs. In the bike room, you will also find an assembly stand and tools to immediately remedy any small problems or malfunctions. It’s the perfect offer for carefree cycling and mountain biking holidays in the Ötztal valley.
Sometimes it has to go fast. That's why we offer to wash your bike clothes overnight (for a fee) or hang them up to let them dry.

Tour advice & tips
Leisurely bike tours
Just out front of the Hotel Rita, 40 kilometres of flat cycle paths spread out along the idyllic valley floor of Längenfeld. Until as far as Huben or Au, the cycle path runs mostly along the refreshingly cool Ötztaler Ache river. There’s also no shortage of refreshment stops (for food and drink) along the way. Tip: Ötztal’s local history and open-air museum in the Lehn district is recommended for a longer stopover.
Tour highlights with the mountain bike
About 900 km of mountain bike fun await mountain bikers in the Ötztal valley. The routes include stretches of asphalt in the valley as well as forest and gravel paths up to the narrow climbs and trails. There are numerous Alpine pastures and huts around Längenfeld that you can hike to, including the Amberger Hütte mountains hut, where you can enjoy hearty dishes as a reward for your efforts.
The Bike Republic Sölden
Just 15 minutes by car from the Hotel Rita, the Bike Republic extends from the centre of Sölden to high-Alpine regions. This extraordinary bike park combines well-shaped flow trails, natural trails and classic mountain-biking tours. Modern cable cars will transport you up to the trail entrances in no time. With a length of up to 16.3 km and a depth of 1,300 metres, the Long Lines trails are a tough test of endurance.
Pump tracks in Sölden
In Sölden, you can "pump" out a few rounds and practice your technique for the trails on two pump tracks. The "Rolling” wave course opposite the Gaislachkogl valley station is the largest pump track in Tirol and offers effective, yet fun training. On the beginner-friendly "Sunny" pump track at the Hotel Sunny, young bikers can practice their skills.
Bike transport by bus and train
For longer tours, we recommend a combination including the bus, e.g. for the return journey to Längenfeld and the Hotel Rita. Thanks to the Ötztal Inside Summer Card, bicycles can be transported free of charge in the public buses. In the cable cars, you need a separate ticket for the bike, which will float uphill with the gondola or on special holding devices at the lift.
