Itinerary

Day 1Vienna
Welcome to Vienna! Your cycling adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6pm. Arrive at any time during the day as there are no activities planned until this important meeting. Please confirm with the hotel reception where and when it will take place, or check the reception noticeboards. If you're going to be late, please inform the hotel reception. We'll be collecting your insurance details and next of kin information at this meeting, so please ensure you have all these details to provide to your leader. If arriving early make sure you go for a walk around this beautiful city. Perhaps even take a spin on the famous old Prater Ferris Wheel. Following the group meeting, maybe head out for an optional welcome dinner at a Viennese Heurigen (wine tavern). Heuriger means "this year's wine", and the Heurigen originated as a way for winemakers to offer samples of their new wine with a few snacks. Fortunately this now also includes a hearty meal, which will be much needed for the days of cycling ahead. Please note that many shops, including bicycle shops close at midday on Saturday, and all of Sunday so it is difficult to purchase a bike helmet before the cycling begins on Day 2 - please bring your own helmet with you. Cycle distance: none
Day 2Vienna
After breakfast there will be a bike fitting for the group followed by a short test ride. Then take a tour of Vienna by bike (approximately 3 hours). Follow the path of the Habsburg and explore the rich artistic and cultural icons like the Gothic St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Hofburg Palace and all that the Ringstrasse has to offer. Cycle distance: approx. 10kms/6 miles, mostly flat with approx. 180m/590ft of elevation gain.
Day 3Bratislava
Leave Vienna’s city centre and ride along the mighty Danube to the tiny hamlet of Hasslau an der Donau. From here, journey east along the riverbanks to one of Austria's most important archaeological sites, Carnuntum, and its eclectic mixture of Roman ruins and modern reconstructions. Spend some time wandering among the remains of Roman life on the Danube before climbing back onto your bike and slowly winding along the riverside bike paths to the Slovak border. In the afternoon arrive in the Slovak capital, the cosmopolitan Bratislava. See firsthand how bordering two independent countries has left its mark on Bratislava with an introductory walk. Please note that the Bratislava Castle is closed on a Monday so we are unable to enter it. Cycle distance: approx. 76kms/47 miles, flat for the first 40kms, then undulating, with approx. 400m/1310ft of elevation gain.
Day 4Hedervar/Lipot
Follow the Danube as it turns south and re-enters Hungary. Pass by picturesque villages, lowland forests and across lush farmland to the tiny village of Hedervar, home of the charming 13th century Renaissance and Baroque style Héderváry Castle. Afterwards it's only a short five kilometre ride to the tiny village of Lipot. While the village is certainly quiet, it has a laidback atmosphere that makes for a perfect end to a day in the saddle. Cycle distance: approx. 63kms/39 miles, slightly downhill with approx. 130m/430ft of elevation gain.
Day 5Komarom
Leaving the quiet ambience of Hedervar behind, cycle most of today on paths free of traffic. Stop to visit the Baroque city of Győr for a quick tour, including a visit to Káptalan Hill, Bécsi kapu tér square, and the picturesque Király Street. Afterwards, track back to the banks of the Danube and on to the city of Komarom, which straddles the borders of Hungary and Slovakia. While Komarom is known for its forts and strategic position on the Danube River, it is also a beautiful city housing many museums and historical sites. Take part in an introductory walk with a stroll across the Elizabeth Bridge, the pathway between two counties. To add some pampering at the end of a long day why not try an optional spa visit to soothe those leg muscles. Cycle distance: approx. 80 kms/50 miles, flat with approx. 210m/690ft of elevation gain.
Day 6Esztergom
Today there is an early departure to ensure a timely arrival into Esztergom (approximately 55 kilometres). The former capital city of Hungary, Esztergom is the seat of the Hungarian Catholic Church and boasts an amazing array of architectural gems such as Royal Palace, the Víziváros, and Watertown, which is built on the banks of the Danube itself. The crowning glory of Esztergom is undoubtbly the Esztergom Basilica, a stunning example of Classicism and the third largest church in Europe. Reflected in the still waters of the Danube Bend, the Basilica is a sight to behold from outside and within. Take part on an introductory orientation walk of this beguiling city. Cycle distance: approx. 54kms/33miles, flat with approx. 140m/460ft of elevation gain.
Day 7Budapest
Cycle the famous ‘Danube Bend’ beneath the wooded hills of Visegrád. Here the river turns south towards the Hungarian capital city of Budapest. Today is our longest day in the saddle but be sure to enjoy a stop half way for a picnic lunch on the river bank. To help end the day on a high, an afternoon visit to one of Budapest's famous spas is included. There is ample free time in the evening to explore at your leisure. Cycle distance: approx. 93kms/58miles, mostly flat with approx. 590m/1935ft of elevation gain.
Day 8Budapest
The final day starts with an early morning city cycling tour in Budapest (approximately 3 hours) that takes in the best that this remarkable city has to offer, including a visit to the food market. Return to the hotel with ample time to shower and say goodbye to your newfound friends. If you want to spend some extra time in Budapest or require a later checkout, we strongly recommend booking extra accommodation at the time of booking. Cycle distance: approx. 15 kms As we spend the morning riding it is not recommended to book a flight out of Budapest before 5pm.

