The Swabian Alb, particularly the northwest escarpment known as the Albtrauf, has long been regarded among connoisseurs as an attractive mountain biking area.

Biking in the Swabian Alb region

Every biker gets their money's worth thanks to the large selection of different routes. For example, on the 368 kilometre long Swabian Alb Bike Crossing (Bike X-ING), which is divided into several stages, in the bike parks featuring multiple obstacles or on one of the many other mountain bike tours. High demands on condition to some extent and always an inspiring varied natural landscape are offered here.

Bike X-Ing

With a length of about 370 kilometres and an elevation gain of 9,600 metres, the Bike X-ING is an attractive route for mountain bikers who like to ride many metres of elevation gain.

Between Tuttlingen near Lake Constance and Aalen on the northeast edge of the Alb, the Swabian Alb Bike Crossing is always oriented towards the Albtrauf, the steep stage of the Swabian Alb which slopes up to 400 metres above the surrounding countryside.
