ciclabile costa del mare baltico (da Wanermunde a Usedom)
by Fernando Da Re, tour started July 2008, submitted 5 January 2009
language: it

Quando la ruota della bici si arresta sul bagnasciuga del mare, i sentimenti assumono due caratteristiche:

quella che rimanda al riposo e al benessere che il mare si presume possa dare, ma anche quella di partire, oltrepassare il confine visivo dell’orizzonte. Anche se i pensieri scivolano oltre, il bagnasciuga arresta la corsa dell’improprio mezzo e l’orizzonte rimane un insuperabile confine imposto.

Tour of the Alps 2008
by Jerry Nilson, tour started 2008, submitted 3 January 2009

The goal this Summer was to make sure I have climbed every asphalted (at least one side) pass throughout the whole of the Alps above 1700m (which I have detailed in a list at the cycloclimbing.com site). I also wanted to include some difficult roads that are not passes.

(Length: 4916.7 km for 29 days = 170 km/day; Height metres climbed: 105454 m for 29 days = 3636m/day.)

Tip to Temple
by Thomas Schultz, Zach Hoybatubbi, tour started January 2009, submitted 2 January 2009

In January of 2009, two dudes will embark on a 4000-mile adventure through the country of Chile. Their Journey will start in Ushuaia, Argentina, the southernmost city in the world. As they push northward, they will encounter brutal winds, pounding rains and the driest of deserts. In the rainy South, glaciers will send shivers down their spines and remind them of the powers of nature. The dry North will bring scorching sun that will melt their minds and offer teachings of survival. They will end high in the Amazon where they will ride through the Andes, the second highest mountain range in the world. There they will visit the location where an ancient civilization once stood, and today only whispers of ghosts can be heard from the crumbling stones...

Ice Princess 1963 - The Big Freeze of 1963
by Jobst Brandt, tour started 1963, submitted 18 December 2008

The winter of 1963 brought the longest cold spell to central Europe in a many years, freezing the landscape deeper than it had in 100 years. Realizing that such weather probably would not occur again in my lifetime, if ever, I decided to do more than read about frozen lakes and deep frost [...] The ice was glassy smooth here [in Zürich], the sun and warmth from the city having melted the surface during the warmest part of the day. I walked down onto the lake and mounted my bicycle carefully. From having ridden on snow packed streets, I was aware that the best gear was the highest (50-13) to prevent undesired wheelspin that could dump me onto the ice. Traction would have been even poorer had it not been -20 Celsius.

Ciclabile Berlino-Copenaghen (fino Warnemunde)
by Fernando Da Re, tour started July 2008, submitted 16 December 2008
language: it

Certamente non si può dire che l’odierno stato di salute del mondo, malato di rumore, sia alla ricerca di silenzio.

Se per Pascal “il silenzio è la massima delle persecuzioni”, non sono pochi i medici che consigliano l’assenza di rumore come antidoto alla vita moderna. Grazie al silenzio irrompono nella mente salutari rumori. Il silenzio non è solo assenza di rumore è un “altrove” e può diventare “l’acustica dell’anima” (Novalis).

La bicicletta irrompe nella natura con la voce del silenzio. In questo itinerario di 400 chilometri (primo tratto del più lungo Berlino-Copenaghen), si può capire che quanto precedentemente asserito non è da considerare un’ingannevole retorica. Qui il silenzio ci abita regalmente nelle innumerevoli stanze di uno Schloss (castello) che si chiama natura. Il silenzio non parla, non scrive e non compone musica. Eppure si fa sentire. Una bicicletta può bastare per ascoltarlo.

Warnemunde-Faro
Cycling the South Island of New Zealand
by Ben and Beth Elderd, tour started February 2004, submitted 14 December 2008

I have a confession to make. There are times when I enjoy planning our trips as much as taking them. There is a certain excitement to putting a magic marker on a map knowing that you will be following that zig zag line on your bike. Could it be that the planning process heightens the anticipation of the trip? Is it the beginning of the adrenaline rush? And if it was adrenaline that we were looking for, then why not go to the adrenaline capital of the world, New Zealand!

