Danube Bike Path - A bike tour to all the family
by Augusto Lemos, tour started 2008, submitted 30 June 2011
language: pt

Danube river is 2.900 km length, it crosses eight countries and it flows into Black sea. The bike path that follows the river is Europe's most famous and most loved bike trip! Along the way there's a unique natural, cultural and historical richness. Furthermore, the bike path has a lot of infrastructures designed for cyclists and you can chose between north or south bank of the river.

Probably, there aren't many places in the world where travel by bike can be so pleasant and so easy! And where you can enjoy so much the landscape and places to visit.

This trip which I describe was done between Passau (in Germany) and Bratislava, via Vienna.

Lake Constance & Silvretta
by Iris Mueck, tour started June 2011, submitted 16 June 2011

We have missed that tour (until now). Lake Constance in combination with the Silvretta climb from the Montafon valley. So, we did it.

The lake Constance round trip is a very busy area for bicyclists. Better NOT to go on the vacation period. You will find all kind of sport activities (and nervous car drivers, particular the professional drivers, like bus and taxi cabs). But families with children can cause some more unexpected stop. Expect the unexpected!

Silvretta looks like a total different world. Not so many bicyclists (too steep & too long). But a very good and rather new bike path from Feldkirch to Bludenz, and the very standard‚ one from Bludenz up to Gaschurn.

We have chosen the Silvrettta as a sort of training in order to check our shape for the planned Sella Ronda tour and the Stilfser Joch tour. Enjoy the pictures on our report. Good luck to all the followers!

From Amsterdam to Brugges
Under the sea level, by bicycle

This was a travel I made in 2008, from Amsterdam to Brugges. This trip was perfect to understand how Holland manages space to give priority for bicycles. We also could count the windmills that were appearing on the way, and fell small near the huge dykes. And, finally, we felt (on the legs) that Holland is really flat.

Cycling the Danube from Passau to Vienna
by Suzanne Gibson, tour started April 2011, submitted 9 May 2011
Europe: Germany, Austria

The first tour of the season - and it was something special. Janos and I decided to get e-bikes. Read my journal to see how we felt about admitting to the limitations our age is imposing and what touring is like with a little help. We chose the choicest morsel of the Danube for our maiden voyage and were lucky with the weather.

MTB tour of the Ukrainian Carpathian Mountains
by I.P., tour started August 2011, submitted 30 April 2011
Europe: Ukraine

A mountain bike ride along and across the Ukrainian part of the Carpathian Mountains from the Ukraine-Poland border to the Ukraine-Romania border. The route is approximately 500 km long. It is by no means an ''extreme'' tour (most probably it can be described as ''moderately challenging''). The main purpose of this ride is to map out and document a through-trail that uses forest roads, jeep roads, local dirt roads, and low-traffic local roads where other options are not available.

Jerry's Alps Tour 2010
by Jerry Nilson, tour started 2010, submitted 17 April 2011

After yet another accident (hit by a car on the downhill and hospitalised with 5 ribs broken at many places, whole in one lung, head concussion, etc.), I had one training ride in two months before leaving for this year's Alps Tour. The tour was, however, very successful and I had a record number of height metres in one day (8272m) on the 277 km ride of the Monte Grappa Challenge. The weather was lovely throughout even if a bit too hot many times. Great places were visited, but I had problems with photos and then dropped my camera on the ground and only had iPhone photos for the second half.

Rediscovering the Portuguese Coast
by Augusto Lemos, tour started 2007, submitted 31 March 2011
Europe: Portugal
language: pt

Trip made in 2007 from Oporto to Lagos: 663 kms cycling and discovering the Portuguese coast.

We have a fantastic climate, beautiful landscapes, tasty meals... If the Portuguese coast was provided with a bike path in its totality, it could become one of the best cycle-tourist itineraries of summer.

Anyway, I promise you: if you try it, you‚ll want to repeat it!

ciclosinfonia nella terra di A. Salieri
by Fernando Da Re, tour started April 2011, submitted 28 March 2011
Europe: Italy
language: it

Seconda parte.

Il percorso porta su terre di confine della Bassa Veronese, fino a poco tempo fa dimenticate dai più, fuori rotta per il turismo (se si escludono alcuni siti). Gli elementi di attrazione non mancano. Il tono dimesso delle strade e delle abitazioni, la semplicità della gente, l'assenza di grande arterie di traffico non ci devono tenere lontani da questa porzione di provincia, tranquillamente visitabile ''su due ruote'', che offre paesaggio e arte.

BicycleTOURing in the Pyrenées II. (France, Spain)
by Györgyi Gábor, tour started July 2010, submitted 9 March 2011
Europe: France, Spain, Andorra
language: en, hu

In 2010 my bicycletour went back to the Pyrenées to collect another paved roads going above 2000 m, to have all of them. By its start I cycled up to Mont Ventoux on its four different ascents in the same day to have the Galerien version of the Club des Cinglés du Mont Ventoux.

