The multi-faceted bicycle adventure along the Main begins in Creussen. This pretty medieval town can be easily reached by train. Up to the actual Main source, or rather the origin of the Red Main, it is almost nine kilometers steadily uphill. But after you've completed this climb, that's almost the same as on the whole tour.On small roads you drive parallel to the Main to Bayreuth. The charming and lively student city is ideal for a longer break. How about a picnic in the courtyard garden?You will follow the river and its countless meanders until you reach your destination Kulmbach. Just before you arrive, cross the confluence of the Red and White Main. Here the Main officially starts at kilometer zero.Alternative route for the first leg: If you do not want to start at the Red but at the White Main, we have also prepared this stage for you: komoot.de/tour/103854913
