Hi (and apologies this is only in English)

Please can you advise me with some route planning. In a weeks I fly with bike, tent, stove and friend to Prague. We know we'll take the Elbe route to Dresden (2 or perhaps elongate it with a detour for 3 days). Because of our limited time we plan to take the train from Dresden to Nurnberg ( a Quer-durchs-Land-Ticket)

We fly back from Geneva airport 8 or 9 days after getting in to Nurnberg. I have paper maps and am looking for advice on routes from Nurnberg to Geneva, and we want to include some cycling in the Black Forest. And come trains if needed!
We are on a tourer and a hybrid bike - loaded with our stuff - so a good surface is appreciated. We are reasonably fit, looking to cycle 80km or some more a day, we'll be carrying all our stuff and so look to camp or wildcamp. Cities aren't what we are here to do with bikes, so we have little interest in staying in Nurnberg or even incorporating Stuttgart or Geneva.

From this site, I have found http://www.radreise-wiki.de/Stuttgart_-_N%C3%BCrnberg_(retour) which looks good, but we could avoid Stuttgart - would any one suggest a route through the Blackforest? This http://radreise-wiki.de/Schwarzwald-Radweg would cover the highlights of the area, but is not suitable for our bikes! 80-110kms a day.

Previously I have used google street view to plan routes, and this site has been very useful with routes (and altitudes!). Thank you.

danke sehr

Meg and Sophie

Hello,

8 days are little time.

From Nürnberg I would recommend the following route:



Consider of doing parts of the route by train.

Have fun,
Jürgen.

Hello,

wouldn't the http://radreise-wiki.de/Paneuropa-Radweg be the perfect connection between Nürnberg and Schwarzwald?

Glad, you like it.

In our wiki we have a tool that connects all the sub-routes into one:

http://radreise-wiki.de/Radreise-Wiki:Routenplaner

Unfortunately it needs a little effort to make the connection point list.

Besides that: The Paneuropa Radweg is a mess - at least in my region (Nürnberg). So I would not really recommend it (sorry edo).

Cheers,
Jürgen.

I know my post is totally useless as advice, because their trip was a long time ago. But I just want to say, I totally agree with Jürgen. So compliments to him. The reason I´m responding is because of my Black Forest ruits.

So I figured I´d use this topic as a first post as I didn´t find a thread to introduce myself. Hope to exchange great ideas and experiences about cycling with you all!

Cheers,

Johan
