All five counties in Südwestfalen - Kreis Soest, Hochsauerlandkreis, Kreis Olpe, Märkischer Kreis and Kreis Siegen-Wittgenstein - have participated in the project and cyclists can enjoy the convenience of the hub system along approximately 3,300 kilometers in the region.
The tourist marketing of the bicycle network has also been jointly supported by the Südwestfalen districts. As part of the "Sauerland - Siegerland-Wittgenstein Cycle Workshop" project, information boards were designed, the information brochure "FahrRad - surprisingly relaxed" was published, tour flyers were printed, photo shoots were carried out, image films were shot, a website was set up and much more. The project was funded with a total of €280,000. Seventy percent of the funding came from the Objective 2 program in NRW and thus from EU and state funds, while the remaining 30 percent was financed by the five districts in Südwestfalen.
Sauerland-Radwelt e. V. is an association of 34 cities and communities in the Hochsauerlandkreis, Kreis Olpe, Märkischer Kreis, Kreis Soest and partly in the Kreis Waldeck-Frankenberg. The association is responsible for the further development of offers for touring cyclists and e-bikers as well as for racing cyclists and mountain bikers under the brand "Bike Arena Sauerland" and manages a signposted route network of more than 2500 kilometers.
