Mission Mountainbike – fast eine Weihnachtsgeschichte

By: Olivia Schoch December 20, 2017
   

Wir finden Mountainbiken natürlich toll! Doch was treibt uns bei Allegra an, nicht nur unsere Freizeit im Sattel zu verbringen, sondern das Mountainbiken gar zu unserem «täglich Brot» zu machen? Weshalb haben wir uns entschieden morgens aufzustehen um Mountainbike-Destinationen zu beraten, uns auf politischer Ebene für das Mountainbiken zu engagieren, Mountainbike-Trails zu bauen und so die Entwicklung von Mountainbike-Tourismusdestinationen zu unterstützen? Darco Cazin, Gründer von Allegra, erzählt uns seine persönliche Geschichte.

Das BikeHotel der nächsten Generation

By: Olivia Schoch December 01, 2017

Wohl niemand hätte sich 1999 vorstellen können, dass ein Luxushotel wie das Cresta Palace in Celerina einen Umbau extra für Bikegäste vollstrecken würde. Damals galt schon nur die Idee, Mountainbiker als Zielgruppe für ein Hotel im abgeschiedenen Münstertal zu gewinnen, als eher exotisch. Die Zeiten haben sich auch im Mountainbike-Tourismus geändert.

By: Darco Cazin October 01, 2016

Mountain bikes need to be maintained and washed. But the times where an empty garage and a simple garden hose where enough are gone.

WORK 10 - A SWISS STANDARD FOR BIKE HOTELS

By: Darco Cazin September 13, 2016

Back in the day (I think it was the old millenium) our company didn‘t start with developing mountain bike destinations but with offering guided biking tours for my mom‘s hotel. It quickly evolved into a booked out bike hotel and a unique hub for mountain bike riders from all over the world.

When we started working in Livigno in 2003, we had already developed offers together with visionary hotel owner Fabio Giacomelli. But we soon realized that we needed more hotels to become bike hotels if we
wanted to get mountain biking to fl
y for the whole destination. After having visited around 40 hotels we were finally able to announce the first bike hotel cooperation of the destination - with 10 member hotels.

Hardware Solutions For Bike Hotels

By: Darco Cazin April 05, 2016

At Allegra Tourismus we have a long history transforming hotels of all kinds and sizes into bike hotels. In Switzerland we're currently supporting the rollout of the national bike hotel certification by hotelleriesuisse. As we have been introducing the new criteria amongst existing and future bike hotels there has always been one question that we were not able to answer fully: "What hardware solutions do you recommend for a bike hotel?"
