I'm going to cycle around northern Italy for 3-4 weeks. Probably starting in Varese where I have an old friend. After that, no route planned yet - I'm open to suggestions!
In my previous trips (Portugal, Pyrenees, north Greece), I usually cycled 50-70 km a day, stopping every couple of days in some nice town or village to enjoy the nature, history, culture and of course food! Most of all I hope to know the local people by riding with local cyclists and staying with local hosts (Warmshowers, Couchsurfing). Otherwise, hostels. I'll bring a sleeping bag just in case, but don't plan to camp outside.
I've cycled with others before (usually Warmshowers hosts or guests) and hope to do it again this time.
