The tour starts at the stud St.Johann which can be found a few kilometres north of the village of St.Johann. The stud belongs to the state stud of Marbach. Just at the beginning of the tour we pass the foal farm. We cycle mostly through fields and a quite flat landscape around St.Johann and pass little villages like Upfingen, Ohnastetten and the country inn "Stahlecker Hof" where we can eat well.
Diese Tour lässt sich mit Rundtour 12 zu einem ausgedehnten Radachter verknüpfen.
This quite short tour starts at the stud St.Johann where we follow the alley in eastern direction and thereby reach the foal farm of the stud. There we turn right and at the following intersection left and pass "Rutschenfelsen" (viewing point). We continue through the forest until we reach the country road to Bad Urach. We follow this road for a short while on the cycle way, then cross it and follow the way in southern direction. Downwards we pass meadows and fields and reach the little village of Upfingen where we turn left before the church. We follow "Kirchgasse" and at the intersection behind the last houses of the village we turn into south-western direction. A little later we reach a farm where we turn right. We cross the country road and follow the cycle way which leads parallel to the country road in south-western direction. We turn right where the way is ending at the crossroad and then immediately left. We continue straight on, cross the country road again and continue on the cycle way into western direction until we reach Ohnastetten. We pass Ohnastetten right straight forward and at the western outskirts of the village we follow the way to the right. At the next intersection we turn left and then just right again. The way leads us downwards to "Stahlecker Hof", a country inn. There we turn right and in opposite of the parking site we turn right again and follow the way through the forest. We gon straight on in northern direction. At the intersection with a huge, old ash tree we turn left and then pass woody hills, meadows and fields until we reach a curve to the left. Behind this curve we turn sharply to the right and continue again again through the forest. After crossing the country road again, we nearly reach the starting point of our tour: the stud St.Johann.
