On the 1st Tuesday of each month, a "TNS light" tour is ridden; TNS light means a shorter route with less gradients or climbs and a more relaxed pace, suitable for beginners. However, safe braking and riding technique are basic requirements for participation. Wearing a helmet and protectors is recommended.
TNS light tours also start and end at the Hafenpark. After about 15 km there is a break in the Hafenpark, so that skaters can exit after half the tour.
