I'm a 28 years old Swede who will cycle and camp Amsterdam - Bilbao via Utrecht, Ghent, Brugges, the coastal routes of France (Velodyssey och Tour de Manche) and San Sebastian v35-39. A rough estimate of the distance would be at least 3100km.
I normally pace 80-120km / day and that will be my goal on this trip as well. This pace would leave some days to rest, to stay in some cities and unplanned stuff. My preferences for the trip are 70% / 30% experience and scenery vs cycling i.e I'm cycling for the experience not for the cycling in itself.
I love taking short detours just for the sake of the view and taking time to explore villages but at the same time I've no problem hammering in between the stops and the POI just to be able to spend more time enjoying the good stuff. It would be really fun having someone joining me for the whole or parts of the trip!
I'm easy going and have some sense of humor. I think as long as we share the same expectations for the trip we'll have a good time! I would prefer cycling with boy or girl in my age +/- 10 years. I'm cycling a cyclo cross with road tires and cleats. It would be preferable cycling with someone having a somewhat similar setup so that our pace matches (unless you're really strong cyclist).
If you're interested don't hesitate to send me a message and we'll see if our goals and expectations of such trip coincide.
