Starting from Zwickau, cyclists can follow the Mulderadweg (Mulde cycle route) along Zwickauer and Vereinigte Mulde over 158km. Starting from Nossen you can ride along 140km beside the Freiburger Mulde.
Both routes lead you through the Geopark Porphyryland and unveil its scenic beauty. The Mulderadweg is connected to many other bike routes: Between Döbeln and Rosswein the Elbe-Mulde-Radwanderweg crosses your way, in Trebsen you can access the Mulde-Elbe-Radroute and in Wurzen the Leipzig-Elbe-Radroute as well as the Dahlener-Heide-Radroute.
The Geopark Porphyryland can be reached from Leipzig, the nearby major city via two bike routes: The Parthe-Mulde-Radweg meanders through the lovely Parthenaue and leads you through Borsdorf und Naunhof to Grimma. The Leipzig-Elbe-Radroute brings you via Brandis to Wurzen. Both routes meet with the Mulderadweg. Between the towns of Wurzen and Grimma an excellent bike lane has been built on the dam of the former Muldentalbahn (railway through Mulde valley): The Muldentalbahn-Radweg.
The land of white earth, as the region surrounding Mügeln is called due to its rich kaolin resources, can be experienced from the bike saddle on three themed routes focusing on the fruit production in the area and leading you on romantic paths through extensive plantations and small villages.
