Cool!! Actually too blatant for me. It was clear to me beforehand that I could make this judgment at the end of the day, but you can give it a try. I actually arrived in one piece and made it all the way! I'm a little proud :-) However, some sections were much more torture than enjoyment, a few hundred meters less would have been more appropriate for my abilities.
All in all, a fantastic area and great, varied sections of the route! (In itself mega, but the sum is tough)
From time to time I wished for a suspension MTB to protect my hands and shoulders, but everything was easy for me to do with the gravel bike and 40mm slippers.
Many thanks to Andrea for scouting! It was really nice to get to know the Odenwald :-)
ps .: The altitude meters from the Wahoo were pretty wrong because it auto-paused on all steep climbs and also after pressing 'continue' said it didn't have to count km and hm. And as you know, there were a few of these steep ramps ... That's why I uploaded the gps track without elevation gain and let komoot do the math, which probably doesn't quite work. well, route and time are right. the pure driving time was 12: 25h (apparently komoot cannot determine it)

Super nice tour! Thanks to the scout 🙌 The weather was perfect and the birds chirped especially nice for me 😁Fantastic gravel passages on which it rolls really well and a lot of forest, just good. Except for two somewhat tricky trails and the one sliding passage behind Balingen, I had no problems.The Danube crossing was unfortunately not possible for me, so I also drove the loop around the outside.
Oh yes, and those who can set it up are well advised to take the tour on weekdays. When the weather is good, the Danube Cycle Path is of course really busy on the weekend ...

Awesome! Very nice, varied tour.The tour was mostly very good to drive, the surface proportions are balanced. Fortunately, it was dry everywhere, so 40mm tires went really well.
I found the section between Tonbach and Schönmünzach to be the most beautiful (approx. Km 113 to 153 from the start in Stuttgart). Then came a pretty dry spell for me, there was a lot and steep up and down between Schönmünzach and Zwerenberg, and all of this on gravel and forest floor. Then I was really looking forward to asphalt: DMy conclusion: highly recommended, thanks for the nice tour 🤩ps .: at km 78 the track goes through a farm, at least that looked very private. Since I drove around outside (no detour, just 30m further and then turn right)pps: I saw that there is the time 14: 57h again. My exact time is 14:57:11 ;-)
