Hi from Cambridge UK

Hi, I'm new to the forum and have caught the cycle touring bug in a virtual sense - not yet having done a tour. I plan (after testing out kit) to cycle to Rome (from Cambridge) and back next May/June and would appreciate any advice/encouragement in particular about routes. I was thinking of Harwich to the Hook of Holland then following the Rhine to Switzerland and over the Alps into Italy, returning from Italy wholly through France. The camping will be the first I've done for many years but I'm mostly concerned about languages. Any general advice would be most welcome.

Hello donki, there is a gentleman, jibi, who haunts the 50+ forum (and may well haunt other forums). He seems to have done quite a bit of travelling of the sort you say you would like to do. You may wish to contact him. We also have a Touring Forum, so you may wish to check that forum out as well.

Welcome to BF!

Many thanks East Hill. I'm not sure how to post my intro on the 50+ and touring sections of the forum?

Look at the upper right hand corner, where it says Welcome, donki. Directly underneath that there is an underlined Private Messages. Click on that, and it will take you to your private messages. A PM is a Private Message.

I see you did find the Touring and 50+ forums, and you did read the private message, so I think you're good to go.
