After A Week On The Road

After 5 days on the road, we arrived in Amsterdam in the evening of Friday 22nd of June. It took until Thursday 21st to reach the port of Harwich, after around 170 miles of cycling. During that time, we camped in parks, fields and back gardens and were shown incredible hospitality by complete strangers. We were frankly blown away by the generosity of people when they heard what we had set out to achieve. We covered the 80km from the Hook of Holland to Amsterdam on Friday, and we decided it was time for a rest day, as we’re all completely knackered.

Arriving at Harwich

More on the first leg of our journey will soon be available for viewing in the first episode of the Ride Earth podcast, which should be ready at the beginning of July! In the meantime, keep an eye open for new blog entries and photographs of our experiences. Next, we’ll be heading south through Belgium towards France, where we’re hoping to cover the length of the country fueled entirely by wine and cheese.

Departure Time

Finally, after months of planning, paperwork and 25-hour days, we’ve left on our epic journey round the globe! We’ll be posting regular updates on this blog, as well as making video podcasts available throughout the journey. Make sure you subscribe to the blog or check back often to see how we’re doing!

None of us have any experience of cycle touring before, so this is really going to test our mental and physical endurance.

Goodbye for now…
