The days are getting longer again, tree branches are showing their first flashes of green and you can ride your bike again without gloves and a winter jacket – now is the time to go exploring! To help you start right away, we’ve put together a Collection of eight extensive day Tours for you from the Leipzig Bay to the densely wooded slopes of the Saale Valley in the Thuringian Forest. With a distance of more than 60 kilometres (37 miles) and some metres of climbing (especially in the Saale Valley), these Tours are great for an e-bike adventure. Of course, they’re also a perfect choice to put your new touring bike or gear through its paces.

There are eight routes to choose from: through the Leipzig Riverside Forest with its small rivers and canals, around the Leipziger Neuseenland lakeland, into the Ore Mountains on river cycle paths and up and down through the Saale Valley in the Thuringian Forest. The extra power of an e-bike really comes into its own in the Thuringian Forest, so you’ll manage the climbs with ease.

Are you eager to get going, but still don’t have the right bike or gear? Take a look at our Giant stores in Leipzig and Rudolstadt. Here, you can find the right two-wheeled companion, panniers and tools for your adventures.

    The Schwarzatal is one of the many hidden gems in Thuringia and is definitely worth an extended bike tour. On mainly well-paved paths you follow the course of the river up to the Lichtetalsperre, where you can let your gaze wander over the beautiful landscape and imagine that there is an entire village

    On this day tour you will cycle part of the really enchanting Saale cycle path, which has long been a permanent fixture on the must-have-cycled list for long-distance cyclists. You will also be whisked away to the beautiful hinterland of Thuringia, where the Orlaradweg will reveal a less touristy, but

    This exit is something for tight calves - even with an electric drive. Over 1,000 meters of altitude await you on this almost 60-kilometer round tour through the southern Ore Mountains - and most of it in one go. However, the effort is definitely worth it: the view from Auersberg is phenomenal and a

    Your e-bike is challenged on this tour: A lively up and down, which adds up to a total of 900 meters in altitude over 61 kilometers, ensures boredom. The beautiful nature of the Mulde Valley in the Ore Mountains also contributes to this.

    

    You start in Bad Schlema at the train station and almost immediately

    Water rats, beach enthusiasts and sun worshipers will find everything their heart desires on this extended tour of the Leipziger Neuseenland. The Cospuden, Zwenkauer and Störmthaler See are relatively close together and are waiting to be ridden by you. Also on site: cafes, kiosks and various water sports

    The alluvial forest is one of the most beautiful local recreation areas in Leipzig and, of course, it is very easy to cycle here. This tour takes you over a small loop to the Connewitz lock, but then in a north-westerly direction to the Raßnitzer See. You are on the road a total of 71 kilometers - with

    This exit is hard to beat in terms of versatility. Not only exciting architecture such as the Bergkirche in Beucha await you, but also the impressive Westbruch with its sensational view, the idyllic Grillensee and the historic Gut Mölkau.

    

    It all starts at our GIANT store in Leipzig. On the way there you

    This tour is something for swimmers: three lakes in the north of Leipzig invite you to refresh yourself. The tour itself has no particular difficulties or altitude - only the sometimes quite fresh headwind can be a bit difficult. In summer temperatures, however, it is also a relief.
