I'm planning to do 1-2 weeks of touring in Europe this August from around the 7th onward.
My current thinking is to begin at Milan Bergamo Airport in Northern Italy, riding north into the Alps, working my way up to Brugge in Belgium, where I will get a ferry back to Hull in the UK, and cycle back to my house in Lincoln.
That's as far as planning has got so far, and would be happy considering other options within the same time frame. Due to work commitments, I won't be able to spend any more than about 20 days on the trip.
The agenda will be to travel light, with a saddle bag, frame bag and handle bar bag only. Sleeping provision will be a bivvy bag and tarp. Warm showers members and hostel/hotel accommodation will also feature where required. I anticipate cycling up to 120km per day in flat regions, obviously restricted significantly in alpine areas.
If anyone would be interested in joining me, let me know!
