Der Rhein zwischen Koblenz und Bingen - Mit Kindern von Bonn nach Bingen
by Thomas Korten
Europe: Germany
language: de

Dass die Kinder mit dem Rad schon auf weiten Reisen waren, versteht sich von selbst. Aber dass sie ihr Rad dabei selbst bewegen müssen, ist neu. Von dieser allerersten mehrtägigen Tour mit eigenem Antrieb durch das ebenso einfach zu fahrende wie landschaftlich reizvolle Rheintal erzählt dieser Bericht.

Wir starten am späten Vormittag des Pfingstsamstags in Bonn. Das Wetter ist besser als die Vorhersage. Allein das Hochwasser am Rhein, das wir noch des öfteren auf dieser Tour durchfahren müssen, macht uns etwas Sorgen. Aber bis auf einige spektakuläre Flussdurchquerungen erleben wir keine Einschränkungen hinsichtlich der Reiseroute. Und das ist gut so, denn die Fahrt entlang der viel befahreren Bundesstraße 9 ist mit Kindern nicht gerade sehr angenehm.

Core Rider - Als Fahrradbotschafter unterwegs in Europa - Die North Sea Cycle Route Opening Tour, Northern Arc
by Peter Spiegel
Europe: Germany, Denmark, Norway, UK
language: de

Wenn Ihnen in Norwegen jemand auf Ihre Frage nach Steigungen mit ``mostly flat'' antwortet, seien Sie gewarnt: flach hat in Norwegen eine andere Bedeutung als in den Elbmarschen. ``Meistens flach'' bedeutet in Norwegen: Steigungen unter Hundert Meter. Chris Heymans, einer der Organisatoren und Planer der North Sea Cycle Route, fuhr übrigens einige norwegische Strecken, auch solche mit ``stiff Uphills'', mit seinem Brompton-Faltrad (natürlich mit Gepäck). Es ist eben alles relativ. Relativ ist, europaweit gesehen, auch die Qualität der Radwanderwege. Eine in Deutschland unglaublich miese Qualität bedeutet im restlichen Europa das Gegenteil.

Sie sollten also, wenn Sie eine längere Strecke auf der North Sea Cycle Route fahren wollen, Ihre Vorstellungen von ``gut'' und ``schlecht'' in ``anders'' wechseln. Erfreuen Sie sich an dem ständigen Wechsel der Landschaften. Lernen Sie immer wieder interessante Menschen kennen und genießen Sie das Flair der Dörfer und Städte rund um die Nordsee. ``Jeder Tag ist wie Weihnachten, jeden Tag eine Überraschung''. Dieser Slogan passt am besten zur Northern Opening Tour durch Schleswig-Holstein, Dänemark, Schweden, Norwegen und Schottland.

Königstour - Teil II
by Florian Michahelles, tour started 1995
Europe: Germany
language: de

Noch auf den Spuren von Bayernkonig Max II. Mountainbiken im Alleingang. [...] Mein heutiges Ziel soll das Brunnsteinhaus sein. Dazu muB ich uber den Elendsattel. Ich fahre allerdings nicht uber das Forsthaus Valepp an, sondern bewege mich durch den wundervollen Pfanngraben, die platschernden Wasserlaufe sind ein Augenweite. Ich lasse mich von diesem Schauspiel inspirieren, bis ich an dem Fahrweg uber den Elendsattel munde. Obwohl ich dieses Terrain schon mehrfach durchfahren habe, bin ich von den Felswanden, die sich links, bald rechts aufbauen, immernoch genauso fasziniert, wie vom funkelndem Wasser des Elendgrabens im Sonnenlicht.

You will learn about what to bring, how to pack, tips on touring and using the trains. The many interesting travelogues have insights into German culture and even a little history. If you cannot find a tour that fits your needs among the ones we describe (probably because we have not written one up yet) feel free to invent your own tour and tell us about it. The information presented here on this site is accurate but, where possible, I have injected humor. Travelogues can be boring but a little humor helps improve their readability.

A massive travel site, this guy has been everywhere.

Hier finden sich einige deutschsprachige Reiseberichte von Fahrradtouren, die hoffentlich unterhaltsam und informativ sind, aber auch vielleicht die eine oder andere Anregung für Leute geben, die selber einmal so etwas machen wollen. Für englischsprachige Radtourenberichte habe ich hier auch einen Anfang gemacht, ebenso für schwedischsprachige Radtourenberichte, wobei noch ein bißchen auf norwegisch und dänisch dabei ist, aber diese drei skaninavischen Sprachen sind so ähnlich, daß man entweder alle drei ein bißchen lesen kann oder eben keine davon.

Bicycles - World's Most Efficient Means of Transport
by Hostelio, , submitted 2 September 2009

Man on a bicycle can go three or four times faster than the pedestrian, but uses five times less energy in the process. He carries one gram of his weight over a kilometer of flat road at an expense of only 0.15 calories. The bicycle is the perfect transducer to match man's metabolic energy to the impedance of locomotion. Equipped with this tool, man outstrips the efficiency of not only all machines but all other animals as well. [...]

Bicycles are not only thermodynamically efficient, they are also cheap. With his much lower salary, the Chinese acquires his durable bicycle in a fraction of the working hours an American devotes to the purchase of his obsolescent car. The cost of public utilities needed to facilitate bicycle traffic versus the price of an infrastructure tailored to high speeds is proportionately even less than the price differential of the vehicles used in the two systems. In the bicycle system, engineered roads are necessary only at certain points of dense traffic, and people who live far from the surfaced path are not thereby automatically isolated as they would be if they depended on cars or trains. The bicycle has extended man's radius without shunting him onto roads he cannot walk. Where he cannot ride his bike, he can usually push it.

The bicycle also uses little space. Eighteen bikes can be parked in the place of one car, thirty of them can move along in the space devoured by a single automobile. It takes three lanes of a given size to move 40,000 people across a bridge in one hour by using automated trains, four to move them on buses, twelve to move them in their cars, and only two lanes for them to pedal across on bicycles. Of all these vehicles, only the bicycle really allows people to go from door to door without walking. The cyclist can reach new destinations of his choice without his tool creating new locations from which he is barred. [...]

The Twizi hostel directory - the cheapest places to stay on the planet
by Patrick Sexton, , submitted 6 January 2007

[The author travels around the world and reviews hostels, and has built up a large hostel directory.]

What are hostels?

The quickest answer I can give to you is that hostels are budget accommodations where you share a room with other travelers. To be more specific though and to give you a better idea of what to expect I will say that a hostel room is like a hotel room but instead of being just one bed there are a couple (or a few) bunk beds. There are also (gasp!) other people. People you do not know! These other people are travelers who are most likely very much like you in the sense that they are exploring and traveling and doing it as absolutely cheaply as possible. Hostels have been around a long long time. There are over 20,000 of them around the world. Hostels are very much a part of the culture of Europe, and are starting to be known in the USA as well. Hostels are a cheaper way of staying in a city where you do not live.
