Swap your two-wheeler for a 4- or 6-wheeler on your cycling holiday to try out a hand-operated trolley along the German Wine Route. Your family holiday on rails will get under way on four or six wheels.

But you've really got to see who and what actually rides these folding bikes. Every year the promoters come up with quirky taglines for the competition and encourage the participants to turn up in the wackiest costumes and get-ups! A memorable experience! ... read more
