Going to be in Hamburg for a while. Anywhere good round there for (road) cycling? E.g. day rides around the local countryside, could drive a little way to start but would prefer riding out. I’ve seen there seems to be a popular route up the river for starters.
I’ve only ridden the mtb around the Wedel area and ridden the cycle way into the city. Apparently the cycle way take you right to the coast and it can be used as a basis to get you out of the city and into the surrounding countryside. There is a bike sportive which uses a route south of the city which a friend of mine did and said it was surprisingly hilly as the area around Hamburg is flat. Click for the Hamburg sportive
The area around the north of the city reminded me of the New Forrest area….it’s very horsey.
