Sites (continued) 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.

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!

Europe: Austria

A fun Tour inside the city of Vienna.

This event has been sponsored by British folding bicycle manufacturer. As Heide has one from this brand, she couldn`t be stopped to participate. Very hot weather conditions made it a very sweaty tour over paved and unpaved roads. Three rounds round the 'Lusthaus' at Vienna's Prater. In total just nine Kilometers... Heide has been recognized as the first women at the arrival. Enjoy the pictures. Good luck to all our followers!

Update 2011 - In, out of and through Austria by train taking your own bicycle with you

Rail services of the Austrian national federal railway company OEBB have seriously deteriorated the last few years. There are no direct connections to France, Belgium, Netherlands any more and the rest is a fragment. On domestic connections passengers suffer from delays, overcrowded trains, bad service and all sorts of unpleasant experiences including overcrowded trains cleared by the police.

Most important for tourists with bicycles is that in 2010 most of the trains that still had bicycle capacities were robbed of the luggage van.

IBAS 2011

Cari amici appassionati di viaggi in Mountain Bike che avete, come noi di IBAS, quella spinta interiore che fa pensare continuamente all'Islanda, come anticipato il viaggio IBAS 2011 con le Mountain Bike si svolgerà nella seconda metà di Agosto 2011. Le date dovrebbero essere dal 15 agosto al 29 Agosto. La parola ''dovrebbero'' dipende ancora dagli ultimi dettagli che ci devono fornire gli operatori dei voli e sopratutto il traghetto che deve portare i veicoli dell'organizzazione dalla Danimarca all'Islanda. Ma già da ora sappiamo che potrebbero essere aggiustamenti piccoli di uno o al massimo due giorni.

La sorpresa che vogliamo farvi, questo capodanno 2010, è che siamo riusciti a eseguire una economia di scala sulle prenotazioni voli e rifugi che ci permettono ora di proporre un prezzo inimmaginabile per altre organizzazioni, per coloro che riusciranno a prenotare entro il 28 febbraio 2011. Oltre questa data il prezzo salirà, non per colpa nostra, ma per i voli e le prenotazioni dei servizi connessi al viaggio. [...]

Grading Ireland's cycling routes
by John Walshe, , submitted 29 October 2010
Europe: Ireland

Independent assessment of Irish Cycle Touring Routes

Do you want an independent assessment of Ireland's Official Cycling Routes? If you do read on. My name is John Walshe and I have decided to cycle them all. According to the Failte Ireland website we have about 79 cycling routes in the Republic of Ireland which came as news to me when I happened upon that claim earlier on this year (2010). Since then I have been cycling them one by one and I have uploaded my report on each route onto my web page.

Some of them are o.k. but most of them are dreadful. I intend to assess each and every one of them. I am cycling them solely from the viewpoint of a touring cyclist i.e. the kind of person who uses his holidays to cycle bringing with him all his luggage, tent etc. on the bike. As I cycle these routes I also bring along with me a theoretical nine years old daughter and an equally theoretical 10 years old son. This is the standard test that is used internationally. Would you let your two kids cycle this route? If the answer is 'yes' then the route qualifies all things considered. If the answer is 'no it's too dangerous' then the route does not qualify. It's as simple as that. Of course scenery has to be factored in and the degree of difficulty. [...]

Hiking to the 'Trefflinfall' - Lower Austria
by Iris Mueck, , submitted 12 August 2010
Europe: Austria

Beside bicycling, we tried a hike, which is not so far from our home... Destination: 'Trefflingfall' located in Lower Austria. Reachable via train 'Mariazellerbahn' (a 'narrow rails track' train)or by car, following the Hwy 39 from St.Poelten on. Passing little towns like Obergrafendorf, Kirchberg, Loich, Winterbach. Right in the middle of the village 'Puchenstuben' one has turn right a downhill road to the 'Trefflingfall'. A sort of hidden place. Safe to go. A lot of safety ropes surrounds the hiking path down to the river fall. Worth to go! Enjoy the pictures! Good luck to all the followers!

Corvara, has been the starting point of several 'Maratona dles Dolomites', I have been participating. We said: we do the Sella Ronda in winter. On Snow board. The tour takes just 4 hours (if you are lucky on queues before the lifts...).

Worth to see the little city of Arabba, just before the Porte Vescovo. We made a side trip to the Marmolada (there are two ways of correct spelling: Marmolada and Marmolata - one is in local language 'ladinisch'). Enjoy the pictures! Good luck to all the followers!

For 7 years an amateur MTB race ``Hillclimb to Mount Zavizan from 0 to 1594'' starts from the Adriatic shore up to the mountain peak Zavizan at 1594 m.
