Mysterious forests, scenic heights and mountain ranges, which must not shy away from famous alpine passes. Road cycling in the Black Forest is something truly special. Nonetheless, this low mountain range located in the south-west of Baden-Würtemmberg is primarily known for its famous ham, the cuckoo clocks or the creamy Schwarzwälder cake. Yet, the beauty of the fresh mixed woodlands with their steep mountainside, surrounded by a mosaic of fields, forest fur and almost daily sunshine, are just a few reasons why many professional cyclists are living and training here in south-west of Germany. The Black Forest offers all the ingredients a race bike paradise needs. These eight tours help you to explore this diverse area on two wheels.

    First an easy drive past the beautiful Leuterbach to Windkapf. After the turnoff left you pass Schwarzenbach to a real treat: The Rausteine ​​south of Schramberg. At kilometer 26 follows a very crisp ramp! A rather leisurely way back via Mariazell, Dunningen and Heiligenbronn on a bike path back to Schramberg.Recommendation: Ride harder during the week, as this route is especially popular on motorcycles at weekends.

    From Freiburg main station a short, fine ride on the local mountain starts: the Schauinsland. Already behind the city boundary starts the climb, which demands the fullest use of your knees right from the start with a constant climb. Arrived at the trail parking lot Geiersnest, which is about 10 km as the crow flies from Freiburg, one already has a beautiful view of the Schauinsland in the north and the Belchen in the south.
