planned a mountain bike ride.

  • The first stage of my Trans Odenwald tour begins at the train station in Bensheim, where you can rest and head off into the Odenwald without the stress of traffic jams and parking. The route begins at a leisurely pace along the railway line: to Heppenheim it is quasi flat and therefore perfectly suitable

  • It looks like a really nice tour. Where are you staying overnight?

  • Are there trails to ride on the tour? Don't get me wrong 🙂 I don't necessarily need the tickle 🙈🙈🤣

    Can you recommend places to stay during the days?
