Bike the Sieg River

I live a bit outside of Bonn in Siegburg. There is a very nice bike path that winds along the Sieg river which I have done a large portion of on a previous ride. It would be fun to take along a few people.

More info on the bikeway (auf Deutsch): http://naturregion-sieg.stadt-hennef.de/radweg-sieg/

Though the bike path goes all the way to Bonn, the section between Siegburg and Bonn isn't as interesting, so I recommend starting in Siegburg and riding 15-20 km out to one of the DB stations along the way and taking the train back.

Once we have a couple interested people, I'll set a date. I would like to keep the number of people on this ride to a max of 10, as it will be my first time hosting a ride.

________

Update

For those of you who would like to load the info into your phone/GPS, etc., I've created a map of the planned ride here:

http://goo.gl/maps/lYxRK

We'll plan on riding from Siegburg to Blankenberg--so between the two blue pins on the map--and take the train back from there. Those who are interested in riding further, depending on the weather/pace, I may very well do so myself, so keep it in mind!

 

Things to Bring

-Bike

-Water

-Snacks (We can get lunch in Blankenberg, I believe, but brown bagging it is fine as well)

-About 6EUR for the train (2.70 EUR per person plus 2.70 EUR per bike)

 

Where to Meet

I'll be the one with a yellow bike waiting by the end point of the 66 train (lowest floor in the Bahnhof). Please be on-time.

    Ryssa and I are planning to swim in the Sieg during the Bike ride tomorrow. So if you want to join us bring your swimsuit and a towel.

    Since I have about 14 people on the list, I would like one volunteer to be responsible for a portion of the group. Usually when I have done these type of rides, you have one person who makes sure that no-one gets left behind and another who is leading from the front. If the group becomes too much larger, then I'll ask for someone else to be in the middle...

    I'll make sure the volunteer has a map with a outline of where we are headed. So, any hands up from the group?

    July 25, 2013

    • Jo

      Sure

      July 26, 2013

    • Amanda B.

      Thanks, Jo! I'll let you know the plan as I get everything together.

  • Amanda B.

    I've changed this to August 4th. If there is anyone who would like to do a ride on the 28th, post an idea! I try to get out and do 20km+ at least one day on the weekend and would love some other ideas!

    I Can make first Sunday in August

    July 17, 2013

  • Duncan

    I am away that weekend as well...but maybe enough of the others are there...(10th/11th would work for me)

    July 17, 2013

  • Amanda B.

    Okay--since we have 4 people who aren't available on the current date, I'll move it to the first Sunday in August. Does that work for all those below that aren't able to make it on the 28th? Does it cause others to not be available?

    July 17, 2013

  • Amanda B.

    I just put in Sunday, July 28th as a date. Does this work for all/most of those interested?

    July 16, 2013

    • Famil

      Unfortunately not...maybe next weekend after 28th?
