From RiDE magazine "Bitche, Ludwigswinkle and Frankenstein might sound like a particularly litigious firm of Franco-German barristers, but they're also towns linking into one of the least-known but most entertaining rides across the border of France and Germany. The region is known as Pfalzerwald. The best Forest you've never heard of. "
