Cycling Information
On this tour we cycle 229 km over five days (an average of 46 km per day). The terrain is mostly flat with several short uphill sections, generally when ascending out of river valleys. We mostly follow well maintained asphalt riverside cycle paths (70%), with short sections on gravel tracks and minor roads. A support vehicle carries our luggage from point to point throughout but cannot escort the rides along the cycle paths. We have graded the route as easy.
