Touring - Not about the bike, not about the training: I'm talking recon.
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.

I want to bike from South Italy (Naples area), almost straight north thorugh Switzerland, through Southwest Germany, and finaly end in Amsterdam in roughly ten weeks. There is a ton of information out there on how to pack, on what bikes to use, and secrets to training, but very little (it seems to me) on recon work. I want to know where I can find routes, how I can work on what roads I do (and do not) want to be on. That's the hardest part for me so far. If anybody has any tips on where to go, or where to look it would be a huge help. Thanks! Oh, and don't get me wrong, it's all great info, but this is just what I'm having a hard time finding.
I've got some tips that might be of help to you on our page, it's just the way we plan our routes and a few other things, check it out.

Ken Kifer wrote a good article on how to make inferences regarding routes from analyzing maps. Worth a read.
