Routes / Re: Texas Hill Country trip

My husband and I spent about two weeks in the hill country this spring - perfect, sunny weather - very windy - great temps.  We camped mainly in Fredericksburg and did day rides.  We also spent some time near Lost Maples State rec area.  We biked a 79 mile loop Leaky-Campwood-Barksdale.  Willow City Loop is outstanding, also near Fredericksburg.  Enchanted Rock area is a lot of fun, too.  Lots of great back roads.  We avoided the highways.

The Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin has wonderful bike maps.  (a series of 4 that are very reasonable in cost).  The maps show all of the bike trails, paved, and gravel roads in the state.  Some of the trails you would bike on are: Elroy-Sparta trail, the La Crosse River Trails, the 400 trail, Glacier-Drumlin trail.  I would strongly recommend getting the southern two maps.  Have a fun trip.  Our friends rode lots of those trails last summer on their road bikes, and said they worked just fine - altho most of the trails are crushed lime stone.


My husband and I are going to be bike touring in Barvaria Germany for about one month - and will fly in and out of Frankfurt airport.  Does anyone have a recommendation on a hotel near the airport that might be willing to store our bicycle boxes.  Also, do you know if there is a bike path from the airport to the Main River?  How is the Main River bike route going East from the airport? (i.e. - is it a trail, roads, trafficy, pleasant?)
Any hints/suggestions will be helpful.
