  Level of support: Information about the service and luggage van (the “Technical Service”) - The Driver of the back-up van, however, is not just a chauffeur & luggage supplier! The Follower-Van carries your luggage from hotel to hotel and brings some spare-bikes too. For even more safety along the way is the driver of the van equipped with mobile (cell-) phones. The daily biking routes cross again and again the way of the service and luggage van. The van follows the cyclists without coming in sight or disturbing. It has the tools, spare parts and a travel pharmacy, additional bike bags on board. The driver helps to repair the failures with the bikes - he is ready to help for you on the spot. (He is not an "impersonal call centre" in the “misty distance”!) The bus/van transfers of cyclists inserted occasionally in the trips make it possible to overcome roads with heavy traffic or exhausting short-cuts and make it possible a transport to a next city of the tour. During the transfers the Driver of the van carries your bicycles for free in the special biketransporting trailer.
