Mountainbike Guides

The technical concept

The proven handy landscape format of the bikeline cycling guides has been retained for the bikeline mountain bike guides. Behind the sturdy hardcover hides a handy spiral binding that allows the tour sheets to be taken out individually. The tour descriptions and maps are arranged on double folded sheets (making them four-sided), so that you don’t carry around a lot of single sheets, but 1 to maximum three four-sided sheets. These inside sheets of the mountain bike guides are made of strong, laminated paper, making them water-resistant and sweat proof. The pages can be folded in the middle into a handy format, making them fit easily in your pocket.

The content

The most important element of the mountain bike guides are the detailed maps at a scale of 1:35.000. The maps inform you about the kind of route, hill slopes, traffic volume and main tourist facilities. Contour lines and relief shading complete the picture.

The short-held but very precise textual track information describes the route, in addition to the map, to help you get along "in the wild" in any case.

A good height profile shows you at a glance what to expect on the respective tour. The clear route characteristics clarify the overall level of difficulty, the length of the tour, the altitude differences, the demands on your riding technique and physical condition and the amount of traffic.
