  1. Hello Andrew, thank you for sharing your achivement in cycle the Eurovelo south too north! I was snapping your heels for a while in my inspiration off yours trip. Started out 12 of may from Sevilla and tried too follow your route for a while upto Rochelle, France where I took a left too go up the Loire river and then Mosel into Rhein and home too Malmö,Sweden. I arrived home as you where approaching Helsingör, Denmark soo missed you with 24 hours for a chat! Would have been amazing too see yaa! You have been a true insperation for me as I went along so thanks again and all the best with your book! Kent

    • Hi Kent. Thanks for the message and congratulations on your own adventure. It’s a pity you didn’t get in touch when I was in Denmark; you could have perhaps persuaded me to slow down… You must have been covering some long distances if you set off on the 12th May and caught up with me. What was your average? And do you plan to cycle to Nordkapp from Malmö sometime? Good luck if you do!
      Best wishes & happy cycling
