The beauty of fatigue and the thrill of conquest

Dear Eroica Germania participants, It was very special to be able to organize the Eroica Germania despite these very difficult times. We had to prepare by having long discussions with everyone involved; Baron Frederik zu Knyphausen from the Knyphausen winery, Mr. Kunkel, the mayor of the city of Eltville, but above all with the health department of the Rheingau-Taunuskreis. Together we developed a hygiene concept to allow this event to take place. It was hard work and cost us many nights. Thanks to you, and above all your willingness to adhere to all these guidelines with us, we were able to experience a weekend together in a familiar atmosphere and finally another Eroica. We know that this year we had to forego some of the smaller events we have grown fond of, such as the Concours d'Elegance or the band playing lovely music from Thursday. But next year we will catch up on all these things and for now we are only grateful. That you came to us in these difficult times is not self-evident either. So all the praise and thanks that we have received go out to you too. Without you there would have been no Eroica Germania this year. Hopefully we'll see you next year.

The Routes
Short Route
Short Route
The Eroica Germania short route includes everything any rider might expect from the Rheingau region: suggestive sights of the Rhine river, vineyard lines as far as the eye can see,
Medium Route
Medium Route
The Eroica Germania medium route combines breathing-taking landscapes with a pretty much challenging course and some nice gravel roads.
Long Route
Long Route
The long route embodies an Eroica-style ride perfectly: dust, sweat and reward! With nearly 2.400 m of total ascent on both asphalt and gravel roads, this route is definitely very challenging.
