Demi Tour de France
by Louis Tousignant, tour started August 2004
Europe: France

>Viewing the Pyrénées stages of the 2003 Tour de France inspired me to choose this itinerary. I knew that replicating the actual TDF stages would be much too long (as the stages are not interconnected) but at the end of the day, I rode 2,488 km which is more than 2/3 of the actual length of the Tour: 3427 km! Having said this, my general average was 82.7 km/cycling day, a very small number by TDF standards.

The general game plan for the demi tour was sketched on a map of France (1/2,000,000). The trajectory chosen as I rode was varied, never dull, grandiose in the Pyrenean cols and valleys, and sprinkled with a number of spectacular towns and cities (Bourges, Toulouse, Poitiers, Chinon, Blois, Chartres, Versailles to name only a few).

Stayed in hotels (generally 2* which is admittedly pricy!), B&B’s and in a Youth hostel (10 Euros/night). Travel can be cheap in France, even without camping. I carried 17 kg of gear.

Biking on Mallorca
by Per Löwdin, tour started June 2004
Europe: Spain

Early June 2004 we got a week free and booked a trip to Mallorca. We had been in Alcudia, on North Mallorca, twice, riding MTB and felt that we had rather exhausted the fun of the gnarly trails around Lluc, Binifaldo, Massanella, and other trails accessible from Alcudia, so we bet on bringing our road bikes and staying in South Mallorca, to see some new land.

We winded up in Illetas, a quiet but nevertheless touristic place straddling the cliffs between Palma Nova and Palma. We had a small appartement in the Illetas Club Playa.

The riding was excellent, though we found the traffic dense and dangerous. For most rides we would have to spend an hour before we were on a road in open country. Going east of Palma was not much fun as routes were poorly marked, traffic congested, with plenty of diverts and circuitous one-way streets, through one beach resort after another.

It's 2004, and my dream came true: to go on an extended cycling trip of Europe, taking in Portugal, Spain, France and the UK. I left Brisbane on January 22 for a Tasmanian ``warm-up'' trip before my BIG trip, which started on 27 February. Here are my favourite photos and some thoughts I had along the way. I hope you enjoy them...

East Prussia, Suwalki & Lithuania - A Winter Journey through Central Europe
by Karl Brodowsky, tour started November 2003
Europe: Poland, Lithuania

Within nine days including the train to the area where I am cycling and back a lot can be done. Relatively soon the decision had been made not to go to Scandinavia and so this came out to be an opportunity to see some of the eastern parts of Central Europe, for example Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland or the Baltic states. Off course I was especially interested in seeing East Prussia and its southern (Polish) parts, where my ancestors had lived. It seemed possible to combine this with a visit to Lithuania. Off course East Prussia had been known for its extremely cold winters and it is known that Lithuania is even further to the north and east, so probably at least not warmer. And November is already belonging to the winter in these areas. On the other hand I had done quite a few bicycle tours during the winter in Germany. And the real winter months in East Prussia are more like December, January and February, while November is more like the kind of winter that I know from areas further to the south and to the west. Off course it is a good idea to have a thermos can in the luggage and to fill it with hot tea or coffee. On the other hand I did took neither a tent nor a sleeping bag, but traveled with rather light luggage.

Cycling the Camino de Santiago
by Arthur Mitchell, tour started September 2003
Europe: Spain

There are a number of routes to Santiago de Compostela. The most famous - and currently most well-traveled - is the Camino Frances (or French Road). One leg begins its Spanish phase in the Pyrenees at Roncesvalles. An alternative way from France starts at Somport. Both routes from France converge at Puente La Reina. From there, a single route continues to the destination on the west coast of Spain.

Today, about 50,000 people a year make the pilgrimage. The majority (70%+) walk. Crossing Spain from the French border to Santiago de Compostela on foot takes about a month. Why do people do it? Religion. Spirituality. Culture. Or simply to take part in the river of history - to participate in something that has endured for twelve centuries. [...]

If you can find the time, do it. My pilgrimage was one of the most rewarding things I've ever done. It's a great bicycle tour. It was profoundly moving, fun, and you'll meet interesting people from all over the world.

