Cycling the Americas
by Sven Schirmer, tour started September 2011, submitted 28 September 2012

I heard lots about the West Coast from American travellers, recommending great national parks and the Route 101 that is sort of famous thing to do for cyclists. So I decided to postpone other planned advetures and flew to vancouver BC, equipped with my good old pushbike, my tent and a warm sleeping bag. After fantastic landscapes and forests down South to San Diego I teamed up with Kathrin, a great cycling mate. When we reached the Southern tip of Baja California, we decided to move on together, crossed Mexico into Guatemala and Belize. After living in a rented house on the Lake Atitlan we ventured out for snow capped mountains of South America, crossing the Andes from Santiago to Mendoza and moved up North again, to Machu Picchu.

Bicycle tour from Curitiba, Brazil to Montevideo, Uruguay in November and December, 2010

This is a blog I wrote while making a 1,300 mile solo bicycle trip from Curitiba, Brazil to Montevideo, Uruguay, via the interior of the State of Santa Catarina, and then the coast of Rio Grande do Sul. Numerous photographs are included in the blog.

Memelland Tour 2012
by Iris Mueck, tour started September 2012, submitted 19 September 2012

To make a long story short: I have been twice... The first and the last time... Maybe the time is to short, that good old communistic times have changed into new democratic times... No problem with authority, but standard behavior of people on road and public places are questionable... Even on Neringa, and this is valid for nearly all roads at Lithuania: It became a transit corridor for Russians, particular for the access to and from Kaliningrad. People with cars overhaul with no clearance. Very dangerous. A lot of roads bear signs : no bicycles. But on the other hand bicycle trails are not inviting. Most of them end in a gravel and mud Nirvana... You need time, to find someone who speaks English. German is nearly not present... My advise: check out carefully your tour. Expect the unexpected. My tour has been somehow 'wet'. Enjoy the pictures. Good luck to our followers!

Short tour of Austria
by Richard Evans, tour started July 2012, submitted 16 September 2012

I have cycled in Slovenia and the Dolomites before and on both occasions due to poor weather and a lack of fitness did not ride a route I had previously planned. I decided to return to tackle two climbs - the Grossglockner in Austria and the Vrsic in Slovenia. It was well worth it. Here you will find details of the route, together with information on the hotels and restaurants I used. Learning the lessons, it could be turned from a very good to great tour.

Cicloturismo in Danimarca Jutland in libertà - prima parte
by Fernando Da Re, tour started June 2012, submitted 15 September 2012
language: it

Descrizione percorso 800 km. in bicicletta da Goteborg a Lubecca

Le case apparivano irreali in quella luce forte e sembravano avvolte in un silenzio che il chiasso e il rumore dei veicoli potevano a stento turbare". Fu solo per pochi istanti che il porto di Skagen ci mostrò le sue luci e le sue ombre, perché il sole si addormentò dietro una grigia coltre di nubi e, in fretta, fresche gocce ci convinsero ad affrettare i nostri passi e spegnere definitivamente le fotocamere golose di tramonti.

We are two Indian cyclists rediscovering our own country through a 9000 km journey through the heart of India.
tour started August 2012, submitted 8 September 2012

Only accessible with a Facebook account

We are 2 Indians who have decided to hit the road on our cycles and rediscover our country slowly but surely. This is our first ever touring trip together and we ride into this quite unprepared, but we are learning with every hour that passes and we are loving it even more with every minute on the road. We have just about started and it has already been an overwhelming ride. With 5 months more to go, we can't wait to expect everything that road is going to spring upon us.

200 cols tour
by Igor Kovse, tour started August 2012, submitted 7 September 2012

What was this day like? Considering that I climbed Mont Ventoux, it couldn't have been bad. It's really a fantastic climb! The legend, the magic, the must! It's the Lourdes for the cyclists of any religion. And what a descent! 21 km of mind-blowing pleasure. Enough to get me through few more cols.

Cicloturismo in Danimarca - Partiamo da Goteborg

language: it

Prima parte del tour da Goteborg a Lubecca.

In Svezia, per la prima volta e con la bicicletta! All'esterno del modesto aeroporto di Goteborg City, ricomporre la bicicletta, spedita in scatola, fu come mettere insieme le facili costruzioni della Lego. Mentre i tasselli andavano al loro posto, i tassisti e le poche persone presenti, degnarono di pochi sguardi, senza sorprendersi, i quattro cicloturisti chinati a giocare con la ricomposizione delle loro biciclette.

Lana 2012 Tour
by Iris Mueck, tour started September 2012, submitted 6 September 2012

Our travel to Lana: by train and bicycle. Leaving Vienna by night train, which arrives very early in the morning at Innsbruck: 4:17 hrs. Still dark! We ride in night time the old Brenner road. Just beautiful. We experienced a lot of traffic from people sparing the toll for the freeway. But, we earned our award on the downhill of the newly erected bicycle path at the Brenner road down to Vipiteno (Sterzing). Continued riding down the Eisack valley to Bolzano on the bicycle path.

