Are you one of the lucky ones who got a new bike before they were sold out all over Germany? It's just a shame that the weather hasn't been at its best so far. You finally want to take out your new gravel or trekking bike and May barely makes it into double-digit temperatures! We know the problem – but we have the solution. Open the curtains, look out the window and what can you see? That's right, summer is waiting outside at last! This is the perfect moment to move your workout outside, discover the blossoming nature and get your tired legs back into shape.
We've come up with an incentive to make it even easier for you. With our #rausundlos Outdoor Initiative, we've got a little challenge: ride your bike at least 125 kilometres (78 mi) in a month. Once you've got a taste for it you won’t want to get off the saddle. Your bike will get you out into nature in no time, even in big cities and at a speed that gives you enough time to take in your surroundings.
To help you with the challenge, we've picked out some lovely bike routes with each being exactly 42 kilometres (26 mi) long. Just pick your three favourite Tours and plan them for the current or next calendar month – you’ll tick off the challenge in no time!
So, do you accept our challenge? Simply download the TK app, start TK-Fit (the fitness programme in the TK app) and take part in the challenge. If you complete it, you can earn up to 1,000 points for the TK bonus programme. You can either redeem those points for future treatments that you normally have to pay for or treat yourself to our rewards.
Just one more thing: if you go on a Tour with komoot, follow us, tag us as a participant after your ride and write #rausundlos in the title – we’d love to see who takes part in the challenge here. If you prefer to share your adventures on Instagram or Facebook, you can tag us by using #rausundlos. We'll meet you in the great outdoors!

The starting point is the Bremervörde train station, which is connected to Bremerhaven and Buxtehude with the RB33. You cross the Oste and cycle on a wonderfully tarred forest path, where a small refuge lures you to a first picnic.We continue through the idyllic little villages and fields of the Stader Geest. You cycle past the Barger Heide, where Heidschnucken look after the landscape. Get off your bike to greet the woolly animals.
On the Hamburg-Rügen cycle path you cycle between Schleswig-Holstein and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania through a flat land rich in lakes with picturesque, expansive meadows, fields and forests.The tour begins at Ratzeburg Lake, where you can jump into the water right at the beginning. It is best to equip yourself with some provisions for a picnic in the countryside, because the rural area you are driving through today is not lavishly stocked with supermarkets.
This tour takes you dead straight along the Kiel Canal, the over 100 year old waterway that extends from the mouth of the Elbe to the Kiel Baltic Sea. You start at Obereiderhafen in Rendsburg, which shines in new splendor after a renovation. From here you follow the Eider and arrive at the Schirnauer See, where the Eider and Kiel Canal meet.
