Munich to Paris - Door to Door
by Suzanne Gibson, tour started June 2008, submitted 25 July 2008

This was our first tour of the season and we have new bikes. In the Internet we saw a site describing a new bike route connecting Prag and Paris and decided to follow the French section. After cycling from here to the Rhine, we rode through Alsace-Lorraine, the Champagne Region and enter Paris along the Canal de l'Ourcq. We followed river valleys and canals, but still were in for a lot of climbs before we reached our goal.

Spain -- bicycle tours of two piciclisti who only have bikes in their mind.
by Pinar & Paolo Pinzuti, tour started October 2007, submitted 9 July 2008
language: en, it, tr

We visited Spain in October 2007, for 14 days and our route followed from Malaga on the Mediterranean coast, north to Seville, Cordoba and Granada.

The roads varied in condition. Mostly they were in good shape although some of the back roads could be bumpy after being patched over several times. If we had one complaint about Spanish roads it was that sometimes we struggled to find a quiet alternative to busy routes and in cities like Seville it seemed almost impossible to leave without running into endless motorways.

Germany -- bicycle tours of two piciclisti who only have bikes in their mind.
by Pinar & Paolo Pinzuti, tour started September 2007, submitted 9 July 2008
language: en, it, tr

We decided to make our honeymoon in Southern Germany at the border to Switzerland, riding our bikes from the Lake Constance (Bodensee) to the Lake Königsee. We did a one-week-tour in August 2007. The cycle route between the lakes sets out from Lindau toward the Allgäu hills. Tiny villages dot the landscape between forests and meadows. Offering a view over the Allgäu Alps, the route goes on to Füssen with its lovely houses. Passing the gorgeous Neuschwanstein Castle, Bad Tölz on the Isar, the route continues through the Upper Bavarian picture-book scenery to Lake Tegernsee and on to Lake Schliersee. The tour?s final destination is right in the heart of the Alpine countryside of the Berchtesgaden National Park: Lake Königssee is truly a crowning finale to a princely cycle tour.

Morocco -- bicycle tours of two piciclisti who only have bikes in their mind.
by Pinar & Paolo Pinzuti, tour started April 2008, submitted 9 July 2008
language: en, it, tr

Without renting an apartment in Milan, without packing our staff in the boxes in Nuremberg, just before we move from Germany to Italy we decided to take the opportunity to make a holiday between our ex-job and the new one. We made a bike tour for three weeks in Morocco. We chose Morocco for the holiday because of the good experiences Pinar made on her visit in 2002, the well known hospitality of Moroccan people, the suitable weather and the famous Atlas Mountains.

south portuguese: from lissabon to the algarve
by Conrad Philipp, tour started May 2008, submitted 30 June 2008
language: en, de, fr

Die zweite Tour 2008 führte mich von Lissabon, entlang der Steilküste im Westen bis in die Sierra de Monchique. Hier regnete es sehr stark, deswegen fuhr ich wieder zum Meer um schließlich den südwestlichsten Punkt von Europa zu besichtigen. Ein Felgenschaden musste am vorletzten Tag in Lagos repariert werden. Die Algarve im nördlich umfahrend erreichte ich nach 680 Kilomtern mein Ziel in Faro. Auf diesem Kurztrip wurde ich mehrmals zum Essen eingeladen und lernte den ursprünglichen Teil Portugal fernab der Touristenströme kennen.

New Zealand by Bicycle
by Nicholas Jensen, tour started February 2007, submitted 27 June 2008 : NewZealand

From hiking on glaciers to kayaking with fur seals, our trip to New Zealand was more than just a long bike ride. We spent 3 months cycling on both islands but could have easily spent another 3 months and not run out of amazing places to visit. If you've ever dreamed of cycling in New Zealand, stop dreaming and just go. Pack up your panniers and go.

A ride from Kashgar, Western China to Lhasa, Tibet.
by Peter Quaife, tour started July 2007, submitted 18 June 2008

A solo, unsupported and mostly illegal ride from Kashgar in Western China to Lhasa in Tibet along the infamous highway 219. There's already detailed practical information about this tough route available, but nothing I could find which described in detail what the route was like to ride and had lots of big pictures.

