Pilgrimage Cycle

Hi,
I am a female cyclist from South Africa. I have cycled a lot of France and a bit of Italy last year. I am dying to go back and travel, but I have no idea WHERE?! Japan? Vietnam and Korea? Lithuania where my ancestors are from and into Russia. Beautiful Norway, Sweden, maybe back to Poland, Germany and France?

There are so many stunning cities but I have certain requirements. Firstly, I can only go in February for around one month - which speaks much of the weather... Second, I will mostly likely be on my own so I need somewhere reasonably safe. Three, I will need options along the routes for camping. Fourth, I want a relatively challenging route, about 100km per day.

Any advice is GREATLY appreciated!

I have been to many countries, so it makes it difficult because I am partly discouraged going to places I have been to before when there are so many other countries and cities yet to discover. Then again, in each country, I have barely seem a fraction of it, barely anything...

Pilgrimage cycle

Feb is a great month for cycling in New Zealand. The 100km per day will be challenging on some of the hilly areas, sweet on flatter areas. LOts of camp grounds,. discrete places for wild camping for a small tent, and plenty of WS hosts along the way. :-)

Yes I think that is the best idea! Know of any routes? I saw one for North West Vietnam to Laos, and I know Japan is a good spot but I'm unsure of hills and distances. What I like about France is the ample camping spots in case, I wonder how the situation is in Asia...

Morocco, Japan, South of China, ...

I just hosted two nice guys, both head to Morocco and loooking at their facebook, quite a lot biker in Morocco, probably the most safe part of North of Afrika.

Japan very nice place and very safe for a girl, but as much expensive as Swittzerland ! the good things in Japan is that it is ok doing camping tent in public parks

In February, South of China is very pleasant ( Hong Kong, Macao, ... ) as well Thailande, ... Taiwan, ... all those places are pretty safe for a lonely girl ... and the FOOD ARE JUST GORGEOUS ! not to say plenty of awesome fruits !!!
