Two week tour

Post by Neil Compton » 26 May 2017 11:55

Hi, i haven't posted for a while but i'm back in the saddle and off on a tour again to France, Belgium and Holland. I set off on the 3rd June. I'm getting the train down to reading and then cycling to Portsmouth to get the overnight ferry to Le Havre. From Le Havre i'll be making my way to Bruges and then on to Holland and the West Frisian Islands before heading back to the Hook of Holland for the ferry back to Harwich. Been a while but looking forward to it.

Might see on the road, Neil. I'm off on the ferry to Amsterdam 6 June and after a few days in town will start pedalling towards Copenhagen. It will be good to be back on the road :D

Thanks guys.

Have a good one Barry. Doubt i'll have got as far as Holland by the time you set off but you never know. Will you be going along the coastal route?

Will go inland through Friesland as I have friends living there, but probably hit the coast north of Groningen
