Bicycle handlebars come in a wide variety of shapes and variations. Each handlebar brings its own advantages. But with which handlebars is participation in the Wachau Bike Days 2022 allowed? Here we have summarized the most important information for you!
Permitted: Participation in the Wachau Bike Days is permitted with racing handlebars with classic bend as well as with mountain bike and touring handlebars. So-called barends are allowed at the Wachauer Radtage.
Forbidden: Participation with Triathlon handlebar attachments, trailers or other bar extensions is prohibited. This prohibition also affects handlebars which are connected in one unit with the Triathlon attachment.
On these photos our race director Bernhard Rassinger shows you which bars are allowed and which are forbidden:
Safety has top priority at the Wachau Bike Days. To prevent breakage, handlebars should be replaced at regular intervals. Both braking and accelerating place maximum loads on the handlebars. A mix of materials, such as a combination of steel stems and aluminum handlebars, should be avoided. If the handlebars are damaged, they should be replaced immediately.
We wish you a safe ride and lots of fun at the Wachau Bike Days 2022!
