The area is perfect for cycling, because it is surrounded by greenery and offers a breathtaking view of mountains and nature. The roads are also in very good condition, and they are closed from the traffic on the day of the race. Enjoy the serenity as the country roads lead you through the wonderful forests of the Eifel. The city of Bitburg will be the starting point and finish of this event. Originating here is the most famous Bitburger company and landmark of the city, the Bitburger Brewery. The Pilsen-style lager is the most famous beer in Germany, so at the end of the event it is worth going to a restaurant and having a well deserved pint.
