Eurotrek Bike Across Europe

This trip of a lifetime involved biking from Rome, through Italy, across the Alps, across Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria, and Southern Germany, following the Rhine through France and Germany to the Netherlands and Belgium, then across to the French coast of Normandy, and then finally to Paris.

We biked over 2,600 miles in 66 days, staying in hostels, camp sites, and hotels along the way.  It was amazing to see the entire countryside and link up between all of the major tourist destinations.  Our perspective of the culture was much more pure than that of a typical tourist.
