Cycling from the most northern to the most southern point on the European mainland crossing different countries, cultures and sceneries. Start your journey at 24 hours daylight up in the north, end your journey at the Mediterranean Sea, with its warm sunny weather with view to the next continent, Africa.
The rules for the NorthCape-Tarifa bike adventure are simple and largely self-policed. The rules attempt to embody the spirit of self-support and fairness for all riders.
That’s the NorthCape-Tarifa bike adventure, a single-stage, unsupported, 7368km cycling adventure across Europe.
