Danube Cruise 2012

A few years back, a friend of mine (and fellow framebuilder) launched a revolutionary concept for a European cycling tour. Instead of booking hotel rooms, Bill & Jan McCready of Santana Cycles charter an entire luxury cruise ship for a week-long party. On their “no-repacking” vacations the cruise ship enables everyone to ride as many or few miles as they want. When I told Bill he was having too much fun, he invited Waterford to join Santana this summer to experience his favorite itinerary.

I’ve spent considerable time on the Danube – especially in Budapest, which is known a “the Paris of the East”. You’ll find it fascinating and quite civilized. Central Europe has remained relatively undiscovered among American cyclists, but the reports we received mark it as an unbeatable experience.

This cruise doesn’t just cater to cycling enthusiasts, even occasional and non-cyclists will enjoy each stop, the spacious and comfortable accomodations as well as the first class cuisine. With stays in Prague, Vienna, and Budapest, you’ll enjoy three of the great cities not just of Europe but in the entire world.

My wife Debra and I have jumped at the chance co-host this event. Joining the four of us will be Ben & Marcie Serotta of Serotta. Because you’re a valued member of Waterford’s team, I’d like to invite you to join us for a once in a lifetime adventure on the legendary Blue Danube. A week with cycling, cruising, sightseeing and an experience you’ll never forget!
