RHINE CYCLE ROUTE FROM BINGEN TO REMAGEN
Length: 119 km
Altitude: 47 meters up, 79 meters down
The Rhine Cycle Route from Bingen to Remagen is expanded along its entire route as a separate bike path and very easily accessible directly on the Rhine, sometimes built-up areas on the river Rhine, sometimes as a separate bike path alongside the road.
On the right side of the Rhine between Koblenz Kaub and the cycling is still hampered by some shortcomings. Expanded until the entire right bank Rheinradweg is a good idea to bridge sections by boat or train.
