The very demanding tour starts at the Kurt Schuhmacherbrücke in Ludwigshafen and leads into the deepest Odenwald up to Bavaria. On this tour, 4 federal states (Rhineland Palatinate, Baden Württemberg, Hesse, Bavaria) are passed through. On the first 60km you can curl up, before it goes from Eberbach in the first climb. A total of 14 km of the route on federal highway, but often a wide edge strip is present, so that the motorists are not disabled. In addition, there are 5km of a downhill to Erbach, where you roll with 50 km / h with ease. The rest leads on low-traffic, partly car-free routes.
At Schloss Erbach, it is worth taking a short break before entering the last 5 climbs.
During the entire tour, according to my record, you get to 2600 vertical meters. All climbs that you manage, move in the category 3 or 4 and are therefore quite pleasant. The last 3 climbs can also be left out well (680 HM). Instead of climbing up to Raubach, you drive down the valley in the direction of Hirschhorn and come out on a known track again.

Along the Neckar, head towards Ladenburg. It follows a detour in the Odenwald on low-traffic roads and short beautiful climbs. In Ulfenbachtal it goes down again to Hirschhorn. Here you can decide: easy route downhill with traffic along the Neckars along to Neckargemünd or once again a quiet but dragging climb (300 meters in 4 km) direction Moosbrunn and then on hilly route to Neckargemünd.

The goal is to escape the summer heat. A route on shady roads in combination with sights and the possibility to refill his bottles with drinking water. In Niederschlettenbach (after 75km) and in Schaidt (after 100km) there are public wells with drinking water quality.
However, the first 50 km to Albersweiler are mostly in the sun.

Several rest stops, e.g. on the Totenkopfhütte, Johanniskreuz or Schwarzsohl. If the route is too long or too many meters in altitude, simply skip the detour towards Johanniskreuz and drive straight at Helmbach towards Elmstein (then there are only 118 km and 1270 vertical meters).
