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 2095 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.

Through Kashubia with Bikerafting on Lupawa river
by Richard Löwenherz, tour started September 2020, submitted 6 November 2020
language: de

In September 2020, I spontaneously crossed northern Poland in consistently late summer weather - two weeks in pure nature with a Bikerafting section on the wild river Lupawa. As a finale I went two days offroad directly along the mostly deserted beach of Baltic Sea...

Bikerafting through the mountains of Swedisch Lapland
by Richard Löwenherz, tour started August 2020, submitted 6 November 2020
language: de

Because Russia remained closed for tourist travels in 2020, I decided to go on a Bikerafting tour in northern Sweden to enjoy there an intense wilderness adventure. Together with a good friend we took a route that would lead us off all roads deep into the "Fjälls" - paddling from lake to lake and between cycling on hiking trails. How well we can go with our heavily loaded bikes on the hiking trails, we didn't know before, it was an experiment... we learned: it was more difficult than expected, but still a special experience to cross this amazing country in such an independent and varied way.

Eastern Caucasus: Through Chechnya and Dagestan to the Caspian Sea
by Richard Löwenherz, tour started September 2019, submitted 6 November 2020
language: de

Ten years after I crossed the western Caucasus by bike, it was time to travel through the Muslim-influenced eastern part of the mountain range. The advantage of the belated completion: the autonomous republics of Chechnya and Dagestan presented themselves as relaxed travel countries, where the risk of terrorist attacks is no longer higher than in most major cities in the world...

mountain road down to Golotl
Chukotka: With Fatbike and Packraft to the end of the world...
by Richard Löwenherz, tour started July 2018, submitted 6 November 2020
language: de

Chukotka is the most northeastern tip of Russia, just across from Alaska. Completely cut off from the road system of the rest of the country and under the strict regime of the Russian border guards, this part of the planet is as difficult to travel as hardly anyone else. Four years, I fought for a special permit to travel on my own to the felt end of the world - a privilege that only a few Western individual travellers had been granted. In the summer of 2018 I got the long awaited "Yes" and the way was finally cleared for an extraordinary expedition across the unpopulated inland - from the Kolyma swamps to the Bering Sea.

North Yakutia with Fatbike: On ice roads into the Russian Arctic
by Richard Löwenherz, tour started March 2017, submitted 6 November 2020
language: de

On so-called "Zimniks", the Russian winter roads over frozen rivers, lakes and swamps that only exists a few weeks, I went into the Russian Arctic for a third time in late winter 2017. After my first tours, which took me to the Polar Urals and Nenet tundra north of the Arctic circle, this time I went through one of the coldest areas of our planet: through Yakutia in eastern Siberia - with a finale on the ice of the frozen Arctic Ocean.

night ride on frozen Arctic Ocean
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.

Ride on the way from Zatarra to Dead Sea
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.
