Primavera en Andalusia
by Blanche, tour started May 2009, submitted 19 August 2009

Primavera (spanisch for spring) with our bicycles in lusciuos green Andalusia. Amazing how many flowers we saw and how quiet it gets if your off the beaten tracks. We crossed the Sierra Nevada, Sierra de Segura and the Sierra the Carzorla. Wonderful! We slept in b&b's but most of the time we camped on campings an also in the wild. Enjoy the video-report.

Across North America on a Yellow submarine
by Igor Kovse, tour started July 2009, submitted 18 August 2009

The lack of traffic brings wildlife closer to the road. He sees two cranes, some kind of partridge with a crest on its head, a fox and a strange black creature the size of a big cat with long fat tail (a wolverine maybe?). There is also a bird who sings refrain 'We all live in a yellow submarine'. This becomes a hit for the rest of the tour, especially the beginning 'In the toooown, where I was boooorn, lived a maaaaan, who sailed the seeeeeas', as this is all Mr. Iik can remember from the song.

My pedalled globe tour (part 1): Las Americas
by Christian Bomio, tour started May 2007, submitted 24 July 2009

In May 2007 I've started a round-the-world bicycle tour. This is the first part of this journey which began in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska going south through Canada, USA, Mexico and Central America. After one year my wheels were in Colombia to begin riding around South America (Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina) in order to reached Ushuaia at the end of the world in Tierra del Fuego by end of 2009.

In Bolivia following the railway line sometimes is better then the dirt roads.
Cycle across France - coast to coast - St Malo to Sete
by Liz Hibert, tour started May 2008, submitted 17 July 2009

Three fledgling cyclists, Liz, Nix and Mal, pimp their £400 bikes and invest in wooly jumpers to cycle across France coast to coast from St Malo on the English Channel to Sete on the Med. 3 bods, 3 bikes, 14 days cycling, 2 days resting, 1100 km, 700 miles and 0 punctures!

What follows is the journal of the ride seen from our saddles. It hopes to be informative to those who dare, and reflective for those who like the highs and lows of the human story. Each day has a detailed google map of the route we took, pics, contact details of the place we stayed, and of course the journals of Liz, Mal and Nix. Oh and when we calculate our daily speed we're basing it on the length of the complete day with our breaks - this was a challenge with no time for long lunches or relaxing strolls on cycling days.

Cycling to Santiago de Compostela
by Tim Devereux, tour started June 2002, submitted 24 June 2009

In the first week of June 2002, I cycled with my brother on a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. He started from Le Puy, France, and after he'd been on the road for 750 miles, and two weeks, I met him at Sahagun, near Leon, Spain, to cycle the remaining 250 miles to Santiago. This is an account of my journey, and the preparations for it. I have gone into detail about some aspects, which may help anyone else travelling the route.

The journey was to be a pilgrimage, so as well as preparing the bike, and getting myself physically fit, I felt I needed some spiritual preparation. My parish, St Joseph's, Pudsey, was running an Open Retreat in Lent, where instead of going away for a retreat for a day or a weekend, you go for a couple of hours, once a week, for six weeks. I found this period of prayer and reflection very helpful; over the weeks, the support of other members of group was most welcome.

London to Athens 4 kids in poverty
by Craig Shipton, tour started July 2009, submitted 4 June 2009

25,000 children die each day mainly from preventable causes. These children are not dying from incurable diseases or causes. These children are dying from diarrhea, pneumonia, measles and malaria - things that cost pennies to treat or prevent.

My aim is to raise £25,000 by riding 4,000 kilometres from London to Athens with an average of 25,000 spins of my legs per day.

A simple life on a beautiful world... and on a bicycle
by Hervé Neukomm, tour started September 2004, submitted 1 June 2009
language: en, fr, es, pt

I left home in September 2004. I was supposed to cycle to Tibet in 7-8 months. Until now, I never reached Tibet and I'm still on the road. A cold winter in Turkey make me change my itinery and then my travel's philosophy. I decided that the performance was not that important but the road itself brings me everything. In almost a total of 2 years where I worked as a safari tour guide in Namibia, I had enough money to continue and live the dream further and further. Soon, I will attempt to buy a boat in Amazonia and turn it into a bicyle-boat to cross the Amazonas on its bigest highways: the rivers! This tour is still in process and I will keep it updated on my website. nature, dirt roads, cultures and wildlife lover..

