Rhein/Mosel Tour 2006

Hi there,
This is my first visit to this set of Bike Forums. But I shall not be very active in the short term because on Saturday 20 May I am travelling by European Bike Express ( a bus + a bike trailer) to Mulhouse in Alsace just North of Basel in Switzerland.

From there I am cycle camping my way down the river Rhein to Koblenz and then up the Mosel to Metz in France before returning back down the Mosel to Koblenz and then on down the Rhein all the way to Rotterdam. From Rotterdam I take a ferry back to Hull in England on the evening of 22 June. You will find details of my planned schedule on my website -- but my previous experience of long tours tells me that by about day 5 of my trip I shall be making changes of timings and of my routes! I plan on celebrating my 69th birthday in Trier on the Mosel on 8 June!

I look forward to enjoying "Bike Forums" on a regular basis. Perhaps I may post on here during my tour -- I shall see!

Wow. What a great trip. I love Mulhouse. I used to take the train down to Müllheim on the German side and bike over to Mulhouse every year to go the French Automobile Museum; hundreds of Bugattis, prewar Benz's and other beauties. Two Bugatti Royales (only seven in the world). Try to stop there it is worth the time. The Mosel is especially beautiful around Cochem and Bernkastel-Keus. Plan on spending some time walking around the latter town. The Rhein is a nice ride down from Koblenz (picture of me on a bike ride along the Rheinwith a bit of face alteration) but the Moselle is outstanding. Take some time to take a tour of the Rotterdam port, too. Very interesting.
