Is Stuttgart a paradise for road bikes? You bet! Once you get out of the busy city centre, the streets are yours for the taking. We — Alex, Björn, Martin and Moritz — will show you the most beautiful routes around our headquarters in Stuttgart. While cars sit in traffic and trains are delayed, you can speed around on your two wheels and escape the hustle and bustle of the big city.
You don’t have to go far to find great rides because, as you know, close to home can also be beautiful. In this Collection, we present eight circular rides around Stuttgart that will get you itching to hit the road. Each route starts right in front of our office. Two of the short loops head to Schloss Solitude, perfect for an active lunch break or post-work ride. There’s also a 62-mile loop (100-km), a trip to Hohenneuffen Castle, and, if you really want to know how strong your legs are, you can take on the "Hart aber Herzlich" route.

Martin - Brand Manager:
"Get fit, but don't have time for many kilometers? No problem with FOCUS! Just appear once or twice a week for power hour and the rest will take care of itself in the next few months.If we didn't drive all the time at the stop, you could run the risk of even liking the lap. Bärensee, Solitude & Birkenkopf. Nice places to stay. But at least one in the group usually sets the priority differently - and the rest follows. ”

Alex - Product Manager:
“Ideal for spring you are often looking for tours that are fun and do not involve mountains that are too steep or high. In the north of Stuttgart there are wonderful valleys along small rivers that are relatively lightly traveled.As soon as you leave Stuttgart, you drive from one valley to the next. You mainly drive on side roads that are super paved, but are hardly used by cars. The routes through the forest behind Ochsenbach are particularly great. Here you will find the only crisp climbs on the tour and then whiz down again with relish. ”
Moritz - Brand Director:
“With the“ Stuttgart 100s ”, the most important thing is to get out of the boiler quickly. Here we go straight: into the forest and steeply uphill. The best thing to do is to meet at the tea house, briefly enjoy the view over Stuttgart and then come the 15% rise to the television tower.Then it goes beautifully through the vineyards towards Esslingen and along the Neckar. The highlight of the tour is certainly the idyllic Nassach Valley. Here the Belgian roundabout begins to turn. The valley starts beautifully curvy with a slight slope and ends with somewhat steeper climbs at the end.The descent towards Schorndorf can get really cold in winter - put on a rain jacket ?! Finally, it goes back slightly to Stuttgart through the Remstal. ”
Martin - Brand Manager:
“Probably the fastest way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Within a few minutes on the bike you are in the Siebenmühlental. Small mills, no cars and around seven kilometers of the finest bike path that lead you towards Schönbuch.Here it goes up and down on beautiful and quiet streets. In Tübingen you can take a short coffee break before heading back to the Schönbuch via the climb to Pfrondorf.The way back takes a different route. We leave the Siebenmühlental on the right and try to mobilize the last reserves on the bike express route from Böblingen to Vaihingen. From Vaihingen it rolls comfortably back to Stuttgart. ”
Moritz - Brand Director:
"It was a mega ride! Get out of the cauldron via Botnang and along the bear lakes towards Magstadt. The highlight of the tour is the Würmtal. Beautiful departure.Once a year it is completely closed to cars and we caught the day by accident! Leave a few more grains. Then the slightly hilly and minimally ascending Nagold Valley Cycle Path winds through the valley. Either you enjoy it or you press the TT pedal.Either way, I would take a short break in Calw and enjoy a cake. Then there is another decent climb before you wind your way back to Stuttgart on more or less beautiful streets. In the end there is another highlight with the newly paved tank road. After that, all the grains are used up and you can roll back fully into the kettle. ”
Bjorn - designer:
"Here comes a sporty version for a Sunday trip. While some get comfortable in the car to take a nice lap through the landscape, we climb into the saddle. The scent of freshly mown meadows, the chirping of birds and the light wind on your face while the first warm spring sun rays tickle your skin ... wonderful!From Stuttgart, after a first climb - perfect for warming up - you go to the Siebenmühlental. On the old railway line you roll comfortably between forest and meadow. From Nürtingen it is finally uphill and the path gets steeper and steeper. The last piece past the Hohenneuffen Castle is really crisp. On small roads it goes towards Neckar. The next climb awaits you in the Nassach Valley. You keep going up and down again and again via Bad Cannstatt back to Stuttgart. ”
