If you love cycling then you’re certainly going to want to head out on your two wheels this summer. Can you really resist hitting the road for a cycle tour? The good news is, cycling routes all across Europe have become considerably easier to navigate in the last 20 years or so, and they continue to improve. So rather than cycling on a country by country basis, you could consider conquering some of these routes: The North Sea Cycle Route This mammoth route goes through eight countries that all have coastlines touching the North Sea. Fortunately, some of the most scenic and accessible areas along the route are within the UK. The stretch in Scotland lasts around 750 miles, and goes as far as Shetland. Unfortunately, the direct connection with the next stage in Norway has been discontinued.
