Improvements to Mannheim's cycling network.

The work towards establishing cycling as a serious part of local transport can only be carried out here in Mannheim as a series of minor improvements. Germany already has a good, when it must be admitted, but not perfect cycling network. We were very pleased to see, for example, that the ramp between the Neckar bank and the cycle routes along the B37 north of Mannheim near to two of the major hospitals in the city has been finished. Before one needed to carry bikes, baggage and trailers up or down two flights of stairs. If you decide to follow the Neckar Cycle Route and wish at the start or finish of your journey to go to the Mannheim Hauptbahnhof (Central Railway Station) you will be very grateful for this "minor" improvement.
