Two month across West Europe on recumbent bikes
by Carsten, tour started June 2010, submitted 4 January 2011
language: de, en, fr, it, es

We are two guys from Germany, who travelled across West Europe for two months.

With our Performer High Racers, we came through nine European countries (Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Netherland) and crossed both the Pyrenees and the Alps two times each. After 9000 km we finished our tour in August and now we have completed our web page with detailed information for each stage and thousands of photos.

Provence and Languedoc Tour, 2009
by Suze, tour started May 2009, submitted 2 January 2011
Europe: France

I had long dreamed of visiting France, of seeing the southern countryside, eating what I imagined to be totally delicious food, and experiencing ancient and medieval art and architecture. I had longed to know something of an older culture than ours in Massachusetts. New England is old in the United States, but very young in the world. When I turned 60 I decided to do it, to finally visit France, and when there to travel on a cycle. I had ridden in the 1970s, but gave my Fuji ten-speed away long ago. I hadn't been on a bike since about 1980, but in August 2007, on a whim, bought a new bike and a year later rode it solo around Lake Champlain in Vermont. My husband wanted to go with me to France, so in May 2009 we rode from Avignon, France, in a looping tour of about 500 miles, mostly very flat, visiting Roman ruins and ancient cities. It was his first cycle tour ever, and so I planned an easy trip, staying in bed and breakfasts or hotels, saving time for visiting museums and historic sites. This trip went from major city to major city, with some very beautiful riding in between. It included a ride the length of the famous Canal du Midi, running from Agde to Toulouse. We traveled from Avignon to Orange, then into the Luberon, west to Arles, south to the Camargue, west again along the Mediterranean to Sète and back inland toToulouse. The journal was written after my 2010 visit to the Cévennes in France.

Lettonia: Da Riga a Jurmala
by Fernando Da Re, tour started June 2010, submitted 1 January 2011
Europe: Latvia
language: it

Quinta e ultima parte del percorso in bici di 800 km da Tallin a Riga

Non è facile attraversare la città di Riga per raggiungere Jurmala. Perfino la Esterbauer (nota casa editrice delle ciclabili d'Europa), prefigura il transito sulla strada principale a quattro corsie senza alcuna protezione per le bici. E' un vero peccato che nessuna istituzione delegata al cicloturismo consideri l'opportunità di strade alternative allungando magari un po' il percorso.

Cycling in Switzerland

Without any doubt Switzerland is a very scenic country. The lakes and the mountains are very picturesque with the sound of cow bells in the background. If you are lucky you might even hear the enormous Alpine horn!

Cycling along the Danube
by Glen and Margaret Netherwood, tour started September 2010, submitted 14 December 2010
Europe: Germany, Austria

The Danube is the second longest river in Europe. A well marked bicycle path (the Donau Radweg) follows the Danube from its source at Donaueschingen in Germany to Vienna in Austria. The path is easy cycling and there is plenty of accommodation at the many towns and villages en route. We started in Eglisau in Switzerland as Zurich is the closest large airport to Donaueschingen.

Nous sommes un couple français proche de la trentaine, ayant envie de mener une vie proche des idées de la simplicité volontaire et de la décroissance (moins de biens, plus de liens). Nous avons décidé de prendre quelques mois pour voyager en vélo tout en s'arretant sur la route pour faire du volontariat dans des fermes biologiques et sur des chantiers d'écoconstruction (WWOOF).

Nous avons traversé la France et l'Italie, et continuerons vers la Grèce puis la Turquie, avant de retourner en France, toujours en vélo (l'itinéraire n'est pas encore déterminé).

Scanuppia and other Trails in the Lago di Garda Area
by Erik Nomden, tour started October 2010, submitted 4 December 2010
Europe: Italy

The lake Garda is the mountain bike paradise of Europe and there are many roads that lead up into the mountains. Some of these roads are a challenge and some roads are a major challenge. And then there is one tremendous challenge: the Scanuppia, a concrete road that is leading upwards from Besenello to the small natural area of Scanuppia, which is the steepest ascent of Europe and maybe the steepest ascent of the World. Reports speak of gradients of 45 %. Whether it is possible to actually cycle there remains a mystery, yet there seem to be people who have made it. And so I would be able to do so myself, I try to convince myself. And while we are around now, we may just as well give it a try.

