The green Black Forest is a wonderful region for cyclists,
who like to ride uphill.
It has a dense network of well-paved, quiet roads
and many climbs form a significant challenge
mainly because they contain very steep sections.
Seven ascents of this website have a section of one kilometer
steeper than 12%.
There are only four such ascents in the
and none in the French Pyrenees
and the Vosges.
Also six Black Forest climbs are harder
than the toughest one in the Vosges.
On the other hand, 1000 elevation meters are, with one exeception, not exceeded.
The landscape of many climbs starts with meadows in a valley,
followed by a relatively long section through the forest
and ends with a short part permitting wide views.
