    Dear cycle friends,
    I am planning to cycle from London / Brighton to Berlin this summer. Dates aren't set in stone yet but I am aiming for July / August. At the moment I don't even have a bike that works properly. I used to go on cycling holidays with approx 50 miles a day (80km) for two weeks largely on flat terrain. I do some running (half marathon) and gym, so have some basic fitness level but am by no means a professional or very sporty cyclist. I was aiming for 50 miles a day but will take it day by day, about three weeks in total. I want to be flexible and not having pre-booked all accommodation. I don't mind camping but would like to have a regular bed and shower too. I think I am not very fuzzy when it comes to food - so am happy preparing some sandwiches but I would also want to enjoy local foods along the way. I am a 31 year old and ideally look for a cycling partner(s) of a similar age. Is anyone keen to join me?
    Look forward to hearing from you.
    Enjoy the spring
    Mareike

    That's almost 1000 km! That would be 12/13 days for 80 km a day, and, since you have done it before, I do not think it should cause you any difficulties, given that you have done it before. Best of luck!
