Story:
A ride down one of Europe's longest rivers. The trail closely follows that given in books 1,2 & 3 of the excellent Bikeline Rhein-Radweg books. Note that the gps trail as shown is my actual un-edited ride so contains quite a few 'getting lost' bits plus I suspect some quite illegal manoveures, follow it at your own risk!

The ride is a mixture of roads, paved cycleways & dirt tracks. There are many deviations due to building works and you can expect more if the weather has been very wet.

It would be easy to do sections as the railway follows closely the length of the route.

I stayed at hotels, b&b's etc in Switzerland they were about 90CHF per night and in Germany about 55 Euro. There are many camping sites that looked quite crowded.

Tips:
Take more time :-)