The tour would begin in Wellington at the southern tip of the North Island. We would take a ferry ride across Cook Sound to Picton. From there we would make our way to the coast and bike along side the Tasman Sea to Haast. At Haast we would turn inland to Lake Wanaka and Queenstown. After taking a week off from biking to hike the Milford Trek, it would be back across the island to the Pacific Ocean and Dunedin. Our trip would end in Dunedin where we take the bus to Christchurch and then the train back to Picton.

Un cicloviaggio praticamente indimenticabile, 12 tappe da Saint Jean Pied de Port a Santiago de Compostela, passando per i monti della Navarra e i vitigni della Rioja, attraversando le immense distese delle mesetas tra Burgos e Leon, salendo in alto verso la Cruz de Hierro e il Cebreiro per ridiscendere infine verso i boschi e i saliscendi della Galizia. Il racconto di un viaggio di 850 km lungo le strade del mitico Cammino di Santiago!!!

Cycling in France - Paris, Burgundy, Alsace and Provence
by Glen and Margaret Netherwood, tour started September 2008, submitted 23 November 2008

Our 2008 cycling trip gave us a taste of France. We cycled in Paris, Burgundy, Alsace and Provence. We loved French bakeries and cake shops. This has had some not so good side effects - we came back with extra weight! And that's in spite of cycling over 1000km.
If you are planning a similar cycling tour you will find a lot of useful information in our trip Itinerary and day-by-day Trip Report. If you would like to see the beauty of cycling in France do not miss the Best Photos & Videos. You may also be interested in our recommendations for the best places to see, stay and eat in Top 5.

by Daniela Ulicna, tour started August 2008, submitted 22 November 2008

This eight day trip around the volcanic region of Auvergne in the centre of France took us through some surprising ladscapes, nice valleys and some challenging passes (at least challenging for us).

The idea of freedom and not working is appealing to everyone. Tanya and I have quit our jobs and have left the country (our home, Canada) for a year. We are going to be riding our bicycles through many countries. Moving along at a slow pace, emerging ourselves in the culture. The only goal is to have a good time, not deal with schedules, or due dates and see a part of the world that has always intrigued us.

Western Desert: Washington State to Kansas State in the USA
by Wayne Joerding, tour started May 2008, submitted 15 November 2008

This cycle journal describes my trip from eastern Washington state, through the central basin area of Oregon, across Nevada, Utah, Colorado, and Kansas to the Missouri border. Most of this route follows the Adventure Cycling Association Western Express route, famous for it's long distances between towns, food, or water. However, the less traveled central basin of Oregon presents even more challenges requiring careful planning.

Capitol Reef National Park and bicycle
Chile, Castro to Villarrica
by Paul R. Hoffman, tour started January 2008, submitted 13 November 2008

We took a five week trip to Chile. About four of the weeks we spent of our bikes, taking our time and having fun. It was a great trip but in hindsight I would recommend a more mountain like bike. We used Lemond Poprad cyclocross bikes. The wheels it turned out were especially not ready for the rough terrain with the touring weight.

Bike - Thailand
by Ronald Xie, tour started 2008, submitted 9 November 2008

People often ask why with budget airlines making travel so inexpensive I still plan on making a bike trip to Thailand. They say the journey may be physically demanding at my age (56) and dangerous as I would ride from Tumpat, Kelantan Malaysia right into the three hot spots in southern Thailand.

The southernmost provinces of Narathiwat, Yala and Pattani have been terrorized by regular attacks since early 2004, when a separatist movement flared after a lull of more than two decades.

Attacks generally take the form of drive-by shootings and small-scale bombings intended to frighten Buddhist residents into leaving the area. Suspected insurgents mainly target people seen as collaborating with the government, including soldiers, police, informants and civilians.

