    Mostly quiet country roads, some dedicated cycle paths next to busy roads. Some hills, one berg! Nice locations for the hotel stops...D.N. 08/17
    5.6 28.09.2021 | Beni B. Salzburg and the 7 lakes

    Very good

    I think that it was level 3 (not 2) and it was very difficult. The Hotel Gasthof Neumayr, Obertrum is not appropriate to category A

    Beautiful spin in the Salzburg hills.

    Very happy with R+R patience and flexibility when we were making our booking. Rented bikes were in very good condition and well equipped with two panniers each. But sizing for the smaller (female) member was still large - perhaps make a smaller frame ...