Riding in Europe, Alps
by Ray Hosler, tour started 1985, submitted 22 August 2012

The Alps have long been a summer and winter playground for vacationers around the world. They ski, they hike, they ride bikes. What better venue for the Tour de France than the Alps? After many years of reading, seeing, and dreaming, I had an opportunity to see Europe by bike. As a free-lance writer working part-time at Palo Alto Bicycles, I had no commitments. It was 1985. Greg LeMond had nearly won the Tour de France and was competing in the World Championships in Italy. I decided to go see him race. A friend who was familiar with riding in Europe gave valuable advice.

Riding in Europe, Alps
by Ray Hosler, tour started 1986, submitted 22 August 2012

After my first ride through the Alps the previous year, I had the opportunity to go with a friend, Jobst Brandt, who had been riding in Europe since 1959. We would brave fallout from the Chernobyl nuclear power plant meltdown in Russia. A plume of radioactive dust blew over the Alps while we were there, so here's my glowing report.

The Amsterdam-Munich Express
by Suzanne Gibson, tour started July 2012, submitted 20 August 2012

This year's summer tour started in Amsterdam. After visiting Haarlem und then Leiden, we continued on to Den Haag, Utrecht and Arnhem. We visited the Veluwe National Park, crossed the border at Bocholt and rode on to Münster and then Kassel for this year's Documenta. We then followed the Fulda, Sinn , Main and Altmühl river valleys - all separated by hills that had to be crossed. When we reached the Danube, we felt we were almost home and it was smooth sailing to Munich.

A tour to explore hidden Styrian summits
by Iris Mueck, tour started June 2012, submitted 30 June 2012

Road bike Tour to Wildalpen (Styria/Austria). We ignored the very hot weather and made the tour... With light luggage we made this day 115 kilometers. Prime distance we did per train (Moedling to Payerbach). Then the bicycle...: 1st summit the Preiner Gscheid (height 1.070 meters above sea level) down to Mürzsteg and then 2nd summit: the Niederalpl. A 1.221 meters high connecting summit. For bicyclists rather steep and long (My estimate: 10% slope). My advise: avoid this summit, when not in mood... We have been heading for Wildalpen, found a perfect (affordable) 4**** hotel and enjoyed the evening on a natural pool. The little town Wildalpen is embedded in the 'Salza'-valley. The waters are wild. like the upper Enns river. We have seen many sport kayak riders. We consider to go again to this area, just to share the good times with the paddlers. No one would believe in us, saying, we have been riding home in one day. Hitting Goestling, Lunz, Gaming, St. Anton on Jesnitz, Frankenfels, Kirchberg, St.Poelten. At St.Poelten a bus has taken us back home. Nevertheless this day ended again with 123 kilometers. Hot, hot... Enjoy the pictures below. Good luck to all our followers.

Cycle Tour in the Po Valley
by Suzanne Gibson, tour started May 2012, submitted 17 June 2012

Italy, Italy, why Italy? We live in Munich and Italy is close and yet foreign. It's easy to get there by train with our bikes and its culture will never cease to lure us - its food, language, architecture, flair. We chose this stretch along the Po for its abundance of beautiful towns and cities and May is a perfect time to open the cycling season. On this two-week tour we didn't stick strictly to the Po, but meandered off when a city interested us or we hadn't been there before.

Overland touring
by Jacques & Mandy, tour started June 2012, submitted 8 June 2012

It's hard to describe the feeling when you're just about to start an extended overland trip - it's even harder to describe the feeling when that trip is about to end, but the end of one trip however means that you are that little bit closer to the beginning of the next adventure.

We completed our 1st overland trip after 545 days on the road, traveling just over 70,000km and crossing 35 countries.

Our 2nd trip was always going to happen, it was just a matter of deciding how, when and where and after a lot of deliberation we finally decided on the next adventure. Some people think it's a bit extreme when comparing it to our trip from Oz to Cape Town, but what would life really be like without a bit of adventure and challenges. After all, we are all here to live life...!

A bicycle! Yes, that's right, a bicycle!!

We are hoping to cover about 20,000 km over a planned 12 month period starting in Indonesia, heading north from there through SE Asia into southern China before making a u-turn to go south once again through Vietnam before hopping onto a plane to continue in India to finally reach Nepal.

Cammino di Sant'Antonio-percorso Muson dei Sassi

L'itinerario ciclabile inaugurato nel 2009 parte da Cadoneghe e ripercorre il "cammino di Sant'Antonio" fino a Camposampiero. In realtà il Santo fece questo percorso nel senso inverso: trovandosi a Camposampiero quasi morente, volle giungere a Padova dove morì il 13 giugno del 1231.

