I'm a little West/South near Worms. I've done some riding south of Darmstadt, lots in the HD area,
explored some around Wiesbaden and Kaiserslautern.
You should be carefull about riding in Germany though.
Trails in Baden-Württemberg smaller than 2 meters are "nicht gestattet." That means closed to
mountain bikes. Be happy for that. It was considered (and is) a victory that the initiative to
ammend the law forbidding riding on anything smaller than 3.5 meters was rejected.
As to riding in the state of Hessen: "Radfahren im Wald ist nur auf festen Wegen gestattet." That
means trails that a truck can drive on.
for the laws on riding in Germany. Use
google for a translation if necessary.
Pretty much anything technical is verboten in Germany if the Forster is nearby and in a bad mood.
Singletrack is generally only allowed on private land.
Also, Hikers in HD are assholes. If you go there, don't ride on a weekend after 10-11 am.
Shoot me an email if your interested in searching out some stuff either up in your area or
