  • Do not underestimate how tedious it is to ride a flat riverside path for hours on end.

    Did 100km of it in Germany along the Rhine. With the tree roots pushing the tarmac up it was like being kicked in the arse and nuts for 3-4 hours. Would have been fun for a gentle pootle, a rush to catch a train wasn't quite as fun.

  • What on earth are you doing in Arlon?

  • Haha! My knee exploded last year so I'm picking up where I left off.

    And yeah, German tree roots wtf

  • I reckon your route from Arlon to the German border could be an improved for more fun riding so I’ll have a look later.

    When you doing it?

  • Lovely, thank you. Quick look at OSM Cycle suggests I can route it onto some little lanes and dirt roads. I've been editing this route here; it must go to the Baumwipfelpfad Saarschleife.

    Maybe May but weddings/ stags confusing my plans.


    Moved here recently, finally worked out the route after a few weeks. Can do it at a nice pace, no hairy junctions so can also be done after a few beers. Any deviations / suggestions welcome. In the mornings I like to go down to deptford and pick up the Q1 on the high street but I always come home this way.

    TLDR - Hither Green - Peckham Rye - Surrey Canal Walk - Q1 from Crol coffee onwards to central

    And via Deptford - busier, but feels quicker (less hills)

  • Lewisham Way northbound isn't too bad. Link it to Q1 with Clifton Rise and Woodpecker Road

  • I've not ridden any further than Borg in Germany on this route but...

    Routed it through the city and into the river valley as there's a bike/walking road there and a lot of the areas in the city and around it are under a LOT of construction so it can be hard to navigate, dangerous or both. Don't get me wrong, not London-dangerous but enough that it's not worth riding in some places.

  • Amazing, thanks so much. I stayed in Mersch for four nights last May, and found a wonderful route to Luxembourg City and back. Lovely place to ride a bike

  • Awesome. I live not far from the bike path along the valley so in one direction or the other it's the start or the end of nearly every ride from home. There's some really great "gravel" riding on the hills above and some great climbs out of that valley.

    Let me know when you figure out a date and if you're up for company I'll come and ride some of it with you!
