Middle-Northern Black Forest Cycle Route

Or to give the route its German title Naturpark Radweg Schwarzwald Mitte Nord is a 260 km (160 mile) cycle route with a total climb of 1800 metre (5850 feet) designed to be cycled by normal relatively unfit cyclists in four to six days. In addition those not equipped with muscles like Eddy Merckxx can hire pedelec e-bikes that give a boost on the hills. These can be hired along this circular cycle route and there are battery charging stations in cafés, restaurants and pubs giving you the chance to charge your own batteries while your bike's batteries are being topped up. There is more information on  (in German, but don't forget Google Translator) and you can contact the Black Forest tourist authority:
