Back by popular demand: GrünGürtel.

Let's cycle around Frankfurt and see all the different landscapes close to the city: old forests, fields of herbs, steep hillslopes (well sort of) with orchards, and the Nidda river valley.
The total round tour is 64km plus the short part from the meeting point to where the GrünGürtel reaches the Main at Gerbermühle. We would do the tour counter clockwise. The only steep climb would be in the morning and we can recover at Lohrbergschänke with an early Lunch. Second break is at the Schiffsmeldestelle in Höchst before we take the ferry (1€) across the Main. Final stop would be back at the Brazilian cocktail bar on the Main opposite the ECB (if it is still open in September) :-)

Most of GrünGürtel paved and suitable for MTB, trecking and city bikes. For those who don't want to do the full round, there are several exit points with either shortcuts or public transport.
Don't forget to bring at least one litre of water.
