thank you for posting that link .

mic , i will be travelling by bicycle from cologne to freiburg on the eurovelo route in october . do you have any experience or insight / info to pass on ?
Expect some fairly rainy weather, between 5 to 12 degrees celsius, or sunny and dry with near 20 celsius max….both is possible. The Rhine valley is usually a fair weather zone, and it gets better down South. Freiburg and the area north of it supposedly have the best weather in Germany.
How long do you plan on riding? I think a decent rider can do it in a few easy days.
DO you bring your gear, or do you rent a bike? Alone, or in a group? Alone would be easier for accomodation.
Some stretches were tight (i.e., no proper bike lane in a few places along the Rhine) in the past, do not know how it is at present. I guess with all the long-distance routes popping up in the last years it could have changed.
It seems as if a lot has changed for tourists on bikes, you can get lots of info in German and English on the net and in the local tourist information centers. And the route along the Rhine is one of the oldest in Europe.
Have you already booked accomodation? The schools have their fall-season break (two weeks, but depending on province) - and it could be a good idea to pre-book accomodation.
SICK! I have to definitely correct lots of tests. Damn. But a beer in Cologne should be ok.
