A2 from South-West
B248/B248: Follow A2 to Braunschweig, exit at Zweidorfer Holz and ask for Wolfsburg. There take B248 to Brome and B244 to Salzwedel. (Towards Traumschule in Riebau you can ask for the shortcut Ziethnitz-Kricheldorf.) However this track is less used than B71 from Magdeburg and depending on where drivers drop you, standing at bus stops in villages can be time consuming.
Alternatively exit 69 of highway A2 (Hannover-Berlin) then B71 as above.
Exit railroad Hannover-Hamburg at Schwarmstadt - 214 - Celle - walk a bit - 191 - Uelzen - 71 Salzwedel
Towards Riebau either walk 11km via Schillerstrasse x K1002 - Ritze - K1389 - Chuden - Jeebell - Riebau or try at the east end of Schillerstrasse, Arendseeerstrasse at busstop in front of Sixt car rental or 100 meter in direction of Ritze at a small crossroad from the roundabout B71 x 248.
Exit Raststatte Helmstedt (eastbound service station). Coming from the east leave the truck or van with your bike at Raststatte Lappwald and enjoy the ride through the Lappwald on L20 via Bad Helmstedt (the nearby nuclear deposit Morsleben may be worth a visit). Follow the road towards Miersterhorst, Klötze, Brüchau, enter and follow the B71 to Salzwedel, or try Traumschule in Riebau for a night or two: Exit B71 at Stappenbeck (right after the empty glass displays), cross Pretzier to Riebau.
There is a nice bus stop after the round about on the B71. You can take bus #100 to Am Fuchsberg which runs every two hours. Hitch with a sign. Many people going south from the region are passing by here.
