If you want to cycle the route, there is the GPX track of the Main Cycle Path here:mainradweg.com/service/gps-datenThen I hope that you don't have as much headwind as I did on Saturday. On Friday and Sunday I was almost always 30+ on the clock. That was out of the question on Saturday. And the search and the break in the screwdriver workshop in Aschaffenburg certainly didn't push the cut up either :-)Driving time: Friday 7pm to Sunday 12pm. From 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. I scratched nicely. So no nightrides ...

Another free weekend! Then out on the bike. This time we went around the corner to the Eifel. And if the Eifel Touristik recommends the Eifel-Höhen-Route…. who would I be to contradict?We couldn't leave until Saturday afternoon, that is, it was an overnighter. On Saturday the weather still had a lot to offer: rain, cold and stormy headwinds nicely distributed over 145km and 2000 meters of altitude.Sunday the weather changed and the needle rose to 28 degrees. Only the storm remained. In the afternoon we went flat again - but happy - back home.All together a great tour. With the great weather it was very crowded at the Rur and the reservoir. The climbs are within reasonable limits (for the Eifel).The route is actually suitable for all bikes. Even a road bike should go (there are only a few gravel roads).If you want to try it yourself, you can find more information and the GPX track here:

It's still unusually cold for this time of year - but the apple trees are already beginning to bloom. Perfect time to test out the route.And the name is program. Although I come from the Rhineland, I didn't realize how many apple orchards there are here. Whole slopes were full. A bit like in the old country :-)If you want to test the route yourself….
