the most pleasant surprise on our last cycle tour in Europe was
cycling along the Meuse river from Charleville in France to Dinant in
Belgium. We only wish that we had time to have done the whole river -
much more interesting than the Danube, although I don't know that
there are any organised tours. There is a cycle path along almost all
of the route that we did, and I believe that it has/will be extended
all the way to the North Sea. There was good food, good accommodation,
lots of history and culture too.
