This comprehensive cycle touring guidebook offers a detailed stage-by-stage description of the epic 856 mile (1380km) journey along the Rhine Cycle Route from Switzerland to the North Sea on Eurovelo Route 15.
Taking you on 27 stages through six countries; Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria, Germany, France and Holland, the route passes the remains of Roman cities, medieval towns, castles, cathedrals, palaces, great cities of the industrial revolution and relics of 20th-century warfare.
This guide offers practical information and overview maps for each stage, along with information on traveling to and from the Rhine with your bike, accommodation, and preparation before you go.
The trail itself is easy, as much of the route is downhill - the perks of following a river from source to sea. As all the countries are very cycle-friendly, you will find a good quality of waymarking, and that the dedicated cycle paths are well maintained. So, if you are new to cycle touring, this is a very good route to begin with as fit cyclists should be able to complete the route in two weeks.
Includes access to free GPX files of the routes.
