SOLD OUT

This tour starts and ends at two of Europe’s most romantic and vibrant capital cities.  In between those classic cities, you'll experience almost everything Europe has to offer, from historic castles and magnificent cathedrals to the charm of small villages and pastoral landscapes.  Your cycling will be just as varied.  We'll make use of car-free bike paths and canal paths, and blend that with country roads, vineyard lanes, historic village cobblestones, and modern city streets.

 

This exciting route begins at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, then heads east through France’s Champagne region, into Germany where we meet the Rhine River and the Black Forest region, through the heart of Germany including Rothenburg o.d.T. (often called the best preserved walled city) and Nürnberg, then into the Czech Republic, and finishing in the glorious City of Hundred Spires, Prague.
