EuroVelo 10: The Baltic Sea Cycle Route (2022)

My plan is to set off on Monday 20th June 2022, taking the overnight ferry from Hull to Rotterdam before catching a train to Hamburg. From there I will make my way to the German port of Lübeck where I will start cycling in a clockwise direction around the Baltic Sea following, predominantly, the route of the EuroVelo 10 (the Baltic Sea Cycle Route). My return ferry from Rotterdam is provisionally book for the 20th September, three months after I arrived on the continent…

“The coastline of the Baltic Sea takes in beaches, cliffs, woodland, ports and marinas as well as thousands of islands large and small. It passes through the different cultures that have grown up along the shores . It is an attractive destination and EuroVelo 10 will give you the perfect opportunity to get better acquainted with this corner of Europe. Five beguiling capital cities; glamorous Saint Petersburg and Hanseatic towns like Gdansk and Lübeck provide lots of cultural highlights. In between, you will have a unique opportunity to get back to nature exploring the seashore.”
