North Sea Cycle Route suggestions
« on: May 14, 2015, 10:12:08 am »
My husband and I will be cycling some of the North Sea Cycle Route in July and August. We will begin in Edinburgh, UK, and head south to the ferry from Harwich to Hook of Holland, then continuing north on the route into Denmark, ending in Copenhagen. Has anyone ridden this route lately, especially the UK section? Any advice on the route, its markings, places to camp, etc?  Appreciate suggestions and advice, thanks!

Would guess you've consulted the SUSTRANS site

The Northumberland part is a highlight. There are campsites, and the castles and beaches are some of the best in the UK. It's also stuffed with tearooms.
Take time to look at Bamburgh castle and Dunstanburgh castle http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/dunstanburgh-castle/ It's an hour walk past the golf course, but well worth it

Further south I can't help I'm afraid
