Riding a Brompton Along A Belgian Bike Path In Germany
Tuesday 12th November 2019
SPONSOR: Jenson USA
HOST: Carlton Reid
Vitali Vitaliev, author of "Passport to Enclavia", London.
Gilbert Perrin, technical lead, Chemins du Rail, Brussels.
TOPIC: Cycling along the 128-kilometre Vennbahn rail trail in Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg.
Part of the Vennbahn is a ten-metre-wide, 25-kilometre-long part of Belgium *inside* Germany. Bonkers!
I travelled to the trail by Brompton folding bike via the DFDS ferry at North Shields and then a series of trains to Aachen in Germany. An article about this journey will be in The Guardian soon.
Thanks to @Revchips for sending me a link about this very odd bike trail.
