Review of the bike tour

A very sunny and stable fall weather made us decide to do this tour
The trail is only 111 kilometers.
The interesting part is that one rides on former railroad tracks.
The are in perfect condition (asphalt) and very good marked (except at Waidhofen an der Thaya).
I have scanned in the road map to provide interested bicyclists sufficient information.

We just spent one day. Reason: Easy to Czech per train form Vienna and the, sorry to say, the Czech part of this trail is not interesting, nor have infrastructure, we expect.

On the most Northern part of the trail, we have been riding the "Iron Curtain Trail".  not really interesting, just a good sounding name and steep climbs.

Most interesting the ride to Waidhofen an der Thaya (route South) and up to Waldkirchen and on the return the city of Raabs an der Thaya.
We have been riding the tour clockwise, starting at Göpfritz an der Wild.

If you need more information please call the tourist-information at Zwettl / Lower Austria (phone +43 2822 54109)
They will send you the map and a leaflet with sightseeing information and list of accommodations.

hope you enjoy the picture report.
Good luck to our followers.
