    Spent today in Bike Park Boppard close to Koblenz. There is only one trail and two dirt lines but the trail has some really nice flow to it. Lots of kickers, drops, and some North shore mixed together. Its free if you dont mind pushing your bike back up the trail (takes about 30 minutes)...if not, the lift costs like 4.50 per run or 20 for a tageskarte. Definitely worth checking out if your in the area.
    Wait until Spring Bandini

    I used to live just across the border from GK while stationed at Brunssum. The Dutch side has several good routes. I think the Brunssumheide is about 8 minutes from the back gate of GK airbase. There is also typical german forestroad type riding all around the base. the Aachenwald area around where the dutch, german, and belgian borders meet is also interesting. see my post in the riding in the netherlands thread above for more info.

    Landstuhl

    There are some good singletrack trails around Landstuhl. They are labeled as "walking" trails but I usually don't see any people when I ride so it's not a problem. If anyone wants to ride on em then feel free to pm me.

    Has anyone ever ridden any good singletrack down near the bavarian alps? I always hear people say that they have sweet trails down there but I am not sure if that means singletrack or fireroads. I still don't understand the Germans love for fireroads...

    Yeah I just did a 40k race in my town (though I wasn't really racing) and it was more like a cyclocross race. Nogt much single track. On the tricky single track I had to pass a lot of people but on the hill I was gettin stomped. Most of the riders were afraind to go fast in the tech. sections. I have a huge map of the alps. I'll try and upload it one of these days.

    Sounds great! Maybe we could meet up at Rodalben too. I have only ridden half of the trail so far and I am itching to see how the rest of it is.

    Great info about the trails down south. As soon as I can get some time off from work I plan to head down there for about a week. I want to see the sites and do as much riding as possible. Me and some buddies have been thinking about going to Les Gets bikepark in France. It is geared towards the dh/fr guys but they have xc trails too.

    Wasgau Marathon

    which is a "fun" marathon takes place the 13th of October. Pretty fun, but the courses are
    way off for distance, which makes it a bit more fun. They are longer than posted by far. Ed

This summer ill be making the 5 hour drive to Sallbach and Leogang in Austria, im stoked. Oh almost forgot, theres Burg Frankenstein by Darmstadt. Its got some nice FR trails.

    Do you have directions to Todtnau? I live near Stuttgart and am looking for good places to ride.

    If you guys decide to ride Wasgau is pretty fun course with good feed stops. They seem to always be backed up with people eating way too much. Hope to see you guys there, look for the one of the only 29ers and a guy with a beard and that will likely be me. Ed

    click on "Anfahrt"
    Todtnau is in the southern black forest, far away from anything by german standards. It's worth the drive, but do it in the summer.

    Bad Wildbad is somewhat closer than Todtnau.

    The track(s) is even gnarlier - steep, seriously rocky, but with less elevation gain. Super fun but bring all the body armor you have. I live in Oregon now and the main track at wildbad is still the gnarliest track I've ever ridden by a really long shot.

    There are a bunch of people from Stuttgart riding there all season (lift - or rather: train-assisted off season riding is possible year round), you can find them in the stuttgart local board on mtb-news.de:

    I think I found the right forum to post in...

    There are a few of us who live on Vogelweh MFH side of base that will be riding out of the Getleswoog parking lot (past Hoenecken) each weekend from now until Jan; a couple of us have 125 day vacation.

    For those familiar with the RACC Thursday rides, we are going to start in the parking lot as usual. As a matter of fact one of the guys is picking his new bike up today and we will be riding from the Getleswoog parking lot at 1400.

    If you are interested give me (Rick) a call on my cell 01515-327-7383 or e-mil bcane98@gmail.com

    Looking forward to the Wasgau ride as well...

    Erlangen=Sweet single track. But mums the word, you gotta know how to get them, put up with plenty of pavement and dirt road to get them, but once you find them.....

    It will still be up in the air for some months more, it appears. Too many factors coalescing right now.

    Can I move in with you? I could rub in how much tire clearance I have in my rear tri while you rub in being 25% lighter.
