Award-winning author Steven Herrick journeys across Central Europe from Basel to Budapest on a bicycle, following the Eurovelo 6 along the iconic Rhine and Danube rivers. Accompanied by his wife, Cathie and their two hardy bikes christened Jenny and Craig, this is an enticing adventure across five countries as they cycle through small villages and along quiet back roads, meeting the locals and enjoying the bounty and diversity of each region.
Spending almost as much time in restaurants and cafes as in the saddle, the author explores the pleasures and pathways of an area renown for history, food, wine, beer and natural wonders. From German strudel to Hungarian goulash, Steven Herrick never loses sight of the mantra, 'cycling is just an interlude between meals.'
'bratwurst and bicycles' is a river adventure, a restaurant ramble and a guidebook for those who enjoy slow food, relaxed cycling and grassroots travel.
