2016 Bike Trip Across Europe

Welcome to the blog detailing our bicycle/car ride across Europe. We will be following Euro Velo’s Capitals Tour which you can see more of by going HERE.

In some of our past trips, some people have asked me to send them emails along with pictures of our daily adventures. This time, I thought I would try a blog. All posts will be available from links on the right menu bar. (if you are viewing this on a cell phone or tablet, the menu bar may be reformatted to appear on the bottom of each page)

On this site, you can follow our daily blogs, view our itinerary, submit comments and suggestions, or just get in touch with us. You don’t need to logon to do anything and if you have any questions on how the site works, just send me an email by clicking Contact Me

Take a look at our daily itinerary. If you are familiar with any places on the route and have suggestions, please let me know by clicking HERE

If you would like to receive an email with the posts as they are published, you can subscribe here by going to the bottom of the page and completing the form.

Wish us luck – we need it!

  27. Ursula MacAffer:

    Ursula – Endlich habe ich alles hier gelesen – freue mich auf ein Wiedersehen.

  28. Jim Tansey:

    Ich bin beeindruckt! Alle ist gut hier. Aber du kennst wie sagen sie “Alles sprechen Englische”. Falsche! In diese winzige Dorfen, sprechen viele Leute kein Englische oder bloss ein bisschen Englische. Das ist gut fuer mich. Ich spreche Deutsch zu sie und sie verstanden mich? Ziemlich viel, kriege ich die Nahrung und trinken das ich bestellen:-) Ich verstehe sie nicht. Ich habe kein Ohr fuer diese Sprache aber ich versuche. Danke Gott habe ich deine Klasse! Bis bald.

  29. Ursula MacAffer:

    Jim, Ihr Deutsch ist schon viel besser! Übung mach den Meister! In gross Städten sprechen viele sehr gut Englisch, in kleinen Dörfern ist dass nicht der Fall, das verstehe ich genau – aber das Sprechen ist gut für Sie.

    Still assume the route to a slimmer physique is hours on the cardio gear? In that case, you ought to be thinking again. It’s been effectively-proven now if you would like a better wanting physique, power training is going to be the path to go. But but, quite a few individuals every day at your local health club slug it out on the bike, treadmill, or elliptical trainer because they firmly consider cardio coaching is the superior choice. It’s time to rethink this idea because the actual fact of the matter is it is merely not the superior selection and the longer you retain doing it, the extra in danger for fats achieve you will be.
