Dear cycling friends,After a lot of work, the "Schonacher Trail Ride District" is finally here. This is an MTB loop of about 13 km with built-in trails around Schonach. 2 years ago we presented our project Mayor Jörg Frey from Schonach. He was excited, and did everything possible to implement the idea. Approval then came from the local council.As a team leader of the Kona Factory MTB Team, I am in close contact with the Canadian MTB manufacturer Kona. "No other company in the world is an outfitter and supporter of as many bike parks as Kona, so I could win them for our project in Schonach. Also Kenda Tires, one of the biggest tire manufacturers and title sponsor of the MTB Enduro One seriessupports the Trail Ride District. We have also invested in the facility and together with Kenda Tires and Kona Bikes are exclusive partners of the "Schonacher Trail Ride District". Through Kona Bikes I met Rainer Unterberger from the Bergkraft company in Austria.He has built Europe's largest bike park in Leogang and is responsible for the Red Bull UCI World Cup tracks. We then have a team with the best trail builders in Europeincluding Nico Bößl responsible for the spectacular Red Bull District Ride with over 80,000 spectators.I then brought the crew to Schonach and together with Mayor Jörg Frey began the planning and implementation. In no time then the "Schonacher Trail Ride District" was born. For this we have designed a logo and the entrance arches made of wood for the respective trail entrances. Here was the company S + K serviceGbR Axel Schätzle and Dennis Kaltenbach from Schönwald and Timor Helmstädter, chainsaw artist from Villingen.The trails were deliberately omitted on an extreme level of difficulty to allow beginners driving pleasure, but also experts do not come too short.For the plant we have created together with our partners an international marketing concept, so we plan, for example.Manufacturers and corporate events as well as driving technique seminars.The "Schonacher Trail Ride District" has already received the first seal of approval and is included in the list of "Kona Approved Trail Bike Parks" and Kenda Tires will make a movie with professional drivers about the facility ".The starting board with information is located at the trail house on the Wittenbach. From there it goes directly to the "Bike Ranch Trail" near the Langenwald ski jump, then past the Bike Ranch in the village Schonach. Continue on the Vogeleck to Holzeck, there is the "Kenda Trail". Then the route leads via Gummelen to Wilhelmshöhe to the "Kona Trail" and via the Wolfsbauernhof and Herrenkreuz back to the Ski Stadium. The trails are now released, the information boards on the wooden arches of the entrances are to be observed. The complete loop is signposted with the logo designed for it.The team Bike Ranch and the community Schonach as well as mayor Jörg Frey wish all mountain bikers a lot of fun.
