How many photos is too many photos? I was only on the ride for 3 weeks, I can’t imagine having 6 weeks of images to make sense of.

Our route: (England) London -> Maidstone -> Dover -> (France) Dunkirk -> (Belgium) Bruges -> Brussels -> (Netherlands) Breda -> Amsterdam -> Zwolle -> (Germany) Meppen -> Bremen -> Hamburg -> Lütjenburg -> (Denmark) Sakskøbing -> Copenhagen.

IMG_5718These orange ribbons were tied to trees, lightpoles, blades of grass and hoisted up flag poles. They were used as signals for turns and routing along the entire ride. Every day one of the guides would leave at 4:45am ahead of the group so we knew where we were going.

IMG_6371This is Doug and he looks like he’s having a ball boxing up everyone’s bikes at the end of the trip. We had four amazing guides who were so patient and accomodating and fun. It’s not easy leading a group like ours.
