Itinerary 2015

ITINERARY:

As all cyclists are different in their skills, we made the experience, that it is better to offer customized tours for your individual needs rather than offering a certain itinerary. We will work out your customized offer if you provide us with some details such as mileage you want to cycle per day, how many people, which part of the Romantic Road you want to visit, how many days you have available etc.! 

ACCOMMODATION:

Accommodation is booked at local, typical tourist & tourist superior hotels and inns, which offer all necessary amenities for cyclists. Daily breakfast is always included. 

LUGGAGE TRANSPORTATION:

Your luggage will be transferred from destination to destination. Please make sure that you store it at the reception latest by 10:00 am. The final pick up time depends on the number of hotels our supplier has to deliver, but we guarantee that you luggage will be at your hotel latest by 5:00 pm.!

BICYCLES:

For those of you who cannot use their own bicycles, we offer bike rental. The rental bikes are street worthy all terrain bikes with seven gear transmission, lights & baggage holder. Please do not forget to bring your helmet, as they are mandatory in Germany and cannot be rented for hygienic reason. Please note that if the starting & ending point is not the same, we may have to charge an extra day for the transportation of the bike back to the starting point. 

TRANSPORTATION:

In case starting & ending point of your cycling tour is not the same, we offer the possibility (from May until mid October) to bring you and the bikes back to the starting point with our regular coach along the Romantic Road, which offers also the capacity for bicycle transportation.
