My plan is to cycle 3,600 miles around the coastline of the North Sea and visit 7 countries in 70 days. I intend to start from Felixstowe at the end of April 2010. I will cycle up the East coast of England and Scotland to John O Groats where I will take ferries to the Orkney and Shetland Isles. The next stage starts in Bergen in Norway where it follows the coastline to Varberg in Sweden. I will continue along the North Sea coastline in Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands to The Hook of Holland where a final ferry takes me back to Felixstowe. The route will follow minor roads and can be viewed on http://www.northsea-cycle.com/
I have named the journey, Cycle 7/70, because the name North Sea Cycle Route does not describe the journey as exciting as it will be. I am raising money for Devon Wildlife Trust because they do such a fantastic job for the countryside and wildlife locally. The beautiful coutryside, wildlife and conservation in Devon exists because of Devon Wildlife Trust and other like minded people and organisations. Please see my website for more information.
