Whether in one, two or three days – the C-Edition of the Stoneman Miriquidi Road is an extraordinary road bike experience in any case.
You decide where to start – whatever suits you best. You are entirely free to choose the date for your ride within the season.
The Stoneman Miriquidi Road C-Edition is located in the south of Saxony right at the north-west border of the Czech Republic.
- north-south spread: approx. 30 km
- east-west spread: approx. 70 km
The Stoneman Miriquidi Road is quickly and easily accessible from the surrounding regions via Autobahn A4, A17 and A72 in Germany as well as the motorways D7 and D8 in the Czech Republic.
Arrival by train is also possible at any time: Two stations on German (Annaberg-Buchholz, Olbernhau-Saigerhütte, Holzhau, Altenberg) side easily connect to the route.
The Stoneman Miriquidi Road C-Edition runs counter-clockwise and consists of 13 checkpoints. The entry to the route is possible at any point.
Important: The route runs on the public road network. Therefore, unlike the Stoneman Miriquidi Mountainbike, it is not signposted.
In addition, a small roadmap is included with each starter bag, showing the current route and the characteristics of the individual stages.
All roads lead to Stoneman Miriquidi Road. The best way to reach it by car:
- From Brandenburg, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Berlin via the A 13 to Dresden and on to the desired starting point.
- From Saxony-Anhalt, Hamburg, Bremen, Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein to Leipzig and then via the A 72 to the desired starting point.
- From Hesse, Thuringia, North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate, take the A4 to Chemnitz and continue on to your desired starting point.
- From Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg via the A 72 to Chemnitz and then on to the desired starting point.
A demanding 290(+26) km distance and 4.900(+400) meters elevation gain.
The Stoneman Miriquidi Road C-Edition is tough. Not only is the route 290 km long, but it includes 13 steep, winding ascents of up to 18 percent gradient which require strength and endurance. Gold is therefore only achievable for experienced and fit road cyclists. If in doubt, give yourself enough time for your first trip and try for the Silver or Bronze on your first go.

Stoneman Miriquidi Road-saison 2020: 30. April to 31. October
It was intense, demanding and very beautiful. Lots of nature, many views, many small roads, landscape very, very great - the route planners have put a lot of effort. Really recommended. I definitely want to ride again in 2018.
