Bike tour in the "Transylvanian Alps" in winter conditions
by Claudiu Moga, tour started October 2009, submitted 7 January 2012

It's an extreme tour I made with a friend of mine. We climbed the toughest alpine road in Romania: "The Transfagarasan". This road goes up to 2040m high, and it was snowing, we had to fight against a blizzard, it was a great adventure.

2009 Miles That Changed My Life
by Bridget Bailey, tour started June 2011, submitted 4 January 2012

People deal with the plights of life differently. When something major happens, some become mentally paralyzed and others just go and do. I was getting to that point where I couldn't do anything, so I decided to do something that wouldn't let me hibernate-I biked the Pacific Coast by myself. Vancouver to Squamish to Bowen Island, back down through Vancouver to Washington, through the Islands, over the Olympic Penn., and then down the WA, OR, & CA coast.

Short tour of southern Tuscany
by Richard Evans, tour started June 2010, submitted 30 December 2011

I undertook a short tour of southern Tuscany in June 2010, starting in Montepulciano. The page describes the four days of touring, providing maps and photographs of the area. For those wanting to combine picturesque cycling with stays in beautiful towns and great food, it is an excellent choice. I've provided some information on the hotels and restaurants I used. I would highly recommend the trip, although perhaps shortening some of the days to allow more time to explore.

Route: Montepulciano - Montalcino - Massa Marittima - San Gimignano - Pisa

From Bavaria to the Baltic Sea and Back
by Suzanne Gibson, tour started May 2011, submitted 29 December 2011

We wanted to take a long door-to-door trip and, hurrah, we made it. Our route went from Munich to Bremen, the Baltic, the Polish border, Prague and back to our front door where we started. Travelling through different parts of Germany and a bit of the Czech Republic, we saw many different landscapes, people, architecture. In relatively densely populated Europe things are close together and there were seldom long stretches with nothing of interest.

A taste of Tenerife
by Igor Kovse, tour started December 2011, submitted 27 December 2011

For Europeans, Canary Islands are a perfect winter training place.

At the end of the year, when the winter grips Europe with cold, fog and damp, the European "wannabe" racing cyclists start to panic. The hard work throughout the year and investment in developing muscles and superior VO2 is lost in just a few weeks of non activity. At that time their sad eyes turn to the south, to warm inviting places where the sun still provides much needed training, enabling that essential tenth of a second of advantage over their opponents on a club ride in the spring next year.

Estamos realizando el sueño de unir a los pueblos mediterráneos mediante la bicicleta, en concreto montados en un tandem. Salimos de Sevilla en marzo de 2011, a la vez iban floreciendo las revoluciones de La Primavera Árabe y Europa se tambalea. Vivir este momento histórico desde la bicicleta está siendo una experiencia sin igual.

Por ahora hemos recorrido la costa norte del Mare Nostrum y continuamos nuestro viaje en sentido horario. Un viaje donde lo principal no son los paisajes sino las personas.

Norwegian Cycle Adventure - Bergen-Trondheim
by Terje Melheim, tour started August 2010, submitted 25 December 2011

I started this cycle tour by going by vintage vessel up the coast from Bergen. From Florø I went by bicycle along fjords, passed glaciers and crossed mountains. At one place, because the road hadn't been built through, I had to push by bicycle through the terrain for 10 kilometres in order to reach the town of Trondheim.

Via Francigena 2011
by Paul Love, tour started September 2011, submitted 24 December 2011

This is a description of our 30 day (almost 2000 km) trip from Canterbury to Rome, on the Via Francigena by tandem. We found our way using paved roads on a diagonal route from Calais passing through Arras, Reims, Langres to Besancon. We crossed into Switzerland at l'Aubusson and St. Croix. One of the highlights was the 42 km climb over the Grand St. Bernard Pass from Martigny, Switzerland into Italy. The route then took us through the Val d' Aosta and south eventually to Pontremoli, Lucca, Siena, Montalcino, Bolsena, Bracciano and into the heart of Rome via the bike path along the Tiber River.

