Has anyone done this?  Any assistance in terms of lodgings and food?

for lots of information.   There are quite a few youth hostels in Germany so worth while joining for cheap friendly accommodation.   Other than that, look for Gastattes (bars) with a "Fremdenzimmer" sign.   The rooms are generally very good and a lot cheaper than hotels.   Plenty of campsites in the more scenic parts.

There's plenty of choice in terms of food, a lot of bars serve food and it's generally very good.   You also get plenty of fast food stands and they're also pretty good.

You'll find lots of information on the normal tourist web sites.   If you're in a town, look for a sign "Verkehrsampt"   It's the tourist office and they will be able to tell you what accommodation is available and book it for you as well.

Thanks - do you know whether the Frankfurt airport will charge to keep my hardshell bike case for the ten days I'll be gone?

I used to live in heidelberg and am very familiar with many variations of this route. I speak German (and now French as well). I have a wealth of information and books if you want I can give some specific advice.

Here is a short piece I did on one trip: http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/?o=lt&doc_id=1371&v=5j
