Aug. 28 is one of the biggest bike- and hike-events nearby. The Deutsche Weinstrasse is blocked for standard traffic - only bicycles, inliners (maybe horse..) and hiking. on this about 50 miles of road you will be in company of about 200.000 to 300.000 other bikers (depending on the weather). Beside a realy nice landscape you will find a lot of events and local food - and of cause good wine in every little town and city on the way.
you can put your bike onto the train and go as well to Neustadt, Bad Durkheim or Landau - recommanded if you like to enjoy the wine as well.......
if you went - enjoy the event!
Thank you, diwil! This sounds like a lot of fun. And, great exercise.
