Bike Touring Highlight
The paths are only partially paved, mostly mostly gravel. It is therefore often very dusty in summer. Within the urban area it is a good opportunity to cycle relatively quickly off the streets. With a pure city bike, however, the pleasure is somewhat clouded due to the many long gravel phases. There is a lot of traffic, especially in urban areas, on summer weekends. Outside it is much quieter.

In the sections near the city (List / Vahrenwalde) the gravel is quite fine or it is partly paved, so it is very easy to drive. The bike got dusty, but not a problem for breathing. In the sections Bothfeld, Buchholz, Misburg the route is much worse and it becomes quite strenuous to drive. Not universally suitable for racing bikes.

You should leave the church in the village! Such comments as e.g. "only partially asphalted", "mostly gravel", "very often dusty", "many long gravel phases" are all 'fly in the ointment'. It's a good thing that the beautiful riverside cycle path is not suitable for racing cyclists, then I wouldn't be able to enjoy it anymore. The well-paved path along the bank was a gift from the Expo as part of the canal widening at the turn of the millennium. All bridges were finished on time. Those who used to want to cycle along the canal either couldn't get through at all or had to take a beaten path. So thank you for this wonderful bike route !!
