Overnattings forslag

Below is a list of the places I stayed. (On average, the cost was 30-40E a night for the pensions, 20-25E for the hostels.) There are many more B&B's/pensions along the route (especially in Germany) than the web indicates, and all of them seemed to have free rooms. In my experience, you could go without booking ahead. In addition to B&B's, the map of the route also shows all camping grounds. I think someone commented that camping sites are few and far between. That's true, but there are just enough so that I think you could, with a little bit of foresight, camp all the way.

Bike & Equipment

Thursday June 7, 2012

I took a Brompton M6 and the T-Bag pannier. There were a number of reasons for this. The previous summer I had taken a Surly Long Haul Trucker to Norway, which was great, but it's such a huge hassle to pack the bike into a cardboard bike box, and my heart was always in my mouth as to whether it would be damaged by the airline. I love touring, and I wanted to work out a way in which I could fly without this fear, and also fly from place to place without taking an hour or two to put the bike together again or take it apart. To not go through this rigmarole could mean that I would be able to do shorter tours like this one. I looked into Bike Fridays-and if I were doing a 'proper' tour which had hills in it, I'd definitely buy one of theirs-but the Brompton, with its quick fold mechanism and size is very useful for living in New York City and the daily commute to an office which does not allow bikes (but does not seem to recognize folded bikes in black bags). So I bought the Brompton and a hard traveling case from B&W International. I checked toiletries in the case-it came in at 24.6kg-and took the T-Bag as carry-on. The TSA opened the case, but they had the sense to put the bike back the right way. The hostel I stayed at in Berlin was willing to keep the case for me while I cycled. (DHL wanted to charge me 300E for shipping it to Copenhagen.) The bike performed very well, but there was a worrying clicking noise in the pedal the last 20km. The saddle was terrible-I had to purchase a gel pad to be able to bear it.

The Brompton was a plucky little thing. For those little wheels, she performed admirably well. Would I take her again? Yes, but with a comfier saddle and more days to ride the same distance. There were days that felt too rushed. The headwind also didn't help things.

You need to buy Radfernweg Berlin-Kopenhagen by Bikeline (http://www.esterbauer.com/db_rtb_detail.php?buecher_code=BKH) You'll see from my comments about the condition of the trail that the map is essential.
