European Tour - Summer/Autumn 2017

Hi there!
I'm planning to cycle around Europe this year, starting at the end of July/beginning of August, leaving from London. I was a pushbike courier in London for 4 years and although I have no experience when it comes to long-distance riding, I'm totally up for the challenge. I'll be cycling around England in July in order to practice and gain confidence.
I'm taking along my video/photography gear in order to document the whole experience and I'm interested in exploring alternative lifestyles and communities that I find on my path. I haven't yet defined the route I'm taking, so things are still very flexible. Just to give you an idea, the countries I'm almost certain to be passing by are England, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Italy, also possibly crossing France, Switzerland, Montenegro, Albania, Greece.
If anyone would be interesting in joining me on the journey or part of it, one would be most welcome!

Hi there! Thanks for replying

Hi there! Thanks for replying!
Would you be willing to share what route you have in mind? Where are you now and where are you planning to go to?
Then i have a better idea and can work around that.
I hope we can meet around! xx

Interested

Hi, I want to do a trip earlier, but if I don't leave before July, I would love to join you and whoever else is interested. I have only done a 3 day bicycle trip which I did last week in preparation for a longer trip. I did 80 kilometers each day.

Can you keep me updated on your plans?

Hey!

Hey!
We are leaving at the beginning of July for almost the same trip! (just adding copenhagen, Berlin, krakow, and probably Belgrade)
We love alternative place, music discovery and urbex. Most of our trip will be in wildcamping.
Could be funny to share a part of the trip!
We will see where we are at the first of august ;) (I would say Berlin, but nothing sure!)

August Frankfurt to athens

Wow, there are so many of us on the road, hopefully some random meetups will happen!

I'm leaving Frankfurt on the 7 Aug, aiming to get to athens on the 1st. sept. Pondering eurovelo 15 then 5. Unless I'm making good time then will go the longer route down route 8 instead of 5.
If any one else is on a bit of this around then drop me a mail.

Good Luck everyone.

Lille - Athens

Hey everyone,

It's great to know there will be a bunch of us riding across Europe this summer !
For my part, I will be leaving Lille (France's North's capital) early August, and following three different Eurovelos routes I will be passing by :

Belgium -> Holland -> Germany -> Czech Republic -> Austria -> Slovenia -> Croatia -> Montenegro -> Albania -> Greece

It will be my first biketrip ever too, so I would be glad to have companions on this adventure, or at least some stages of it !
Cheers,

Barthélémy

European adventure!

Wow, what a great response from the community!

I will also be doing a European trip this summer (with some trains/ buses to help speed up the process sometimes). I think I'm going the opposite direction you are though, however, keep us updated! It would be cool to meet up in a country somewhere along the way!

Good luck!

European Tour - Summer/Autumn 2017

Hi,

I plan to do Cambridge UK to Switzerland starting early September. I'll follow the border of France and Belgium (Lille, les ardennes) before heading south to Switzerland (through potentially Verdun, Nancy, or Luxembourg and alongside the Rhein). My route is not really defined yet. If anyone is around at that time, I'll be happy to share few miles with you.

Cheers and enjoy your rides !

An idea...

It would be great to be able to pinpoint our position when on tour and to see where is the closest traveller of the community, what do you think?

I agree. It would be a great feature.  Loads of problems and issues surrounding it no doubt.

Maybe if you could just make it avialable to a chosen few, or only have it narrowed down to certain distances, etc.

But when you have been days on the road seeing a friendly face would be most welcome... Not every one you meet wants to talk about bikes or saddle sores
