Hills

Is the trail hilly?

No I wouldn't call it hilly. Remember it mostly follows rivers and a canal, so there can't be too many hills.

I added a page showing the elevation profile for the trail. As the graphs show, it is mostly small changes in elevation, but there are a few significant climbs: elevation.aspx

not used to riding hills as none arround here. Could this prove problematic ?

Can you do camping on the side of the trail?
