What is more suitable for a challenge like the Black Forest Cross as a destination than the birthplace of a mountain bike Olympic champion? Sabine Spitz took gold in Beijing in 2008, and since then a whole region has been celebrating her victory. You can celebrate another notable achievement today. Because today you master the eighth and last stage of the Black Forest Cross. 450 kilometers and 16,000 vertical meters are behind you. And so a lot of sweat but also great trails, breathtaking views and pure nature. You can be really proud of yourself!The last stage you can fully enjoy again. Today there are no long climbs. You ride in a flowing up and down at about 1,000 meters altitude and can always enjoy great views. At the end it goes downhill again. A long descent takes you down to Bad Säckingen, the spa town on the Rhine, right on the border with Switzerland. From here you can easily return by train to the starting point of the stage trip to Pforzheim and look back in peace on about one week's most ingenious bike adventure.Tip:From Bad Säckingen leads a historic wooden bridge over the Rhine in the Swiss community of stone. At 203.7 meters, it is the longest covered wooden bridge in Europe and is a listed building. Go over once and already at the end of the tour you have experienced a significant piece of cultural heritage.
