Road Cycling Highlight
The principle of the Stoppomat is simple: At the beginning of a time measurement, you pull out a card in the starting house, write your name on it and stamp it. Then you make sure that you pedal towards the goal as fast as you can. The top is stamped again, then you put the card in the box provided. It is emptied once a week and the times are entered in a database. In this way, you can manually compete with other drivers in a personable way - without GPS.
Here in Oppenau a wonderfully demanding mountain classification begins: 655 meters in altitude spread over 7.2 kilometers and a maximum gradient of 18 percent - then you will know what you have achieved!

Distance: 7.2 km

Route: The route runs on the L92 up to the refuge. Immediately after the last houses of Oppenau it goes uphill with 9%. In the first piece of wood between the curves short pieces with 14% are overcome. Thereafter, the road meanders moderately at 8% to the so-called Sandsteige, which after a short flat piece with up to 18% is the biggest challenge. Then it goes a little more pleasant with an average of 12% on. After approx. 1 km the destination is reached at the paraglider take-off place Roßbühl.
