Default Touring on bike paths?

Hello,

Has anybody went on a bike tour solely using bike paths?

If so, where did you do it and how far did you go? Was it all done on
paths?

Regards,

I did the Katy Trail once. That was the flattest 225 miles I've ever done.

I've done it in Germany where there are numerous such paths, called
Radwegs. It is a bit slower because of the extra navigation involved.

And don't forget the Netherlands!

Have you done the C&O Canal or gone the rest of the way up to Pittsburgh?
I want to do that one (two) in one vacation.

I do my daily ride on a very small part of the "east coast greenway"

Slower for A-B but not slower in terms of speed. The radwegs in Germany
are fantastic.