Touring in Tuscany
by Suzanne Gibson, tour started April 2009, submitted 30 May 2009

A leisurely tour in Tuscany, just two weeks but time enough for a flirt with its hills without getting too involved. We have fun cycling the streets of Florence, Pisa and Lucca, take our time visiting Medici villas and Renaissance gardens and get lovely views of the Tuscan countryside in the spring.

An Easter Tour in Franconia, Germany
by Suzanne Gibson, tour started April 2009, submitted 30 May 2009

Our first tour of the season takes us to Franconia. Franconia? Sounds like a place from a Marx Brothers film. Remember ``Duck Soup'' and the land of Freedonia? On the German map it's called Franken and is a wonderful place to cycle in the pre-Easter season, if the weather is right. And it was. The countryside was just turning green and the villages were decorated with beautifully crafted, traditional Easter wreaths. We cycled from Nuremberg to Heidelberg and then followed the Altmühl Bike Path to Kelheim.

Central Spain by ('bent) Bike
by Wayne Joerding, tour started May 1999, submitted 18 May 2009

I had a wonderful time, everywhere I went the people were friendly, the drivers reasonably considerate, and the touring spectacular. Why the Extremadura? The Extremadura is a very interesting part of Spain for any American because the people in Extremadura have had such a profound impact on the history and development of America. It turns out that the two most famous (or infamous) conquistadors, Pizzaro and Cortez, both hail from the Extremadura. Many other Extremadurans joined them in the conquest of central and south America by the Spanish. Why? During the early 1500's, the Extramadura was a relatively undeveloped part of Spain, filled with minor nobility and controlled by absentee landlords. There were few prospects for a second or third son growing up in this region, and it was a tough neighborhood. The region had long been a contested area in the wars between the Moors and the Spaniards, it was dotted with walled towns, and inhabited by enduring people accustomed to hardship and violence. The opportunity for wealth and fame in the Americas was a magnet for aggressive young men who had few prospects for inheritance and were well trained to fight for what they wanted. Some of them did achieve wealth and fame, very few of them died peacefully in their bed.

Athens to Venice on pastry and pasta
by Wayne Joerding, tour started May 2001, submitted 18 May 2009

Cycling in Greece and Italy enabled us to see some of the most historic and scenically beautiful places of Europe, from ancient to modern. This online journal documents a cycle trip from Athens, across the Peloponnese, and up the Italian boot. We climbed steep mountains, sped down the other side, sweated out the humidity of south Italy, struggled our way up to Gubbio, and enjoyed deserted resorts on the Italian coast. The food was the best, the scenery spectacular, and the drivers courteous.

The Pyrenees before Medicare
by Ben Elderd and Beth Elderd, tour started June 2008, submitted 7 May 2009

It's amazing how time flies. It seems like just the other day that our fathers were taking the training wheels off our first bikes and now we've been informed that our subscription to AARP needs renewing. On top of that we get more advertisements for Medicare drug plans than we get catalogs from the Colorado Cyclist. Maybe it's time to do a Bucket List. And if it is time, the first thing on it is to cycle the Pyrenees before we're eligible for Medicare.

And that led to this tour ...

We decided to give ourselves an easy start by cycling down the West Coast of France from Bordeaux to St. Jean-de-Luz, a scenic ride through pine and fern forests, alongside sand dunes and the Atlantic Ocean.

At St. Jean-de-Luz we would take a left turn and head into the Pyrenees toward the Col de Tourmalet. After conquering or being conquered by the Pyrenees, we'd go on to Carcassone where we would make one more left turn to follow the Midi-Canal for a leisurely, and flat, ride back to Bordeaux.

