Bike Race Through Oberursel on 1 May 2022

We long-term residents of Oberursel are familiar with this annual event. For the newcomers to Oberursel and vicinity, this might prove to be a challenge to get in and out of Oberursel on that day. Some roads will be blocked for traffic as early as 8:53, and some until 13:16.
From my experience, it is best to leave your home around 8:00.

These roads will be affected:

  • Waldlust-Hohemark
  • Im Heidegraben/Hohemarkstraße
  • Altkönigstraße/Steinmühlenweg
  • Hommkreisel
  • Oberhöchstädter Straße/An der Heide
  • Gablonzer Straße/Zimmersmühlenweg

Edit on Sat, 30 April, 18:36: One of my friends pointed out that the bikers’ route might differ from the one above. See here: Hessenschau Conclusion: If you have the option to stay home, then do so...

This year’s May Day, we are heading to the Frankfurt Airport to pick up a friend, due to arrive at 11:35. Instead of allowing the regular 25 minutes for the drive, we will leave the house two hours earlier. Getting stuck in traffic and road blocks is no fun, but having a leisurely breakfast at the airport surely is.