This is probably one of the toughest routes in the world a bike tourist could do. The road is terrible, there are long stretches without food or water, much of it is at extreme altitude (5400m max with several weeks over 5000m), many rivers have no bridge and much of the ride is technically illegal.

The reward is astonishing scenery, amazing culture and a sense of utter isolation.

Un voyage entre Toulouse et Gibraltar à vélo couché - A trip from Toulouse to Gibraltar on a recumbent bike
by legrosseb, tour started May 2007, submitted 4 June 2008
language: fr, en

¡ Mira la bici ! c'est un site entièrement monté avec la pipe et le couteau, consacré au voyage à vélo couché et qui parle de ce premier périple en 2007 à travers l'Espagne entre Toulouse et Gibraltar.

Mais ¡ Mira la bici ! ( ``Mate le vélo!'' en espagnol) n'est pas seulement le carnet d'un voyage à vélo couché à travers l'Espagne, c'est aussi le point de convergence entre le voyage à faible empreinte environnementale, la photographie et le vélo couché.

Et puis parce qu'internet m'a été d'une aide précieuse pour la préparation de mon périple, ces pages vous en diront un peu plus sur ce petit bout de chemin et donnent le maximum d'informations sur ce voyage en particulier, sur le voyage à vélo en général sans oublier deux ou trois mots sur le vélo couché.

The travel diary and the technical features of the trip are also available in English

Vuelta a Cuba
by Andres R., tour started November 2005, submitted 31 May 2008

Palm trees, live music, hot dance, mojitos, and lots of backroads.

A lightweight tour of the Caribbean Island of Cuba.

The plan is to ride from east to west across the island to take advantage of the easterly winds this time of year. We know our starting point, Santiago de Cuba, and our ending point, La Habana, but we have no idea, nor do we want to have an idea about the route. I bought Lonely Planet's Cycling Cuba and a map of Cuba, these two pieces of paper will take us across Cuba or serve as toilet paper somewhere along the way.

A two week bicycle tour on the Camino de Santiago, Spain
by Marnus Hattingh, tour started September 2006, submitted 28 May 2008

From dodging bandits to sidestepping trucks, surviving the famous Camino de Santiago pilgrim's way in Spain hasn't changed that much since the sandal made way to the cycling shoe. This is a trip report of my two week mountainbike tour on the Camino, following the route from St. Jean Pied de Port in France to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Included are a background history, detailed packing list and some tips on preparation and logistics for your own tour.

Giro del lago di Costanza (Bodensee tour)
by webmaster - castione.ch, tour started July 2006, submitted 26 May 2008
language: it

Il lago di Costanza (Bodensee) è un percorso ideale per i ciclisti grazie alla bellezza del paesaggio e all'abbondanza di strutture appositamente pensate per loro: dalle piste ciclabili agli enti turistici e alberghi che offrono una particolare accoglienza con tanto di depositi custoditi, assistenza tecnica e materiale informativo a disposizione.

Il periplo completo del lago attraversa tre stati (Svizzera, Germania e Austria) e misura circa 260 km, considerando anche la propaggine occidentale formata dai bacini dello Zeller See e dell'Untersee; non ci sono praticamente rilievi; è possibile abbreviare il percorso sfruttando una delle numerose rotte che collegano le due sponde del lago (Bodensee-Schiffbetriebe). Lungo il tragitto si incontrano villaggi con le abitazioni dalla tipica architettura del Baden-Württenberg e alcune splendide isole e penisole collegate alla costa da ponti e quindi facilmente accessibili anche alle biciclette: Mainau, Reichenau e Lindau, su cui sorge il nucleo dell'omonimo villaggio. In tutta la regione si trovano numerosi centri balneari e termali oltre a un'infinità di spiagge che ben si prestano a un intermezzo rilassante fra una tappa e l'altra.

