    A nice Black Forest route....

    .... courtesy of the latest edition of Tourenfahrer magazine. 470 kms or 300 miles in Christian units, so a good day out or gentle bimble for two days. The eagle eyed amongst you will have spotted that it misses out a chunk of the B500. This is is great news as so many correspondents to this site say that it’s shite... or that is what their mate says or it’s what they have heard. But hey, make your own mind up.





    The full details are on the free (every fecker likes free and no effort) Tourenfahrer website:

    https://www.tourenfahrer.de/tour-datenbank/

    “How do we do it, mate?” Easy...

    Click on the route circled....



    This will open up....



    Look at it (if you can’t read ‘foreign’) in slack jawed wonder. Zoom in and out on the Open Street Map or whatever it is.

    Then look at the pictures. Everyone likes pictures:



    Click on a picture and, as if by magic, it will get bigger....



    Scroll down a bit and you’ll see that for a couple of euro you can download the route in a bikermate friendly gpx file format:



    Which is great if you can’t be arsed to create it yourself from the map that we talked about earlier. The really tight (and there are some amongst us) will begrudge the couple of euro and that they have been told all about this wonderful route for free or as part of their modest Ł12 subscription (if they can be arsed to pay it that is, or they’ll just continue with their leech like habits) so will have to put up with the map and make a bit of effort.

    Anyway, enough of all that. Tourenfahrer, along with its sister magazines, are great sources of easy to use free(ish) help. Try them and build your own databank of great ideas; it’ll save you typing “Me and my 12 mates we is off to the Forest and we is needing routes and stuff for us holiday in the Forest....”. It won’t of course but at least I tried.

    Lovely area and Schiltach is a great stop for lunch by the river (burn).

    A nice Black Forest route....

    For those with easy access to Calais, it would make a great mini-break. If you get your skates on you can get to say, Schenkenzell, at the top of the route in a day. Then spend a day (or two) hooning and get your skates on to come back.

    Kurviger will give you twisty and not so twisty ways to get there from Calais. All in all, job done with just a few clicks of a mouse and a bit of imagination. Need ‘biker friendly digs’, to use the vernacular? Easy. Tourenfahrer has ‘partner houses’ which, oddly enough, welcome bikers of all creeds, races and intellectual capabilities. Job’s a carrot. Enjoy!

    PS Just noticed that the bloke in the picture on the main route page of Tourenfahrer magazine is a fat fecker on a GSA. He can be a role model. Two huge panniers, expanding tank bag, stuff strapped on the back, bling...... That he also appears to be on the wrong side of the road is a bikermate bonus.

    I am getting the vibes that Kurviger is the new Michelin Map obsession chez Wapping .... !

    Looking at his style, he also appears to have a broom stick up his arse ...?!

    Do the biker friendly digs do full English breakfast mate, don't eat none of that foreign muck? If I send my satnav (or is twatnav) to you, will you upload the routes for me?

    Many thanks biker mate

    Thanks for this Wappers. Staying near Waldkirch for 3 nights in June, had already plotted a ride south of Freiburg, will see if my route can be improved using this.

    Avoiding B500 this time, first ridden 2002, when you really could GLF. Now too busy, over policed etc, was there 2018

    I reckon that would be a fantastic weekend and even better midweek. I've ridden in that area a few times and it's great.

    Midweek would be better. I think the routes avoid roads closed at weekends but the road from Freiburg to Todtnau over Schaunisland would be a good addition as it is a cracker, but it is closed at weekends for bikes.
    This space deliberately left blank as the author writes too much pretentious bollocks as it is.

    Michelin maps are your friend, when all the other friends (and your phone signal) have departed.

    I noticed that, too.

    He does not seem at ease with his steed.
