Taunus Bikepacking is a mixed surface, self-supported bikepacking adventure taking in all of the Taunus region north of Frankfurt, Germany. The challenging 1,000 km route takes riders over unbeaten paths along numerous sights of a remote region in the heart of Germany.

The seventh edition starts on June 16, 2024.

It might be just a journey to discover the region, a chance to leave your comfort zone, an adventure, a challenge, a good opportunity. Let’s find out. Each on their own and yet never really alone. GPS tracking by Follow My Challenge.

This ride leads to the borders of Taunus as well as deep into its heart, including many ups and downs. The elevation profile is challenging, with about 17 meters of elevation per kilometer. There are no long flat bits. Many of the climbs are relatively short but steep and the surface keeps on changing. After this ride you’ll know the Taunus better than most locals.

The track runs mainly away from roads on quiet farm and forest lanes and a few trails. You’ll find shelter huts, hotels, campsites, fountains as well as resupply options along the route.

Taunus Bikepacking is an idea by Jesko von Werthern.
