The Plan

The Plan: Two months of unassisted cycling and camping through Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic and wherever else our legs may take us.

The Route: Starting in Brussels and flying out of Berlin are the only given at this point. We plan to cycle parts of the Flanders Cycle Route, Rhine River and the Danube River. We will also be using the EuroVelo and regional cycling routes.

Accommodation: WarmShowers website (like couchsurfing for cyclists). We are also planning on staying at campsites, backyards of friendly locals or in the wilderness.

Day 9 Houtave, Belgium to Middleburg, Netherlands -75km

It looked like hell in the morning with sideways rain pounding against the window. But an hour later, the skies cleared and we got perfect riding conditions. We headed towards the Belgium coast, Northeast to take the ferry at Breskens. Everything in Belgium is pretty easily marked on the bike paths.

As we left Belgium, I had to get my last taste of Frites with stoverij sauce (fries in steak sauce), which I salvaged only half of as we boarded the ferry for Zeeland. We saw cool canals and drawbridges almost even day, but I'll post this one because its the first I saw in action after we got to Zeeland.
