Making progress, but not quite there yet! Thanks to Massimo in Benevento I have some detail south of Rome but north of Rome still lacks a day by day breakdown, as does the bit between Luxembourg to Strasbourg. This latter stretch has given George Jemmott some issues on his recent ride from Milan; what do you suggest George? Back in southern Italy, a couple of the days that Massimo has suggested involve some long days in the saddle… Will I be up to the challenge at the end of five weeks cycling? I can extend the arrival in Brindisi by a few days…. Still very much work-in-progress.
not much time for a comment right now, busy mapping-as-I-go. Belgium is large and hilly! Anyway, I will respond to all this with complete (ha! you can be the judge of that…) maps.
In any case I have at least one suggestion, sometimes 2 or 3 with varying recommendations, for each stretch of the route.
I plan to arrive in Amsterdam around the 20th or 21st, and document my entire trip by May 4th, when I leave for the states, so stay tuned…
