Trento Bike Pages

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 2089 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.
Tips: General bicycling information: bicycle maintenance, forum sites, packing lists, etc.

Feel free to link to the Trento Bike Pages. Be aware that the report directories are automatically generated, and URLs may shift.

Tour of North Wales
by Richard Evans, tour started September 2020, submitted 18 September 2020

I had planned to tour from Grenoble this year, taking in Mont Ventoux along the way. Covid ruled that out. I was still keen, however, to get a trip in, all the more so given the limits that have applied. I opted in the end for Wales.

This was a very enjoyable trip, with some breathtaking scenery, and some genuinely interesting towns. The trip took in long climbs, high passes and coastal roads. The variable weather and the costs in the UK are off-putting but in a year with constrained choices, this proved a memorable trip.

Training Presence at Nordkapp
by Igor Kovse, tour started August 2018, submitted 23 January 2020

On the sea shore I found a middle sized fresh fish which I cut to pieces and eat raw as a sushi. The fish was a remarkable catch, like the one in Hemingway?s ?Old man and the sea?. The fish was a part of my scavenging routine. It started with a half of the sandwich which I found in the garbage box at the airport of Tromsø continued with a piece of cheese found near the toilet in one roadside rest-area. If I'd taken scavenging seriously, it could fulfill all my caloric needs.

In bicicletta da Klaipeda (Lituania) a Danzica (Polonia) attraverso Kaliningrad. Terza parteparte
by Fernando Da Re, tour started June 2019, submitted 2 December 2019
language: it

Essere di nuovo sul suolo europeo non fu un sollievo neppure una liberazione. Eravamo partiti per visitare questa parte di Russia e nonostante l’idea dei giorni precedenti che ci conduceva a pensare che il programma fosse stato al di sotto delle aspettative, stavamo maturando la sofferenza di aver terminato un programma piacevole, senza seccature fastidiose e con sufficienti particolari da ricordare.

In this last page we describe the itinerary through Frombork, and the arrival in Gdansk, a surprisingly beautiful city.

Vienna's critical mass 2019
by Iris Mueck, tour started October 2019, submitted 20 October 2019

Participants: Heide, a very brave bicyclist; Iris, the tired bicyclist

Vienna's critical mass took place October 18th 2019. Assembly 17:00, Start 18:00. My ride, about 20 kilometers. As usual a high number of participants. Meanwhile the local police is good prepared and directs the riders safe throughout Vienna's roads. It reminds me on the city tours I have been riding in the US. Per example "Le tour de San Francisco". Iris, the tired bicyclist has got a hit from destiny: Parkinson disease. Riding under pain, but forgotten when with other riders and mood is good. You will not see to many Iris blogs in future. Good luck to our followers. Enjoy the pictures.
