Nothing happened of any importance in my life this weekend. I didn’t even make it down to the gym. I certainly didn’t learn how to juggle.
Someone has, however, linked to this website recommending it as a source of information about the Eurovėlo 5. I just spent a few minutes reading through some of the posts I made this summer and it reminds me of what I did and what I should be proud of achieving. I desperately need a new project in life. One to better the 3,200 kilometre cycle from Reading to Brindisi. I need to decide what that will be and when I will do it by the end of the year. Otherwise a boring, unproductive weekend could turn out to be a blueprint for the months and years ahead…
(A kid at school reprimanded me last week for putting four dots at the end of one of my paragraphs; it should always be three…. whoops!)
It may well be a struggle to top this summers adventure in the time you get off school…
You seem pretty good with the european culture… Elsewhere?
You can ride a bike… walking, running, sailing?
You seem up for the challenge… But what has not been done? A little imagination might bring that to you.
Could you make a route up that meant you would never sleep in a hotel?
A weekend fallow often brings out the best ideas.
Talking to others also helps. Ever been on a local CTC ride? Lots of worldly experience gathers there, cafe stops are good places to start an adventure..
Like you having finished this years cycle – Hamburg to Venice (3000km) we are of course looking for our next project and think we have found it – the Eurovelo 6. Looks great and is well documented starts off very easy culturally then gets much more challenging in Eastern Europe – is about 3500km. wlould really like to continue on to Istanbul once we get to Constansa but unfortunately dont think we can be away for that lenghth of time.
