Short Cycling Guides to Everywhere in Europe and Nearby

NEWS! I've had enough of hiding from COVID and so, from October 11th, I'm back on my travels again, this time attempting an experimental cycle ride from northern England to the south of Spain WITHOUT A MAP OR COMPASS (and not cheating by sticking to the coast or using a previous route or anything). I'll navigate by the sun, if I can see it, and other natural features if I can't (natural features that, erm, I've yet to learn about, but don't worry, I've got a book to teach me along the way). You can find more details on my Primrose-Smith.com site and follow my ride and find out the places I've visited (even if I won't know where those places actually are) on my Europe By Bicycle Facebook page.

This ride's for charity. Samaritans help those who are lost in a different sort of way, an especially useful service for those suffering during these difficult times. If you want to be lovely and donate to them, please visit my JustGiving page.
