Road-biking is a great way to experience the amazing outdoors and great views of the Black Forest area. I’m your local guide to a great ride. No need to look at a map for directions. I know the best, safest and most scenic routes for all levels of fitness. We will leave the city on small roads and cycle paths to make our way into the beautiful countryside and the hills. We will pass through Waldkirch and start the gentle and long ascent into the beautiful Simonswälder valley. We will then turn into the lonely, narrow and adventurous Wildgutach gorge, riding along the small river, with almost no cars. Experience the easy flow of this idyllic road, one of my favorites. When we reach the Hexenloch (witchhole), hidden deep inside the valley, we have two great options for going up to the main road again. If you still feel fit we can climb a secret little road with some great views, before flying down small forest roads back into the Dreisamtal and Freiburg. There will be enough time to stop for a rest, enjoy the views and take pictures. After the ride I will show you my favorite biergarten, café and cycling gear shop.
Born and raised in northern Germany I’ve been an avid runner and cyclist from early on. Tired of the bad weather and traffic in Hamburg I moved to a small village near Freiburg 15 years ago. Since then, I've been cycling and exploring the Black Forest, Kaiserstuhl and Alsace. I’ve also been doing multi-day cycling tours in Europe with friends for almost 20 years. I love cycling and I’m on my road bike a couple of times a week. When not on the bike, I work as a freelance software engineer, practice my cooking, woodworking and guitar skills and try to raise our two teenage girls.
