On the "Stoneman Miriquidi" road

A unique ride on the Ore Mountains' half-horst!

As strong as two

292 kilometres through the Czech Egergraben, 2 countries, 13 climbs and 4,900 metres' elevation gain between centuries-old mining tradition and the inspiring competitive sports legacy of the Ore Mountains - that's the Stoneman Miriquidi Road.

It is the alpha and omega challenge for racing bike fans, from A to O: from A for Altenberg to O for Oberwiesenthal. This one-of-a-kind route pushes the lactate into every racer's legs and their pulse to its limits.

The route

The Stoneman Miriquidi Road leads via Altenberg, one of the most important talent factories in winter sports in Germany, to Zinnwald-Georgenfeld on three balanced stages. Past the 869 metre high Stürmer begins a descent on fine asphalt roads along the Egertal. 

In the direction of Oberwiesenthal you have to climb the Königsanstieg, the 1,243 metre high Keilberg (Klínovec). On this section, the racing bike course passes the legendary Stoneman Miriquidi mountain bike adventure's cult checkpoints Keilberg, Fichtelberg (1,214 m) and Bärenstein (897 m). 

Past Checkpoint Holzhau, where Stoneman messenger Robert Petzold covered an incredible 22,622 metres of altitude in 24 hours and set a new world record on the 18 percent steep ramp, we then return to Altenberg again.
