Sitting thinking of a route for this Summer, and have come up with the idea of part of the North Sea cycle route. To take advantage of the winds (yeah, right...), my thought is to go from Calais round to perhaps Esbjerg. I know the bits through France, Belgium and Holland, but not Germany or that bit of Denmark. I tried the website for the route, and it is shot. Any info/advice on this one? Just looking at a short ride of two to three weeks bimbling. My main query is that it looks as if the route has to go through Hamburg; no apparent ferry at the Elbe mouth.
