Cycling Information
On this journey you cycle 209 km over five days (an average of 42 km per day) with further optional rides available. The rides mostly follow cycle paths or quiet secondary roads that run close to the lake. Occasional sections are unpaved and around Friedrichshafen the cycle path is alongside the main road. The terrain is generally flat with some inclines on the first two days of cycling. We have graded the route as easy.
Included Bike
24 gear hybrid bike.

Electric bikes (e-bikes) are available for an additional cost for the duration of the holiday (£95). You will be required to pay a refundable deposit upon collection of the e-bike in country. Please contact us for more details or to request your e-bike.
