Gö Feldweg Omloop 41km

Feldweg Home

The short Feldweg Omloop – 41km (Revised August 9, 2022)

The ´short´ Omloop has been revised with a new route out from the velodrome featuring a section of gravel and importantly more kopfsteinpflaster.

The route: Volkerode/Obernjesa/Stockhausen/Wendebachstasse/Reinhausen/Diemarden.

We miss out both the eastern Bremke and southern Friedland sections of the other tours.

The total distance of the tour is 41km of which approximately 6.2km is ridden on public roads open to motor cars, the rest consists of asphalt field roads, concrete Betonweg, gravel, cobbles, Ribinou and cycle paths. Much of the Betonweg is also a cycle path.


Route – 41.76km
Feldweg Asphalt and Concrete/Cycle paths – 30.1km
5 Kopfsteinpflaster Sektors – 2.5km
7 Feldweg Gravel Sektors – 2.8km
1 Ribinou/grün weg – 0.4km
Strasse/Public Road – Asphalt and open to cars etc – 6.2km

200m of elevation including three climbs.

Gravel/Cobble categories (this is purely subjective & made up by us)
We have graded the gravel 1 to 5 with 5 being the roughest (there is also an Hors Cat for very extreme).

Cat 1 – mostly hard packed and rideable on almost all bikes.
Cat 2 – often hard packed, a little rougher, potholes and challenging.
Cat 3 – loose surface, more ruts & potholes, gradient changes, bigger stones with greater caution required. (may include downhill or a turn)
Cat 4 – very rough, loose with larger stones and deep ruts/potholes.
Cat 5 – as 4 but may also be downhill, maybe tight turns or with single track and ruts.
HC – Mind bogglingly hard.

Please bear in mind that roads may at times be closed because of farm or forestry workings, please be considerate to all.

Many smooth asphalt or concrete field roads can be heavily compromised by detritous.

Stages
The tour is divided into stages and stated are the types of sections you will ride per stage.

Villages on route are included and at what distance they come.

Stage/Title

Stage 1 – Velodrome Exit @ 0 KM

After riding one lap of the velodrome we join a gravel path almost at once and this section can be busy with other users so be watchful and be friendly!

SECTIONS – 1 Gravel (0.5 km – Cat 1/2), Feldweg.

Stage 2 – Kiessee Kopfsteinpflaster

SECTIONS – Cobbles (0.3km Cat 2), 1 Gravel (0.1 km – Cat 1), Public Road

Stage 3 – Kiessee/Rosdorf

We pass the Dreckwarte monument and go over the Leine Dam adjacent to the newly created wetlands.

The second gravel sector here or more like a stone road also features on the Gö Strade Bianche.

SECTIONS – Betonweg, 2 Gravel (0.5 & 0.7 km – Cat 1/2), Public Road

Stage 4 – Rosdorf Kopfsteinpflaster

We ignore the asphalt cycle path and instead we ride the cobbles which run alongside the railway. 400 metres of pure pleasure!

SECTIONS – Cobbles (0.4 km – Cat 2)

The adjacent cyclepath is verboten in line with being a cool cyclist !

Rosdorf Railway Crossing @ 5.2 km

Stage 5 – Rosdorfer Warte/Heinrich-Sohnrey Straße

We cross the railway and head onto Betonweg with the now lost medieval Rosdorfer Warte above us.

SECTIONS – Feldweg Asphalt, Betonweg, Cycle path, Public Road

Stage 6 – Heinrich-Sohnrey Straße/Sieboldhausen

The following four stages inspired the Feldweg Omloop, and these farm roads are often heavy with detritus.

SECTIONS – Feldweg Asphalt, Betonweg, Cycle path

Sieboldhausen @ 11.1 km

Stage 7 – Sieboldhausen/Volkerode

Via Lemshausen @ 13.9 km

We ride towards Lemshausen and travel back almost the same way.

