The route starts across the Rhine from Linz am Rhein, at a parking lot near the ferry in Remagen, which is the closest access point from the A61 motorway. You cross the river on the ferry and then cycle through town to the viewpoint at the Kaiserberg stadium. There is a steep stretch of 17% for 180 m (see waypoint) to get you warm. At the top you have a great view of Linz, Remagen and the Ahr valley. After having enjoyed the view you go back down to the river and follow the river on small roads and cycle paths until Ariendorf. Here you cross the B42 and the railway which were between you and the river from Linz. You cycle past Bad Hönningen and Rheinbrohl with a view of a hilltop castle on the west side of the river. In Rheinbrohl you pass below the railway again and cycle to Hammerstein. This village is surrounded by vineyards. At Leutesdorf you cycle next to the Rhine with a view of Andernach and possibly the Andernach Geysir at Namedyer Werth. From Leutesdorf past Feldkirchen to Irlich you take a cycle path along the B42. In Irlich you pass below the railway and take a cycle path along the river, past the castle park of Schloss Neuwied, and along the Deichanlage in Neuwied. You cycle through an industry park and away from the river on the Im Langendorfer Feld road. At the end of this road you get back to the river and a cycle path with asphalt deteriorated by tree roots along it. You cycle past Engers on the river, and then a bit away from it before you start the climb to Weitersburg. During the climb and just after starting the descent to Vallendar you have nice views across the Rhine valley. In Vallendar you make a short round on the island of Niederwerth. Back on the east bank you cycle on a cycling path close to the river to Koblenz, with nice views of Neuendorf, Koblenz, the Mosel ending up in the Rhine, and the Deutsches Eck with the statue of Kaiser Wilhelm. Just after passing beneath the cable car you go left to climb the steep hill (11 % for 900 m) to the Festung Ehrenbreitstein. This climb past fortified walls and views takes you to the entrance of the fortress. If you want to enter the fortress to have a magnificent view of the city you have to pay entrance (depending on the day and the time) and walk a short while. I could take my bicycle into the fortress. You can also skip the walking and go back 250 m and enjoy the less spectacular view just outside the gate. You go back down to where you left the river, follow it to the bridge crossing the Rhine to Kurfürstliches Schloß, and then cycle to the Deutsches Eck (beware of pedestrians). Before you cross the Mosel, you make a small detour through the city center. On cycling paths you then follow the Rhine back north to the Rheinhafen industrial area. You cycle around the harbor and then continue directly on the Rhine on cycling/pedestrian paths all the way past the nuclear power plant near Weißenthurm until you get to the Andernach industrial area. Again you cycle around the harbor to the river park in the town center. At the ‘Alter Krahnen’ building you leave the river on a cycle path beneath the viaduct of the B9 highway and continue through Namedy to Brohl. In Brohl you follow the cycling route, duck below the railroad, and continue to Rheineck where you take a winding path below the B9 road and along a stream to the river bank, which you then follow all the way back to the starting point, past Bad Breisig and the bridge across the mouth of the river Ahr.
In Linz, you can make the connection to another track I put on Wikiloc which takes you north to Bonn and back (http://nl.wikiloc.com/wikiloc/view.do?id= 8714703). You can find something to eat and drink in many places, with most choice in Koblenz.
