Regulations, Participants, Prices


Both days we will cycle as closed formation in row two by two. In order to clear the way and also for security reasons the formation will be headed by a clearly marked car. Behind the car will be a few cyclists from RTC Stuttgart who lead the formation. Neither these cyclists nor the car may be passed. Behind the formation will be another vehicle, marking the end of formation and equipped for technical support.

There will also be a chief en route who may command the formation if necessary. For the longer uphill stretches this chief will release a signal (whistle blow) after which everyone is free to find his or her individual speed.

After every about 30 miles there will be a break, where beverages, snacks and fruit will be at hand.

The event takes place in all weathers.

During the whole tour there is no chance to quit, unless having an accident or technical problem that can’t be solved. Also during our tour there will be no opportunity to catch clothes from your luggage. Please bring a windbreaker if needed.



Participation in the event is limited to 50 active cyclists. The route of the tour is challenging, cycling in closed formation requires discipline and constant attention.
