2011 Daily Stats

This page covers our 2011 touring which took us from the UK, across Europe following the rivers Loire & Danube from the Atlantic Ocean to the Black Sea (on EuroVelo Route-6) and then on into Ukraine, Crimea and then to Russia where we finished up in late October and then flew back to the UK. We passed through England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Switzerland (briefly), Germany, Austria, (then slight detour to Czech Republic, Poland & back to Czech Republic) Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Moldova (for 3kms), Ukraine, Crimea, and then southern Russia. Chronologically, the page reads from the bottom up.
