I particularly enjoy the mention of the carefully packed panniers, and yet the rest of the article is littered with references to what he forgot to bring and what he meant to leave behind.  Sounds like most of the backpacking trips I've planned.

With the resumption of the Cold War, maybe Russia will drop enough sonar buoys so that a man can bike from Scotland to Iceland without getting his feet wet.

"How to bicycle in the UK, ride the ferry to Amsterdam, bicycle from the Netherlands through Denmark, ride the ferry to the Faroe Islands, bicycle some more, ride the ferry to Iceland, and then bicycle in Iceland" isn't quite as catchy a title, I'll admit.

Yeah, does it really count as a "bicycle ride" if you spend more than half the trip on a ferry?

I thought it was supposed to be a walking holiday in Iceland, that also includes writing poetry with your "best bud" Tarquin.

The trip was provided by Visit Denmark.

Makes sense since the whole article is about the portion he biked through Denmark. But I guess "biking through Denmark" wasn't click-baity enough?

I really do want to visit Denmark though. It looks beautiful.

Only if you ride around the deck the whole time

It does if you stay on the bike, because technically the road is moving.

You could bicycle back and forth on the ferry.

I think if you just ride from one end of the ferry to the other it counts
