Bike Touring Highlight
Karsten 27 and Martina 31 went for a bike ride.
August 22, 2020
It started well at 4 a.m. Thank goodness I was woken up by a herd of screaming youths🤪. Otherwise I would have tortured my sciatica even more on the much too soft mattress in the castle hotel. Shortly after driving off, I did a lap of honor around the Emslandstadion, as the signs were a bit chaotic. But then, as always, a wonderful, varied route. There were even ☕ & 🥧 on the way.
EmslandRoute conclusion:5 days, 300km, never boring, everything can be done well (except for an ascent in the forest) with a normal trekking bike.Schedule breaks, photo stops and visits, otherwise the stages will be too long. We had about half travel time, half stops. Seen a lot and traveled at a moderate pace.Among the hotels (booked by Emsland Touristik), the Krone in Spelle and the Aquamarin in Papenburg were particularly good. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐The placement of the cycle path signs, partially covered or similar, is in need of improvement.Overall, the route is highly recommended 👍
