    We've just settled on a central Europe circular tour, starting & finishing in Vienna. Rough plan is to follow Eurovelo 6 to Budapest, then head south west through Hungary before turning north through the Austrian alps, back up to the Danube and follow EV6 back to Vienna. Will be over about four weeks.

    I'm also doing a central European tour in june. Get the bike bus to Macon, then cycle through Switzerland, Liechtenstein and head back home via Germany, Luxembourg and Belgium. Have 5 weeks. Plus I'm doing Caen to Nice with Peak Tours in August :smile:

    Me too! A Trans USA trip is on my bucket list too, maybe 2019. I'd do the northern tier for various reasons so would need longer.
    What will the weather be like for you when you are going Jay C? Pretty mixed I would have thought from very cold to very warm?

    Ride to Clitheroe for the touring festival, then Hull to Rotterdam by ferry. Into Germany then south for a bit turn right and up through France to Cherbourg.

    Going back to France for about 5 weeks in late July, still agonising over where to go this time! Thinking maybe the Velodyssee to Royan then down the Gironde to Bordeaux.
