My route

A long distance
In the past I cycled a lot of long distances and I knew my body. Now I do not know that anymore. I try to drive about 150 km per day where I take a day's rest after every 5 days. This results in the enormous distance I want to cover 80 * 125 km = 10,000 km.

and a nice route
Everyone knows that feeling when you finally plan that beautiful journey. Where shall we go...
