TOTAL DISTANCE: 3000+ miles
AVERAGE DAILY DISTANCE: 40 - 49 miles
TERRAIN: Main Roads
STARTING POINT: Nottingham, UK
ENDING POINT: To be decided
DESCRIPTION: It will start in Nottingham UK - this is a must as am looking for someone who can start the journey with me. Later on if you want to go on your own, I'm fine with this, just as long as we start from the same point.
The budget will be around £5-£8 a day. The main method of sleep will be free camping when we see a nice spot. I have already got most of the things I need for this tour, but I ended up with the idea of doing it with a 20” folding bike and got rid of my touring bike. This might of been a mistake if I can’t find anyone else willing to do this distance with a folding bike as well (riding a folding bike for the journey will be very slow). Someone who has a normal bike, our speed difference may be hard to stay together. If I absolutely have to, I'll scrap this idea of a folding bike - am open to talks on this.
The end date of this tour is open.
Europe (Part1) England UK -> Netherlands -> Belgium -> France -> Spain (ferry £150+ from England to Netherlands). If we still have money and want to carry on I would be willing to fly to Asia from Spain (flight £900+).
Asia (Part2) Malaysia -> Thailand -> Cambodia -> Vietnam (then possibly fly to Japan)
About me: This year i moved back to my parents so I could clear me debt off and save for this adventure. I have now cleared all my debt off and just hit the half way mark on my savings. Personality wise I lean more on the introvert scale even more so now am in my 30s. Am easy going and open to change of plans or ideas. The ideal person for me to cycle with is someone that’s very relaxed and easy going. I can come across as being a quiet person I guess, but am sure as time goes on we will have lots of time to talk.
