North Sea Cycle Route

from http://www.northsea-cycle.comIn 2001 under the head of the European cyclist organisation, the longest cycling route in the world was officially opened for business: the North Sea Cycle Route.

The North sea cycling road is a 6.000 km long route going through nine different countries: Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Scotland, England, France, Belgium and the Netherlands.

Official starting point of this route are the Shetland islands and the route ends in Bergen, Norway. But what do you do if your hometown is the city of Hamburg and the official starting point is about 400 km away? That’s right! Just jump on your bike and go. That’s how I rolled (literally) in 2011 on my trip from Harburg to Grenaa (and back to Harburg crossing the Baltic Sea). You can find out all about it in one of the subcategories on this website!
