The Trento Bike Pages collect bicycle tour reports, mainly for road bikes, but also mountainbikes, as well as general bicycle touring and travel information, and bicycle club and organization listings. If you plan a bicycle tour, you'll find plenty of tour reports of people who have been there before. The Trento Bike pages got started in 1995 by Andreas Caranti, and have grown from a mailing list for the Italian Trento area to cover all of Europe, and now also Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Australia. The Trento Bike Pages got a new maintainer in 2005. They are kept alive by people submitting tour reports, so please tell us about your own tours! Spread the word.
The Trento Bike Pages contain 1922 reports, organized:
|By country:||Lists most countries of the world, each linking to pages with tours and information in and about that country. Tours that go through multiple countries appear on all corresponding country pages. Tours are sorted by submission date, newest first.|
|By author:||A list of all the authors who have submitted reports to the Trento Bike Pages.|
|By date:||A list of all recent reports (added since January 2005), latest first.|

|Ötz valley (Ötztaler) bicycle marathon (I had a dream) 2010': 228 km + 5300 m
tour started August 2010, submitted 5 May 2013
In the year of 2010 I participated in the Ötz valley bicyclemarathon (228 km + 5300 m) which is one of the most prestigious bicycle marathon event in Europe. Its slogan is „I have a dream” and a lot of starters think this, me too. First I saw a report about it in the TV 17 years earlier and I hoped I would cycle it once in my life. I rode my touringbike and I carried a small videocamera with me to record the day for video.
The route starts in Austria, Tirol. Its 1st climb is Kühtai (2020 m) which ascent contains a stretch with 16% steepness. On the descent I reached 86 km/h speed. After Brennerpass the 3rd ascent was Jaufenpass / Passo Monte Giovo by pleasant sunny weather. As I reached Bad St Leonhard in time (before timelimit) I knew that the last hard climb, Passo Rombo / Timmelsjoch (250 m) would be a pleasure for me (I knew it too, had climbed earlier): enough time and unbelievable feeling on that wonderful road. I took a lot of photos and often used my videocamera and enjoyed the last climb very much, while I saw few cyclists struggling. I reached the finish with great emotions and memories: that was one of the most memorable day of my life. The travelogue contains a 28 minutes long video about the bicycle marathon.

This has been a counter visit of of our German biking friends from Hamburg. Beate, a powerful riding lady; Norbert with an E-pedelec and a very good Li-battery has been accompanying us on our 3 day tour. My daughter Anne and her boyfriend accompanied us on our first day of riding. We ended the tour by riding through the Thaya national park, as our German guests decided to continue riding back home using some popular trails in Czech Republic. I am still impressed of the performance of our guests. They have been riding the national park trail with all their heavy luggage (which I called 'stone collection').

|Kyrgyzstan mit Freundin, Zelt und Bike
, submitted 23 April 2013
"Oh, oh, Lütte, das sieht gar nicht gut aus!", hatte ich meiner Freundin zugerufen, als sie vor mir fahrend versuchte, einen Bergpass von 3200 Meter Höhe mit einer Geschwindigkeit von 0,3 km/h zu erklimmen.
Dass ein solches Tempo in einem Land mit 7 Tausender und einer gigantischen Bergkette, einem den Pass nicht wirklich näher bringt, kann man sich vorstellen...

|A folding-bike tour throughout Malmo / Sweden
tour started April 2013, submitted 20 April 2013
The basic idea of this tour originates, to combine a bicycle tour with a concert of of Mary Gauthier at Malmo. [...] Useless to say, for me as a lifelong bicyclist I have decided to take the chance and pack my Brompton folding bike and carry it with me. That's make me touring around the city of Malmo / Sweden.
To travel to Malmo, is somehow easy. I decided to take a direct flight to Copenhagen, using my free miles. Then by train to Malmo, which is nowadays just 35 minutes away from Copenhagen, if one takes the train. So far, as I know, the train passes a sub-sea tunnel, which shortens the travel time drastically down. Needless to say: I had a wonderful concert, a wonderful stay and enjoyed riding the city of Malmo.
I have never seen a 'bicycling ride city' as Malmo before, but it is in competition with Copenhagen, which seems to have people with the same habit. Language of Denmark and Sweden is somehow similar. Both countries are rather expensive. Both countries still on their original currency, the Swedish crown or the Danish crown. A foreigner needs not to change money. Everything can get paid by credit card. Really everything; even the toilet usage at the train station.
Enjoy the pictures and my report. Good luck to our followers!

The opportunity to rediscover old riverside paths, combined with fascinating stretches of rural roads through lush forested river formations and fruit crops, has resulted in the development of a proposal for a cycle path linking two main tourist valence European-established and being definition and enhancement such as right Adige River and left Po River.