France Again: A short tour in Burgundy
by Suzanne Gibson, tour started August 2008, submitted 18 October 2008

Burgundy is a great place for cycling: whether your tour is to be short or long, flat or hilly, with emphasis on nature or architecture - in Burgundy you have your choice. For part of our short visit we followed bike paths following the Canal de Bourgogne and Canal du Nirvenais, otherwise we cycled on small roads with almost no traffic through pleasant, but hilly, countryside. We visited Auxerre, Tonnerre, Avallon, Pontigny, Semur-en-Auxois ...

Soll ich treten oder nicht? Mit drei Fahrraedern, zwei Anhaengern und Kindern von Zurich zum Atlantik
by Florian Michahelles, tour started July 2008, submitted 16 October 2008
language: de

I ve actually done quite a number of bike-trips myself. It was always a pleasure to be out in the nowhere for longer period of time just moving forward on two wheels.

Finally, after a longer period of absence from travelling I could free two months again. This time the challenge was to find a way of cycling with the entire family, with Juri (4) and Lenya (1), and my wife Angela of course. Thanks to the great Swiss invention of follow-me tandem we could attach Juris bike and de-tach it from time to time if traffic allowed. The bigger challenge was to find enough storage for our luggage which lead to the ``convoi exceptionnell'': two trailers in row behind my bike.

If you want so see how that worked out on the way from Zurich to the French Atlantic, read this live-blog written during the tour on my mobile phone (German). There are plenty of pictures of course as well.

Mediterraneo
by Alberto Pedrotti, submitted 16 October 2008
language: it

Nascondo il bagaglio presso il monumento che ricorda l'eccidio nazista di Kalavrita, che è un po' la Sant'Anna di Stazzema del Peloponneso [347], e per la prima volta mi godo dunque qualche km scarico. A cinque anni esatti di distanza dal 29 agosto 2003 in cui scoprii questa affascinante montagna, mi ritrovo dunque a calcare i 2341 metri del monte Helmos o Aroania [348], terza vetta della penisola dopo il Taigeto e il Cillene. Quest'ultimo è vicino e ben visibile, con il suo ampio costone sul quale Ercole si sedette a suonare le nacchere di bronzo per scacciare gli uccelli della palude Stimfalia... Quella fatica - la sesta - fu anche l'ultima che l'eroe portò a termine nel «piccolo mondo» del Peloponneso; per le altre sei avrebbe dovuto aprirsi al «grande mondo» - il Mediterraneo e anche oltre - spaziando dal Caucaso, dove si impadroní della cintura di Ippolita, fino là dove il Sole va ogni giorno con il suo cocchio a riposare, sul lontano Atlante marocchino, dove colse i pomi delle Espèridi.

Day 3 Vilshäred to Kärradal

The day started early. Although the campsite itself was quiet, the road next to it had a surprising amount of traffic. Added to this there was someone racing around in the middle of the night on a moped without a silencer.

At around seven our neighbours decided to start rooting around their car for something vitally important ('oh my God where is my Thermarest inflatable dialysis machine I need it right now' or something similarly life threatening) and by quarter past, it was clear neither of us was going to get any more sleep.

'Oh well' we thought, 'there is always a shower to look forward to'.....Which in retrospect was another of those things you shouldn't say on cycling holidays. For Vilshäred campsite introduced us to peaceful and neutral Sweden's secret weapon: a variation of Chinese water torture known as 'the one kroner shower'.

It was an unforgettable tour of contrasts: from the baking sun in Sweden to the rain and floods in Norway. The gorgeous Swedish coast versus the majesty of the Norwegian fjords and glaciers.

The travelogue contains pictures, videos and trip statistics per day plus some things we have learned from this tour.

WorldTripping.net - Simon and Leah attempt to cycle around the world
by Simon Green & Leah Ingham, tour started 2004, submitted 3 October 2008

Lost in the Seses.
Blackness you could touch. No moon to guide us. No bike lights only Simon's tiny maglite. The road was barely a path, which pinged and cracked as we cycled along it. Simon held the torch in his mouth, and its light wound a curving trail on our ''road.'' Several times we almost crashed into one another. Mumbled curses firing from Simon, unable to release the full volley for fear of dropping his light. Undoubtedly, this was to my advantage and I was able to retaliate with much vitriol, winding him up even more.
