Kate and Greg bike Andalusia
by Greg Shannan, tour started 2011, submitted 14 July 2013

Descriptions of our cycling holidays in Europe for our friends. We are an old couple (a Canadian and an American) that travel by bike using hotels. This is a description of the places as much as the biking, but also relays our experience as cycling tourists in Europe.

Last year we biked some serious hills in the French Alps; so we wanted something less strenuous this year. We decided to go to Spain for a change, and settled on a trip through Andalusia from Granada through Cordoba, Seville, Cadiz, then the Mountains to Ronda and finally to Gibraltar.

Last year we biked through Andalusia in Spain to Gibraltar. This year we wanted to see some of Italy that we hadn't seen. Particularly, we wanted to see Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Mt. Vesuvius, and bike the Amalfi coast. This inevitably involved going to Naples.

A solo trip which started from Paris to West Africa in October 2012. And also an audiovisual project on new technologies and DIY in Africa, focusing on how creativity can emerge from a lack of material. A roadtrip project through several countries - from geographical deserts to digital deserts, from high tech to DIY technology, from cities to remote areas. An immersion of several months into the daily life of locals where unexpected resourcefulness lies alongside high technology.

Now in Guinea for the rainy saison and heading towards Ivory Cost.

- CYBERCONTE est un voyage à vélo - de la ville à la brousse, des déserts géographiques aux déserts numériques, du high tech au systhème D. C'est un projet consacré à une culture numérique émergente au Maghreb et en Afrique de l'ouest.

À travers ce projet, il s'agit de donner à voir une certaine créativité numérique et technologique.

Lake Michigan bicycle tour 2013
by Iris Mueck, tour started June 2013, submitted 24 June 2013

I tried to figure out, if there is a way to make the circle tour round the Lake Michigan. Actually, it is (...but more for motorists...). As a bicyclist, you should consider the North part of the Lake (...and you hit two states: Wisconsin and Michigan). There is a ferry from Manitowoc (Wisconsin) to Ludington (Michigan). The ferry is operated by an old traditional steam ship: the Badger. The tour is based on the idea, to visit some concerts at the Ravinia venue, which is nearby the home of my friends. And then, combine it with a circle tour round Lake Michigan.

We all have seen Judy Collins and Joan Baez. Both artists delivered a wonderful show. The Ravinia venue comprises lawn seats and inside places. People normally eat (...and drink), before the concert. Some stay at the lawn, some move to the inside places.

Biking has has started the first day upon my arrival. Quickly, I went on bike and tried the out the 'Green Bay Trail'. At Wilmette, the trail follows the 'Metra' commuter train (Chicago to Kenosha) Northbound Beside this, we all have been touring the local area of Wilmette. Later, we hit the trail to Chicago's Botanical garden, which is actually North of Wilmette. In this area you pass a lot of green and nice housing area. People say, this is an area, shit doesn't stink... :-)

After the concerts my biking days have started. With the help of the 'Metra' train, I have been riding a little North. Actually to Waukegan. On my first riding day, I have passed the huge city

Island - Ein Radlerparadies

In der Hitze Mittelamerikas wurde mir klar, der nächste Urlaub sollte wieder ein sportliches Abenteuer sein, das Mensch und Material an seine Grenzen bringt.

Und was bietet sich da besser an als Radeln auf Island? Wind, Regen, Matsch und Geröll, dafür ist Island unter Kennern bekannt.

Es gab nur ein Problem... meine Freundin! Es gibt zwei Sachen, die auf keinen Fall aufeinander treffen sollten: Sie und Island (und schon gar nicht mit einem Fahrrad!). Um unsere Beziehung zu retten, bekam ich schließlich von ihr einen Freibrief und durfte zusammen mit einem Freund den Walfänger spielen.

Zusätzlich gibt es eine Bildergalerie.

Ötz valley (Ötztaler) bicycle marathon (I had a dream) 2010': 228 km + 5300 m
by Györgyi Gábor, tour started August 2010, submitted 5 May 2013

In the year of 2010 I participated in the Ötz valley bicyclemarathon (228 km + 5300 m) which is one of the most prestigious bicycle marathon event in Europe. Its slogan is „I have a dream” and a lot of starters think this, me too. First I saw a report about it in the TV 17 years earlier and I hoped I would cycle it once in my life. I rode my touringbike and I carried a small videocamera with me to record the day for video.

