I am embarking on my first cycle tour this August. I have booked my ferry on 04.07 from Harwich to Hook of Holland. I plan to cycle through Holland and Northern Germany to Hamburg (I plan to go up to Norden in Germany as I have close family friends there). I would be happy to join with anyone on sections of the journey and welcome recommendations for particular routes, and any advice on where to stay. I will have a pop-up tent with me so can stop to camp, but I don't know what it's like in these areas for camping.
Also, I am on quite a low budget for this trip, so if anyone in London has old gear they no longer use for cheap/ willing to donate then please get in touch. Looking forward to meeting some lovely people along the way.
