Bliesgau Bike Day MTB, ROAD and road night race.

Post by thedude76 on Mon May 16, 2011 10:59 am

Sunday 5 June 2011 for the MTB and Road ride
Saturday 4 June for the night road ride

MTBThis is another MTB ride similar to the one we did in PS on the 15th of May. It is only about a 30 min drive away. The 24km course has been labeled as family friendly and can be completed on a trekking bike. The 63km course should have some nice singletrack and a few challenging climbs. I was checking out the course profile and map and it appears that the route even cuts into France for while.

The entry fee is 5 euros. Registration and start is between 0700-1000.

Als drittes Event und neu in diesem Jahr bietet der RV Edelweiß unter dem Namen "Bliesgau Bike Day" 3 Mountainbike Strecken an. Von der 24 km Familien bis hin zum 63 km langen anspruchsvollen MTB Trail wird jedem MTB Fan etwas geboten. Die Strecken verlaufen im gesamten Bliesgau. Bei der Langstrecke sind einige sehr schöne Singeltrails und auch Anstiege zu bewältigen. Die kleine Strecke kann auch mit Trekkingräder gefahren werden und ist auch wie oben schon erwähnt Familientauglich.
Der Start ist von 7.00 bis 10.00 UHR in Bliesransbach auf dem Marktplatz.
Für die MTB Tour werden keine BDR Punkt vergeben.
MTB Strecken
24km 440Hm
43km 620Hm
63km 1250Hm

http://rv-edelweiss-bliesransbach.de/

I am planning on doing the 63km course. Does ayone want to join me?

ROADThere is also a road course for you roadies out there.
Am Sonntag den 5. Juni startet dann schon traditionell die "Bliesgau-Moselle Radtouristik" mit drei möglichen Strecken von 47 km, 79 km und 126 km. Eine Familienradtour über 25 km steht ebenfalls zur Auswahl. Die Lage Bliesransbachs im südlichen Saarland, in der Unesco Biosphärenregion direkt an der französischen Grenze, verspricht eine landschaftlich reizvolle Strecke durch den Bliesgau und das angrenzende Frankreich. Die Strecken sind alle auf wenig befahrenen Nebenstraßen was neben der anspruchsvollen Topografie mit einigen Anstiegen die Ausfahrt zum Erlebnis werden lässt.

There is also a night road race/ride on the 4th. BDR riders get 2 points for this

If I go it will be with the wife, but that is only if I can get her fork repaired! We would likely do the 24k.

Steve, is this marathon something I pay for now or is it something we do during the registration time. I am down to go but I can't read the german print on the website so I can't pre-register. Is this something you can help me with?

You pay when you register. It is not a marathon, it is more of a ride put on by a local club.

Sad This megablows, but I'm out of the ride. I took sick leave yesterday afternoon, and slept 16 hours straight hoping to get my health on track before Sunday. I'm still not winning that battle. I was looking forward to this course as a highlight for the month. Woe, woe is me. No

Sorry to hear that you aren't feeling good! I don't think that it will be a good day to ride anyways. Rain is coming down like I never seen by my house. I think I am out as well. Call me a fair weather rider! Sorry Steve and who ever else was going.

Ride report. Steve, Kirsten, and myself got up at 0430 to make the 0600 showtime. Nice drive to the village, got the bikes out with a half hour till registration opened. About the time the last bike was set up, the ride promoter came over and informed us the course markings were washed away the night before. There would be group rides led by the host at 0900, 1100, and 1300. That would have had us sipping coffee for a couple hours till the start of the first ride. Quick decision was made to hit the Woog instead. We packed back up and hit the road and we had a really nice ride on the long course at the Woog. We made the effort and washed out on the planned ride, but a wonderful make up trip out of the leftovers.

Did I see you guys on the rocky downhill section about 3/4 of the way through the look? I saw some people, but I had my headphones in, it looked like they stopped but I could not hear anything. I went through there around 12:30 or so.

Probably not. I think we were back in the car by 1130. There was two French guys out riding while we were though. Nice day for a ride though today.