The route starts in Austria, Tirol. Its 1st climb is Kühtai (2020 m) which ascent contains a stretch with 16% steepness. On the descent I reached 86 km/h speed. After Brennerpass the 3rd ascent was Jaufenpass / Passo Monte Giovo by pleasant sunny weather. As I reached Bad St Leonhard in time (before timelimit) I knew that the last hard climb, Passo Rombo / Timmelsjoch (250 m) would be a pleasure for me (I knew it too, had climbed earlier): enough time and unbelievable feeling on that wonderful road. I took a lot of photos and often used my videocamera and enjoyed the last climb very much, while I saw few cyclists struggling. I reached the finish with great emotions and memories: that was one of the most memorable day of my life. The travelogue contains a 28 minutes long video about the bicycle marathon.

"Oh, oh, Lütte, das sieht gar nicht gut aus!", hatte ich meiner Freundin zugerufen, als sie vor mir fahrend versuchte, einen Bergpass von 3200 Meter Höhe mit einer Geschwindigkeit von 0,3 km/h zu erklimmen.

Dass ein solches Tempo in einem Land mit 7 Tausender und einer gigantischen Bergkette, einem den Pass nicht wirklich näher bringt, kann man sich vorstellen...

A folding-bike tour throughout Malmo / Sweden
by Iris Mueck, tour started April 2013, submitted 20 April 2013

The basic idea of this tour originates, to combine a bicycle tour with a concert of of Mary Gauthier at Malmo. [...] Useless to say, for me as a lifelong bicyclist I have decided to take the chance and pack my Brompton folding bike and carry it with me. That's make me touring around the city of Malmo / Sweden.

To travel to Malmo, is somehow easy. I decided to take a direct flight to Copenhagen, using my free miles. Then by train to Malmo, which is nowadays just 35 minutes away from Copenhagen, if one takes the train. So far, as I know, the train passes a sub-sea tunnel, which shortens the travel time drastically down. Needless to say: I had a wonderful concert, a wonderful stay and enjoyed riding the city of Malmo.

I have never seen a 'bicycling ride city' as Malmo before, but it is in competition with Copenhagen, which seems to have people with the same habit. Language of Denmark and Sweden is somehow similar. Both countries are rather expensive. Both countries still on their original currency, the Swedish crown or the Danish crown. A foreigner needs not to change money. Everything can get paid by credit card. Really everything; even the toilet usage at the train station.

Enjoy the pictures and my report. Good luck to our followers!

L'opportunità di riscoprire vecchi percorsi arginali, uniti ad affascinanti tratti di strade rurali attraverso rigogliose colture frutticole e formazioni boscose fluviali, ha portato all'ideazione di una proposta di percorso cicloturistico che colleghi due direttrici turistiche a valenza europea già affermate ed in fase di definizione e potenziamento quali la dx Adige e la sx Po.

On frozen bays along the Swedish archipelago
by Richard Löwenherz, tour started February 2013, submitted 16 April 2013
language: de

Cycling on the ice is a great thing. You drive away from man-made paths, you have countless opportunities to go in a direction, and you get really close to unspoiled landscapes. A bit of skill is required to assess the self-chosen roadway as safe. We learned from previous tours in Germany, when lakes and rivers freze for a short time and animate to small bike tours. After that we were attracted for a distant goal with different landscapes: the Swedish archipelago with its countless islands and bays - enough space for an extensive trip over several days. The ice in February was thick enough and open areas were mostly already recognizable from afar. As it turns out, the biggest problem was the snow, which had grown in few days so high that we had to continue on the streets.

On horse tracks through the Tian Shan and a finale in the Pamirs
by Richard Löwenherz, tour started September 2012, submitted 16 April 2013
language: de

Central Asia attracted with its gigantic mountains and secluded paths that I wanted to experience as much as possible. With my "Yak", which I bought six years ago at a bazaar in Mongolia, I spent six weeks in the Tian Shan in the Pamirs of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. Rather unplanned I chosed a few times connecting paths that turned out to be animal and equestrian trails. But finally these sections were the most impressive of the entire trip... A continuation of the journey through the Pamirs was not possible because previous fights in Khorog resulted in the temporary closure of the Gorno-Badakhshan region. Merely a detour towards Kalaikhum I was able to try.

