|Tour of the Alps 2011
tour started June 2011, submitted 21 September 2011
Phil Sung and I travel the Swiss, French, Italian, and Austrian Alps, with a side trip to Germany. We were car supported for 2 weeks, and then self-supported for 2 weeks, with about a week's worth of hiking.

|Danube Bike Path - A bike tour to all the family
tour started 2008, submitted 30 June 2011
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.
|Baarn naar Praag
tour started July 2011, submitted 26 June 2011
Dutch Family with 2 kids 9 and 7 years old are going to cycle from Baarn to Prague. The journey starts 16 july.
|Lake Constance & Silvretta
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!

|Donauradweg von Passau bis Wien
tour started April 2011, submitted 15 May 2011
Wir wollen unsere mit Elektrohilfsmotoren neu aufgerüsteten Fahrräder bei einer ersten Frühlingstour testen. Wie läßt sich das mit Gepäck recht schwer gewordene Fahrrad handhaben? Wie weit kommen wir mit einer vollen Akkuladung? Welche Unterstützungstufe von den vorhandenen vieren ist für welche Wegstrecke am besten geeignet? Spannende Fragen.
|Cycling the Danube from Passau to Vienna
tour started April 2011, submitted 9 May 2011
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.

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.
|Around the Pond: 5000km on the North Sea Cycle Route on a Recumbent
tour started June 2008, submitted 11 January 2011
In 2008 I spend 3 months cycling the North Sea Cycle Route on a recumbent bike through Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Scotland and the Netherlands.
This is a day-by-day travelogue, with zoomable maps.
|Two month across West Europe on recumbent bikes
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.
The page is in German but offers a integrated translation service.
|Cycling along the Danube
tour started September 2010, submitted 14 December 2010
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.
|Braunau (A) to Budapest (H) - Innweg & Donauradweg
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)
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.

We left London in May 2010 and have so far cycled through Europe, Turkey and Iran. We are planning to continue our journey through India, South East Asia and Australia. We hope you enjoy following our tour.

|Ostfriesland Tour 2002
tour started July 2002, submitted 11 August 2010
We have been at Hamburg for a couple of days. Riding the local bike ways (Elberadweg - to Willkommhöft). With the train to Wilhelmshaven and then: Ostfriesland. Following the coast to Carolinensiehl, passing Horumersiehl and Schillig, we finally ended at Wangerooge. Wangerooge is a family place. But people are friendly, we found accommodation at the 'Westturm', an old light house. Riding back via the beautiful and quite and clean Ammerland; heading to cross the river Weser by ferry. I remember Oldenburg and surroundings.
After crossing the river Weser we made a stop at Worpswede, a city dedicated to Artists. Riding back to Hamburg we crossed over via 'Das Alte Land' - a huge garden. Full of all kind of fruits. Last stop at Harburg, directly at the river Elbe. Crossing the river Elbe by ferry, landing at Blankenese, Hamburgs high society quarter. Good luck to all the followers!
|Eifel - Mosel - Rhein - Germany's best !
tour started July 2010, submitted 2 August 2010
|Tour of Switzerland and Austria
tour started June 2010, submitted 30 July 2010
Cynthia Wong, Kekoa Proudfoot, Phil Sung, Lisa and I just returned from the Tour of the German Speaking Alps. As tours go, the statistics were unusually bad: we got in 945 miles and 88,916 feet of climbing, of which 13,879 came from 4 hikes we did in Switzerland, meaning we got in only 75,037 feet of climb on the bike. We only had 2 flat tires, both of which were caused by a bad tire blowing out on descents. We did lose almost a week to rain, and another 3 days due to a number of us (myself including) getting sick on tour.
|Spring Tour in Bavaria - Part 3
tour started May 2010, submitted 25 July 2010
We're back! It's the Main Bike Path once more. We again find time for a few days cycling along the Main, this time from Würzburg to Aschaffenburg. The weather couldn't be better for this scenic ride with picturesque towns between the Spessart and Odenwald mountain ranges.

