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 2056 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.

The Red Island
by Erik Nomden, tour started October 2017, submitted 3 January 2018
language: en, nl

Madagascar is a unique island in every respect. Because of its geographical isolation for millions of years there is a unique and diverse flora and fauna. Besides, the people that inhabit the large island also have their own unique cultures, housing, arts and music. I have four weeks to explore the extraordinary island with Willem Hoffmans.

Various cycling routes from a base in central brittany - France
by Geoff Husband, tour started 2017, submitted 11 December 2017

Gouarec is unique as not only is it on the Nantes-Brest canal, but it is also where the V1 cycleroute crosses the canal. This gives lots of very easy and varied cycing both on and off road. The village has all you need and the whole place is very cycling orientated. The routes on this page cover very easy wobbles to some more serious rides, but all have a restaurant/bar at their turning point! Please use and share freely.

Riding on side roads to Langenlois. Lunch time at Langenlois! Continued riding on the "old wine street" (Bergstrasse Schiltern) towards Schiltern. And all the way back to Traismauer. Distance: just sweet 62 kilometers. here is my picture report. Good luck to our followers.

Bike & Hike the Ötscherland
by Iris Mueck, tour started October 2017, submitted 23 October 2017

Long term weather forecast was promising. But nature is out of control...

Starting at misty roads South of St.Pölten heading for the sun at the Ötscherland area made our hearts sing. A three days tour. Mixed: biking, hiking, wellness. Mixed: race bikes and one e-bike. Mixed characters...

The Elements - Cycling around Iceland
by Erik Nomden, tour started August 2017, submitted 5 October 2017
language: en, nl

This time a tour around Iceland is on my program, the land that looks like a divine geological experiment. The land where you actually see how the landscape is molded by the elements. Earth, water, fire and air: the elements are represented here in their most extreme manifestations. The earth that is literally torn apart by the divisive forces from the depths of the earth, the earth that is mostly bare and often more or less devoid of vegetation by the arctic temperatures and the barren climate or is completely covered by snow and ice. Water, that in falls from the sky in large quantities, flows to the ocean in majestic rivers, tumbles down in dramatic waterfalls or squits into the air as geysers. Fire bubbles continuously under the surface, but can burst into the sky at all times by one of the many volcanoes. Air is the element that I am confronted with most frequently as a cyclist, as the wind is raging over the mountains and plains of the fascinating island.

Thaya circle tour - Thayarunde
by Iris Mueck, tour started September 2017, submitted 28 September 2017

A very sunny and stable fall weather made us decide to do this tour The trail is only 111 kilometers. The interesting part is that one rides on former railroad tracks. The are in perfect condition (asphalt) and very good marked (except at Waidhofen an der Thaya). I have scanned in the road map to provide interested bicyclists sufficient information.

We just spent one day. Reason: Easy to Czech per train form Vienna and the, sorry to say, the Czech part of this trail is not interesting, nor have infrastructure, we expect. On the most Northern part of the trail, we have been riding the "Iron Curtain Trail". not really interesting, just a good sounding name and steep climbs. Most interesting the ride to Waidhofen an der Thaya (route South) and up to Waldkirchen and on the return the city of Raabs an der Thaya. We have been riding the tour clockwise, starting at Göpfritz an der Wild.

If you need more information please call the tourist-information at Zwettl / Lower Austria (phone +43 2822 54109) They will send you the map and a leaflet with sightseeing information and list of accommodations. hope you enjoy the picture report. Good luck to our followers.

Wiener Neustädter Kanaltour
by Iris Mueck, tour started September 2017, submitted 19 September 2017

This has been the end of our "Paradiesroute" tour. Our train ended at Wiener Neustadt, so it was an easy decission to add this easy going 45 kilomters. Ending in a winery. So good to review a tour with a glass of wine in hand... ;-) Moreover, we arrived "dry" - no rain at all.

By train to Wiener Neustadt. Starting at Wiener Neustadt Hauptbahnhof. Heading for Mödling and further to Brunn am Gebirge. On paved roads to Lichtenwörth, then gravel roads until Leobersdorf. Here the paved roads starts again. We followed the Channel "Wiener Neustädter Kanal" side road. Enjoy the picture report. Good luck to our followers!

Road bike tour Pinggau to Rudersdorf
by Iris Mueck, tour started September 2017, submitted 18 September 2017

First of all: the trail really exists... We thought it was a fake... All what is written in the Internet is not correct!

There are no e-bike charging stations along the route. Only at Rudersdorf we have seen one (and occupied by the local e-bike rental shop). One explanation we heard whilst our tour: the route is "young" and not everything is established...

Road bike tour Lindau - Berchtesgaden
by Iris Mueck, tour started August 2017, submitted 1 September 2017

The bicycle trail "Königsseeradweg" is very good marked. Again: expect many, many gravel roads. Expect Germany's best scenic Southern landscape (Allgäu - Bavaria). At the area Füssen / Schwangau it is very busy. Heavy traffic, too many tourists from all over the world. We have been calling at least 10 times to find a proper accommodation.

Assuming you do it without an e-bike, this tour is only for trained and experienced bicyclists, with good equipment. I have been riding with a triple gear in front and the rear sproket has been 28 teeth (should be 30!).

Good luck to our followers.
