Route map for new cycle path, Austria
29 September 2021
Pindar Creative and award-winning information designer, Atelier Christian Mariacher, have collaborated on a route map for a new cycle path in Tyrol, Austria.
To date, four and a half million euros have been invested in the Stubai Cycle Path which, when complete, will be around 35 kilometres long and extend from Falbeson to Mutters where it will connect with a cycle path to Innsbruck.
Surrounded by 80 glaciers and 109 three-thousand-meter peaks, the Stubai Valley offers year-round activities which include hiking, skiing and cycling. The three-meter wide cycle path has a gentle height gain of 600m along its length, making it ideal for novice cyclists and those cycling with children, enabling cyclists to take in the stunning 360º views. Christian Mariacher is working with a local architect, Thomas Mathoy, to design stop-off points that will feature the map alongside cycle parking, resting places and information on the local area.
Promoting cycling as part of a contemporary approach to Alpine tourism is not only a fun thing to do. It also feels like a little step into the right direction given the environmental challenges we face today. The cooperation with Pindar Creative was and still is inspiring and fruitful.”
Jill Tinsley, Commercial Director at Pindar Creative adds:
This was an exciting project to work on and felt like a really collaborative piece of work, with Pindar creating the base mapping and Christian adding the typography.”
