general information

“Grüß Gott” to our new Enduro Tour over the rough Swabian Alb and the Danubian Mountains to Lake Constance and back! Following the slogan “Why go to the distance, see the good is so close”, we want to expand our offer a little downwards from 2018 on. Our new dainty and appetizer is designed to make the world of roadbookTouren as easy as possible! No long journey to the destination area, no cross tire conversion and no tricky navigation tasks. For this 2-day tour, we have been able to win the devil of a fellow and long-term editor Werner “Mini” Koch, who knows the region and routes as a passionate MTB and enduro rider like his vest pocket and the role of being a tourguide. Thus, the route can be adapted individually or according to the weather conditions and no one is overstrained. The tour is less oriented on the wild Enduro-mucky pup – we want to draw attention with this tour, how nice it is in our proximity and what a genial (gravel-) road network here is still legal to drive!
Total Distance of the Trip: 400 Km

ROUTE

The route leads across narrow, small asphalt roads or gravel roads across the Swabian Alb towards the Danube Valley. Even in wet weather, the route is easy to ride with normal road enduro tires and large adventure bikes. If the ground is too much softened or wet, we avoid the critical passages. 


DRIVING SKILLS

Die Schotterstrecken dieser Tour sind so ausgesucht, dass sie von Enduristen mit schweren Maschinen gefahren werden können. Offroad-Erfahrung in Form eines Lehrgangs oder absolvierter Schotter-Kilometer ist sicher hilfreich, jedoch nicht unbedingt erforderlich. Nicht zu unterschätzen sind allerdings die wirklich kleinen Straßen, wo man sich den ganzen Tag von Kurve zu Kurve schwingt. Also, solides Grundfahrkönnen, gute Kurventechnik und letztendlich auch Durchhaltevermögen sind gefragt. Keine Tour für absolute Fahranfänger! 


TIRES

We are partly on gravel roads, but not on the “Dakar”. With the serial tire the non-asphalted sections are thus easily feasible. Should it rain, we may take detours for some off-road passages.

DAY 1

Individual arrival until 8:30 am to the starting point in Bad Urach. Short hello, introduction and short group driving instructions. At 9 o’clock we will start on the heights of the Swabian Alb. A first tank stop is planned after about 120 km, and at the latest when the stomachs begin to growl slowly, we should be on the southern plateau towards the Danube Valley and have found a nice restaurant.

We continue through the Danube mountain landscape and its small valleys to our accommodation for the evening and the night. Now finally the time has come for a cool refreshment drink and we are eagerly awaiting the evening talks after we have enjoyed the Badisch-Swabian cuisine …


DAY 2

At the latest today, confessed enduro drivers and motorcyclists will find out that there are sensational beautiful landscapes and driving routes, and you definitely do not always have to go abroad. A valley and pass tail line seamlessly joins the next. We snake slowly towards north. Even today, distances can not be expressed simply in kilometers, but the driving time must be taken into account. In the early evening our hometown exit ends in the area of Tübingen.
