    Some easy trails, som rocky trails with alot of roots. Within 80km You can have all:
    In the North: the Fichtelgebirge and the Steinwald: Die Lettenbrueder - Freeride und Downhill im Fichtelgebirge
    East: some trails near the czech border
    South/West: good trail is the Erzweg Der Erzweg - Der Erzweg

    Due to the terrain variations I would prefer a fully with 120mm to 150mm travel.

    is there any here that rides near the Nuremberg area? I am new to germany and would really like it if there was anyone or a group that rides in this area until I get familiar with the area.

    thanks

    Pnaples,
    We have a bunch of riders in Hohenfels. Good trail riding on post as well. We do go to nurenburg as a group often. Trails are right behind the zoo. We also make it to the bike parks....of course when the weather turns. Around march time frame we start riding.

    is in Vilseck still the OTV-Cup race? I was there a few years ago. There were 150 participants. It was great!

    I'm starting my research as to rides in the same area next year when I visit family near Gera. Let me know how the scene is. Thanks.
