Rheinradweg Cycle Route Done in its Two Weeks Extent

Last two weeks from Jun 18 till Jun 29 a group of five cyclists including myself completed a part of European cycle route Rheinradweg along the Rhine river from Konstanz to Köln. The route went along Germany, Switzerland and France. In total we cycled slightly more than 1000 km from Lake Constance to Westphalia region. This equals to around 100 km per day.

Such a route when going by the official cycle way may impress one by variety of different surfaces and steepness of curves. The surface easily changes from smooth asphalt to stones and wet dirt after the rain. Constant curves and artificial barriers right across the cycle way do not allow to keep the rate constant. But, there are also long descents where one can relax and rest. Definitely recommended to go on a race bicycle as part of preparations to the Paris–Roubaix race competition.

Along with restoring my mind I will do a set of additional postings regarding the different aspects of the route.
