You could very easily spend a long time exploring the winding streets of Prague and Berlin but then you’d miss out on the glorious countryside. The idyllic bike paths snaking through the ancient pine forests. The opulent Prussian palaces and delightful Czech villages. The vineyards and delicious local produce. The welcoming people, picturesque town centers and vibrant beer halls.

Germans are not only known for their passion for beer, but also for bikes. And that love of bikes has created an amazing labyrinth of bike paths and routes that extend throughout the country. Many of the paths used on this trip are the equivalent of scenic byways, linking quaint villages and big cities alike. While you are on bike paths in larger cities, be prepared for the occasional rush of local riders as they commute and run errands. These wonderful bike paths are refreshingly car-free, which means that there are stretches of limited van support, although you'll still be supported by leaders on bikes. Although most of the paths are smooth and paved, there are some sections of interlocking bricks, gravel, cobblestone and hard-packed dirt that can be muddy during downpours.

There is so much to explore, but a week on an e-bike tour is a good place to start. Easygoing daily routes are typically 2-4 hours of biking per day, approximately 10-30 miles (16-48km) and vary from level to rolling with a few steeper climbs. The custom e-bikes allow you to pedal effortlessly or if you prefer to pedal without power then regular road bikes are available by request.

This dedicated electronic-assist bike tour makes adventuring by bike a breeze! Perfect for beginners, occasional bikers, or anyone who is interested in exploring the world by bike. If you'd rather not use an e-bike then regular bikes are also available on this tour (touring and road bikes).
