The better part of valour is discretion...

Bad news for some of my fellow bike travellers! John Mitchell and Tom Bishop were due to start a WORLD trip, and two days after getting their bikes, they had them stolen! Just makes me extra vigilant when leaving my bike unattended. I plan to take two cable locks and a big U-lock for my trip.

Luckily for Bish and John, they are going to get two more bikes at greatly reduced prices thanks to the generosity of their local bike shop.

The way to go...

This is my -proposed- route, nothing set in stone, but it goes to areas that I want to visit, such as northern Germany and the coast, central Europe and the French Riviera. Also southern France is on the hit list. As you can see on the larger map, I conveniently go around the Alps. Click on the map for a much larger version.
