Bikes of Taunus Bikepacking No. 5

Taunus Bikepacking No. 5 throws all kinds of surfaces from smooth asphalt to rocky trails at the riders, making the bike choice for this 1,000 kilometer ride as individual as interesting. Many steep climbs and unpredictable weather will test the bikes, riders and equipment.
