In the middle of happiness

Itinerary

Route

Tour profile / Level 1-2

Ideal for families; it runs consistently on valley cycle paths without steep inclines. On the most days there is the possibility to choose independently the desired length of the route and adapt according a transfer by minibus or train to this. In addition for convenience you can take a day of rest. The tour is recommended for children from 12 years if they cycle alone. For younger children under the age of 5-6 we suggest a tagalong/trailer. (up on request).

    E-bikes

    With an E-bike every bike tour is a breeze! If you had few opportunities to cycle over the last weeks or if you are not sure concerning your fitness, but also with physical disabilities, every bike ride is a treat! The shiftable, low noise electric drive of our modern electro bike relieves you of some of the work and increases the pedal force up to 3 times ... So you can now book a bike tour together with cyclists who have different fitness level. Acclivity can be handled easily.

    Note: E-bikes are a great development, but should be - due to their driving characteristics (high weight + high speed) - booked only by very safe and experienced cyclists with a very good sense of balance. Not suitable are electric bikes for people who rarely ride a bicycle
