Winey Road - TRAIL

Winey Road - Trail, Iphofen, Germany

Begin with a long road ride to the vineyard hills and keep pedaling up hill on the small road past the swimbad. Hit some singletrack ascents and many kilos of doubletrack in the forest. For extra pleasure, a knarly descent from the paraglider launch takes you smiling (or bleeding) back towards the swimbad.

WE HAVE ONLY BEEN HERE A COUPLE OF MONTHS AND THIS IS THE BEST TRAIL I HAVE FOUND SO FAR. THE CLIMBS TO THE TOP AND DECENTS TO THE BOTTOM ARE STEEP. YOUR LUNGS WILL BURN AND LEGS WILL HURT BEFORE YOU REACH THE TOP. ONLY THOSE IN GOOD CONDITION WILL MAKE IT TO THE TOP WITHOUT DISMOUNTING. ONCE ON TOP THE TRAILS ARE SUITABLE FOR ALL SKILL AND FITNESS LEVELS. THERE ARE PLENTY OF OPPORTUNITIES FOR SPEED BUT ONLY AS LONG AS YOUR LEGS ARE WILLING TO MASH ON THE PEDALS. WHEN THEY GET TIRED THE TERRAIN ROLLS JUST ENOUGH TO KEEP THE PACE EXCITING.

PARK AT THE HALF PIPE IN THE TOWN OF IPHOFEN. RIDE NORTH CLIMBING THOUGH THE VINEYARDS AND AIM FOR THE SW CORNER OF THE MOUNTAIN. WHEN YOU REACH THE SMALL PARKING LOT AT THE TREE LINE TAKE A RIGHT. 50 METERS FARTHER AND LOOK FOR A TRAIL TO THE LEFT. IT CLIMBS STRAIGHT FOR THE TOP. YOU ARE NOW AT THE LAUNCH RAMP FOR THE PARAGLDERS. CHECK OUT THE VIEW, TURN AROUND AND RIDE PAST THE TRAIL YOU JUST CAME UP. SHORTLY AFTER YOU WILL SEE ANOTHER TRAIL TO THE RIGHT. TAKE IT! THE MOUNTAIN IS ABOUT 2 KILOMETERS NORTH TO SOUTH AND 5K EAST TO WEST. STAY ON TOP BUT TO THE SIDES AND YOU WILL FIND SINGLE TRACK RINGS THE WHOLE HILL. IF YOU RIDE DOWN THE EAST SIDE AND HEAD SOUTH ACROSS THE MAIN ROAD TO THE FOREST ON THE OTHER SIDE YOU MAY BE ABLE TO FIND MORE MILES OF SINGLETRACK THERE. WE RAN INTO A LOCAL THAT SHOWED US A WAY TO LOOP IT ALL THE WAY BACK TO IPHOFEN.