Short tour of Jotunheim Norway
by Richard Evans, tour started July 2011, submitted 4 December 2011

I undertook a short tour in Norway in the summer of 2011, beginning in Lillehammer. The page describes the four days of touring, providing maps and photographs of the area. Riding in the Jotunheimen mountain range was particularly spectacular. For those interested in great climbs which are a bit off the beaten track, this is an excellent choice. I've also provided some information on getting around and the hotels and restaurants I used. I would highly recommend the trip, although I may have felt differently had it rained

Da Giarre (Abano Terme) a Due Carrare, alle falde dei colli Euganei
by Fernando Da Re, tour started October 2011, submitted 20 November 2011
language: it

Chi percorre questa via non può non entrare in sintonia con la natura e il silenzio che vi abita. Le persone, incontrandosi, entrano immediatamente in relazione verbale e gestuale. Alle spalle i colli, sono pronti a donarci l'abbraccio che custodiremo anche nei pixel della fotocamera. Due lontani campanili attraggono costantemente. Prima alla nostra sinistra e poi di fronte si avvicinano fino a sovrapporsi. Come i due campanili...

Cicloturismo in Lettonia: da Capo Kolka a Nida/Neringa (Lituania)
by Fernando Da Re, tour started June 2011, submitted 31 October 2011
language: it

Il sole scende lentamente all'orizzonte, illumina le vele dei numerosi surfisti. Il mare increspato deve attendere ancora prima di tingersi d'oro. Una ragazza raccoglie sulla spiaggia alcuni frammenti che inserisce in una bottiglia. Quando ce li mette sotto gli occhi, pronuncia la parola magica 'ambar'. Quel nome e il colore di quei frammenti non possono ingannare: si tratta di ambra....

Lungo la Loira: un fiume e cento castelli

Lungo la strada non mi resta che lasciarmi andare seguendo il corso della Loira, qui ampio ed accogliente, per farmi portare verso gli affascinanti castelli di Blois ed Amboise. Più discosto nella campagna (e purtroppo nei pressi di una centrale nucleare) è, invece, quello maestoso di Chambord.....

En Provence, in Provenza

L'incanto dei borghi arroccati su dirupi vertiginosi, il fascino ed il misticismo delle abazie benedettine rendono la Provenza una méta sempre desiderata. Un viaggio che, per quanto lo si ripeta, non delude mai.

Fa un caldo torrido in questo mese di luglio, in Provenza....

Da Genova a Marsiglia, attraversando la costa azzurra
by Beatrice Virga, tour started April 2011, submitted 28 October 2011
language: it

A Maggio avevo voglia di mare, ma anche di pedalare: un collega mi consiglia la Costa Azzurra anche per il clima mite. Acquisto una cartina, segno le località che mi suggerisce, preparo il minimo indispensabile e prendo i treni che mi portano a Genova. Qui, un capotreno gentilissimo, ha voluto aprire per forza il vagone per le bici, solo che all'arrivo ci sono voluti 20 minuti e 4 meccanici per riaprirlo. Più che la gentilezza potè la forza.

Da Giarre (Abano Terme) al lago Frassanelle
by Fernando Da Re, tour started October 2011, submitted 27 October 2011
language: it

Itinerario nel Parco Naturale Regionale dei Colli Euganei.

Da Giarre raggiungiamo Monteortone per la via più diretta che passa dal centro di Abano (tratto con bici a mano) e seguendo tutta la pista ciclabile fino al Santuario della Vergine.

Scendiamo dalla ciclabile sulla carreggiata e la percorriamo in direzione Tramonte. Alla nostra destra si presenta il colle in tutta la naturalità, solitario, arrotondato con la fisionomia di una montagna e il bosco intatto che lo avvolge interamente. Raggiunta Villa delle Rose in località Tramonte, svoltiamo subito a destra. La stradina che sale con lievi tornanti, porta in breve sul dosso. Qui o poco prima, ci fermiamo per osservare la città di Abano da una posizione privilegiata.

Two oldies going on a long bicycle ride
by Lynne Roberts, tour started July 2008, submitted 21 October 2011
language: English

Twenty years ago we cycled half way round the world, so we thought we'd better have another go before we get too old to do ANYTHING, let alone cycle!

So after 4 months in Europe (the training ground) we hit South India, then a quick hop over the ocean to South East Asia. When we were Asia'd out we decided to go to South America, via the UK (planning is NOT our forte). From Venezuela we headed south to Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia from which we headed back up to Central America (remember what I said about planning?) to meet up with friends and family. This took approx 2 wonderful years. I wonder where we'll go next time?

