As part of the project, the Bad Ischl Cycling Club has developed this Salzkammergut cycle route, which connects all 23 Capital of Culture municipalities. We will cycle this route together on 21 June, starting in Bad Mitterndorf and finishing in Bad Ischl. There will also be shorter sections from selected municipalities for those who want to take a more leisurely approach. The sporty ride of approx. 200km will be led by Valentin Zeller, national coach at the LRV, former professional cyclist and Race Across America finisher.

The Salzkammergut Peace Ride takes place as part of the Fête de la Musique. In this way, we are combining sport and culture and creating a new cycle route together that connects the Capital of Culture region and remains sustainable. You can be part of this event and set an example for peace and social cohesion

The Salzkammergut Peace Ride is not a race, but a joint ride! You can also ride parts of the route on your own initiative, information will follow. In this case, no registration is required.

The Salzkammergut Peace Ride route will be sustainable and permanently accessible via GPS, and can even be booked as a multi-day holiday cycling package via Salzkammergut Touristik in Bad Ischl.

The Peace Ride is not a competition, but instead an encounter and exchange on an international level. The International Peace Ride was the most highly regarded amateur cycling event behind the Iron Curtain. The European Capital of Culture Chemnitz 2025 brings the peace ride back to life as a bicycle culture event.
