Mit einem riesigen Netz an Wald- und Forstwegen, einer ausgedehnten Hügellandschaft und zahlreichen Weinbergen bietet Stuttgart perfekte Bedingungen für dich und dein Gravelbike.

In dieser Collection nehme ich dich mit auf zwölf Gravel-Touren durch die schönen Stuttgarter Wälder und die beeindruckenden Naturparks im Stuttgarter Umland. Die kürzeren Routen eignen sich hervorragend als Feierabendrunden, grandiose Aussichten in unmittelbarer Stadtnähe lassen dich schnell deinen Arbeitsstress vergessen. Auch die längeren Routen durch den wunderschönen Schönbuch oder den Schwäbisch-Fränkischen Wald werden dich verzaubern.

Aber Achtung, durch die Kessellage wirst du auf jeder Tour einige Höhenmeter sammeln. Eine leichte Übersetzung wird dir helfen, jeden Berg zu erklimmen. Jede Tour besteht aus einem Mix an breiten Schotterpisten und schmalen Waldwegen, aber auch asphaltierte Streckenabschnitte sind immer mit dabei.

Alle Touren starten und enden an S- oder U-Bahnstationen des Stuttgarter VVS-Netzes. Die Fahrradmitnahme in der S-Bahn ist immer möglich und kostet nur an Wochentagen zwischen 6 und 9 Uhr ein Kinderticket extra. In der U-Bahn fährt dein Rad immer kostenfrei mit, allerdings ist hier die Fahrradmitnahme Montag bis Freitag während der Rushhour zwischen 6 und 8:30 Uhr sowie 16 und 18:30 Uhr nicht erlaubt.

Egal, ob dich das Gravel-Virus schon erwischt hat oder ob du als Gravel-Neuling unterwegs bist, in dieser Collection ist für jeden etwas dabei. Stadtnahe Routen können immer auch an jeder S- oder U-Bahnstation abgekürzt werden. Und alle, die auf besonders lange Gravel-Abenteuer stehen, können einfach zwei Touren miteinander kombinieren. Auf jeden Fall wirst du – auch wenn du schon lange in Stuttgart wohnst – staunen, wie schön die Schwabenmetropole ist und was es noch alles zu entdecken gibt.
