Hello, who has time and motivation to loose as much weight as possible on a cycling tour Frankfurt/ Main to Paris, maybe further on to Mount St Michelle aso.

Looking for Cycling Buddies, male/ female, aged 50+.Moderate speed on tour, daily distances 60 to 80 km, depending on road conditions.

Start: immediately, so that by early June some 10 kg weight are gone.

No extra luggage transport, so take only the most relevant things.
Accommodation is booked on tour, from Hostels (Bunks) to *****-Hotel, depending on availability.

Staying in hotels will not make it easy to loose weight. Loosing 10 kg over such a short time with 60-80 km a day only will be tough in any case. It at least would require some discipline when it comes to food wink. When I am on tour for 3 weeks with more than 130 km per day and many height meters to climb every day, then I manage to loose approx. 3 kg, i.e. 1 kg per week. However, I am not keeping a diet during this time.
Gruß, Arnulf

Loosing weight in such flat tours worked for us when we started to camp. One night we cooked and one night we went for a dinner. Then we lost about 1.5 kg/week.
Cycling is an addiction, it can drive you quite insane. It can rule your life as truly as strong whiskey and cocaine.

Hello Karin,
Did you take this bicycle tour?
The reason I ask is that I would like to take a similar trip and wonder if I could ask you questions about rout and accomodations.
