Cycling Information
On this trip we cycle 333 km over seven days (an average of 48 km per day). The path runs on traffic-free asphalt cycle paths (95%) and gravel tracks (5%) beside the Danube and is almost completely flat. A support vehicle carries our luggage from point to point throughout but cannot escort the rides along the cycle paths. We have graded the route as easy.
Included Bike

Electric bikes (e-bikes) are available for an additional cost for the duration of the holiday (£110). You will be required to pay a refundable deposit upon collection of the e-bike in country. Please contact us for more details or to request your e-bike.
