Start riding in Stuttgart — road biking on our home turf

Road Cycling Collection by FOCUS Bikes

Is Stuttgart a paradise for road bikes? You bet! Once you get out of the busy city center, the streets are yours to take. 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 at stations, 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 is beautiful. In this Collection, we present 8 circular rides around Stuttgart that will get every biker excited. 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 100-kilometer (62-mile) loop, 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:
    “For me, the perfect tour for a lunch break. Short, nice and crisp. The goal: to stay under an hour. That means: It is poured correctly, since there are usually four or five of us in the group. Those who hope for slow rolling in will be instructed immediately. One hour of power means one hour of power. But don't worry, the tour is nice enough to take it easy. ”
    What do we do if our legs tingle shortly before the shop closes? Right, we get on the saddle and leave our office. Passing the cars that torture themselves through the after-hours traffic, it is steadily slightly uphill through Österfeld. We roam the red deer park, but make a sweep through the Krummbachtal - a real racing bike insider tip.At the highest point of the tour, Solitude Castle awaits us. Short breather with a wonderful view. Then it goes through the red deer park. A great route through nature, past the park lakes. Then we did it again.We are sure that you will also enjoy the round. If you want to follow them, the best thing to do is take the light rail to Herderplatz and get started. Please note: Taking your bike on the tram is free, but not possible between 4.30pm and 6pm.

    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. ”

    Alex - Product Manager:
    "Admit it: you want to know it too. 350 kilometers in one day, paired with 2,700 vertical meters. There are people who can do it and maybe you will soon be one of them. Afterwards everything hurts, but thanks to intensive training you mastered this really tough tour. Of course you can divide the round into several daily stages, there are enough overnight accommodations on the way.
    If you plan to do this tour in one day, you have to get up early. Shortly before sunrise, accompanied by the twittering of birds, you set off in Stuttgart. You leave the basin towards Neckar and follow the river. You have reached the highest point of the tour in Münsingen. The rest of the day is only slightly wavy with no long slopes.You make a detour to the Danube, cross the border to Bavaria and drive around Ulm. The way to Schwäbisch Gmünd - here you have already reached kilometer 300 - leads you partly on excellent roads through beautiful forests. You follow the Rems to Waiblingen and overcome a last hill before you triumphantly enter Stuttgart via Bad Cannstatt. ”
