Approx distance covered: 2180 km
What's this all about?
I'm Ben Hambidge. I live in Bristol, UK, and am currently cycling across
Europe... partly for the sheer challenge of it, but also to raise money for
WaterAid. I set off on 28th July 2010, and hope to reach Warsaw before the
end of August.
I'm not a hard-core cyclist - in fact I'm not even a soft-core one. Fairest of
weather and the flattest of terrains has been a prerequisite up till now, and
rarely for more than a local ride. Apart from tacklling Bristol to London last
year, I've never done more than a day trip.
The journey will be about 2,000 km long. I expect to take it at variable pace,
covering a good distance on some days, and enjoying the local attractions on
others. Read my blog to stay up to date!
Follow the links on the left... but first bookmark this page - it will be updated
as the trip goes along.
