I am interested in anything similiar, if I can get holiday and it will be not raining all day.
The most beautiful is  certainly  South Tyrolia, Austria,Switzerland, Germany, Luxemburg not by last because of the road quality.

About myself:
I make along with luggage at most 20 km/h averagely, daily 80-100-150-200 km, at least two years ago I could at the age of 63.
Climbing passes  I climb   450-500 m level difference in the first hour, later less.
In the age of 64 I became slower, but the distance I can still  manage, just slower.
If we are more cyclist together I can be certainly faster.
During a tour all language problems I can solve in German in English.
However I speak a bit Polish,Romanian, Russian, Italian,too.

Contact for bike tours, bicycle tour ideas f.e. Alps, bicycle tour in Germany,South-Italy, Luxembourg, Greece etc.
