2014: From Germany via Belgium and France to the UK in 4½ days

Can I do bike touring all alone? What is the daily maximum of kilometers per day with luggage? How to navigate with garmin + open street maps ? In order to prepare for long distance bike touring, I had to have these questions answered for myself. 

In 2014, I cycled to Bath in the UK, to visit a friend who was studying there. It was four and a half hard days on the bike, but once I had finished, I had not only answered the aforementioend questions, but also seen many beautiful places in Belgium and Southern UK, two regions I hadn’t had any idea about up until then.

Data:

  • distance / riding time: 793,8 km / 44:25 h
    • 1st day: 179,2 km / 8:45 h

    • 4th day: 156,4 km / 9:00 h
    • 5th day: 101,3 km / 5:42 h
  • accumulated altitude difference: 8.177 m
