"Der große Jogl" leads once around the region Joglland - Waldheimat on the most different ways, roads and trails. Many places, such as the Hochwechsel or the Masenberg convince with the fantastic view, others with the special additional offer for bikers, such as the Trail Land (variant 1). Again and again, huts or rustic inns invite you to stay, the certified Bed & Bike establishments along the route are particularly suitable for overnight stays on this multi-day tour. Due to the individual division of the stages (2-4 days), this tour is ideally suited for all cyclists, extreme cyclists may complete the tour with its approximately 200 km and 5600 meters of altitude in one day.

Variant 2 of the tour "Der große Jogl" leads from the Toten Mann over the Wildwiese to the next connection point, the former Gasthof Kreuzwirt.

A special service along the tour "Der große Jogl" is the luggage transport - just cycle carefree, without annoying extra luggage. While you are on the way, your luggage will be brought to your next stage destination (by 17:00 at the latest).

The right bike for this tour is a mountain bike. Road bikes are not recommended.

Breakdowns can happen - but rarely at the door of a service station: a basic equipment of tools and accessories therefore never hurts! Spare tube and/or repair kit, universal wrench, air pump, brake and shift cable and a screwdriver can never hurt.

Suitable footwear, clothing in the "onion principle" and a backpack belong to the basic equipment.

Take enough to drink and eat with you - not everywhere there are refreshment stops.