Meeting Point

  • Magdas Hotel, Viena.
  • Magdas hotel is conveniently located near Prater amusement park in Vienna.
  • The modern hotel prides itself on its eclectic up-cycled decor and it is filled with art. The hotel celebrates diversity and provides training and employment for refugees in Austria.
  • Wi-Fi is available.

Ending Point

  • Atlas City Hotel, Budapest, Hungary
  • Atlas City Hotel offers comfortable rooms with air-conditioning, Wi-Fi and private bathrooms.
  • Many of the city's attractions are within walking distance. Metro station is just 170 metres away.

Route & Physical Condition

  • To complete this trip it is important that you are both confident and competent in riding a bicycle.
  • While the cycling distances are relatively long – sometimes up to 75 kilometres – the terrain of the Danube as it flows downstream is naturally flat so you’ll only need a reasonable level of fitness to enjoy the trip.
  • But remember, we will always have the support vehicle on hand if you need to take a break for an hour or a day.
  • As our riding is done mostly on sealed roads and bike paths with the occasional gravel section there are no technical cycling skills required.
  • There’s the possibility of a few hiccups along the way – a puncture here and there maybe – but there’s no doubt this is an incredibly rewarding adventure. As there are potholes and cobblestones in many European cities, it's recommended that you leave any wheelie bags/cases at home and bring a backpack instead.

Packing

  • On this trip you must pack as lightly as possible because you will be expected to carry your own bag and although you won't be required to walk long distances with your luggage (max 30 minutes), we strongly recommend keeping the weight under 10kg / 22lb.
  • Most travellers carry their luggage in a backpack, although an overnight bag with a shoulder strap would suffice if you travel lightly.
  • Smaller bags or backpacks with wheels are convenient although we recommend your bag has carry straps to accommodate the cobbled streets, uneven surfaces, stairs and steps you are lightly to encounter while carrying your luggage.
  • You'll also need a day pack/bag to carry water and a camera etc for day trips.

  • The aim of the group leader is to take the hassle out of your travels and to help you have the best trip possible.
  • We provide the services of an experienced leader however, due to the seasonality of travel, rare situations may arise where your leader is new to a particular region or training other group leaders.
  • Each of our leaders has undergone on-road training and supervision and knows how to do safety checks, basic repairs and emergency first-aid.
  • At the end of the day they’re still regular leaders, which means they will provide information on the places you are travelling through, offer suggestions for things to do and see, recommend great local eating venues and introduce you to our local friends.
  • While not being guides in the traditional sense you can expect them to have a broad general knowledge of the places visited on the trip, including historical, cultural, religious and social aspects.
  • We aim to support local guides who have specialised knowledge of the regions we visit.
  • If you were interested in delving deeper into the local culture at a specific site or location then your leader can recommend a local guide service in most of the main destinations of your trip.

  • HELMETS: Helmets are compulsory and we do not allow anyone to ride without one (including our own staff!).
  • You can bring your own, or purchase one that meets international safety standards on the ground. Your leader can assist with this.
  • FOOTWEAR For safety reasons we strongly recommend that you wear shoes that cover the toes while riding.
  • SUPPORT VEHICLES We usually have a support vehicle following us if first-aid is ever necessary or people are feeling too tired to ride.
  • BIKES: Our bikes are serviced regularly, and we get them checked by experts before each and every trip. Should you choose to bring your own please note that while we are happy to assist where we can with repairs you are responsible for the safety and suitability of your own equipment.
  • TRAFFIC AND DRIVING ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE ROAD: Depending on where you come from please note that drivers in this part of the world may drive on the opposite side of the road from what you are used to. Look both ways before crossing any road. Traffic can be a little more chaotic than you might be used to at home. Be aware! There are times when traffic conditions make sections of our planned riding route unsafe – in this instance we will use the support vehicle.
  • WEATHER Due to inclement weather posing a serious health or safety issue there may be times when we use the support vehicle instead of doing the planned ride. We will endeavour to reroute if possible but at times may have to cancel the planned ride.
