On the whole a very enjoyable experience. If you follow the Euroveloย 6 you can expect a relatively flat ride and meet lots of other cycle tourists. Campsites are dotted all along the various rivers and itโ€™s never really a problem finding accommodation. The weather was great! perhaps too hot!

My favourite country (although hard to choose) would have to be France. Perhaps it was because everything was new or that I could understand the road signs, but the main factor was that each little town had so much character.

This marks the end of my Euroveloย 6 route, thanks Andrew Sykes for re-posting my blog entries on I really appreciate all your comments. I hope that it might help others who are planning on doing the Rivers Route in the future. If you have any questions feel free to contact me on thanks for following!

The adventure continues for me as I make my way down to Rome.”
