Streckenabschnitte
Die Streckenabschnitte waren ungleich verteilt in der Länge, an einem Tag 35 km und an einem andern Tag 85 km. Das könnte ausgewogener sein. Der Ausgang aus der Stadt Wittenberg Richtung Dessau ist ungenügend beschildert, da hat uns eine Einheimische geholfen und gesagt, dass das bekannt sei. Die Unterkunft in Torgau war absolute Spitze. Für uns sind die riesigen unpersönlichen Hotels nicht sympatisch. Herr Seifert hat uns von Torgau nach Pretzsch mit dem Auto geführt, weil ich gesundheitlich angeschlagen war. Dafür war ich sehr dankbar. Am Schluss der Reise hat uns Herr Seer direkt zu unserem Auto zurück gefahren. Beide Herren waren sehr zuvorkommend. Die ganze Reise, die wunderschönne Natur, die Weite, die Radwege, all das hat uns sehr sehr gut gefallen! Einige Grade weniger heiss und die Tour hätten wir noch mehr geniessen können.

Streckeneinteilung
Mindestens einen zusätzlichen Tag für Dresden einplanen. Die Strecke Wittenberg-Dessau ist sehr kurz und die Strecke Dessau-Magdeburg relativ lang. Nach Möglichkeit sollte ein Hotel in der Mitte der beiden Strecken gewählt werden. Nach meiner Meinung bietet Dessau nicht viel, sodass an diesem Tage etwas weiter gefahren werden könnte.

Die Reise war einschließlich Wetter perfekt, das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis stimmig und der punktuelle Kontakt zu anderen Rückenwindlern angenehm. Besonders hat uns das Engagement von Herrn Wüst angesprochen, der uns u.a. telefonisch unverzüglich aus einer heiklen Lage befreite: Hotel in Meissen, alle Unterlagen dazu im transportierten Gepäck.

Schöne Radtour
Mit den Insider Tipps von Rückwind sind wir sehr gut gefahren. Das einzigste Manko war, das an der Strecke, die meisten Gasthäuser in der Woche Ruhe Tag hatten oder es gab nur ein Gericht!

sehr gut
Perfekte Betreung vor Ort durch HERRN Wuest und Herrn Seifert .Die Insidertipps sehr hilfreich. Bei der Affenhitze waren die Klimaanlagen in den Hotels in Dresden und Dessau überfordert,die Nächte waren eine Tortur.
