Cycling & Pleasure Cycling

Broaden your horizons - be with yourself

Be active and see something of the country at the same time. Cycle along quietly rippling waterways - instead of noisy traffic arteries - and enjoy the kilometres you travel across. Cycling is both deeply meditative and horizon-expanding - pedalling continuously at your own pace and getting to know the country and its people, culture and cuisine. Crossing borders and finding yourself a little bit more. This is exactly how pleasure cycling feels, and it is not without reason that it is becoming increasingly popular. You set the pace yourself, stop wherever you like and take your time - that's freedom on two wheels!
