Bike, MTB and Co. – Roel Paulissens & Hannes Pallhuber’s Bike Shop
Bike! Bike! Bike! Dream holiday on 2 wheels
Whether (semi-)professional or amateur: mountain bike fans are in good hands with us in Sankt Walburg. As the hosts themselves are enthusiastic bikers, they know exactly what is needed for a cycling holiday in Anterselva.
Firmly in the saddle Roel Paulissen, In Anterselva by choice
A native of Belgium, the host Roel Paulissen was moved to come to South Tyrol* many years ago. Roel was a professional mountain biker for a long time, he took part four times in the Olympic Games and took part and even won twice the World championship in the MTB marathon. Although Roel has actually hung his race bike up he always likes to take part in one or the other MTB marathon. Especially the classics like that Plan de Corones King or the Dolomiti Superbike, are still a must for old MTB cracks!
*On the one hand, of course, love was “to blame”. The beautiful Anterselva mountain landscape with its numerous opportunities for bikers has done its part.
Everything for bikes We are Bike Friendly
As a biker and those who want to become one, you have come to the right place in Sankt Walburg. In addition to tour tips from the MTB world champion and a lockable bike depot there is also a charging station for e-bikes. We even have a specialised and highly professional bike shop in our premises. Of course you can wash your bike and wait on site. And if you want to wash your cycling clothing, that is of course also possible. The landscape with its countless trails and cycle paths, will make your bike holiday perfect.
The bike shop Small but world class
An Eldorado for bike fans. Roel and Hannes operate the RH Racing Bike Shop directly on the ground floor of the Sankt Walburg. Here they provide professional advice and adjustment, but also repairs and spare parts. And of course sometimes there is time for a little chat (on the subject of bikes, of course).
