"Everyone who finishes the ULTRA Bike is a winner." This sentence was coined by Mike Kluge shortly after he won the first edition of the Black Forest ULTRA Bike Marathon in 1997. 118 kilometers and over 3,500 meters of altitude characterize the traditional race in the heart of the Black Forest. The race takes place on and around the Feldberg mountain that, with its 1492 meter peak, is the landmark of Germany's largest low mountain range. Join us in the Dreisam-Valley and the Upper Black Forest to be part of this atmospheric marathon classic that attracts around 5,000 mountain bike enthusiasts year after year.

TEMPERATURES

Black Forest Temperatures in July are usually summery warm, reaching 30°C in the valleys on sunny days. Nevertheless, it can also be cool on the peaks. Depending on the weather, low temperatures of about 10°C are possible as well.
