Rhön-Radmarathon Tour E³, 301 km, 31.05.2020
At Pentecost cyclists ride in Bimbach …. of course the Rhön-Radmarathon! Not just any cyclingmarathon, but the CYCLINGMARATHON.
The Rhön-Radmarathon EXTREM^3 (Tour E³) was our challenge for you to the 30th anniversary of the Rhön-Radmarathon in 2019. There will be the possibility to accomblish the EXTREM^3 also in 2020, because of the large number of feedback. We offer you probably the hardest event with 300 km in Germany.
n The route was completely redesigned in 2019 and leads clockwise over the "Open Distances" of the Hessian, Thuringian and Bavarian Rhön and into the Vogelsberg. Our premise during the planning was to lead the route over mainly low-traffic and attractive roads and to reduce the dangerous locations to a minimum. Since 2019, the focus has been on the southern Rhön and the "Schwarzen Berge" (black mountains).
For 2020, we have adjusted some parts of the route based on insights from the previous year.
In addition to some well-known climbs, such as the Milseburg and the Ellenbogen, there are many new climbs, such as the Weidberg and the ascent to the Hochrhön from Hausen, the favourite ascent to the Hochrhön of our chief route planner. Two of the three most difficult long climbs of the Rhön, the ascent from Ginolfs to the Hochrhön and the Totnansberg, are in the route. The climb to the Kreuzberg is the third one, but because the route does not lead until the Kloster (monastery), you miss the hardest part of this climb. At kilometre 200 the Große Nickus awaits you, which is in no way inferior to the famous Ebersburg.
As a special challenge the Tur E³ does NOT lead from Buchenrod along the rivers Jossa and Lüder almost entirely downhill to Bimbach, but to the highest elevation of the Vogelsberg, the Hoherodskopf and Taufstein.
The Rhön-Radmarathon EXTREM^3 is a part of the award "Bimbach 400" and together with Tour 3 or Tour 4 on Saturday you accomplish the necessary 400 km. HERE you can book the routes for both days in one step. 2000 starting places are available for the four Rhön-Radmarathon routes. Please note the changed starting times.
