The Palatinate is a special area for road biking. Not many people live in this forest, which can make the roads pleasantly quiet for cyclists who converge on the woods. You’ll pass by dry pines, red sandstone boulders and mossy beech trees. You will follow tiny, wild creeks that take you up to breathtaking viewpoints of the Rhine Plains and at the end of your Tour— after racing down these narrow forest roads—you will emerge into a sea of vineyards for which the area is so famous. These Tours help you explore this diverse area on two wheels. Almost all of them start and end at a train station and are perfect for a weekend getaway with your bike.
