I'll be starting from Hamburg on May 23rd, heading north to Denmark. After riding/ferrying in Denmark, Sweden, and Finland, I'll plan to head south through the Baltics to Poland. I'll cross Poland - some of this may be by train - to Wroclaw, visit and ride with Robert Mink near Wroclaw, then ride into the Czech Republic and head south through Slovakia to Gyor Hungary. From Gyor, I'll head east through the Austrian Alps to Basel Switzerland. From Basel I'll head northeast through Germany, stopping to visit my daughter in Tubingen, heading for the headwater area of the Elbe river in the Czech Republic and then riding down the Elbe back to Hamburg.

My final route
I'll be starting again from Hamburg, heading for Travemunde and a ferry to Sweden. In Sweden, I'll visit relatives near Lund and then ride up the eastern coast to Uppsala. Then I need to get back down to the southern end of Sweden to take a ferry to Swinoujscie, Poland which is the north End of the Oder Radweg.
I'll ride the Oder Radweg down to Gorlitz and then head east to Jary, Poland to visit Robert Mink and his family. Then I'll ride back west to Dresden and ride up the Elbe Radweg to near Uelzen for another visit and then on to Hamburg for the end of my tour.
