The varied offer for bicyclists in Lower Austria seems to copy the diversity of the country. Over the last years, a great deal of wealth has been invested in building bicycle trails for different target groups. There are, for example, 14 cycling routes great for children. These  run on easy terrain, across safe nature and around stops that are fun for the whole family.

Pleasure seekers may try so called radial trips. From one place you can go for more trips into the area. You can choose a one-day trip or a multiple-day trip. A bag with basic things will be just enough to take with. Trips you may make are really diverse - for example, in Retz you can try wine-related bicycling, and in Baden the cultural treasures of the Vienna Woods are the main theme of the cycle trails.

In recent years, an extensive network of bike rentals has been built. Bicycles powered by electricity are available for rent in the regions of Bucklige Welt, Weinviertel, around Danube, the Cider trail or some MTB trail in the Ybstaller Alps. A practically designed network of trails with charging stations, repair shops and facilities selling food and drinks are great for a ride on flatland or in the hills.
