Summer plans: the North Sea Cycle Route

We are off on May 8th to Europe in May for four months, cycling and visiting.

We’ll spend three months cycling around the North Sea:

Our route will take us through eight countries. We start at The Hague in the Netherlands and head south through Belgium and just into France. Then across the Channel by ferry and up the east coast of England and Scotland. On to Orkney and the Shetlands, then by ferry back to Aberdeen and by air to Bergen, Norway. From Bergen we head south and east, around the coast of Norway to Sweden, Denmark, Germany and back to the Netherlands to finish where we started on a beach just outside The Hague. About 6000km. Then a month of visiting family and friends, and some less ambitious touring.
