MTB Everest


Trans Hermann MTB Everest is a self supported bike packing event along the Teutoburger Forrest.

The Ultimate MTB Challenge!

First Edition is planned for 22th of September 2018. A self-supported MTB event on a fixed trail. 295km in distance and around 9000m of elevation gain. The spirit of this Event is mainly to be an Adventure.

"One of the longest and toughest single trails in Germany on which 95% are unpaved"

This time we design your route and provide the adventure!

The THEC has 3 categories: Solo, Pair and a Relay of 2 riders


1. Riders must respect the Environment, other Riders and Hikers at all time during the event.

2. Riders must complete the full course from start to finish on a fixed route in under 30 hours.

3. Riders must be fully self-supported.

4. No Drafting at any time.

5. Riders must follow the local laws at any time.

6. All bikes have to pass a check up before the start. Especially lights, brakes and helmet.

7. No prize money.


>>Please download the gpx file of the route here!<<

Start and Finish will be in Riesenbeck - Germany.
The Route leads you across the Teutoburger Forrest along the Statue of Hermann and all the way to the turning point close to the Externsteine.

We will provide a Control station at this halfway point. This doesnt mean you will get food or spare parts. It is still an unsupported event. At this control station we wanna check your spirit, make some pictures and tell the world you made it halfway.
