thread my plan is roughly
today: train to Ipswich, cycle to Shotley, tiny ferry to Harwich, find something to eat there, board massive ferry
tommorow: get off massive ferry at Hoek, cycle to Antwerp (weather looks ok) including at least one further small ferry.
Sunday: trains to Oudenaarde and bus to Kwaermont, beer & chips (with mayo) at the Tour of Flanders, bus + trains back to Antwerp
Monday: ride to Rotterdam
Tuesday: Rotterdam tourism, short ride to Hoek for overnight ferry
Wednesday: direct train home
permalink That sounds splendid
I like this.
permalink If you can work in the delta works
to the route from anterp to rotterdam i highly recommend it. though not in a headwind.. and it's a bit of a detour.

also the hague is a nice place to visit. could be good for dinner before big ferry home.
permalink hang on...
given your choice of viewing point

isn't going via rotterdam rather... out of the way. canterbury is closer.

permalink The whole cycled home from Barcelona
doesn't understand why someone would want to go for a long ride....
permalink guilty m'lord,
i was just wondering why the bus was needed.

permalink staying in a hotel in Antwerp.
Kwaremont is an (off the bike) day trip from there
