Location & Dates

Location & Dates

Grinduro Germany is located at Wildbach Camping, Hellenthall, one hour from Cologne, right next to the Eifel National Park. The area is a paradise for cyclists and the site is connected to many well marked trails.

The event weekend runs from 1300 Friday, May 24 to 1300 Sunday May 26th. Camping is available Friday and Saturday night.



In short, Grinduro is just what the name suggests: gravel road race + mountain bike-style enduro = one long loop of pavement and dirt, where finishing times aren’t based on overall loop time, but four or five timed segments.

But Grinduro is not just a bike race. It’s a celebration of cycling with as much emphasis on the fun as the ride, with excellent food, an impressive display of art and incredible handmade bikes, live music, camping, and a festival atmosphere.

Route & Stages

Route & Stages

Grinduro Germany includes some of, if not the best riding within the Eifel region. The 100km course includes challenging hill climbs, fast gravel roads and twisting singletrack sections. With over 6,000ft of climbing, the course is a challenge but it rewards you back with great riding and stunning views of this special corner of Germany.

Grinduro features four timed stages throughout the day for you to race for victory. These demand everything from the participants and the faster overall will achieve podium glory!

Excellent Food

Excellent Food

We love good food. Therefore, we have planned a fantastic offer for the weekend. Riders and their companions will be welcomed to Grinduro on Friday with an inclusive dinner. You will also get breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday, plus, breakfast on Sunday morning!



You can ride any type of bicycle (no ebikes!), although we recommend a gravel bike or hardtail MTB. The ultimate setup is probably a gravel bike with fast-rolling 40c tubeless tires and a 1x11-speed crank set... We prefer Shimano GRX. Be prepared with at least two extra tubes, a multi-tool and mini-pump.

There will be feed zones, but smart riders will be self sufficient and bring at least two water bottles and their favourite nutritional supplies. And don’t take to the start line without a helmet on!



There will be lots of fun volunteer opportunities available, including course marshals, packet pickup assistance, aid station support, and much, much more. Grinduro wouldn’t happen without the help of all you amazing volunteers out there!

You will help us out on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
