I ventured out to ride a ´road´ based bike tour that links together asphalt and Betonweg field roads with cobbles and gravel, plus cycle paths and public roads.
The long Göttingen Feldweg Omloop without the gnarly gravel sections above Volkerode.
Living the dream – Flanders and Paris Roubaix.
Bravo! – Tanja Erath for featuring in a long early break (EF Education–Tibco–SVB) and Hannah Buch (from Gö) for starting the Women´s PRBX and working for her team Roland Cogeas Edelweiss Squad.

Feldweg Asphalt – not open to general motor traffic and may also be a cycle path.
Feldweg Betonweg – concrete and as above.
Feldweg Gravel (9 – 6.9km) – mild with loose stones & mostly hardpacked.
Cobbles (4 – 2.1km) – some may argue they are not, 2 are very mild.
Ribinou (1 – 0.4km) – a Breton word for a green farm road.
Cycle path – a cycle path shared with pedestrians with an asphalt surface.
Straße/Public Road – Asphalt and open to cars etc (29km).
