Every year we spend several months cycling in Europe in the late summer and fall. When we first began this series of grand adventures, we were inspired by a book by Mike Lyon "Cycling Along Europe's Rivers". Each year we base in Haarlem, near Amsterdam, and set out on a quest to explore the best of Europe's great rivers. The first year we did the Rhine all the way to the Bodensee in Switzerland and the Mosel. The next year it was France's beautiful Mayenne and Loire Rivers. This year we are planning the Danube.
