From Center Parcs Park Eifel you turn left on the L96. After 6 kilometers the first slope comes and after that the route descends with two more heavy hills to the Moselle. There you experience the ultimate Eifel feeling. Along the Moselle we cycle along a beautiful cycle path – watch out for other cyclists – and get ready for the climb from Bremm. Almost 5 km at 7% on average is the bite of the day. We have created a special Strava segment on this climb. This is followed by a 40 km long plateau with small nods. We drive through picturesque villages, high-altitude roads and through the meadows. There is also a supply for the final 20 km before the end. At approximately 5 km from the park, participants in the 100 km will say goodbye to the 150 km route and cycle back to the park via a peak to a height of 535 meters.

Social Ride

With just under 1000 meters, the social ride is going to be a nice warm-up for Saturday. We leave as a group and wait the first half on top of the slopes until the group is complete again. After 28 kilometers the toughest slope awaits and on top we continue with the first group for the second part of the trip. A second part is waiting as a group for the last participants. The route takes us west of the park, a place we hardly ever get on Saturday.
