UK eastern route

This is the route marked with red dots on the UK overview map. It is a bit too long and meandering, especially in the northern section, so corners could probably be cut to save time. The alternative route from moffat to hethersgill< is an attempt to cut one of these corners, but this must be considered carefully if steep hills provbe to be a problem. The eastern route crosses the pennines roughly along the course of Hadrians wall, and then heads south to the east of the pennines along the vale of york.
The western route branches off at Hethersgill and follows the western side the pennines south from the English border

Mainland Europe overview

Europe
Red dots indicate actual planned route. The route can either start in Boulogne or by going south from zeebrugge (purple dots). The Boulogne route is easier, and avoids major built up areas. Heading east from Zeebrugge or rotterdam goes through the Rhineland which is heavily developed and urbanised, so not a good idea.