Thayatal valley ride in fall 2011
by Iris Mueck, tour started October 2011, submitted 16 October 2011

As every year, we did our late summer ride to the North of Austria: Thayatal valley. Real 'old' Austria, which we like most, particular that stile. This page is made primarily to honor the people who operate one of the last remaining railroad gifts in Austria: The Reblausexpress. We undertake this tour, at least one a year, just to see, how time is changing... The Reblausexpress reminds us on 'old' Austria, a country, which has been beautiful with open and honest people. But time is changing... We still have met open people on our tour, which made it even more enjoyable! Hope you enjoy the pictures. Good luck to all our followers

Achtung: gefährliche Wegstrecke
Pantalica e valle dell'Anapo in bicicletta
by alex, tour started August 2011, submitted 13 October 2011
language: it

Bella cicloescursione di 90 km con partenza e arrivo a Siracusa, passando per Floridia, Solarino, Ferla e attraversamento di parte della Valle dell'Anapo e Pantalica, in bici pieghevole.

Poco prima di Ferla il sentiero ciclopedonale indicato in verde che attraversa la Valle dell'Anapo non è percorribile in bicicletta a meno di una autorizzazione del Corpo Forestale dello stato. Dopo il paesino di Ferla però esiste una strada accessibile alle macchine che ''taglia'' il parco in due e giunge nei pressi di un parcheggio in cui la strada stessa si interrompe.

Nella mappa, il tratto segnato in rosso infatti è un sentiero escursionistico non praticabile con la bici. Nel primo tratto si scende fino al fiume Calcinara, e dopo averlo guadato si sale un altro sentiero fino a Sortino. In questo sentiero l'ingresso con la bici non costituisce un problema ma è effettivamente impossibile pedalare e quindi l'unica via è portarla a spalla (cosa che è stata comunque faticosissima).

Durante la cicloescursione si ammirano la Grotta dei pipistrelli, e le tantissime tombe che costituiscono la Necropoli di Pantalica. Una fatica che dunque vale la pena.

Un po' di storia

Floridia prende il nome dalla duchessa Floridia Lucia Migliaccio, già sposata morganaticamente col re delle Due Sicilie Ferdinando I e detta anche la Favorita (da qui anche il nome dello stadio di Palermo).

Solarino, detto anche San Paolo Solarino, in onore di San Paolo che si fermò alcuni giorni vicino Siracusa, in attesa di proseguire verso Roma per essere giudicato.

Parco dei Simbruini (o quasi) in Bicicletta
by alex, tour started August 2011, submitted 13 October 2011
language: it

Questo week end era in programma un'escursione in bici per i Monti Simbruini con partenza a Ferentino e arrivo la domenica sera a L'Aquila. Tutto è cominciato bene, a parte il caldo che davvero non dava tregua, ciclista e bici pieghevole, tutti e due in grande forma.

Da Ferentino dopo un primo breve tratto si costeggia il lago di Citerno, nell'omonima Riserva Naturale, si svalica il Passo della Sella (931 m) e si scende quindi a Fiuggi, animata il sabato da un po' di turismo.

Passo della Sella

Una nuova salita conduce agli Altipiani di Arcinazzo (900 m), ultimo comune prima dell'ingresso nel Parco dei Simbruini e della lunga e ultima salita che porta a Campo Staffi (1850 m). Si attraversano in ordine prima Trevi nel Lazio e subito dopo il bel paesino di Filettino (1100 m). Dopo pochi chilometri, quando Campo Staffi ne è distante solo 8, succede che un copertone si squarcia, sfilacciandosi nelle cuciture, e senza ricambi, non resta altra soluzione che tornare indietro dopo aver aspettato il primo pullman. Dal profilo altimetrico si nota proprio l'itinerario strozzato quasi in prossimità dell'arrivo.

Insomma oltre al danno anche la beffa: di aver pedalato dalle 9 alle 16:00 (nelle ore più calde), non aver potuto godere del paesaggio dal valico, e soprattutto di non aver nemmeno iniziato la discesa!!!

Davvero molto desolante! Ma dato che da ogni esperienza negativa (d'altronde capitano a tutti) c'è qualcosa da imparare, la nuova lezione è: il copertone di scorta portarlo sempre, anche per la gitarella di due giorni. Unica nota positiva, la pieghevole che è stato comodissimo caricare e scaricare dai tre pullman che sono stati necessari per rientrare a Roma (Filettino - Altipiani di Arcinazzo, Altipiani di Arcinazzo - Fiuggi, e Fiuggi - Roma).
