Re: New Route Planner

Hi Richard, I discovered a minor problem, but I'm unsure of the consequences. Sometimes on the green (unsurfaced) parts of a route there is an extra straight line visible on the map. See this one: http://cycle.travel/map/journey/18580 It does not show in the downloaded GPS-file. But when it occurres...

Re: Touring in Ireland

Maybe this is interesting: http://www.cyclingeurope.nl/routes/ierland/ The site is in Dutch, the guide is in Dutch, the writer of this guide is Dutch. But Googletranslate is your friend (At least most of it is more or less understandeble). Maps are more or less international. And there is a GPS-trac...

Re: Via Francigena

Partly. This spring I followed the route of a Dutch abbot, called Emo from the beginning of the 13th century. He went from the North of The Netherlands to Rome. From Pavia to Rome he followed the Via Francigena. He wrote a very short travelogue of his trip to Rome and back. A dutch historian reconst...

Re: Holland cycle route info

I don't know how it works. :D :D But here is a map with chargingpoints. But you will need an adapter for the European system, I think. (In some way the UK is a non-European country :lol: ) On the map there are mostly restaurants etc. but i think that almost every campsite has the possibility for cha...

Re: Touring and Camping - Campsite POI's

The only disadvantage of Archies is that there is made no difference the types of sites. Big, very big, small or no tents allowed.
So beware!

Re: Need advice on a bike tour of Scotland

For more inspiration day-to-day reports of my tours in Scotland.

2007
2010
2014

Text is in Dutch, but it is mostly maps and pictures.

In case you use a GPS, this is a good (free) map. It is mostly updated once or twice a year.

Have fun.

In high season twice a day, reservation (mail or phone) with bike needed (7 days before), rather expensive (€ 27,- including bike (2014)), but adventurous. We...
