How far will we by cycling per day?

The longest distance will be Freiburg-Strasbourg. This is 80km, mainly along canals and rivers.


Is this some kind of competitive event?

No! It is a study tour. We are more interested in getting to see things than in getting there at the maximum rate.


Should I bring my own bicycle?

For this trip, we will be arranging bike hire in Freiburg and the cost of the hire will be included in the total cost of the tour.

If you really want to bring your own bicycle, please get it serviced before travelling.


I have a really great idea for something that we should see/do in Strasbourg/Freiburg nearby!

Please share it with Julie. We want everyone to get as much out of the tour as possible. If you have background knowledge which you think would be useful, please e-mail us and we can see about adding it to the itinerary.


What about insurance?

Please ensure that you have purchased adequate travel insurance. The Academy of Urbanism does not take responsibility for any injuries or accidents that occur on the trip, so only you will be responsible for your health and safety.


Is this event for charity?

It is not a charity event.

  • Clothes that are comfortable for cycling (bring sufficient clothes for four days)
  • Bike panniers
