1,500 mile european summer bike love
im looking at doing a 28-day tour from late july to august. this is my roughest of preliminary sketches for an itinerary (with my very likely inaccurate guesstimates for miles in parentheses). all feedback on the basic route and timeframe ive laid out would be just great!
july 23rd: meet in freiburg
july 24-26: set off nice and early heading towards austria, across southern germany. (200)
july 27-29: make our way across austria, stopping in vienna. (150)
july 30-august 1: now we tour hungary, see budapest. (150)
august 2-4: circle up through slovakia and into the czech republic, stopping in prague. (200)
august 5-7: head back into germany, up to berlin. (150)
august 8-12: then head west back across germany and into the netherlands. (250)
august 13-15: hit up amsterdam, then down to brussels. (150)
august 16-17: ride up through belgium to the coast. take the ferry across into england ('the' ferry being the one i assume and hope exists). (75)
august 18-20: ride across england into wales. end up in cardiff. (150)
does anything stand out as totally wrong? anything you would change? could this be done averaging 50-70 miles a day? i know its rough at this point.. but this is how greatness starts.
