Why stray into the distance when good things are so close? With this in mind, we at FOCUS Bikes would like to introduce our home trails east of Stuttgart: the Swabian Alb. Here we regularly romp around on weekends or for after-work rounds and also in the off-season, when there is (still) snow in the Alps. We — Mario, Martin and Ben — invite you to our five favorite trails on the Swabian Alb.

You will probably know the name Albstadt from the UCI XC World Series: Every year a race of the Crosscountry World Championship takes place here. It probably won't come as a surprise to you that you will be able to get your money's worth the rest of the year.

But the rest of the Swabian Alb also has a lot to offer: From demanding enduro rounds to cross-country dreams on the hardtail, we have put together our favourite tours for you here.

The Swabian Alb and all our starting points are easily accessible by car or train from Stuttgart, and we recommend that you take enough food and drink with you on all tours, as the Alb is not as well served as the large mountains in the south. Even a bit of tools can't hurt to avoid getting stranded involuntarily.

    Martin - Brand Manager:

    "Would I do the lap every week? I do not think so. Could I drive the lap faster? Definitely next time. I think that could describe the little love-hate relationship very well. If you don't always need trail adrenaline, but you want crisp climbs and the most beautiful corners of

    Martin - Brand Manager:

    “Three of the most beautiful mountains in the Swabian Jura in one tour. I recommend Mössingen as the starting point. From there to Farrenberg and via Öschingen to Rossberg. Enjoy the cake and a view over the Swabian Alb before one of the most beautiful trails in the Alb leads down

    Mario - Design Engineer:

    “I can only say one thing about this tour: trails, trails, trails. With relatively moderate altitudes to be mastered, you can always let your bike run properly and play with nature.

    

    There are also small highlights such as the cave at Kahlenstein, the view over Geislingen at the

    Ben - Head of Engineering:

    “Beautiful (E-) MTB round on the Swabian Alb with a view of the Glemser reservoir and the Achalm castle. Especially the single trail passage on the edge of the Swabian Alb towards the upper reservoir is absolute fun and flow.

    

    If you want to extend the round, you can start this

    Ben - Head of Engineering:

    “If you can't get enough of the region around Glems, you can still let off steam on this tour after the Glemsduro Classic. The altitude difference is manageable at first glance, but at second you will soon notice that the constant up and down as soon as you are on the ridge
