‘A mad ride to one of Europe’s best roads. And all in a weekend’
Nominated by Jason Cannadine, Yamaha XSR700 Route A quick 400mile dash to BadenBaden in Germany Length 880 miles What makes it special The Black Forest is home to one of the best riding roads in Europe – the B500and it’s only 400 miles away. Get there in a day, ride the 40-mile ‘track’ as many times as you can over the weekend and head back for Sunday night. The B500 carves its way down the middle of the Black Forest and wriggles up and over mountain passes with gorgeous scenery and rollercoaster turns. It’s a biker’s dream. The northern section is the most exhilarating; a two-year-old with a crayon couldn’t have drawn more twists, curls and whirls. Ride this road Baden-baden to Freudenstadt. The whole ribbon is just unnaturally flawless, thanks to a finely balanced blend of hairpins, lefts, rights and long, fast sweepers. Take a picture at There are loads of top look-out points on the B500. Stay at Pension-williams is an excellent biker friendly hotel. Visit pension-williams.com for more info.
