#CleanYourLocalForest around the Harz Mountains & win with Five Ten

Mountain Biking Collection by adidas Five Ten

Imagine you're riding on a flowly trail that leads along natural paths through a wonderfully dense forest. You suddenly see a plastic bottle that someone has obviously lost. So, you pick it up, of course. After all, the bottle has no business being on the trail and is an obstacle too.

What do you think about going one step further and setting even more of a good example? You could show other forest visitors that you care just as much about untouched nature as a mountain biker. Why not pack a rubbish bag in your rucksack for your Tour and collect a bit of rubbish along the route, at car parks or on the roadside. You don’t have to organise a big clean-up of course. It’s enough if everyone just takes a few minutes to help our forests to look a lot nicer!

And there’s more great news: for your good deed, you won’t only get positive karma. You have the chance to win one of four exclusive adidas Five Ten packages with great sustainable products for your mountain bike Tours. The package is available twice for women and twice for men. Each includes a pair of Five Ten Freerider Primeblue mountain bike shoes, a pair of Five Ten BOTB bike shorts and a Five Ten Bike TrailX T-shirt. There are also 500 Five Ten 25% discount codes up for grabs!

By the way, the entire outfit comes from adidas Five Ten's Primeblue product line. They are produced using high-performance recycled materials, some of which are made from Parley Ocean Plastic. This special project aims to rid beaches and coasts around the world of plastic waste by using it to produce new materials. This is an important step towards a plastic-free future for our oceans.

Joining the #CleanYourLocalForest initiative is easy:
1. follow adidas Five Ten on komoot and take us with you on your clean up, no matter if you walk or ride. You can either be inspired by the highlights in this Collection or ride your own favourite route.
2. show that you care about the environment and record your clean up Tour with komoot and add #CleanYourLocalForest to the title of the Tour.
3. tag adidas Five Ten as a participant in your Tour to share it with us and the community. Creative Tours with photos of your clean up have the chance to win one of 500 Five Ten 25% off codes! (You will be contacted by email)
4. repeat!
5. are you also interested in winning one of the four Five Ten packages? Then register for the prize draw by clicking on the "Enter Now" button.

So what are you waiting for? Let's go! #CleanYourLocalForest and make your personal contribution to a more beautiful forest!

    Adam und Eva

    Mountain Biking Highlight

    At the northern arch of the Ith on the Coppenbrügger side there are two particularly striking rocks called "Adam and Eve". When viewed from a certain angle, the larger rock looks like a pregnant woman. But you have to have a lot of imagination 😁.

    Grenzweg

    Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)

    I like these Panzerwege, even if they are not technically demanding and their monotonous rumble at most demands nerves. But the idea of why they were once created and what we can do here today is great. The great landscape around it does the rest.

    Köthener Hütte

    Mountain Biking Highlight

    Definitely the most beautiful hut in the Harz! Looks like a church and after the steep ascent invites you to take a contemplative break with the best view. ;)

    Das Hellental

    Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)

    One of the most beautiful valleys in the Solling, which is still characterized today by wide meadows.

    Grundbach Trail

    Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)

    Wooow. I didn't think there was such a beautiful trail in the valley. Along the stream, sometimes stony, sometimes rooty, sometimes flowing, sometimes wet, sometimes dry, sometimes technical, sometimes relaxed ... The only thing that is there permanently is the beautiful nature. Really awesome and definitely to be recommended!

    Poppenberg Aussichtsturm

    Mountain Biking Highlight

    There are many steps to climb, but it's worth it. High up you have a magnificent view over the Harz National Park. Also stamp office of the HWN.

    Bärentaltrail

    Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)

    The Bärental Trail begins shortly after the Großer Knollen. It consists mainly of forest floor, gravel and some larger stones. There is a fork at the entrance. Take the hiking trail on the right ... it's MUCH more fun! The trail is very flowing and initially characterized by small climbs. Then you really pick up speed and can really shred down. After about halfway there is a short narrow passage, so please do not fall into the abyss! ;) After about 3/4 of the way you are VERY fast on the way, you will find a large tree trunk in the middle of the way that can be bypassed. But please be careful, I almost rushed into it. Great trail, is usually very fast, is a lot of fun, but always to be enjoyed with caution! ;)

    In the new bike park in the Harz you drive high up: St. Andreasberg is the highest town in the Harz. With the tow lift you arrive relaxed at the start of various bike routes. You can choose from five routes. From flowing single trails to challenges on the downhill route, everything is included. The park is open every day of the summer from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. You can get all information about the park here: harzinfo.de/interessanter-ort-im-harz/detail/msb-x-trail-1702.html.

    Romantisches Siebertal

    Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)

    The only and last large Harz valley, which is not blocked by a dam with reservoir. Until the 1980s, there were corresponding plans, which were then discontinued. Maybe that's one of the reasons why the valley is so untouched today that it's hard to believe. From then leads a narrow asphalt road along the Sieber. If you drive from north to south, it is only downhill for many kilometers without pedaling. Pure enjoyment!

    Singletrail

    Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)

    Awesome trail! You should take care of roots. On the one hand, it goes steeply downhill!

    Trail im Oderwald

    Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)

    Beautiful trail that is good to ride in both directions. If you drive it north, you can take a few small ramps / jumps with you.

    Flowiger Single-Trail im Elm

    Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)

    A nice, long and fast trail with lots of curves in a painted setting. I drive him to and from work in both directions every day.

    Granetalsperre

    Mountain Biking Highlight

    Around the Granestausee leads a very nice bike path, which always offers beautiful viewpoints on the lake. He also does not have too many vertical meters and should be easy to handle, even for beginners.

    Bike-Park Schulenberg

    Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)

    Instead of "Downhill" one says "Downchill" and that shows already the cool attitude of the Bikepark operator. Here it is sporty but totally familiar.

    In the bike park, you can find the perfect downhill trail from the flowing singletrack to the race-ready downhill course and then treat yourself to a rustic refreshment in the relaxed finish area while you talk shop with like-minded people a bit. Before you are then transported by lift back towards the start.

    Every summer, the "Down [c] hill Masters" take place here. Information about the park can be found here: bikepark-schulenberg.de

    Ostufer Eckertalsperre

    Mountain Biking Highlight

    A region steeped in history (two parts of Germany) with a wonderful view of the dam and the Brocken. The driveway from the Eckertalsperre to the Brocken over the old Panzerstraße is very steep, but still really recommended. Have fun! 🤙

    Brocken

    Mountain Biking Highlight

    The highest peak in the Harz Mountains above the tree line. Certainly not the most exciting ascent with the MTB, but a must, simply because it is there. ;-)

    Achtermannshöhe (Harz)

    Mountain Biking Highlight

    The Achtermannshöhe is the starting point for several different technical trails. The trail to the north is fun, the one to the south is challenging. But before you “throw yourself down” the trails, you can also climb the last few meters to the summit and enjoy the view. The bare, rocky summit offers a good all-round view. At the foot of the final ascent there is also a refuge and the stamp point 12 / Achtermannshöhe of the Harzer hiking pin.

    Here, the history of the division of Germany comes to life again: All sorts of original objects from the bunker to the monitoring tower illustrate how the border was secured here in the past. Here you will certainly discover a lot of exciting things!

    Teufelsmauerkamm-Trail (Süd)

    Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)
