    Hi Stefan,

    Congratulations on this impressive journey. I can only imagine, but it must be tough even for the trained rider, but tranquil and serene at the same time, like a meditation, passing towns, villages and people like in a dream. But a dream that became true for you…happiness:-)

    Kind regards,
    Edward

    Seems like a pretty nice trip !

    I rode half of the east coast last year, starting from Lyon (France).

    How did you find the roads?

    It was very difficult for me to find nice ones, it was either highways of small roads full of trucks avoiding the highways.

    Axel,

    I travelled with Michelin maps, did roughly 70% on the “white” marked roads, 20% on the “yellow” marked ones and maybe 10% on the “red” ones, what are national roads. the best is not touch at all national roads, but sometimes you have to, to connect different small ruler roads. many of the yellow roads should be small ones, but thats not the case anymore in many cases, since they reformed the roads and now the are wide and ugly.

    so, just stick to the white ones ;) and you will be in paradise, very rural places.

    best Stefan