Lettonia: dal confine estone a Riga
by Fernando Da Re, tour started June 2010, submitted 1 December 2010
Europe: Latvia
language: it

Quarta parte dell'itinerario in bicicletta di 800 km da Tallin a Riga.

Da Kabli a Limbazi 95 km.

Questo tratto percorre i primi 15 km in Estonia ed entra definitivamente in Lettonia. Interesse particolare di questi ultimi chilometri in terra estone è la lunga serie di spiagge. Tra il percorso in bicicletta e le spiagge, poche centinaia di metri di bosco. Tra le principali specie arboree, anche quella del pino marittimo. Campeggi e agriturismi con spiagge chiare e mare discretamente pulito, mettono a disposizione cavalli e biciclette, luoghi per pic-nic e aree per giocare. Il biglietto di addio della terra Estone, che nei pressi di Ikla segna il confine di stato, è una vecchia scritta in ferro su un muro stinto di cemento. Una linea immaginaria perché divenuta superflua e anacronistica.

Braunau (A) to Budapest (H) - Innweg & Donauradweg
by Ant, tour started August 2008, submitted 17 November 2010

Braunau am Inn to Budapest, a wonderful 900 Km tour along the Innradweg and Donauradweg in 11 days of actual riding including loops and various visits to nearby points of interest. No reservations were made in advance to leave us the freedom of choosing where to stop. I was carrying a tent in case of sold-out locations but we never used it once.

Our plans to keep the daily stages in between 60 and 90 Km - except for a couple of stages - proved a perfect choice to maximize the journey. See this, stop there for a yummy bite accompanied by a sparkling apple juice (Apfelsaft gespritz), and find accommodation where deemed practical. ''Pension'' style places with a family bias are the perfect choice for their coziness, the hosts' kindness and the good food to discover for reasonable prices. Return from Budapest by train with our bikes.

Loop through D, NL, B & L (including Moselradweg and Rheinradweg)
by Ant, tour started August 2009, submitted 16 November 2010

This 1,210 Km (756 mi) tour took us along the Mosel and Rhine rivers into the Netherlands, proceeding then to Belgium and Luxembourg. I had prepared the route with the aid of official GPS tracks of the cycling paths that we wanted to follow. Without the hand-held type GPS, the journey would have required the use of a consistent number of maps resulting in countless wasted time for continuous consultation. Despite the cycling paths are generally signposted they are not present at every turn. At times we found that some were even pointing to the wrong direction - maybe some prankster had fun with them.

The tracklog of our entire tour has been recorded and it's available for download. To spare the hassle of changing and recharging batteries continuously, my GPS unit was powered by a small solar station placed atop the handlebar bag. Precious and amazing satellite technology that sadly turns paper maps into romantic memories, it's a luxury I came to love quite quickly.

From my home in Holland I have cycled over the Normandy Coast, the Loire Valley and the Auvergne and Cantal regions to Spain for a double coast to coast ride through the Pyrenees. First from east to west through the Spanish Pyrenees. Then from west to east through the French Pyrenees. This journey includes all the famous cols from the Tour de France but also some nice unpaved cycling routes in the Pyrenees.

Estonia: da Koguva al confine Lettone
by Fernando Da Re, tour started June 2010, submitted 10 November 2010
Europe: Estonia
language: it

Da Koguva a Parnu 120 km. Il tratto di 10 chilometri che da Koguva raggiunge il traghetto a Kuivastu è l'unica strada praticabile. Anche Ostseekusten Baltikum prevede questo tratto pur se con traffico. Il traffico si intensifica negli orari in cui il traghetto arriva o parte. In quei pochi minuti di sosta in cui vengono scaricati e imbarcati i veicoli, questi partono formando temporaneo traffico. Pochi minuti dopo la strada ritorna deserta. Per qualche tratto una linea sull'asfalto divide la circolazione auto dalle bici, ma comunque non sussiste pericolo.

