Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)

If you hear Sauerland and think of pensioners and Dutchmen, you can learn a lot today. Tonight you associate the following things with this beautiful spot of earth: fun singletrack trails, crisp climbs, and a stunningly beautiful nature with stunning views of the surrounding hills.It starts right away. Starting from the market square in Brilon, we will navigate you directly to the "Trailground Brilon", a newly created trail network especially for bikers, on which you can really let it rip. The trails are well maintained and signposted and you can take some of them with you today to tune in directly.The tide of beautiful impressions will not break for the rest of the day. You can walk it on flowy trails along rippling streams, power up on various climbs and then enjoy the breathtaking scenery that spreads out in front of you. Particularly impressive are the hills around Willingen. Here you cross a kind of high heather, an open area with low heath herbs and other rare plants that feel up here. These remnants of the glacial tundra attract many tourists in the summer. You experience the landscape almost in the Vor-Flowen on your bike.A few climbs today have it all. Not that they are too steep. But they are really technical and blocked by rocks. A great challenge if you are technically savvy. Otherwise you push a few meters. The fun of this tour will not be affected.Shortly before the goal of the tour, another highlight awaits you: the Ruhrquelle. Here ripples the Ruhr as streamlets to itself - 219.3 kilometers further it flows as a torrent into the Rhine and has on the way a metropolitan region, the Ruhr area, coined.After about 50 kilometers you made Stage 1 of our short Sauerland Cross. Two more beautiful tours are waiting for you. Alternatively - if the time is only enough for one tour - you can travel by public transport from the station Winterberg back to the starting point to Brilon (the bus connection is in this case much faster than the train ride).
