Cycling in France

Useful commentaries and plenty of fine photographs for their trips:

.

I woke each morning, excited as a child on Christmas morning,wondering what adventures would be unwrapped for us that day. Though we were never disappointed, there were days which stood out as particularly magnificent. The journey from Cucugnan to Lagrasse, though hard, took us along beautiful gorges and woods from where we would emerge to wonder at the amazing sights of former Cathar castles high on inaccessible hill-tops. The quiet and simple attractions of the Canal du Midi led us into the bustling pink brick city of Toulouse. The craggy and rugged mountains of the Pyrenees, full of cycling legends and fantastic views, tested our stamina over several days. Perched along a mountain side, the Cirque du Litor was a fairy-tale path between two mountain tops and a place to which I would gladly return.

Bicycling à la Française
by Barbara Leonard
Europe: France

I am an American bicyclist whose focus, since 1979, has been racing. [...] In the fall of 1996 I moved to France and in February, 1997 joined a French cyclotouring club. Except for some individual training and some rides at the velodrome, all my riding is with the club. [...] My pages provide information about French cycling organizations, the types of rides available through these organizations, and my cycling experiences as a member of a French club.

Includes direct experience on La Marmotte, Riding at Longchamp, VCL Tour du Vexin, La Randonnée de Gresivaudan, Le Reblochon, The Weekend at Auxi-le-Chateau, Levallois Criterium, Velodrome La Cipale. With an important note on Bicycles on Trains in France, 1998

You will learn about what to bring, how to pack, tips on touring and using the trains. The many interesting travelogues have insights into German culture and even a little history. If you cannot find a tour that fits your needs among the ones we describe (probably because we have not written one up yet) feel free to invent your own tour and tell us about it. The information presented here on this site is accurate but, where possible, I have injected humor. Travelogues can be boring but a little humor helps improve their readability.

Zwei Räder für's Leben (Stord, Norwegen)
Singletrack magazine
Europe: UK

A quarterly magazine aimed squarely at trail riders in the best traditions of the magazines that have been and gone. We make no apologies for taking inspiration from MTB World and Max MTB. They were great mags, full of the sort of riding that the majority of mountain bikers have adopted as their lifestyle. In fact the buzzwords 'Inspiration' and 'lifestyle' are key to the philosophy behind the magazine.

Cycling in Iceland
by Michiel Erens
Europe: Iceland

Has some beautiful photos of Icelands, great maps and descriptions of hiking trips and bicycle tours, and plenty of excellent information - a must-see if you plan to visit the country.

First the easy part: why Iceland? Because it's a country with magnificent, raw, bizarre and fascinating landscapes, unique in Europe and probably the world. A place where you can see scenery that makes you wonder what nature had in mind when it was created. But why cycling? I don't think it's the ideal way to move around in Iceland. You are less limited and vulnerable with a 4-wheel Drive. You can cover longer distances and stay drier in a bus. And you're closer to nature on foot. The first reason for me to go cycling is, that this way of transport gives a good balance between money and freedom. Renting a car costs loads of money, and you keep a distant feeling with the environment. The bus or walking limits you to the places where you can stop or go. But I have to admit, that on every cycling holiday, I also used the bus to cover long distances. And I always had some hiking days. I even did an organized one-day trip on my last vacation. You just pick the best way of transport for your goal : to see Iceland.

The weather is often mentioned as the reason not to go to Iceland. I think I've seen nearly all weathertypes there, except snow. Luckily I missed that in July1998 when it snowed in the north east. The first time I was in Iceland we had three weeks of bright sunshine. My second was pretty good, with a lot of sunshinebut also some rain. My third tour was one with a lot of dark clouds and rain. On my fourth I had a lot of mist, but it was mainly dry. And my last tour was excellent again, with only 2 days with mainly rain. My prediction for a three week holiday in the summer are

  • temperatures between 5 and 15 degrees Celcius
  • at least three days with bright, sparkling sunshine
  • at least three days with mostly rain
  • the rest of the days ever changing weather
  • at least one storm
  • and there will always be wind!

