Cycling in Europe – Facts and Figures

Between the 8 July 2015 and the 20 of December of the same year (160 days) I cycled 6,500 Km (4039 miles) through 11 countries covering an average of 57 Km a day. The longest distance I cycled on a single day was 105 Km and the shortest 5 Km.

During that time I spent 3,600 euros. The average daily cost in Europe was 22.5 euros.

Eating out includes not only meals but any ready made refreshments like cakes, coffees and also those lovely beers and the end of the day whilst groceries includes buying ingredients to cook my own meals.

Communication covers the cost of SIM cards and postage to letters and parcels home and Transport are mainly ferries and a couple of train journeys. And in the accommodation heading I have included the costs of any thank you gifts I took to those that open the door of their home to me.

Nearly half of my money went on accommodation so I decided to look at that heading in a bit more detail.
