The climb from Oppenau to Ruhestein covers a relatively long distance (19 kilometers)
and runs mainly through the Lierbachtal.
The slope is easy
but there are two exceptions.
The first steep section (7-9%) starts at the parking lot of the
Allerheiligen falls after seven kilometers of cycling
and ends two kilometers further on.
After that steep section follows a descent and about one and a half kilometers further on
Allerheiligen is reached.
This place consists of ruins of a monastery and forms a tourist attraction.
After Allerheiligen the road starts to climb again up to the
fork of the roads to Ottenhöfen and Ruhestein.
We head for Ruhestein.
First, 13 elevation meters are lost in a descent.
After crossing a brook, the second steep section is waiting
(one kilometer of 8-10%).
The ride is completed with a stretch of
more than five kilometers with a gentle slope
(mostly 2%) until the Schwarzwaldhochstraße is reached at Ruhestein.
