Vienna to Prague Tour 

Glide serenely amid rolling pine-clad hills and fields adorned with carp ponds, beer hops growing on racks, and brilliant yellow fields of rape. This unindustrialised region has few tourists. You cycle a picturesque countryside alongside streams and lakes, through forests and past storybook castles and palaces. There are good wines from ancient hill towns and complex beers that give Germany and Belgium a run for their Euros.