|Crossing Europe via the EuroVelo 6
tour started May 2010, submitted 7 June 2010
After graduating from grad school, I decided it was finally time to do the trip that I had been thinking about for years--crossing europe via the EuroVelo 6. This journal is a light-hearted account of my trip. I try to include as much information as possible for other cyclists wishing to do the same trip, but I also try to make it entertaining. You can be the judge of that.
|Spring Tour in Bavaria - Part 2
tour started April 2010, submitted 13 May 2010
Beautiful spring weather and we find time for a second mini-tour. Picking up where we left off, we cycle from Bamberg to Karlstadt along the Main River and watch it expand from the original trickle to a river of respectable size. This section of the Main will take us from beer-brewing Franconia to wine-growing Franconia.
|Spring Tour in Bavaria - Part 1
tour started April 2010, submitted 13 May 2010
It's that time of year again. We are itching to get on our bikes and see nature come to life after the long winter. For our little four-day tour we choose the bike path along the Main River. We have a leisurely ride on perfect bicycle paths and country roads to Bayreuth, Kulmbach and finish in Bamberg. To reach our official starting point, we take the train from Munich to Creussen and from there pedal to the source of the Roter Main.
|A four month tour of mainland Europe by tandem
tour started April 2010, submitted 1 May 2010
A four month cycle tour by tandem, starting April 2010. The plan, if you can call it that, is to have a good time, eat lots of food and visit some eco projects along the way. We also want to cover some miles in a clean, responsible, but ultimately enjoyable, cheap and stress-free manner. What better vehicle than the bicycle could we use to achieve this?
To me, the bike is the ultimate in human transport. Someone said that human progress should have stopped after the bicycle was invented. In my opinion, it did stop. The rest has been downhill. (I know that's not true, but I thought it sounded good.)
Anyway, this is the blog of our trip. We hope you enjoy the blog and we hope we enjoy the trip. That way, we're all happy.
|Il Reno dalle sorgenti a Basilea (the Rhin from the source to Basel)
tour started August 2008, submitted 18 February 2010
Il Reno, fiume europeo per eccellenza, via d'acqua e di commercio, fonte di sostentamento e di ricchezza delle genti che da sempre si sono inseduate lungo le sue rive; oltre 1'300 chilometri molti dei quali sono diventati confini naturali degli stati che attraversa, dalla Svizzera all'Olanda passando per Francia e Germania.
Il Reno è uno dei simboli dell'Europa, le sue rive uno dei tracciati piú frequentati dai cicloviaggiatori. Questa è la prima tappa di un viaggio che intende percorrerlo tutto, dalle sue sorgenti nel cuore delle Alpi fino alla foce nel mare del nord, dai paesaggi naturali quasi incontaminati a una fra le aree industriali piú vaste del continente.
Lungo il cammino non mancherà l'occasione di visitare alcune città, alla scoperta della storia, dell'arte e della cultura d'Occidente.
La prima tappa del viaggio lungo il corso del Reno ha inizio nelle Alpi, nel cantone dei Grigioni e piú precisamente sul passo dell'Oberalp dove si trova una delle sorgenti del fiume, quella del Reno anteriore (Vorderrhein); l'altra sorgente, quella del Reno posteriore (Hinterrhein) si trova nei pressi del passo del San Bernardino.
Il fiume termina la prima parte della sua corsa nel lago di Costanza (Bodensee) a Fussach, in Germania, per poi formarsi di nuovo a Stein am Rhein (Svizzera).

For me this is the fifth year of touring and the fourth for my wife. Our site is about the cycle tours we've made through Europe. We've cycled trough nine countries so far (some several times) and hope to visit the rest in the years to come. Enjoy!
|Originally round-the-world but now much more interesting
tour started June 2007, submitted 22 January 2010
Europe, Africa, Asia: England, Holland, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Iran, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Yemen, Oman, UnitedArabEmirates
This is my travel blog of several years on the road. It started life as a round-the-world trip, but before long I realised that A-to-B cycling isn't as interesting as getting off the beaten track and really exploring a place. So since I left home I've had as much time off the bike as on it, earnt more than I've spent, learnt a new language, met an amazing girl and got married to her! Eager to travel by bike as a couple, we're currently seeing where this new dimension takes us.
I prefer to write about the way the trip affects me psychologically and about the cultural, political and historical curiousities I encounter. It's an uncomfortably personal story at times, but I think it's more interesting than reading pages of distance measurements, road conditions and visa hassles.
My creative outlet comes through photography and video which I also share on the site - I carry 6kg of camera equipment and don't regret it for a second!

|To France the Long Way - via Berlin, Grongingen (NL), Bruges (B)...
tour started June 2009, submitted 16 January 2010
The shortest way to France from Munich would be about 300 kilometers. We reached the French border after pedaling 2,300 kilometers. On a round-about route we cycled north to Berlin, west to Hamburg and Groningen in the Netherlands and south as far as Rouen in France. By then we had had enough headwinds and rain. Our Bike Fridays, folding bikes, made it possible to continue by train to southern France and finally back to Munich two months later.
|Dunkerque to Aachen - crossing Belgium and Holland en route to Germany
tour started March 2008, submitted 23 December 2009
February is always grim in England and I always dream that March will be better. The days are longer, the bulbs have come through and spring days are on their way. So we decided that March was the perfect time for the first tour of the year - in 9 days we'd cycle from Dunkerque to Germany, north through Belgium and across Holland via the polders.
This is what happened....
|ciclabile del fiume Ems da Emden a Paderborn
tour started July 2009, submitted 22 December 2009
A Emden il mare non c'è. Sembra mare l'ampio fiume Ems. Le innumerevoli imbarcazioni in movimento e in sosta tra i canali ne fanno un porto di mare. C'è l'odore che viene da ovest con il vento. A pochi chilometri, il mare del Nord, profuma di maree basse laddove le isole Frisone contendono il territorio al mare. Un mare grigio, tipico del nord, che gli amanti degli spazi senza fine gradiscono particolarmente. Dopo aver attraversato campi, canali, fattorie, questi turisti portano, per sempre, con sè l'emozione di aver visto la fine della terra. Molte di queste emozioni sono possibili solo viaggiando in bicicletta.
Quello che leggerete sono incontri e sensazioni di viaggio.
|Europe on two wheels - From Holland to Sicily and back
tour started July 2009, submitted 12 December 2009
language: en, nl
For the tenth year in a row I am doing a medium to large cycling trip. This time I will be staying in Europe. The idea is to cycle through Germany and Austria to southern Italy and Sicily and to cycle back home over Sardinia, Corsica, France and Belgium. An overall estimate shows me that it will be around six thousand to seven thousand kilometers to fully realise the plan.
|Ciclabile del fiume Weser-I^ parte
tour started July 2009, submitted 4 December 2009
Sole, splendimi fin dentro al cuore, Vento, caccia via pensieri e pene, Non v’è al mondo diletto maggiore Che andar vagando sconfinatamente.” (H. Hesse)
In Germania è pura convenzione attribuire l’inizio e la fine di una ciclabile. Esse esistono dappertutto, nascono, non muoiono, prendono nomi diversi secondo il territorio attraversato. Quando non hanno un nome segnalano una località. Ricoprono il territorio come una rete, adeguate sempre alla circolazione della bicicletta, mezzo di trasporto, preso in considerazione tanto quanto gli altri mezzi.