Etsch Valley Bike Path - South Tyrol
by Suzanne Gibson, tour started September 2010, submitted 6 November 2010
Europe: Italy

The last tour of the season - that is if the weather cooperates. The plan is as simple as it is elegant. We take the train from Munich to Landeck in Austria. From there it is a short bus ride to Nauders near the top of the Reschen Pass and the border to Italy. That saves riding in unpleasant traffic, not to mention a hefty climb! From Reschen in South Tyrol it's downhill (almost) all the way.

Riding the Etsch Bike Path
Starting at the End of the World

Europe: France

An all-day train ride takes us from Munich to Morlaix in Brittany via Paris. The train from Paris to Morlaix doesn't take bicycles and we are again happy to have folders. Our tour starts with an abundance of rain and hills as we follow Brittany's spectacular southern coast to the Loire. From here we cycle the popular - and flat - Loire Valley Bike Path into Burgundy where the scenery gets more interesting as we ride along the Canal du Centre and Saone River. After having covered approximately 1,500 km we take the train from Dijon back to Munich.

Budapest to Corfu 2010 - Over the Balkans
by Dave Roe, tour started June 2010, submitted 27 October 2010

The Budapest to Corfu route was planned to be as diverse as we could get it. A mixture of terrain, landscape and seascape. Throw a variety of cultures into the mix and an ''off the beaten track'' feel to the trip and the result is a recipe for enjoyment.

To get us warmed up a nice, we had a comfortable flat section in Hungary. This was followed up by a gradual climb up the River Drina into the heart of the Balkans.

The big climbs started after Bajina Basta in Serbia and continued until Kolasin, a ski resort in Montenegro. A 40 mile drop off the western edge of the Balkans was enjoyed into Podgorica, the Montenegrin capital. A very picturesque section follows, to the south side of Lake Skadarsko. It is a single track road containing big steep climbs along a mountainside with fantastic views over the lake to Albania.

The route then follows the Albanian coastline down to Sarande and over to Corfu. The section after Vlore is very quiet, taking in the Logara Pass. Himare is a great stop over being a nice little resort which is unspoilt for now. Sarande is much bigger but still has it's plus points. The spare slack at the end of the tour was put to good use on Corfu.

Cévennes: Solo Cycling
by Suze, tour started May 2010, submitted 22 October 2010
Europe: France

This is a description of my nine-day solo trip, in May 2010, in the Cévennes mountains of France. The trip was mostly camping, but no cooking. My goal was to see the Cévennes, mountains full of history and culture, their geography older than the Alps or Pyrenees. There was a good mix of climbing, mountains, medieval towns, villages, rivers ... always gorgeous and fun riding, but not a very high mileage. I wanted to learn something of the area, its culture and history, without being totally exhausted. In all it was about 300 miles, about 14,000 feet of climbing. I rode from Montpellier to Albi, with a loop up the Gorge du Tarn and down the Gorge du Jonte.

Isole dell'Estonia-Hiiumaa, Saaremaa, Muhu
by Fernando Da Re, tour started June 2010, submitted 20 October 2010
Europe: Estonia
language: it

