Iron Curtain trail

Hi


Have you ridden the Iron Curtain Eurovélo trail? Specifically the section from Hamburg to Bratislava?

That's what we plan to ride next year and I'd love to hear of tips and experiences.

happy days

Hi,

That sounds like an interesting ride. I have nothing very specific to say, but Janos and I cycled along the Czech-Bavarian border in Ocotober, some of it was certainly the Eurovelo 13 although we weren't following the route intentionally. The roads through the Bohemian Forest and the Bavariarian Forest were generally excellent and we were enthusiastic about the countryside. Some vestiges from the Iron Curtain remain, fascinating... Just have a look at my most recent journal.

I just had a closer look at the map and saw that we were often riding parallel to the EV13 on good roads with little traffic while the EV13 was on forest trails. Good to keep in mind unless you relish unsealed surfaces.

Just one more comment from me. This trail should be of special interest to you with your recently acquired Masters in History. Congratulations! I am so impressed.