I saw 3 times the Tour de France: they were great feelings, unforgettable memories. I climbed legendary Tour de France climbs, like Col de Peyresourde, Aspin, Luz Ardiden, Aubisque, Pla d’Adet, Col d’Azet, etc. In Spain I was amazed by the huge rockwalls of the Ordesa canyon and the region of that and found wonderful (and one of the most beautiful roads) the East side of the Coll de Fanlo. In Spain with other ones I visited Cerler, Boi Taüll, a hardly known, but wonderful road to Presa L’lauset, then in Andorra 3 roads: one of them the legendary and nice Arcalis. I visited calm ascents like the idyllic valley of Lac Bouillouses and valley of Puigmal. After climbing Vallter I finished my tour in Barcelona.

The bicycletour was totally 2368 kms + 42996 m heightdifference.

Ciclosinfonia nella terra di Antoni Salieri
by Fernando Da Re, tour started October 2010, submitted 24 February 2011
Europe: Italy
language: it

Il percorso porta a scoprire la cosiddetta Bassa Veronese con il suo fascino discreto e melanconico. Richiama il rapporto fra uomo, terra ed acqua che da sempre convivono.

Lontano dai grandi centri del traffico, la natura si offre al visitatore lento, colorata in primavera, sonnacchiosa nell'afa estiva, avvolta nei colori sgargianti dell'autunno, sfumata e fiabesca tra le nebbie e le galaverne invernali. Percorso facile tutto in pianura, in parte sterrato, ma con fondo in buone condizioni.

Fahrradweltreise ''Reise zum Horizont''

language: de, en, es

Die Reise zum Horizont war ein Traum, eine verrueckte Idee. Heute ist sie Wirklichkeit, eine bewusste Entscheidung, eine Weltreise mit dem Fahrrad. Am 15. Maerz 2009 in Oldenburg (Deutschland) gestartet, ist das Ziel die ''weite'' Welt. Mit dem Anspruch, den Weg weitgehend mit dem Fahrrad zurueckzulegen, ist es ein Erfahren fremder Laender und Kulturen, auch bzw. besonders jenseits klassischer Touristenziele.

Part 3: From Trondheim to Larvik. National Cycle Route 9 and the NSCR.
by Stan Williams, tour started August 2008, submitted 10 February 2011
Europe: Norway

Excerpt from Day 25: Græsli to Røroswildlife.

We noticed some curious things about reindeer. Firstly although there was nothing to stop the reindeer from walking off the road and onto the tundra it chose to stay on the road. As it moved along the road its legs looked like (Damae's term) egg beaters all flailing in different directions. It looked like an unfeasibly ungainly animal that was testing the limits of Darwin's theory. However, even more suprisingly, once it finally found its way to the rough undulating tundra it moved with astonishing ease and grace. The head and body just seemed to glide across the landscape on top of those big hooves.

National Cycle Route 9 was an unknown quantity for us in 2008. There were no travelogues to be found of the whole route, nor any guide books. Armed with some home made maps we set off, boldly, from Trondheim. It was another route of contrasts, from the majestic to the banal with some surprises along the way, including a long ferry down Lake Femund.

The travelogue contains the story of each day's cycle with pictures and videos, a gallery, route and map information and trip statistics.

Part 2: From Florø to Trondheim - National Cycle Route 1
by Stan Williams, tour started August 2008, submitted 10 February 2011
Europe: Norway

Excerpt from Day 12: Florø to Barmen - getting going

All was quiet when we awoke. There was no sign of the Polish tradesmen nor their vans and we hadn't heard them leave. The sun was shining and the tent covered in dew. It was going to be another lovely day. It was also just a little exciting to be back to the coast of Norway and a part of it we'd not been to yet. We realised too that now we were following the coast our rate of progress would be determined not just by how much energy we had. For instead of following river valleys we were now cutting across the ends of fjords and hopping from island to peninsula and back which meant we would be at the mercy of ferry timetables.

The coast route, part of which forms the NSCR in Southern Norway, carries on past Bergen. We chose to follow it up to Trondheim and were treated each day to beautiful scenery, skies and some special places. Not to mention some challenging cycling.

Part 1: From Kristiansand to Florø - National Cycle Route 3
by Stan Williams, tour started July 2008, submitted 10 February 2011
Europe: Norway

Excerpt from Day 5: Haukeli to Røldal - going over Vågslid tunnel.

Looking at the old road we briefly entertained the idea of staying on the main road and cycling through the tunnel. The old road in contrast climbed sharply so it was tempting to take the main road. However we were following the route 3 so it was now time for a real challenge.

After packing in and gathering our energies that is exactly what we got. The further we climbed the more our muscles protested, our heart rates soared and the sound of the main road waned until it was no longer to be heard. It was the challenge of being a cyclist once more, alone in a landscape just you and the hill: the sound of your breath, the wind and the noise of the bike underneath you.

National Cycle Route 3 is a challenging and rewarding route, with several major climbs and varied landscape. We followed it to Førde where we headed out to Florø on the coast to start part two of the trip.

The travelogue contains the story of each day's cycle with pictures, a gallery, route and map information and trip statistics.

E come foglia cadente sospinta dal vento e che troverà dimora dopo lento girovagare, così senza meta può essere anche l'incontro della bicicletta con questo territorio. Di qua o di là, sul piano o sul pendio, in discesa o lungo il fiume, liberamente il cicloturista, trova emozioni nel lento procedere. La bicicletta disegna le sue evoluzioni e lungo il fluire delle linee, le ruote incrociano i liberi pensieri.

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.
