These seven circular routes show you Hesse's diversity by combining creativity, industrial heartlands, delicious culinary stops, and expanses of secluded nature. Your soul will be fed in a different way depending on the route you take. For example, riding to Mount Feldberg via Frankfurt and the Taunus Hills combines urban environments with green landscapes. With a mixture of tarmac and forest trails, this ride is perfect for cross and gravel bikes. On the other hand, the 100-kilometre (62 mi) route in Kasselaska in northern Hesse was designed for ambitious road cyclists and includes 1,200 metres (3,940 ft) of climbing.
The distances of each of the seven stages in this Collection range from 50 to 100 kilometres (31 - 62 mi) with 500 to 1,200 metres (1,640 - 3,940 ft) of elevation gain.
All routes have been scouted and ridden by the Offenbach Gelato Riding Club and include recommendations and insider stories on exciting culinary stops, creative spaces and sights.
