Ever fantasize about taking a bike trip of a thousand miles or more, all on bike trails and quiet roads without any hills? Long-time CBC members Jeff & Louise Davis did just such a trip this past summer, following five rivers for 1,250 miles across Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium, and Holland.

In their talk, Jeff and Louise will show you their route along the Main, Rhine, Moselle, Meuse, and IJssel rivers, both the bike trails and roads, as well as the amazing scenery along the way. They'll also explain where to find information, including maps and English language guidebooks for cyclists, how to get bike-friendly lodging, how to find trains that take bikes (and their schedules), and much more. They'll share some pointers for travelers who don't speak the local language, what to expect in restaurants and grocery stores, and what kind of budget you might anticipate (on this non-camping trip the spent less than $90 p.p. per day).

They'll finish their presentation with handouts of helpful websites and a live demonstration of how to pack SUPER-light (they ride a tandem with only two panniers, a rack trunk, and a handlebar bag). Ready to plan an incredible bike trip of your own? Don't miss this informative presentation!
