Rhön-Radmarathon Tour C, 218km, 09.06.2019


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.

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 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. One of the three most difficult long climbs of the Rhön is the ascent from Ginolfs to the Hochrhön. After the ascent to the Schwedenwall from Bischofsheim, follow the beautiful descent to Gersfeld and the idyllic Gichenbachtal. As compensation, the route leads from the last checkpoint along the rivers Jossa and Lüder almost entirely downhill to Bimbach.

The course is a little bit more difficult than in the last years, although the kilometers and elevation gain have not changed significantly.

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.
