I'm planning on riding from Berlin to London in a couple of weeks time but I'm having some route planning issues, mostly as there is no Google street view in Germany.
I'm trying to work out which roads are busy/main roads and avaoid them accordingly but I can't find a huge amount of info - if anyone has experience of riding in Germany I would like to know the following:
- Are Bundesstraßen (B Roads) too busy and fast to ride on comfortably?
- Are there cycle lanes on many of the Bundesstraßen?
- Are L and S roads significantly more comfortable and worth the extra mileage/more circuitous routing?
- Any useful online resources for cycling in Germany/Netherlands?
Any advice gratefully received, especially from anyone who has ridden this route before.
