5 month Europe Cycling Tour.

Postby mnmtours » Tue Feb 26, 2013 19:40 pm

HI everyone at Bike Radar, http://www.mnmtours.com

Me and My girlfriend are two young racing cyclists that have an ambition to do something different and inspirational. In the year of 2013 we have decided to use 5 months to discover what Europe has to offer by bike. On the 1st of March 2013 we will set off on the journey, beginning at Santander. During this trip of a lifetime we will be camping in a tent in all kinds of places around the continent.

We met in the not so hot summer of Belgium 2012. Both of us were full time racing cyclists, we became friends and found out we share the same dream of experiencing different cultures and landscapes. As the racing side of the sport has suffered a lot of bad publicity, we decided to keep our passion for cycling and use our bikes in a different way to pursue our dreams!

we have managed to secure a bike sponsor from Trek for the adventure and we will be taking alot of luggage. The trip will be mainly camping (please visit our website for more info about our adventure at http://www.mnmtours.com We would like to ask anyone with some experience or knowledge for some good advice that can help us during the trip.

Please visit our website that we have made for the trip and follow us around europe at http://www.mnmtours.com

Thank you
Mike Gregg and Marie Voreland.

Wishing you safe travels. This is something myself and my partner are looking at doing when I have finished university, having done a month long tour together before. I shall read with interest.

Read "Crossing Europe on a Bike" by Andrew Sykes. You may pick up a few tips, but even if you don't it's a very amusing read.
