Ohne Fehl und Tadel
Wie erwartet war die gesamte Strecke sehr angenehm befahrbar. Die Unterkünfte tadellos und das Personl überall sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Die Fahrräder konnten mühelos auf die individuellen Bedürnisse eingestellt werden und haben den Belastungen standgehalten. In der Saar und Mosel konnten wir wegen der "Algenplage" nicht baden. Wir empfehlen Ihnen, in Ihren Unterlagen darauf hinzuweisen.
