After riding 350 kms on Vittorio I wasn't ready to ditch him in Koblenez so I could set off for Berlin and Copenhagen. I was determined to take him back to Australia with me. Only problem is I was to take the train around Germany and Denmark. This shouldn't be too difficult as I'd seen loads of people with their bikes on the train.
Tips for taking bikes on trains
I loved seeing all the bikes on the trains. So many people are doing bike trips all around Europe and using the train to get to the starting or from the end points. Train + Bike = Bike touring adventure
Actually there were so many people on the trains that I wasn't able to get a spot on the train to Copenhagen. So I had to ditch him in Berlin. Luckily I had a good friend to pass him onto, who then passed him on to another friend. I think Vittorio is still in Berlin, last seen with some Canadian chicks.
