by touring-bicycle

I’ve been bicycle touring throughout Europe for nearly 4 months now and I’m having a blast! (See the latest pictures right here.) However I’ve nonetheless bought an extended solution to go. So right now, somewhat than let you know about the place I’ve been over the previous 4 months and the experiences I’ve had alongside the way in which, I assumed I’d take a second to indicate you the place I’m planning to go sooner or later.

The general plan for September, October and November is to cycle from my present location in Istanbul, Turkey and experience all the way in which to Krakow, Poland whereas crossing via Bulgaria, Romania, Moldova and the Ukraine.

It must be famous, nevertheless, that I gained’t be biking your complete time. As a substitute, I’m breaking my travels by bike into 4 main segments. As you will note in only a second, every of those 4 segments of the journey consists of a interval of motorbike touring adopted by a interval of relaxation.

Istanbul, Turkey – Varna, Bulgaria

The primary leg of the journey is a 10-day, 500 km bike experience from Istanbul, Turkey to Varna, Bulgaria.

Getting out of Istanbul goes to be a nightmare and can most likely take a number of hours. I’ll be scorching, sweaty and considerably frightened for my life (the visitors here’s a little scary at instances). However as soon as I make it outdoors the town limits, the automobile visitors ought to die down a bit and I can get pleasure from myself on the bike.

I’ll experience north out of Istanbul for a number of days earlier than crossing into Bulgaria and making my solution to the coast of the Black Sea. Biking up the coast, I’ll experience via the beach-side metropolis of Burgas earlier than arriving in Varna – the primary of 4 scheduled relaxation stops.

I’ve rented an condominium in Varna (due to the web site at for eight nights… and whereas I’m there I plan to see the town, do some pc work and perhaps (simply perhaps) spend somewhat little bit of time on the seaside. I’m critically not a seaside particular person, so whereas the general public in Varna may be there to chill out within the solar and play within the water, I could also be off working round within the close by mountains or one thing. We are going to see!

Varna, Bulgaria – Brasov, Romania

After eight nights in Varna I’ll depart the Black Sea and cycle inland towards the middle of Romania. I could determine to chop via Bucharest, the Romanian capital, but when I do, I gained’t be there for very lengthy. My plan is to go across the metropolis (or perhaps even minimize straight via it) earlier than heading north into the mountains and biking in the direction of the tiny city of Brasov.

As soon as in Brasov, I plan to take the second of 4 scheduled breaks. I’ve already rented an condominium within the metropolis (once more from, so I do know that I’ll be there for 11 nights. Throughout this time I will probably be working, resting and using my bicycle round to close by sights – corresponding to “Dracula’s Fort,” which is just 30 kilometers away from the place I will probably be staying.

Brasov, Romania – Ternopil, Ukraine

After my time in Brasov involves and finish, I’ll hit the highway once more for the third leg of my japanese European bike tour. This a part of my travels will take me throughout north-eastern Romania and into Moldova. I’ll spend a day or two in Moldova’s capital metropolis of Chisinau after which cross via a small part of Transnistria earlier than getting into the Ukraine.

I’m wanting ahead to my time within the Ukraine and I hope the climate in mid-October will probably be good for biking. Fingers crossed!

To be trustworthy, I don’t actually know the place I’m going to go in Ukraine or the place I will probably be staying. I would go east towards Odessa. I would head north towards the capital in Kiev. I would simply hand around in the western woods close to Poland and Hungry? I don’t actually know! As a placeholder for the second, nevertheless, I’ve designated the town of Ternopil as my third resting place, the place I’ll as soon as once more hire an condominium, get some sleep, experience my bike and perform a little pc work whereas I’m there.

Ternopil, Ukraine – Krakow, Poland

Lastly, someday across the starting of November, I’ll depart my rented condominium within the metropolis of Ternopil (or wherever I occur to be in Ukraine) and cycle for about one week to Krakow, Poland. This portion of my bike tour is the shortest leg of the journey over the following three months – solely 460 kilometers. That mentioned, it’s going to be November once I do that and I count on it to be chilly, chilly, chilly.

I don’t wish to be biking round Poland within the wintertime, so the plan is to hire one other condominium in Krakow, Poland and to make use of that condominium as my dwelling base whereas visiting another components of the nation between November ninth and December tenth. And that, for probably the most half, is my plan for the following 3-4 months.

As you’ll be able to see, I’ve taken what can be a considerable quantity of using (going from Istanbul, Turkey to Krakow, Poland) and damaged it up into 4 main sections – every part consisting of a interval of biking and a interval of relaxation in a rented condominium.

Want me luck… and make sure you comply with my updates from the highway by liking Bicycle Touring Professional on Fb and by ceaselessly trying out my journey pictures right here at