SECTIONS – Feldweg Asphalt, Gravel (0.2 km – Cat 2), Public Road

Volkerode @ 16.0 km

Stage 8 – Volkerode/Hauptstraße

We go left by the wonderful tree and head toward the wind turbines although we turn away before them.

SECTIONS – Feldweg Asphalt, Public Road

Stage 9 – Hauptstraße/Sieboldhausen

This is a lovely stage crossing the Autobahn featuring a flowing descent but which can be tricky when wet (mud).

SECTIONS – Feldweg Asphalt, Betonweg, Public Road

Sieboldhausen @ 19.5 km

Stage 10 – Sieboldhausen/Sieboldstraße

SECTIONS – Feldweg Asphalt, Betonweg, Public Road

Stage 11 – Sieboldstraße/Obernjesa

You are obliged by all that is cool not to ride on the asphalt, but to stick to the kopfsteinpflaster.

There is a baker in Obernjesa. (Bäckerei Könnecke, Dramfelder Str. 8)

SECTIONS – Betonweg, Cobbles (0.3 km – Cat 2), Public Road

Obernjesa @ 25.3 km

Obernjesa Railway Crossing @ 26.2 km

Stage 12 – Obernjesa/B27

Unlike the 61 and 78km Gö Feldweg Omloop we echo the 56km route and cross over the railway and head East to Reinhausen excluding the Southern stages.

Redundant Sugar Beet silos overlook our route and cobbles remain of what was once the Obernjesa Zuckerfabrix.

WARNING

We are revising this route and intend to exclude this section because it is confusing. Do ride it if you wish or simply miss it out and continue directly to Stockhausen.

In a nutshell a short section of single track links the cobbles with the gravel. This link which looks like you are entering a bush, is narrow, with plenty of branches at head height and on the exit be aware of the metal barrier at ground level to your left (You may wish to walk through).

SECTIONS – Cobbles (0.2km – Cat 2), Feldweg Asphalt, Gravel (0.4km – Cat 1/2), Public Road.

Via Stockhausen @ 27.4 km

SECTIONS – Public Road

Stage 13 – B27 Cyclepath/Wendebachstasse (Lake)/Reinhausen

The lake can be very, very busy with bathers being a popular spot for Göttingers. Please take care and ride in a cool chilled manner.

In Summer there is a stall selling food and drink.

SECTIONS – Betonweg, Cycle path, Feldweg Asphalt, Public Road

Wendebachstasse @ 29.4 km

Reinhausen @ 32.0 km

NOTE: The 56km/78km version of this ride heads to Bremke at Reinhausen, but on this tour we go left (as does the 60km) and climb toward Diemarden.

Stage 14 – Reinhausen/Diemarden

The third hill on this tour followed by a fast descent.

SECTIONS – Cycle path, Feldweg Asphalt, Public Road

Diemarden @ 33.7 km

Stage 15 –Diemarden/Gartelbahn/B27

The stage features one section of Ribinou a Breton word for farm or a green road. Although this section is stated as also featuring cobbles the narrow cycle path is in fact very mild, but it can be very busy with other users.

This section of Ribinou can get very muddy and you may wish to make a premature exit (its OK in summer, but there is big hole). It is also rough and you can instead ignore it completely and ride the mild cobbles of the Gartelbahn.

Note: There are plans to widen the cycle route and this may see a temporary closure, but as ever in German local politics there is now a big argument about it, therefore it could take a long time before it happens.

SECTIONS – Feldweg Asphalt, Cobbles (1.3 km – Cat 1), Public Road, Ribinou (0.4 km – Cat 3)

B27-Garteschenke @ 27.3 km

Stage 16 – A27 to the Velodrome

Be very careful crossing the busy B27.

The gravel sector here also features on the Gö Strade Bianche.

SECTIONS – Feldweg Asphalt, Betonweg, Cycle path, Gravel (0.5 km – Cat 1), Public Road
