The network of cycle paths for the cycling region Hannover starts in the centre of Hannover, at the popular Maschsee lake. From here, 15 regional routes and three circular cycling routes traverse the region of Hannover like a spider's web, with the result that tours to different destinations and of completely different lengths are possible. The good connections to the local public transport allow a number of additional combinations.
The central circular cycling route, the Green Ring, runs around the state capital of Lower Saxony, at the edge of the city of Hannover, and is 80 km long. For more than 10 years, the course has been marked with the colour blue. If you come across fences, benches, street lamps, wooden posts, curbstones or manhole covers and other objects in the area that are painted blue, you are on the right path.
The Leine-Heide-Radweg (Leine-Heath Cycle Route) also leads past Hannover's Maschsee lake and not far from the Royal Gardens of Herrenhausen. The 410 km long-distance cycle route leads from the source of the Leine at Leinefelde (Thuringia), over the varied low mountain landscape of the Leine Uplands, through the tourism region Hannover and Lüneburger Heide, to Hamburg.
To the south-west of Hannover is the northern-most offshoot of the low mountain range, in the form of the 405 m high Deister. Around the chain of hills runs the approximately 80 km Deisterkreisel (Deister Circle), connecting towns and landscapes with one another. Here too, the excellent S-bahn connections make it possible to ride various legs of the course, depending on desire.
The Aller-Radweg (Aller Cycle Route) runs to the north of Hannover, in the area of the Aller-Leine Valley and the Celle region. It connects the Weser and Elbe rivers on a course of 285 km in total and can, of course, also be ridden in stages.
