In 2008, Derek H. joined the annual bike ride ride promoting the Greenways program. The trip from Dresden to Prague to Vienna, along the Elbe River Greenway and the Prague-Vienna Greenway was organized by the Czech Environmental Partnership Foundation. Here's a video and map of the route they took:
In 2008 Roger Högström and Daniel Backgård walked from Prague to Vienna on the Czech
Greenways in 17 days. See the story with photos: www.greenways.harnosand.org
Margaret D. did a guided cycling tour in 2004 on the Vienna-Prague Greenways. See her website about her experiences - photos only.

From Tanya Venter to Friends of Czech Greenways (Sept 1998)
Just to thank you for your information on the Greenway trip in the Czech
Republic. Unluckily I could not order your maps from you as I live in South
Africa and did not have the time to get the postage, and could not find them
at the beginning of my cycling trip. I managed to find parts of your trail
between Cesky Krumlov and Prague and loved it (pity I lost the trails at
some points and had to go back to the roads). I cycled for about 5 days and
did approximately 400 kilometers, working my way along the trail and between
castles - and it was one of the most rewarding weeks of my life.
Thank you once again - and keep up the good work - the beauty of that part
of the world is certainly worth preserving.
From Susan Church to Friends of Czech Greenways (1998)
In 1998, Susan Church walked with her friend for 27 days on nearly the
entire Prague - Vienna Greenways. She liked it so much she gave a slide presentation
in February 1999 at the "Get Lost" bookstore in San Francisco.