Ultreia - Camino de Santiago by Bike
tour started September 2003
Europe: Spain
language: es, en

The Camino, or Road to Santiago, has been for a thousand years the magnetic axis of Europe, and once you experience its peculiar attraction, it will form part of your very self. It still has that millenary magic that has fascinated the millions of pilgrims who have walked its path over the centuries. You will find yourself in the truly human dimension, passing through magical towns belonging to times different to ours, with fantastic landscapes changing at every turn; and even if you start alone, as I did, you'll end up making new friends from all over the world.

Tandemtour von den Bergen in die Stadt
by Karl Brodowsky, tour started September 2003
Europe: Switzerland
language: de

Nachdem ich schon mit Heidrun eine kleine Alpentour gemacht hatte, waren nun auch meine Söhne Bernhard und Ulrich damit an der Reihe. Weil Bernhard mit seinem eigenen Fahrrad fahren würde, suchten wir uns eine Route aus, die schöne Aussichten auf die Alpen bietet, aber doch nicht die großen Pässe enthält. Merkwürdigerweise gibt es zwischen Zürich und dem Rheintal bei Sargans ein Tal, das über gar keine Paßhöhe zu verlaufen scheint, sondern zwischen den Bergen hindurch auf fast konstanter Höhe bleibt. Vom Zug aus sah dieses Tal nun auch noch immer recht schön aus und da bot es sich an, von Chur aus in dieser Richtung zu fahren. Der Ursprung dieses Tals war wohl einmal ein Gletscherverlauf im Rheintal, der sich während der Eiszeit bei Sargans teilte. Natürlich waren auch Überlegungen im Raum, vielleicht auch den einen oder anderen Paß zu überqueren, aber letztlich entschieden wir uns doch für eine einfache Strecke.

[A satellite] image [taken] just after I got back home [...] shows that there were no clouds on all the central Europe, very good for my round trip! The days before the images was likely, so I found only sun, sun and sun ! Maybe too much. In Munich the temperature was 38 degree!!!

At the Brenner Pass
Tandemtour über die Alpen
by Karl Brodowsky, tour started August 2003
Europe: Switzerland
language: de

So eine diffuse Idee war also schon geboren, irgendwie von Chur über den Oberalppaß und den Gotthardpaß nach Airolo oder so zu fahren. Der spannende Teil war nun, wie man das Tandem hinbekommt. Natürlich nehmen in der Schweiz fast alle Züge Fahrräder mit, aber es gibt oft dafür solche Haken im Eingangsbereich der Wagen, die sich für Tandems weniger eignen als für normale Fahrräder. Aber man kann es ja versuchen, notfalls hätten wir kurzfristig umdisponiert.

Cycling the Heart of England
by Bob Lucky, tour started July 2003
Europe: UK

I just completed a bike trip through the heart of England, starting in London and following the Thames to Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon using the National Cycle Paths. From there I curled down through the Cotswolds.

It's probably a general rule of life that things are never quite what you expect. My expectations about cycling are based on my experiences in the United States, and I discovered in two cycling trips in England that things there were often different and surprising. After my recent trip cycling mostly on the National Cycle Paths in England I made my own list of the points that I would make to someone planning a cycling trip there. This advice is intended for people outside the UK, as I'm sure that UK citizens would know much more about cycling in their country than I would. However, they wouldn't see the cycling through the eyes of a foreigner to their country. So as a foreigner to England, here's my own list of advice and surprises. It will rain, so be prepared...

