July 6, 2020
Your adventure finally begins! The first stage leads you out of the big city and immerses you in the idyllic nature of Middle Franconia. And right from the start it shows what it has to offer. You drive along the Pegnitz along the most beautiful nature trails that Nuremberg has to offer. First you drive through urban green areas, later on narrow trails that give you flowing driving pleasure. Past the Nuremberg Zoo you leave the city behind.Shortly thereafter follows an endless single trail on which you can no longer get out of the flow. Over more than eleven kilometers you iron here over small paths, roots and stones. Only crossing the motorway briefly reminds you that you are in Germany and not somewhere in the middle of nowhere. Take a deep breath - then the next trail is waiting for you. Along a small stream, your driving skills are in demand here and there. Time for a refreshment? After almost half of your day's stage you will pass Diepersdorf. There are various supermarkets, butchers and bakers and therefore all kinds of opportunities to replenish your stores.And it goes on! Past the Moritzberg, the second part of the day begins with a short but crisp descent with a lot of fun and lots of driving fun. Then you finally have time to roll through the forest in a relaxed manner. Your way winds past the Nonnenberg on various forest roads and through small typical Middle Franconian villages. In the further course it gets a little steeper. You are now collecting the last meters of altitude of the day - and that is a few again. But where it goes uphill, it also goes downhill at some point. In addition, you ride on really nice trails again, which makes even the climbs pleasant.The Arzberg tower finally shows you that you have reached the top. Up to today's stage goal it is now only downhill. So look forward to flowing trail descents, always keeping an eye on the daily goal. Before you take care of your night's sleep, the Happurger Baggersee offers the ideal opportunity to cool off. On the way to your night quarters you can then quickly get your dinner in Hohenstadt and then make yourself really comfortable at the campsite "Pegnitz-Camping" right on the river.
