Start 8 a.m. Tour with Mario. We ride the Aartal-Loreley cycle path to St. Goarshausen. The tour is flat as far as Hahnstätten. Then the slopes begin. The tour runs up and down to the Rhine. Highlights: -Burg Ardeck in the Aartal, -old city wall in Oberneisen, - quarry and old windmill at Katzenelnbogen, - Schinderhannes birthplace in Miehlen, - thick oak (age: 400-450 yrs) in Endlichhofen, -10km continuous descent on a tarred bike path from Bogl to St. Goarshausen. Arrived at the Rhine we take the ferry to the other side. The cycle path on the Rhine to Koblenz is flat. Numerous castles on the other side of the Rhine are in our focus. After 101.7km we have reached the train station in Koblenz. But the day still has one surprise left for us. It shouldn't have been the last km for today 😉 (see report 2nd day tour)
Nice tour, nice pictures. I drove it last year. Ardeck Castle is in the Aartal near Holzheim, right?

Right. Aardeck Castle is near Holzheim in the Aartal.
Yes, that's right. In the beginning we cycled the Aartal from Diez to Hahnstätten 👍
Respect, very nice tour !!! And without E 👌🏻🚵♀️👌🏻! But the end is a bit of a horror movie! There you can see what is still going on 😱🤪👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻
Horror, yeah But we didn't take it. The weather was good and the first 100km we drove moderately with many small breaks, so that we still had reserves. Which was very beneficial to us in the end