Seconda parte del ciclotour da Tallin a Riga Dal traghetto si avvicina una terra senza nessuna costruzione, solo verde di alberi, alti slanciati, fitti, regolari: Hiumaa l'isola incontaminata. Una scoperta che mette serenità e paura nello stesso tempo. Solo tu, la bicicletta e il bosco. La strada senza traffico che porta verso Kardla, capitale dell'isola, transita prima da Puhalepa, dove la chiesetta del XIII sec. mostra il singolare pulpito in pietra, poi dal paesino di Surremoisa, dove una villa sembra quasi un castello. Si percorre la ciclabile denominata Eurovelo 1. I 30 km che dividono ancora da Kardla (arrivo di questa prima giornata iniziata con il trasporto in bus delle bici fino al traghetto ad Haapsalu) sono tutti in mezzo ad una foresta di abeti e larici. La ciclabile è una stretta linea laterale a fianco della carreggiata. La pioggia che scende da quando il traghetto ha raggiunto l'isola, favorisce l'andatura sostenuta facendo passare quasi inosservato l'intatto paesaggio di questo tragitto. Nota di colore ! sono i variopinti sacchetti di nylon a protezione dei nostri calzari.

Europe: Austria

Extremly good weather called us to another late fall tour. By train to Retz and further with the 'Reblausexpress' to Drosendorf. Starting late, upon arrival at Drosendorf, we have been heading for Karlstein, whereas we had our lunch. Then we have been riding to Waidhofen an der Thaya. A hidden beauty... Continuing to Zwettel, were we had our night. Zwettel a 'silent' city. Day distance 90 kilometers only. The next morning has been frosty... As nice Zwettel was for a stay, to leave is strange: just high frequent highways The good thing: we hit the Kamptal dam in fall - a wonderful landscape picture has been our award! We have been heading for Krems. Luch at Senftenberg. At Krems we found access to the well known Danube valley bike path. We followed this way down to the suburbs of Vienna. Last stop: Greifenstein (whereas we have been entering the train again...). This days distance: 122 kilometers. Enjoy the pictures! Good luck to all the followers!

A tour to the North Country... (were the winds hit hard the border line...) Hardegg, known as Austria's 'smallest city', was worth to go...

Europe: Germany

We decided to make our honeymoon in Southern Germany at the border to Switzerland, riding our bikes from the Lake Constance (Bodensee) to the Lake Königsee. We did a one-week-tour in August 2007. The cycle route between the lakes sets out from Lindau toward the Allgäu hills. Tiny villages dot the landscape between forests and meadows. Offering a view over the Allgäu Alps, the route goes on to Füssen with its lovely houses. Passing the gorgeous Neuschwanstein Castle, Bad Tölz on the Isar, the route continues through the Upper Bavarian picture-book scenery to Lake Tegernsee and on to Lake Schliersee. The tour’s final destination is right in the heart of the Alpine countryside of the Berchtesgaden National Park: Lake Königssee is truly a crowning finale to a princely cycle tour.

My Styrkeproven
by Iris Mueck, tour started June 2000, submitted 9 September 2010
Europe: Norway

Well, I have participated this tour 4 times. [...] It is partly a race. The Norwegian teams are very strong. They do the distance of 540 kilometers in less than 14 hours, which results in an average of round 40 kilometers/hr.

There is a rather 'high' mountain to climb. The Dovrefjell mountain is only round 1.000 meters high. But remember: you start at sea level. And as all the little rivers cross the climb, you got the feeling you do this mountain three times... There is only one receipt to finish the tour: ride your own speed! Feel well. Do not burn out in strong groups. Lillehammer is key station. Only 180 kilometers left to head for Oslo. [...]

Keep in mind: the big teams ride in groups and do not like others to take advantage of the group. I learned quickly, as one of a group rider pushed me out of road. My warning 'if you do it again...', was not heard. He repeated: 'if you quarrel, we are forty, if like to can discuss it with all our tour guys...'. No way! Stay out of teams!

I spend this year my spring break in Corsica. An ideal country to test my new Cannondale bike with electric components from Bionx. (Motor, battery and display). A mountainous island, big enough to cycle around a fortnight. By train, I'll go from Zurich to Livorno. A ferry of ``corsica ferries'' will take me to Bastia. Here I begin to circle counter clockwise around Corsica. First I'm going up to Cap Corse, then via Saint Florent, Calvi, Porto, Ajaccio and Sarténe to Bonifatio, the very south of the island.
