Last year I´ve been cycling from Bavaria to Rome in Itlay – and those days I´ve met a cupple from Lithuania at the beginning of this trip.
They invited me to visit their wonderful country and recommended me the “LatEst” cyclepath – unfortunately the surface of it is more than 50 % gravel so it´s not possible to go there with my recumbent.
But while looking for options I found a great route through Europe – the EuroRoute R1, which leads you from London via Germany to St. Petersburg in Russia.
Wow – that sounds great and would give me a trip to go for the next 3 years – so, let´s do it!
I´ve started the preparations for this adventure already in September 2016 as I need a transport from St. Petersburg – which wasn´t that easy as there isn´t a direct ferry to Germany anymore.
Also the experiences with the changeable weather – even in Italy – forced me to look for another tent – so the guys from Globetrotter in Munich gave me a hint that MSR would bring out a new tent especially for cyclists – and here we are…so follow my new adventure – I´m looking forward to it. Starting in the middle of May 2017.
