Hello everyone, my name is Spencer, I am 20 yrs old and I am planning on doing my first Independent(unless anyone wants to join with me?!-Seriously) EuroCycleTour and I need YOUR help! My horse(a green 2004 Magna named Glacier Point, lol) will be my ride AND NO I will not throw her away, we've been through too much togetheir =). Anyway, she's a 15 Speed(when she's working correctly) and she doesnt like to be roughed up too much(can't take a whole lot of pressure so I can't take her over the pass.)
I(we) are interested in Cruisin from a point A to point B somewhere(anywhere) in Europe that departs from and ends at two of the following cities that I can fly to from the US which are....Munich-Barcelona-London-Paris-Amsterdam-Frankfurt-Rome-Venice-Stockhom-Lisbon-Madrid-Manchester-Glasgow-Shannon-Dublin-Amsterdam-Brussels-Milan-Athens- and Zurich. I need to put togetheir a Route from Euro destination A to Euro destination B, and I am here for advice from the pro's to help me pick a most favorable route for me to travel on.
Now, I realize there are many variables as to which route to travel such as...my conditioning, my skill, my ride, my time, my desire, exc. So here's a bit more info to help put this sucker togetheir. My Conditioning is pretty good as I am young and in good athletic condition. I have always been a local biker but have not advanced to anything that required more than one day. I know I am up for the challenge and am ready to move ON! My ride really is the Magna(chinese junk), unfortunately I was'nt kidding about that, lol. But hey, If she breaks in half at midpoint I'll be alright, I'm up for the adventure. I know basics of the mechanical aspects of my bike and will thoroughly review before trip. My time is pretty wide open as I am a full time student of Financial independence and am in a position where I can Flex like you've never seen before! I was thinkin of this Spring as the weather starts to get more nice. And my desire is strong to go on this trip, but I'm wide open to suggestions and where to ride precisely. I have done minimal research on Irleland and the UK but thats about it. I would like something that I could cruise preferably for less than 7-days at no more than maybe 50miles a day(average). I'm not in a race, I just want to see the sites, enjoy an awesome ride, live a lil adventure, meet some people, and do it all while packing inexpensive food and water to drink, camping/bumming/Hosteling my way every night, and just reviving myself and making sure I'm still alive.
I see there are many Europeans and Worldwide bikers on here and am asking for any help, please. I would appreciate any recommendations or tips If you have them. Mostly on recommendations about particular biking routes that sound like something I would be interested in. Thanks in advance you guys for hearing me out!
To the Future and the next ride!"
