Riding a Brompton Along A Belgian Bike Path In Germany

Tuesday 12th November 2019


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.
