The tour will start in Rosenheim end of June and finish in Rosenheim exactly 21 days later.
Daily legs will cover about 200 km, sometimes more, often times less, depending on terrain and availability of accommodation. The route shown below is a rough sketch; this will not be the final route! As shown, the distance is about 3.300 km – the ride itself may have up to 4.000 km, depending on which extra loops and places will be added.

This page has the structure of the ride. All days will be planned in greater detail, and destinations will be fixed, campgrounds will be identified, reservations will be made in the spring of 2020. On each of the daily sections in the schedule column of this page there will be a .gpx-file with the track for the day, sometimes with one or two extra files for alternative route options All tracks will be uploaded on
Registered Riders: No need to download these one by one now. You can look at them in detail but do not download! Tracks may still change and you may then not have the most recent version.
You will receive a set of tracks for the entire tour by email – these tracks will have been checked once more and supplemented with information about rest stops etc.

Once you find them interactive (look for the underlined), click on the days to get mre information about each day. Step by step, the detailed info for each day will be completed.

The route will lead south for two weeks, and head back north for the third. At the end of week one we should have reached Rome, crossing the Alps, the Po river valley, the Apennine Mountains, Tuscany and more. 

The second week will take us further south and across the Abruzzi apennines, heading for Messina, Sicily. Along the north coast we will reach Palermo by the end of week 2.

The third week will see the tour heading north, first by ferry to Genoa, then up to Lake Como and into the Swiss Alps. From there we will cross over to the upper Inn valley and follow the river downstream before turning off again for some more climbing and scenic northern Alps countryside. As scheduled we will be back at Rosenheim on the Staruday of week 3 at 3 pm.

We will have a support van riding behind the tour as a back-up in case of accident, illness or a serious mechanical problem, which does not allow the rider to continue the ride for the day. The van will be able to store 4-5 velomobiles. Please note that this is back-up and should only be used in case of real need.

The support van will also be able to transport our luggage, except for all items riders will need outside of camp! However, all riders should calculate and pack their belongings in such a way that they could be carried along within the velomobiles. For transport in the van, riders should pack their items in one larger duffel bag (Seesack) – this will make loading (done by riders leaving the campground last) and unloading (done by riders arriving at the campground first) much easier.

All accommodations will be on campgrounds. The description of each day has information on the campground, its facilities and services, resp. a link to the website. Reservations will be made for the group; please do not make individual reservations.