Passing over small bridges
A tour of the Alps on a tandem, July 2003
by Piaw Na and Lisa, tour started July 2003

My big impression is that this is the first tour where I feel like the scenery/riding is better than what I got at home here in the San Francisco Bay Area. After returning to the Bay Area, I went out for a 50 mile ride near my house, a ride that compares favorably with New Zealand, Scotland, Southern France (in the Pyrenees). In comparison with Switzerland, though - the road surface is not as good, the mountains aren't as high, the drivers rude, and the grass is indeed greener in Switzerland (here in California the grass is brown in the summer), and I missed the cowbells ringing in the hills. To make up for that we don't get nearly so much rain, and our passes are open all winter. Our mountain descents are also more challenging, mostly because the road surface is POOR compared to Switzerland' big passes, and also because the road engineering isn't anywhere up to par with Switzerland's. Switzerland's. hairpins turns, for instance, are almost nearly level, while around here the steepest parts of a climb are on the hairpins. As you can imagine, this makes cornering, climbing, and braking much easier in Switzerland. As a matter of fact, if you can handle San Francisco Bay Area climbs and descents, you are ready for anything you will encounter in Switzerland.

Biketour along the Adria sea
by Györgyi Gábor, tour started July 2003

After experiences in cycle-touring abroad gathered 6-8 year long, for this (2003) summer I preferred to cycle along the Adria next to the mountains than to push the pedals on the ascents of the Alps (I did it in 2001). Year by year I like more and more those places where I can enjoy both the beauty of the mountains and the clear lake or sea. Croatia and Montengro are such places. I knew that bicycling along the Adria to Dubrovnik would took me about 7-9 days, but besides (emellett) I wanted to visit a few islands. I thought if I reach Dubrovnik - this wonderful town, only one day trip from the Gulf of Kotor - I would have to cycle there to. About Montenegro I read and saw beautiful photos on the website of www.baraka.hu and and On the website of baraka there were useful informations about travelling to Montenegro and their programtips gave me good ideas where to bike. I could fit in the more than 2 week, less than 3 week long holiday only if I had reached Ljubljana by train and had planned to travel to home from there by train too. (This way was shorter by one day than biking to the sea from Zagreb) Besides I purchased a ticket for a ship between Dubrovnik and Rijeka.

Bodensee and Beyond
by Mike and Andrea Venamore, tour started June 2003
Europe: Germany, France

In June 2003 my wife, Andrea and I took our hybrid bikes to Frankfurt. Leaving Frankfurt on the Main cycle path we rode to the Rhine where essentially we turned left and rode up the Rhine cycle path till we came to Bodensee (Lake Constance) in Switzerland. On the way we took short detours by riding into Karlsruhe and later into Alsace Lorraine. Once we arrived at Bodensee we cycled secondary roads to the Neckar Valley then rode down the Neckar radweg (cycle path) to Heidelberg. All told we rode some 1260 km. Undoubtedly the highlight was riding the Route de Vin (wine route) in Alsace.

Nordsee Küstenroute

Radtour Kristiansand - Stord - Bergen - Shetlands - Schottland - England.

Die Nordsee-Radroute macht süchtig! Mir geht es jedenfalls so, nachdem man im letzten Jahr gerade da aufgehört hatte, wo es immer schöner wird. Das war in Kristiansand, etwa an der Südspitze Norwegens. Wie kommt man da am besten wieder hin und von dort aus weiter? Das weiß am besten unser Freund Terje Melheim, der auf der Insel Stord südlich von Bergen gleichsam Schildwache an der Nordseeroute hält, die genau über diese Insel führt. (Mit Turid und Terje stehen wir seit vielen Jahren in E-Mail-Kontakt, außerdem haben wir uns weiland an der Neisse einmal spontan radelnderweise persönlich kennen gelernt). Unvergessen ist auch die Eröffnungstour der Nordseeroute 2001, die im Internet eindrucksvoll dokumentiert ist und mit etlichen Feierlichkeiten (auch auf den Inseln Bømlo und Stord) begangen wurde. Wer hätte gedacht, dass man einmal in diese nördlichen - und wie wir glauben finsteren - Gegenden verschlagen würde, und das auch noch mit einem Besuch bei Turid und Terje verbinden könnte?