Cicloweb.it: utilità ciclistica e turismo montano
Europe: Italy
language: it

La bici è un modo per scoprire le meraviglie naturali che arricchiscono le Alpi e l' Appennino, ed è sembrato giusto presentare una finestra abbastanza ampia (in collaborazione con Apt, Pro Loco e Privati) sulle varie località trattate. La parte di utilità ciclistica raccoglie ciò che interessa ad un appassionato: recensioni sulle riviste e sui nuovi prodotti delle aziende che collaboreranno con noi, mercato dell'usato, opinioni, link per i siti delle gare ed altro ancora [...].

[P]roponiamo itinerari per conoscere e visitare i colli ed i monti del Nord Italia. La descrizione degli itinerari trascende le tecnicità dei cicloamatori professionali proprio perché vuole rivolgersi a tutti, come una guida turistica. Ma ovviamente con le note della descrizione e con l'ausilio delle mappe, disponibili ormai per metà degli itinerari proposti, anche i più ``preparati'' possono affrontare l'itinerario con tutte le notizie necessarie.

BiciVeneto
by April Pedersen Santinon
Europe: Italy

This site offers a wealth of information about cycling in Veneto.

BiciVeneto is a homage to my two greatest passions: bici *(bikes, short for biciclette), and the Veneto region of Italy, my adopted home. It's an apt combination, because contrary to the common perception, all of Italy is not cycling crazy, and there are, in fact, regions where you will not encounter many cyclists at all. The Veneto, on the other hand, is a land of generations-old cycling heritage and traditions, and bicycling in all forms is a way of life. If you ask the Veneti why this is so, they will answer that cycling is a tough sport which demands hard work, stubbornness, and sacrifice, qualities which are an integral part of their character. The Veneto is arguably the most ``cyclistic'' of Italy's 20 regions: There are an estimated 25,000 licensed riders, belonging to several federations (in a population of 4.4 million).

A massive travel site, this guy has been everywhere.

Hier finden sich einige deutschsprachige Reiseberichte von Fahrradtouren, die hoffentlich unterhaltsam und informativ sind, aber auch vielleicht die eine oder andere Anregung für Leute geben, die selber einmal so etwas machen wollen. Für englischsprachige Radtourenberichte habe ich hier auch einen Anfang gemacht, ebenso für schwedischsprachige Radtourenberichte, wobei noch ein bißchen auf norwegisch und dänisch dabei ist, aber diese drei skaninavischen Sprachen sind so ähnlich, daß man entweder alle drei ein bißchen lesen kann oder eben keine davon.

bicycle exhibition at Vienna's Museum of applied Arts
by Iris Mueck, , submitted 1 July 2013
Europe: Austria

We have been riding down to the city - by bicycle of coarse - and received a 5% discount on the entry fee :-) The museum itself has long tradition in Vienna. That's what has been found at the Internet:

The museum of applied arts Vienna has been founded in the year 1863. The building itself has been erected in the years from 1868 until 1871 by Heinrich Ferstel in cooperation with the art historian Rudolf von Eitelberger. At this time the museum bears the name of „k&k Museum für Kunst und Industrie“. As it has been the first museum of Vienna's Ringstrasse, the museum has been known as a prototypical of many art museum in Europe. In the years 1875 until 1877 a further wing has been added, which has been as well under the direction of Heinrich Ferstels. At 1907 widened the architect Ludwig Baumann the present complex to a further wing in the style of the Italian Renaissance at the side of the road 'Weisskirchnerstrasse'.

The exhibition has been combined with exhibits from the Italian artist Enzo Mark. The exhibition itself has been a sort of summery of various bicycle collections. Some interesting for me, some not. You may look at the following pictures and judge by yourself. Enjoy the pictures. Good luck to our followers!

Critical mass day Vienna 2012
by Iris Mueck, , submitted 25 June 2012
Europe: Austria

A fun tour throughout Vienna. Hello friends, we had fun by participating this event. Even, we didn't follow the dress code 'naked'...

The tour started near Vienna's 'Russian memorial monument' at Schwarzenbergplatz. Took us all the way to the 'belt street' (Gürtel). We hit the old railroad station 'Westbahnhof' and have been riding back to the town center. A fun tour, in order to promote bicycling... Even Vienna's police has been smooth like velvet. I felt like in San Francisco... Enjoy the pictures. Good luck to all our followers!
