Bike Touring Highlight
Franken Tourismus planned a bike ride.
May 12, 2020
The textile tour comes up with many moderate climbs on longer sections of the route. As a nice day tour, it is ideal for recreational cyclists and families.Before you start pedaling, you should definitely take a look at the Upper Franconian Textile Museum in your starting place in Helmbrechts. There you will find the longest scarf in the world - and you can even weave it yourself and make it longer!The first seven kilometers lead you along dirt roads and through forest sections towards Schauenstein, where you meet the Selbitz, whose river course you cross a couple of times on the tour. As soon as you leave the river and turn into the forest, your calves get work. The route climbs to Marlesreuth and rewards you with a rapid descent back to Selbitz.Since the tour screws up a creative eight, you will pass Schauenstein a second time. Incidentally, in the imposing castle of the same name there is the Upper Franconian Fire Brigade Museum, which is not only interesting for kids.Again and again you roll through hilly landscape, past the old weaver's house, which rounds off the textile tour. You arrive at the Geigersmühle almost at the end of the day on your bike. You have now absolutely earned a hearty meal.
