As of last weekend, the RideAble Project is now open for everybody.
More than 100 riders came together in Zell am Ziller in the Zillertal Arena, defying the wet weather of the preceding days to enjoy a day on the brand new trails.
Interest levels were high on the opening day and riders were spotted as early as 7.30 am on Saturday waiting for the gates to open.
At around 9am the entire group, including MTB-Freeride.TV pro rider Mario Lenzen set off for the inaugural ride on the track.
The rain that had been forecast arrived at around lunchtime, but it had no detrimental affect on the mood of the riders and with an abundance of high fives and smiles there were plenty of positive comments at the trail exit.
Among those riding were the trailbuilders from Velosolutions, who travelled from Switzerland after spending a substantial amount of time on the trails earlier in the season.
Even the landlord and mayor of Gerlosberg came out three times to shred the trail with his sons.
The weather on Sunday was considerably improved, but the trail still needs time to dry, as the opening riders left their mark, but it was another successful day with an appearance from manager Franz Kranebitter, who tested the track with his two sons.
