Right on Frankfurt's doorstep, the Taunus, is the region's most beautiful #MakeYourMark. On our tour, you have to climb 3 peaks with your bike at almost 1000 meters altitude and enjoy the view from there.In the morning you arrive in Oberursel Bf and first warm up while sightseeing through Oberursel and Bad Homburg, two pretty towns.Then you leave the urban environment & dive into the wonderland of the forest on the first ascent. The first stop there is the historic Roman fort in Saalburg, where the Limes ran back then.Then the ascent to the first of the 3 peaks begins: the Herzberg, with a beautiful observation tower and refreshment stops.But that's not all: the grand final of the ascent takes you up to the Feldberg in addition to wonderful views of Frankfurt.Since all good things come in threes, you are drawn to the Altkönig - here you have also made number 3.Finally, easy down the mountain & return to Frankfurt by S-Bahn or bike.

In the end it turned out to be an easy excursion departing from Riva del Garda, you go through small villages of the upper Garda, the beautiful village of Tenno with its castle. Initial climbs among the olive trees of Garda on very steep and cemented ramps (25%), paths that are always easy to walk, stretches on asphalt. The final descent offers a lot of speed in the woods (path of the Pinza), the bottom is stable with many leaves, it ends at the ancient bastion overlooking Riva del Garda. The descent continues very steep on an artificial cobblestone ground and we find ourselves in the center of Riva. A path for everyone without problems, just pay attention to the brakes in some very steep sections and to the sun which in this period drops very quickly on some sides and the temperature becomes rigid.
