European UniCycle 2020 – A gentle bike ride from Spain to Norway

Hello! on February 1st 2020 I’ll be setting off from the most Southerly point of continental Europe (Tarifa, Spain) and cycling North. Possibly – if everything goes OK – as far as the most Northerly point (North Cape, Norway), roughly 5000 miles away.

I’ve built the map below using some tools that I’ve recently been learning. It should update regularly with my current location, and show where I’ve cycled so far. Click the diagonal “full screen” icon below the map for a larger version.

The final chapter of my write-up for @cyclingeurope is now online: https://cyclingeurope.org/2020/05/12/paul-gentles-tarifa-to-nordkapp-2020-france-part-2/

Read about the final week of my trip, cycling from Europe's most southerly point right up to the #France / #Italy border, entering #lockdown in #Nice, and making the journey back to England via Paris and #Toulouse, after the #coronavirus finally scuppered my plans.

I had a great chat with @cyclingeurope yesterday, about my recent cycle through Spain and France, and how the trip was ultimately scuppered by The Virus.

If you'd like to listen to my meandering tales, you can hear them on Part 15 of the CyclingEurope.org podcast series - https://cyclingeurope.org/2020/03/24/the-cycling-europe-podcast-episode-015/
