How feasible would the E4 by bike be? How long would it take?
Bicycles aren't even allowed on many sections of the E4.
>>1796062How do you know?
>>1796063I've travelled between Stockholm and Haparanda a few times.
>>1796063So? The E4 does pass through there.
>>1796072Meant for >>1796067
>>1796061impossible, sections of it are on islands.
>>1796061you can't, unless you find a ferry that goes from sitia to Pafos
>>1796156>>1796099Yeah but that's the very end of it, you could go from Greece to Portugal following that path by bike, I assume.
>>1796061Why don't you try a route specifically designed for bikes?
I'm guessing parts of the E4 are pretty hilly/mountainous and going along Alpine single trails. Also it's highly questionable whether cycling is even permitted along the entire route in various countries. If you want routes that are physically and administratively possible to cycle on, stick to cycling routes. For example in reference to this >>1796240 you could take the 11 from Athens to Belgrade, then the 6 along the Alps until Bern, then the 5 and 17 to southern France and the 8 the rest of the way to Spain.
>>1796250nevermind the 6 goes around the Alps, not along them, but my point still stands, also I think there are national level bike routes going along the Alps
>>1796240>>1796250Didn't know about this one, a mix of 8 and even 6 would be pretty neat, I'll definitely check that.I'm trying to organize a solo journey for summer and that would be epic.
>>1796240Did a bit of research and the paths aren't even fully completed, the most interesting one, the EV8, has its Balkan section in shambles. Fucking suck.
>>1796061>>1796240Just fyi these aren't "real" paths. They're a mix of anything from abandoned mountain trails to in-use motor traffic roads and everything in between that the EU conveniently relabeled, but only on their maps since you won't find these labels anywhere else really.
>>1800875I recon you're right, I tried following one of them this last weekend and after little over 15km the path was gone and trail no more. Another scam pushed by EU.
We ripped up those trails after we left the EU lmao
>>1801580>Owning the libs
>>1796061Try E45 instead.
>>179624010 is literally just>use the beach lmaoDon't trust this map one bit.
>>1796240I've done eurovelo 12 before and it was 99% signed the whole way it links together national cycle routes so you just follow the red "1" sign for most of the uk for example. Not sure about the others though
>>1802055Yeah but why would anyone go touring the UK?
>>1796062>>1801986FFS look at OPs map. It's not E4 the highway but some cycling/hiking route across southern europe also called the E4.
>>1802074Add Finland and you get the balls too.
>>17962401 is a fucking memeA big chunk doesn't exist
>>1802007I rode that with 28mm tires.After a week I would have traded my $1500 touring road bike for one of the beat up Decathlon hardtails the local youths rode while they laughed at me.
>>1801986It's good for dry skin desu
>>1796061Man what I wouldn't give to have the time to ride from Scotland to Palermo. Go through the beautiful midlands, the Normandy countryside, the Italian and french rivieras, tuscany, naples and finish up on some beachside Sicilian town like Messina where you can give props to based Nibali.Oh lads to be young again. I'd give anything to be a young man riding my mountain bike through tuscany again. Don't argue about what road to take. They all lead the right way. And you can Credit Card tour europe super easy.You're only young once guys. Do it.
>>1796061Go for E10
