Rhine routes

I am interested in finding out if a bike route runs along the entire route of the Rhine river through the Netherlands. I also anticipate riding as far as Frankfurt along the Rhine so any addtional information would be appreciated. Cheers!

Frankfurt to Mainz - There is a bicycle trail from Frankfurt to Mainz along the Main River where it connects to the Rhine.

Mainz - Cologne - There is a trail all along this route.

Cannot speak for territory beyond these end points. Have a ball.

I live in Frabkfurt and have ridden the entire Rhine. Bike route runs the whole way, and it's great!

I should update. I have ridden the length of the Rhine from The Atlantic to Switzerland, which is 95% beautiful. As I live in Frankfurt, I have also ridden the length of the Main, which is 100% beautiful. Near the beginning of the Main, the Main-Donau Kanal will lead you to the Danube, and from there it is one long bike path to the Black Sea.

So, it is one long, nice, bike path from Rotterdam on the Atlantic to the Black Sea.
