    Help, Touring Europe.Bike Rental and Singletrack suggestions.

    My wife and I are backpacking/train/hosteling thru Europe this summer. We are avid Mt. Bikers and would like to rent bikes and do a ride while we are there. We will be in France, Italy, Switzerland and maybe Austria. We prefer flowing trails, easy to intermediate difficulty, and hopefully one with great views. We have done some ski lift/downhill in USA and liked those as well. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for the input.The hot springs ride in Italy looks like a great way to end a ride. The Germany site was only in German, and I am probably too slow to figure out how to get it in English. The Swiss site is blocked by my school site, so I will try it at home. Thanks again, Flint
