Via Rhona

Hi. I thought I might take a gentle ride down the new Via Rhône route from Geneva to the Med in March. It's always nice to have some company, if anyone is interested. Ím English, 58 and in no rush. Richard.

Hi Richard :-)

Hi Richard :-)

I’m currently looking at routes within Europe.

Which one is this Via Rhona you are talking about?

Where does it end and through which countries it passes?

I’m specially interested to know if it’s asphalt or dirt-roads type of route.

Thanks and safe travels!

Via Rhona

Sorry for the slow reply. For some reason the site didn't tell me there had been a response.

The Via Rhona is a new route running from Geneva down to the Med. https://en.viarhona.com/

The link wil give you the details. It looks a mix of road but mostly tarmac but I can't confirm as I don't know anyone who has done it.

Hi Richard,

Hi Richard,

I'll be heading to the mediterranean myself from Germany, I'll start this friday and will maybe reach Lyon by the 26th (subject to delays or bad judgement). While I don't think I'd want company for the whole length of the Rhone, I would be more than happy to meet up, share a bit of road together, have a coffee/wine/beer or have lunch! If we end up being in the same place at the same time. When were you thinking of going?

 

Regards,

Dominik

Where in the Med are you heading to?

Thanks for the link, Richard.

I’ll be starting from Germany too in a few weeks‘ time but I‘m receiving some Information about border crossing controls due to Coronavirus panic within EU ;-/

Keep us posted and power to the pedal, Dominik!

I'll follow the Via Rhona to

I'll follow the Via Rhona to Montpellier, and then I'm not sure where next, probably along the coast towards spain. (Heading towards italy was an option, but not with the country being shut down)

I'm starting from Aachen. Where in germany do you start?

I'll report!

Starting from Recklinghausen (near Dortmund)

And going all the way to Madrid :-)

Currently doing some mapping...the via Rohna looks very “urbanite” to me, the amount of time lost avoiding traffic and highways and road-rings/belts make it really less enjoyable for me on a bike — even though cities are where most of CS/WS hosts are based.

But that’s ok, I have my trusty Decathlon camping tent B-)
