BICYCLING THE ATLANTIC COAST

2800 Miles from Florida to Maine

Book description

Friedrich Müntjes loves cycling.

With his wife Carola he has already made several excellent tours in Europe. They rode over the Alps from Munich as far as Naples. Right across Switzerland and from the Baltic to Bavaria.

On retiring, at the end of 2014, Friedrich needed a new challenge. Right across the United States of America from New York to San Francisco was his first idea But he didn’t want to wait until summer. So he changed the plan at short notice and the exciting tour along the east coast began in March 2015. All alone, he completed the 2800 miles tour in 64 stages.

Friedrich Müntjes takes us with him on his journey to the most important sites of the early settlers. Old and new are strung together like a pearl necklace.

The whole stretch is available as a GPS file and the 64 stages can be downloaded individually.
