Three beautiful routes around Tecklenburg

As of today you need a negative PCR test, but if you have one then cycling in the Teutoburgerwald (near Tecklenburg) is an absolute joy. It's South Limburg in miniature, just across the border near Enschede. But much quieter. A secret tip.

Sportive

The region has a popular sportive amongst people from the Benelux: the Tecklenburger Rundfart. Traditionally, it always takes place on the Saturday after Ascension Day, on the same day as the Flèche de Wallonie. This year, it would have been on May 15, were it not for the fact that the tour has been cancelled. Not to worry, because we have three routes that are actually even more beautiful. The first part of the Tecklenburger Rundfart, north of Ibbenbüren, is much less than the second part, in the Teutoburgerwald. Our routes go 100% through the Teutoburg Forest and include some hidden climbs.

Starting point

The three routes have exactly the same starting point: Holtkamp near Ledde. Right by the highway exit and free parking. From here it is a few kilometers flat to the first climb, so ideal to warm up.