Cycling from Europe to Asia
by BikeBen, tour started May 2008, submitted 5 May 2009

``On a bicycle you are forced into intimate contact with your surroundings, the grass on the side of the road, the vehicles that drive past, the farmer in the field, that damn hill under your wells, the rain on your face, the smell of the wild flowers (or the broken sewerage pipe for that matter). This interaction gives a real sense of the place, the traffic tells you what kind of things are going on in the area, tourism, logging, farming, industry etc. The constant exposure to the weather gives an astute awareness of the day to day changes, or in the case of a strong head wind, any natural feature which will give some shelter . Hungry, thirsty and tired, a warm smile and a few words (or more often hand signals) is all it takes to find a place to pitch the tent for the night, on real ground with a newly gained sense of the place after a long day in the saddle''

With a focus on photography, this site will give the viewer a real sense of life on the road as a cycle tourist.

A lonely Hungarian cyclist who has the Summers free and likes to make new advantures on his bike.

Started with his short Croatian tours, but made it always longer, and in 2005 didn't stop before the 2700th kilometer in Greece. In the following year he decided to start the real adventure, to cycle out of Europe.

2007 was the year of cycling across Canada, the headwindy way - of course :) After this 9000km trip now he is in the planning stage of the South-American tour for 2009.

Atlas mountains, Morocco
Cycle tour of High Atlas, Anti-Atlas and coastal region of Morroco
by Chris S, tour started February 2009, submitted 21 March 2009

'I stepped out of the plane and out of my comfort zone into the sunshine at Marrakech airport. I was nervous and unsure of what to expect from the first African country I'd visited.

I wasn't ready for the dusty roads and the skinny donkeys pulling those heavy carts. The unrendered buildings, the traffic chaos and potholes, the flat lands leading to the High Atlas mountains. My only comfort was the reassuring feel of the bike that I was riding. I felt every bit like the naive western tourist that I was.'

This is day one of a 17 day cycle tour of the High Atlas and Anti-Atlas mountains in Morocco, taking in the coast between Tiznit and Essaouira along the way....

From Oregon to the Yukon
by Benjamin Heumann, tour started 2007, submitted 11 March 2009

Two months of cycling from Portland, OR to Whitehorse, Yukon in four segments. 1) Solo- Portland, OR to Seattle WA via the Pacific Coast. 2) Solo- Victoria, BC to Cortes Islands, BC to Vancouver, BC. 3) with Nick C. and Stacy: Vancouver, BC to Port Hardy, BC via the Sunshine Coast. 4) with Nick P. Prince Rupert, BC to Whitehorse, Yukon via the Cassiar Highway.

The first three segments were very civilized with camping in state/provincial parks and beautiful summer weather (except the occasional rain storm). The final segment was 12 days of intense cycling (100+km per day), rustic camping, many, many bears, but some of the most beautiful scenery I've ever cycled.

In the spring and summer of 2008 my husband Mike and I cycled 9450 km across Canada from Victoria BC to St. John's NL. We were joined for almost all of this trip by our friend and long time cycling companion Mark.

I took a small computer and we were able to keep a blog for the entire trip. Our website is full of stories, detailed maps, pictures, and links. I hope you find it interesting.

All in all, we had a fantastic trip through a country full of stunning landscapes and wonderful, warm, welcoming people. A ride across Canada is truly one of the world's great bicycle adventures. I highly recommended it!

Shanti Shanti - The Lonely Cyclist in India and Nepal
by Erik Nomden, tour started September 2008, submitted 28 February 2009

The Old Jaipur Road is closed so we are forced to take the New Jaipur Road, which is an extraordinary busy highway. Luckily there is a service road which is much quieter. Cyclists, carriages with oxes and lots of walking people with loads of all kinds of luggage on their backs or on their heads: it is the really slow traffic that makes use of the two lane service road. In fact we are the fastest traffic on the service road. The highway itself is used by cars, buses, trucks, motorcycles, scooters and taxis and has got a minimum of six lanes on both sides. I have never seen so much traffic in one view angle. Still the traffic does not look like a complete mess. There are no dangerous situations.

Our first kilometers in Delhi are but the first of an overload of experiences on our India - Nepal journey. We will be cycling two weeks in Rajasthan, then we will go by bus and train to Varanasi from where we will be cycling to Nepal to explore the Nepal Himalayas.
