At Pentecost cyclists ride in Bimbach …. of course the Rhön-Radmarathon! Not just any cyclingmarathon, but the CYCLINGMARATHON.
The Rhön Cycling Marathon CLASSIC (Tour C) is our classic and we recommend it for the cyclists among you, for whom the extreme variant is too far.
The route was completely redesigned in 2019 and leads clockwise over the "Open Distances" of the Hessian, Thuringian and Bavarian Rhön. 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. 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. After the ascent to the Schwedenwall from Bischofsheim, follow the beautiful descent to Gersfeld and the idyllic Gichenbachtal.
After the checkpoint in Oberzell, waits the Große Nickus, which is in no way inferior to the famous Ebersburg.As compensation, the route leads from the last checkpoint only gently upwards to Buchenrod and afterwards along the rivers Jossa and Lüder almost entirely downhill to Bimbach.
The route is easier than in the previous year, because the kilometers and the elevation gain are reduced.
2000 starting places are available for the four Rhön-Radmarathon routes. Please note the changed starting times.