Bicycle tour Carpathian & Balkan mountains
by Minko Oh, tour started June 2003

I did a tour along the Moldavian painted monasteries [in Romania], starting with a not too difficult pass. Sucevita monastery was even more beautiful. From there I continued east to a bigger town, Radauti, to find a bank machine for a few millions of cash. Via Solca I reached Gura Humorului. Met a group of German cycle tourists. Near the Sucevita monastery I found a nice place to camp at a B&B farm. I insisted to pay for this and for the use of the sanitary facilities and the host accepted my offer of 5 euros, which is a crazy amount for a simple camping spot. For this amount he invited me to sleep in a bedroom inside, but I refused politely and opted for my tent with nice views on the village road. My host spoke good English, teaching American sailors in Brasov and staying at his parents farm during the holiday season. [The next day I took] a small detour to visit the Voronet monastery.

La Haure Route des Pyrénées à Vélo
by Jean-Marc Thouéry, tour started May 2003
Europe: France
language: fr

Qu'est-ce que le cyclotourisme? C'est de l'amour ambulant dont la nature est l'objet. Nous devons cette définition à Henri de la Tombelle , dans son manuel du cyclotourisme édité en 1943, et je n'en connais pas de plus satisfaisante.

Pour ma part, même si le cyclotourisme demeure une activité ayant ses exigences d'effort et d'endurance, il n'est pas question de devenir esclave de la moyenne kilométrique. Dans la pratique du vélo, je vois essentiellement une façon agréable de se déplacer dans la nature, de découvrir des paysages, des régions, de réviser sa géographie en allant sur place ressentir la profondeur d'une belle vallée ou l'altitude d'une montagne.

Le Pyrénées, lorsqu'on habite Toulouse, sont l'objet de nombreuses conversations entre amoureux de la nature. Très nombreux sont les adeptes des randonnées durant l'été, et du ski durant l'hiver. Pour notre part, peu attirés par le ski et occupés à bien d'autres activités en été (du vélo par exemple), ces montagnes, pourtant si proches, demeuraient étrangères à nos pérégrinations et du coup globalement méconnues.

Return to Provence - Our second tandem trip in Provence
by David Welch, tour started May 2003
Europe: France

We encountered not one hint of anti-American feeling or negativity. Just as last year, the French people were wonderful. People repeatedly went out of their way to help us. One small example: Early in the trip, we were passing through a very small town with almost no signposting on the various intersections. On our third pass through the downtown trying to find the right road, we stopped to ask directions of two ladies talking in to main square. After some discussion, one of them went and got her car and drove to the edge of town just to show us the right way.

Summing up the trip, we had a wonderful time, ate lots of really great food and rode enogh miles not to gain weight in the process. What more can one ask from a vacation?

Cycling in Umbria and the Marches
by Tracey Maund and Colin Champion, tour started May 2003
Europe: Italy

We spent a week each in Umbria and the Marches in May and June 2003, staying in rented properties. In Umbria we stayed on the edge of Assisi in a 1000 year old tower. The countryside there is hilly and full of lovely old towns. In the Marches we stayed at Le Piane, midway between Amándola and Sarnano. The towns are less striking, though still often pleasant and well situated, but the terrain is mountainous. We chose the location becauseof the vicinity of the Sibylline Mountains, and when we went cycling we piled on the vertical metres. Tracey took a road bike and Colin a mountain bike.

Collepino
Jerry's Tour of the Dolomites and Central Alps
by Jerry Nilson, tour started 2003

I cycled for 16 days and climbed 58624 m (which is 3664 m on average per day). It was 2381 km (which is 148.8 km on average per day). These figures are a bit lower than for the previous year, mainly because I visited more unpaved mountain roads (otherwise they would likely had been higher). It was between 10 (first day at the race it was much cooler in the morning) and 41° Celsius. The maximum speed was down the Kühtai pass at 91 km/h (new record for me). Steepest road I cycled was Ischgl-Viderjoch with several kilometres above 20%. Steepest road I did not cycle was down to Switzerland from Viderjoch, with ramps at 45% on average. I had thunderstorms, I had three punctures (one on asphalt and two on gravel), and a car incident in Schwaz, Austria (early on day 17 out of 21 planned days of cycling) where I got a fracture in the back and was hospitalized. (Fortunately, I fully recovered after 3-4 months.) I visited around 119 passes (106 new passes, with perhaps 100 officially recognized ones).