September 2012 and I was back, solo in the French Pyrenees, staying high and near the Spanish border,specifically in the Pyrenees Atlantique and Haute Pyrenees. My goal was to ride many of the famous cols and to explore the Pays Basque and Bearn. I planned to spend several days in different locations, riding unloaded on the oh-so-beautiful little roads of France before moving on. The ride began with a beautiful, all-too-short ride along the coast south from St. Jean de Luz, then turned inland to St. Jean Pied de Port, Larrau, Arette, Arrens-Marsous, Luz St. Sauveur. Cols climbed included Arnostéguy, Orgambide, Burdincurutcheta, Bagargui, Marie Blanque, Aubisque, finishing with the very famous Col de Tourmalet.

Via dei normanni, Lecce
by Fiab Lecce, tour started April 2012, submitted 3 April 2013
language: it

L'itinerario si svolge nell'area a nord-est di Lecce toccando il Bosco di Rauccio, posto quasi in prossimità della costa adriatica. Il bosco è uno degli ambienti naturali più belli di Puglia, ultimo residuo di una più estesa e folta copertura boschiva conosciuta nel medioevo come "Foresta di Lecce". Ma la meta ultima della nostra ciclo-navigazione è la straordinaria Abbazia di Cerrate, della prima metà del XII secolo, la cui costruzione sarebbe stata voluta dal conte normanno Tancredi.

The tour takes place in the area north-east of Lecce touching the Rauccio Forest, located almost near the Adriatic coast. The forest is one of the most beautiful natural environments of Puglia, the last remnant of a more extensive and dense forest cover in the Middle Ages known as the "Forest of Lecce." But the ultimate goal of our cycle-navigation is the extraordinary Abbey Cerrate, the first half of the twelfth century, whose construction was commissioned by the count Norman Tancredi.

Fuerteventura Tour 2013 - an early spring time training tour
by Iris Mueck, tour started February 2012, submitted 5 March 2013

Winter time in Austria is boring for bicyclists. In order to get my lazy bones moving, I have decided to do this tour.

At the Spain Island Fuerteventura you may find the sun of Africa and you training partner, the wind of the Atlantic. Fuerteventura has become popular by bicyclists. It's a rocky, hilly Island. Main Wind direction NW. It would be wise to ride against the wind in the morning and return with tail wind.

Roads are empty only on very early morning hours. During day time, all the others are on their way with rented cars. But take care, looking at the driving performance of some drivers, told me: not everyone is with a drivers license. But even the bus drivers can be special. I have been using once a bus, and the driver as set the speed to automatic and with his feet he made dancing steps to follow the loud music of the radio, whilst his bus has been riding against the car before him in far too short distance.

Winding roads, most of them are new (maybe EU money returns) makes riding road by bicycle easy. Highest elevation on road is the Betancuria circle with the highest summit of the 'Morro Velosa', round 660 meters above sea level. Not all road shown in the maps are paved. The Island has become popular for mountain biking. [...]

Via Verde de Ojos Negros

language: es

Las Vías Verdes de Ojos Negros I y II , con unos 160 km de longitud, unen Santa Eulalia (al Noroeste de Teruel) con la ciudad de Sagunto, y entre las dos forman la Vía Verde mas larga de España.

Atardecer entre Escandon y Teruel

La ruta sigue en su mayor parte el trazado de un antiguo tren minero abierto a principios del siglo XX, y que unía las minas de Ojos Negros con el puerto de Sagunto. Las minas fueron en su momento las principales minas de hierro de España, que ademas contaban con la ventaja de ser a cielo abierto y de fácil explotación. Sin ninguna industria en la zona capaz de explotarlas, se construyo un ferrocarril de vía estrecha que llevara el material a los altos hornos de Sagunto. Esta linea estuvo en funcionamiento hasta 1973, cuando para aumentar la capacidad de transporte, se reconvirtió a vía ancha el tramo desde las minas a Santa Eulalia , donde se unía a la ya existente red de vía ancha de RENFE. Quedo entonces el resto que la linea de vía estrecha entre Santa Eulalia y Sagunto en desuso, y este es mas o menos el tramo que se ha transformado en vía verde, y que durante muchos kilómetros transcurre paralelo a la linea de vía ancha todavía en funcionamiento para transporte de viaj! eros.
