Welcome to Eurotandem
This is the re-hosted blog created originally on MySpace for our 2008-9 attempt on the Eurovelo 7 – the long-distance cycle route from Nordkapp, Norway, to Malta. Now MySpace has offloaded all its blogs to wordpress.com, so here’s an opportunity to bring you up to speed if you’ve never visited the site before. In which case where have you been?
We covered 7,850km through Norway, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Italy and Malta. We were forced to break the journey at Innsbruck in November 2008 as winter closed in around us; but we were back in April 2009 to tackle the Italian leg.
The blog begins in March 2008, we arrived at Nordkapp in late July ’08 and finished in Malta in June ’09. I hope this helps you navigate your way through the archive.
We raised over £2,500 for two charities: sos children’s villages and the Huntington’s Disease Association.
If you’re planning your own assault on Eurovelo 7, we hope this account is helpful.
