Start of the bike season in Engelberg

Engelberg has established itself as a popular bike destination in recent years. To kick off this year's season, the ÖKK Bike Revolution is taking place in the Central Swiss village for the second time.

Engelberg makes bikers' hearts beat faster, whether on the «Jochpass-Trail», the «Hells-Bells» or the «Trudy-Trail»: if you want to let it rip on the trail, this is the place for you.

A day tour on the Surenen Pass awaits enduro fans, while the Four Lakes Bike Tour or the bike tour along the Alpkäse Trail are perfect for those who prefer a more relaxed pace. The reopening of the Trail Arena also brings with it a long trail and a new playground where you can practise your riding technique at different levels.

To kick off the bike year, the world's top mountain bikers as well as bike enthusiasts, leisure (e-)bikers, families and kids are set to gather. ÖKK Bike Revolution in Engelberg will host the event for the second time, from 31 May to June 2024.

On Sunday at the cross-country race, the world's best will battle it out for the day's victory and the overall victory of the ÖKK Bike Revolution.

Spectators can follow the race from the well-developed race track. Within the fun category, amateur bikers can compete on the same spectacular course. Young talents can also put their skills to the test in the Kids category in various age groups.

On both Saturday and Sunday, there will be «Gusto Rides» with culinary stops - for those who prefer a more leisurely pace. On Saturday, there will also be celebrity company in the form of local sports stars Fabio Scherer (car racing driver and Le Mans winner) and Fabian Bösch (freestyle skier and X-Game champion).

There will be a skills course for the little ones, workshops on riding technique, care & repairs and a large bike expo with the trends for the coming season on the event site. Further information on registration can be found on the website of Bike Revolution of Engelberg.
