Streckenbeschilderung mangelhaft
die Tour ist in Ordnung, die Hotels sind gemischt von sehr gut bis nicht so schönmangelhaft ist teilweise die Textbeschreibung der Strecke (unverständlich)die Ausschilderung (grüne Pfeile) ist sehr verbesserungswürdig, Pfeile sind oft sehr versteckt oder erst 100 - 200 m nach der Kreuzung angebracht. Wer richtig gefahren ist, sieht den Pfeil, wer falsch gefahren ist, nicht.
