      Between the starting point and Galibier (2,642 m) there is a difference in altitude of over 2,000 meters. With that the task is already outlined. The short intermediate descent from the Col du Télégraphe (1,566 m) to Valloire is even better because it has to be climbed again on the way back. The gradients are only a little over ten percent, but the last few kilometers are not flat.The landscape above the tree line is enormous, the lower part, from the Col du Télégraphe, offers greater downhill fun on smoother asphalt.Overall popular with motor tourism: Avoid summer weekends or start early.Refreshments: The alpine dairy "La Poutre" (phone 0033 / (0) 479/590875), located near the Galibier pass road (above Valloire at around 1,750 m), is just the thing in terms of landscape and cuisine. There are also various restaurants in Valloire.

      A delightful cul-de-sac in the large asphalt network in the area. Only a small village and a ski station that is deserted in summer are on the way. The highest point is not a draughty pass, but a secluded, small lake with picnic benches, the Lac de Pramol (1,731 m). The short detour there is spiced up by the steepest meters of the pleasantly even, approximately eight percent incline through quiet forest.The road splits behind Montricher. Both variants meet again at the top. If you drive the round clockwise, you have the smoother descent. No reliable place to stop for refreshments, just a shop in Montricher.

      Attractive: the ascent over the tight turns of the “Lacets de Montvernier” in combination with the expanded Col de la Madeleine (1,993 m). The Col du Chaussy (1,531 m) between the two valleys is marked gravel on older maps, but smoothly paved. Those who only want to climb the Madeleine should - like the tour professionals 2020 - choose the quieter ascent via Montgellafrey, because motorcyclists also appreciate the lively main route.Refreshments: Various cafes in the Longchamp ski resort, but the location definitely speaks in favor of the “La Banquise” restaurant on the Madeleine - and its terrace reaches the 2,000-meter mark. Reservation: Telephone 0033 / (0) 967/271060.

      While the ascent to the Col du Glandon (1,924 m) only shines above the tree line with large serpentines, the descent from the Col de la Croix de Fer (2,065 m) is extremely rapid. The tunnels on the exit from Croix de Fer are illuminated.An attractive extension (or a separate day tour with access via the D 110 from St-Jean): junction via the Col du Mollard. To do this, leave the descent from Croix de Fer at an altitude of 1,240 meters, which adds up to 400 meters in altitude on the smallest roads. Refreshment There is a rustic restaurant on the Croix de Fer, the Chalet du Col (open June to the end of September); or in In Saint-Sorlin.

      Two great vantage points are waiting for the first twelve kilometers: right after the start on the Kirschfels, then on the 610 meter high Weißenberg from the 35 meter high Luitpold Tower. From there it goes over sometimes wild, sometimes dreamy forest and forest paths through gently hilly terrain. After several meters of altitude, at the end of the day we tackle the demanding ascent to the 673 meter high Kalmit, the highest mountain in the Palatinate Forest. After that, there are still technically demanding trails riddled with roots down to Neustadt an der Weinstrasse.

      Fast gravel descents, steep climbs, fluffy trails: hardly anything that doesn't get under the wheels on this day. On the varied route over the hardly populated forest hills, we collect almost 1,500 meters of altitude over the day - with luggage and without suspension, this is a challenge in the field. From the “Am Herrentisch” trekking site, you always head roughly south-west through the expanses of the Palatinate Forest. Demanding trails and paths lead to the Almersberg, the highest point of the day; from there you have a magnificent view over the peaks of the Palatinate.

      There are just twelve kilometers as the crow flies between start and finish, but the route makes so many loops that at the end of the day there are almost 60 kilometers on the clock. The fun starts right away with a fluffy single trail. Tip: have breakfast, buy provisions in Weidenthal; At 4.9 km on the B 39 1.5 kilometers to the village, turn there and back to the track. Then it goes over empty swept forest paths through the mixed beech forest of the Palatinate Perm to the "Pälzer Weltachs" (a processed sandstone on the 459 meter high Kleine Roßrück) - at times brisk, occasionally rampant, but almost always soft and flowing. The region is sparsely populated, you hardly ever meet hikers and other bikers.

      Short, crisp - and a perfect start if you don't start until noon. Immediately after Neustadt, it only goes uphill at first, directly towards a green wall. And then out of civilization. The highest and first peak of the day is the Eckkopf after twelve kilometers, with a beautiful trail passage downhill. In general: A mix of trails and forest roads leads over the wooded humps deeper and deeper into the Palatinate Forest Nature Park, varied and most of the time under the canopy to the Frankenstein trekking site.

      In the Eastern Alps, passes over the main ridge are rare. The Großglockner High Alpine Road and the Stallersattel rarely appear in the common Transalp profiles. Then we garnish the whole thing with relatively unknown, but all the more beautiful Dolomite passes.Passes: Hochschwarzeck (1,040 m) - Hirschbichl (1,183 m) - Grossglockner High Alpine Road (2,504 m) - Stallersattel (2,052 m) - Furkel Pass (1,789 m - Passo di Valparola (2,192 m) - Passo di Giau (2,233 m) - Forc Staulanza (1,773 m) - Passo Duran (1,601 m - Forcella Franche (990 m) - Monte Grappa (1,736 m, road)
