Anyway, I am making up for lost time with a Monster bike trip coming up in a couple weeks. I'll be riding from Dunkirk (on the English channel) all the way to Vienna, Austria. its about 1200 miles or so and it'll take about a month to do (with a few "rest days" along the way). The plan is for 50 miles (80km) a day, plus or minus a bit.
I'll be flying to London in a week and I'll have 5 nights in England to get over the jet lag, then on Saturday June 9 I'll catch a ferry from Dover. This trip was actually planned by a friend of mine who generously invited me along. I repaid that generosity by inviting a friend of mine from LA (who was on the Bamberg to Aschaffenburg ride a couple years ago). He will be meeting us along the trail as he had a prior commitment for the first leg.
Anyway, here are the stops along the way (if no country then it's Germany FR=France, BE=Belgium and AT=Austria if you can't figure it out)
Bamberg (a couple extra days here, go figure)
Since I've never been to Vienna, I'll stay a few days to play tourist and check out the beer scene.
I hope to post every day. You can also follow along on Twitter: @FredWaltman
I'll leave you with a picture of my Bike Friday in the planned configuration.
