In addition to the typical swinging landscape of the Sauerland with hills, forests and valleys, lonely roads and challenging trails offer optimal conditions. The Bigge-Lister bike ring is divided into a challenging high-altitude route and an idyllic lake route. Whether you want to take a leisurely bike ride with your family or plan a tour on a mountain bike - this is the right place for you. From Wenden there is a direct connection to the Bigge-Lister bike ring in Olpe. Do you already know the mountain bike park in Attendorn or the pump track in Meinerzhagen?