Tibet & Peru by bike; crossing the Himalaya and Andes when you are fifty plus
by Pieter Parmentier, tour started September 2005, submitted 15 April 2008
language: en, nl

Cycling in Tibet is hard. Why would someone who considers himself to be a quiet normal family man go cycling in such a country. Or more precisely, why would anyone go cycling there at all.

Most people do not know much about Tibet other than that it is rather high up and far away, and so it is. We knew more about this 'roof of the world' than most before we went, but fortunately not everything. But let's start at the beginning; who are we and why did we want to go to Tibet in the first place!

Cycling from Argentina to Alaska
by Kelly and Dave, tour started November 2008, submitted 6 April 2008

Two Poole based intrepid travellers are setting off on a journey of a lifetime to raise funds for a local charity, Julia's House and the international charity, SOS Children's Villages.

Kelly and Dave will be starting in Ushuaia, at the Southern tip of Argentina in South America and will cycle to Alaska, the extreme northwest portion of the North American continent.

They anticipate that they will be on the road for up to 2 years, facing extreme weather conditions and the challenging terrain that the American continent has to offer. They plan to cycle the world's driest desert and the high altitude mountain regions of the Andes.

By doing the trip by bicycle they are hoping it will bring them closer to the environment and learn about the ever changing world that we live in and aim to leave minimal impact upon the environment.

Pyrenäen
by Conrad Philipp, tour started July 2006, submitted 31 March 2008
language: de

Die Suche nach einer neuen Herausforderung führte uns diesmal ins Grenzgebiet von Frankreich und Spanien. Es stand nichts geringeres auf dem Programm als die Pyrenäen von West nach Ost zu überwinden. Wir starteten in Bilbao und radelten zwei Etappen am Atlantik bis zur Grenze nach Frankreich. Auf der französischen Seite fuhren wir dann in die Pyrenäen. In den Bergen konnten wir viele bekannte Pässe abfahren. Zudem erlebten wir äußerst gastfreundliche Franzosen und grandiose Landschaften.

Das Wetter spielte auch fast immer mit. Bis auf zwei Tage hatten wir den gesamten Tag über Sonnenschein und Temperaturen von knapp 40°C im Schatten. Auch eine durchgebremste Felge, Mückenschwärme am Mittelmeer und die zahlreichen Stunden bergauf konnten uns nicht unsere Motivation nehmen. Nach zahlreichen anstrengenden Bergettappen hatten wir das Mittelmeer erreicht. Von dort war es nicht mehr weit bis nach Barcelona wo wir unseren Urlaub mit einigen Cocktails entspannt ausklingen ließen.

Jena - Paris
by Conrad Philipp, tour started July 2003, submitted 31 March 2008
language: de

Erst hatte ich vor, die Tour-de-France-Strecke (einmal rund um Frankreich) abzufahren. Aber für dieses Vorhaben konnte ich keinen begeistern. Als zu strapaziös wurde mein Plan bezeichnet. Ich war mir mittlerweile selbst nicht mehr sicher gewesen, ob eine komplette Runde nicht zu viel für mich ist. Ich plante also um. Es entstand die Idee, zum Tour-de France-Finale nach Paris zu fahren. Stilecht sollte die Fahrt von unserer Haustür [in Jena] starten. [...]

Wir hatten nun acht Tage Zeit, bis nach Paris zu kommen um Zabel, Ullrich, Armstrong ... zu sehen. Mehr als 1000 Kilometer lagen vor uns. Die gnadenlose Sommerhitze forderte ihren materiellen und körperlichen Tribut.

Im Herbst kamen Robert und Conrad auf die spontane Idee eine Radtour zu starten. Aufgrund der fortgeschrittenen Jahreszeit kamen nur noch mediterane Gebiete für die Tour in Frage. Nach einer Nachtschicht vor dem Rechner und über den Atlanten entschieden wir uns für Korsika. Die Insel galt als gebirgig jedoch schreckte uns das nicht ab, denn umso schöne Aussichten erhofften wir uns von den Gipfeln. Auf der Insel angekommen erwartete uns zuerst bedeckter Himmel. Die Wolken verzogen sich jedoch bereits am zweiten Tag und so hatten wir traumhafte Aussichten am Cape Corse.
