Lovely cycling tour
I would highly recommend this cycling tour which is rather flat. It crosses beautiful landscapes and it was very peaceful! One of the most peaceful tour I did in the last 14 years. However you need to follow the path using the GPX file on your smartphone because it is not easy to follow the marking on the roads. Also despite it is flat, each trekking is rather long : 65-70km per day!! So this is quite tiring and not much time to relax and visit.
