Marseille to Munich by bike

It’s time to dust off this blog and start writing about my upcoming cycling journey!

I guess it makes sense to start with an overview of the trip. On Friday night, we’ll take a train to Paris and sleep near the train station. Early the next morning, I’ll give Bert a whirlwind tour of Paris by bike, ending at the Gare de Lyon, where we’ll take the train to Marseille!

The route

The trip will then be officially underway. We’ll continue for about 80km that day, always along the coast. Over the next few days, we’ll make our way along the Mediterranean to Genoa. Then it’s over the Apennines and onward toward Milan. We’re taking the Splügen Pass, going through Liechtenstein, coming down around Lake Constance, and heading over to Schloß Neuschwanstein – then it’s up to Munich!

In all, we will pass through seven countries: France, Monaco, Italy, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria, and Germany and do over 1200km, including a 2000m Alps climb. It will be demanding and exciting. I can’t wait.

Stay tuned for more planning and a record of my journey!
