Rhön-Radmarathon Tour B, 180 km, 09.06.2019
At Pentecost cyclists ride in Bimbach …. of course the Rhön Radmarathon! Not just any cyclingmarathon, but the CYCLINGMARATHON.
With the Rhön Radmarathon BASIC (Tour B) we want to address marathon beginners. We have come up with a route that offers the same beautiful views of the Rhön, but requires considerably less kilometers and altitude meters from the rider.
In 2019, the new designed course will lead 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. New focus area is the southern Rhön.
In addition to some well-known climbs, such as the Milseburg, there are many new climbs, such as the climb to the Schwarze Moor (black moor) from Seiferts and the Schwedenwall from Bischofsheim. Followed by the beautiful descent to Gersfeld and the idyllic Gichenbachtal. The route leads from the last checkpoint along the rivers Jossa and Lüder almost entirely downhill to Bimbach.
For the anniversary of the Rhön Radmarathon, 2330 starting places (instead of 2000) are available for the four cycling marathon routes. Please note the changed starting times. The 30 years Rhön Radmarathon jersey can be purchased during the registration process.