The cycle route opened in 2009 starts from Cadoneghe and traces the "journey of St. Anthony" until Camposampiero. In reality, the Holy One did this route in reverse: finding Camposampiero almost dying, he wanted to come to Padua where he died 13 June 1231.

A mountain bike tour to the Berounka valley (Czech Republik)
by Iris Mueck, tour started September 1999, submitted 30 May 2012

Berounka is a little town, West of Praha, the capital city of the Czech republic. The tour itself is just a day ride, but in a fairytale landscape. Not easy to find anymore in good old Europe. So peaceful, so warm and nice. In each little village an old restaurant to 're-fuel' ones body... With what? Czech beer, charged as top brand. Needless to say, we do it again! Enjoy the pictures. Good luck to our followers!

La bicicletta aiuta a scoprire anche questa bellissima capitale.

Attraversata dalla lunga via ciclabile denominata Eurovelo 6 (Nantes-Odessa), la città Budapest si presenta all'appuntamento con il turismo in bicicletta, ben organizzata e sorprendente. In Ungheria le piste ciclabili stanno crescendo ma anche le strade "amiche dei ciclisti", contrassegnate da un simbolo verde e poco trafficate, si prestano bene al cicloturismo.

Cicloturismo in Norvegia: "quando la strada si fa dura i pensieri diventano poesia"

Il mio viaggio in Norvegia è iniziato quando lo pensai un pomeriggio. Comodamente seduto in auto con degli amici incrociammo due ciclisti bardati di tutto punto con bagagli al seguito che stavano affrontando una impegnativa salita. Avevamo già vissuto la severità di quei luoghi e promisi a me stesso di rifarlo sulle due ruote. Il fascino di dura conquista che trasmettevano quei due impavidi, mi scosse. Lasciati condurre....

A journey begins when you begin to think and ends when you stop to remember. My trip to Norway began when I thought of an afternoon. Comfortably seated in the car with some friends we passed two cyclists decked with luggage in tow who were facing a challenging climb. We had already experienced the severity of those places and I promised myself to do it again on two wheels. The charm of those two tough wins that played fearless, shook me.

Mallorca Training Tour 2012
by Iris Mueck, tour started March 2012, submitted 2 April 2012

The Spain Island of Majorca is always a good choice for winter-weary bicyclists to warm up the lazy bones. It is advisable to check the hotel prices which vary from • 20,- to • 70,-. Quoted prices for half board. Attention, never take an unknown hotel below three star. It will never fulfill a bicyclist expectation. Sometimes even three-star hotel are questionable. I have rented the bike by paying the rent via PayPal in advance. The rent is more or less the same as the airfare price to transport a bicycle. My dealer has taken the bicycle right to my hotel. Great service!

On my tour, I have been lucky, only two cold days. Nevertheless, I kept on riding... One week = sweet 740 kilometers. For me, it looked the Puig Major road has been extended (or my 'winter-weary' body came down to an utmost weak point). Enjoy the report and the pictures. Good luck to all followers.

Cicloturismo in Lituanua - Kaunas e Vilnius
by Fernando Da Re, tour started June 2011, submitted 20 March 2012
language: it, en

Terza ed ultima descrizione del tour da Riga A Vilnius.

Sebbene il centro storico di Kaunas sia facilmente visitabile a piedi, vale la pena utilizzare la bicicletta per vedere aldilà della Old Town e per raggiungere siti importanti della periferia. Lungo i due fiumi che la attraversano e sopra i colli che la circondano, si trovano scorci insoliti e pittoreschi. La bicicletta aiuta a raggiungere ogni punto e a godere in libertà i suoi punti migliori. Pochi i chilometri per raggiungere "Devintojo Forto Muziejus" (qualche scritta in più non guasterebbe) e la sua zona monumentale costruita sull'area del forte che fu l'ultima strenua resistenza contro l'invasione russa.

Third and final description of the tour from Riga to Vilnius.

Although the old town of Kaunas is easily explored on foot, it's worth using the bicycle to see beyond the Old Town and to reach important places in the suburbs. Along the two rivers that flow through and above the hills that surround it, are unusual and picturesque views. The bicycle helps get anywhere and enjoy freedom in their best points. A few kilometers to reach the "Devintojo Forto Muziejus" (written a few more would not hurt) and his monumental area of the fort that was built on the last stand against the Russian invasion.

Da lì a là is an Italian expression meaning roughly hither and thither, and this summarize my will, my restless temper of changing place every so often. I'm biking around Europe stopping from time to time when my attention is captured by an outstanding recipe a traditional food or a weird one. Pedalling alone is just fine, but together with other cyclists, especially from the country I'll be riding at the moment is just fantastic: less fatigue, more fun. You can get a look at the Euro-Tour map to get a gist of what'll be the route I'll follow in this year. If you're biking in the some zone, or nearby or you're going to start something similar and you'll like to have a ride together, let me know. Get in touch! Sys
