GFNY Deutschland

September 03 2017
Hamelin, Germany
 
 
 

The inaugural GFNY Deutschland is set to take place in the picturesque town of Hamelin in Northern Germany on August 28, 2016.

The two course options offer exceptional riding and racing for anyone. Smooth roads, lots of hills and beer at the finish will ensure that riders from across the world get a proper German cycling experience.

With long daylight hours and comfortable temperatures, August is the perfect time to host a cycling event in Germany. Hamelin is embedded into the gentle hills of the Weser Mountains Region, with the river Weser running through town. Situated just 45 minutes from Hannover airport, Hamelin also boasts excellent railway connections.

It's the home of the darkest character from the German fairytales: the Pied Piper. More than a million day tourists are drawn to Hamelin each year for not only Pied Piper, but also for the magnificent old town itself.

After a start in the picturesque surroundings of Hameln downtown it goes beyond towards Emmerthal and in the first pitch to the Ottenstein plateau ( 7-8% gradient). After rapid downhill the track takes us towards Eschershausen, Grünenplan and Duingen.
In this section as well must be expected some nice slopes. Behind the beautiful mountainous Iht the ride continues towards Lauenstein, from where you will have to face then up to 12% gradient uphill –  done this, as a reward, follows a super-fast downhill (-90km/h) section bringing us to Börry.
This Part is one of the most beautiful of the entire circuit (- new pavement, curvy downhill – just awesome!).

While the Gran Fondo jockeys must take the road towards Hameln Hameln-Rohrsen, the “Mediofondisti” can already prepare themselves for their final sprint in the center of Hameln.

The Granfondo field of riders continues via Unsen and Pötzen to the mountain classification (- 15/16%) at the Schaum- and Paschenburg. After that challenge we turn back to Hameln  then in race pace.

Be sure that you will experience a unique and challenging bike course!!!
