CyclingUP in the Black Forest







You are visitor nr.

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 French Alps 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.
