The Trento Bike Pages collect bicycle tour reports, mainly for road bikes, but also mountainbikes, as well as general bicycle touring and travel information, and bicycle club and organization listings. If you plan a bicycle tour, you'll find plenty of tour reports of people who have been there before. The Trento Bike pages got started in 1995 by Andreas Caranti, and have grown from a mailing list for the Italian Trento area to cover all of Europe, and now also Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Australia. The Trento Bike Pages got a new maintainer in 2005. They are kept alive by people submitting tour reports, so please tell us about your own tours! Spread the word.
The Trento Bike Pages contain 1930 reports, organized:
|By country:||Lists most countries of the world, each linking to pages with tours and information in and about that country. Tours that go through multiple countries appear on all corresponding country pages. Tours are sorted by submission date, newest first.|
|By author:||A list of all the authors who have submitted reports to the Trento Bike Pages.|
|By date:||A list of all recent reports (added since January 2005), latest first.|
|Tips:||General bicycling information: bicycle maintenance, forum sites, packing lists, etc.|

|Biketour auf der Karibikinsel Kuba
tour started April 2013, submitted 12 June 2013
Auf einer Radreise durch Kuba bleibt ausreichend Zeit, Land und Leute intensiv zu erleben. Die fast verkehrsfreien Strassen sind ideal um sich mit dem Fahrrad fortzubewegen. Wir fuhren von der Hauptstadt Havanna in einer Rundtour durch den Westen des Landes nach Vinales und anschliessend im Osten Kubas auf den Cayo Santa Maria und über den Pass Topes de Collantes nach Trinidad.
|Island - Ein Radlerparadies
tour started 2009, submitted 31 May 2013
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.

|Ride, hike and travel Lima-Miraflores and vicinity (Peru)
tour started May 2013, submitted 29 May 2013
South America tour:
As a bicycle traveler, I have been lucky to book a bike tour at the local organization bikingtoursoflima. Located at Miraflores. Not far from my hostel (Pirwa). Pirwa hostel is somehow better as rated and described at tripadvisor... So, the bike tour has been quickly organized. This time, I have been lucky. It worked! I have been supplied by a bike.
You should know, Lima's roads are not made for bicyclists. They are wide, but the traffic is so heavy and car drivers are so 'nervous', that you may quickly will be run-over, once you show up on road. Most of the cross roads throughout the city, we have pedaled on sidewalks. No way - it seems to be a must! Once you reached the shoreline it is a very scenic place. The road follows the cliffs. Very nice. Right in the middle of Miraflores there is a food mall located. With extreme high class restaurants. Worth to go! Some Peruvian Soles could be spent there... Remember, we are now nearly on sea level. The typical Peruvian elevations are over by now. But the cliffs makes you ride on rolling hills. As we hit just some of the suburban villages down South, as e.g. Barranca and Corrilleres it didn't exhaust us to much. In this area, you may not find any signs of Inca culture at all. Lima-Miraflores is a place, where the well-doing upper class people live.
See impressions from the ride at the pages below! Enjoy the pictures. Good luck to our followers!
|Inca trail to Machu Picchu May 2013
tour started May 2013, submitted 27 May 2013
South America tour:
The tour starts at Cusco. The major capital city of the Incas.
At Cusco you may find at least, if not thousands of travel agents who are offering the Inca trail tour and others. I have planned my tour in advance and... was cheated by an agent 'firstname.lastname@example.org'... Just $ 150,- which I have been asked to send via Western Union to Jenny Maribel Machacho Quispe at the address of Calle Hatun Rumiyonc Nr. 487, Cusco Peru. Emails bounce back, Telephone cannot be 'completed as dialed', their web-page does not exist anymore. But at Cusco I contacted the tourist police and they told me, this lady has many cases and is already ordered to court.
I have therefore purchased a new tour at Coca travel agency at Cusco. Reliable! A 4days/3nights tour which has been a combination of biking and hiking to the Machu Picchu. [...]
Without a tour guide, it wouldn't be wise to take the trail. For many reasons. Security is one, food and drink supply another. Check out the correct route another (not to found in a Coca jungle laboratory, whereas the 'shining path' protects the business).
The hike up to the Machu Picchu ruins is not for mountain bikers as well. The path is so steep, that even young people give up and walk on the winding road up. But there the conflict with the never ending line of tourist buses start. The road is ruled by the bus drivers. Man, they can be rude. The road is narrow and they drive their way, no matter if a tourist is in their way... Sometimes scary.
|hike (and bike...) to the Nazca Lines - May 2013
tour started May 2013, submitted 27 May 2013
South America tour:
I tried to book a bicycle tour, as I did on other locations at Bolivia and Peru... It has not been working out. The guys from bikeperu.com didn't find the time for a reply... No bicycle means automatically to find other means of transport - the car of the hostel keeper (Marco from Pirwa hostel Nazca). Nazca is a sort of rural place. It takes nearly 7 hours to go down by bus from Lima. You may meet people from all over the world.
The way down to Nazca is on good paved road with wide shoulder. But there is low infrastructure in between. Let's assume you bike down on the Panamericana Sud, you have to plan your stay carefully in advance. It is a very dry, hot and sandy area. Never have seen a single bicyclist on the road. The high elevations are over...; nevertheless you may find 'rolling hills - a coastal road is never totally flat. The last part down to Nazca is 'inland' with some minor hills to climb in between.
I have refused to fly over the lines. They have two steel structure platforms, whereas you may see a lot of lines. Figures etc. Most of the lines go back to 800 before Christ. They belong to the times before the modern Inca. [...] Enjoy the pictures. Good luck to our followers!

|The death road ride - Bolivien 2013
tour started May 2012, submitted 26 May 2013
Many times I have checked at the Internet this ride... Now, dreams has come true... The Death Road, or as it is called 'the most dangerous road of the world" is the ultimate downhill ride. People from all over the world doing this, and try to get a kick.
I did it with the support of 'Gravity Biking'. A very reliable organization, which I really can recommend. They have experienced tour guides, who makes this ride easy and safe. Gravity Biking also provides the bike. We had blue sky weather, with some exceptions, e.g. when crossing a waterfall, or a misty jungle area. You should take into consideration, the start is elevated at a height of 4.700 meters, finally going down to 1.250 meters. Passing at least 3 climate zones. The road comprises a ride on paved road, round 13 kilometers and about 47 kilometers on dirt road. Hanging cliffs, makes the ride somehow scenic (...and dangerous).
Today, not so many bikers die per year.... The original name came by the fact, that, before the new paved road, this road has been the connecting road to go from La Paz to Santa Cruz. Today, as the new road is completed, the old road became a mountain bike Eldorado. The organized tour ends with a zip line event. We found a three rope zip line - the flying fox (check out at the Internet!)
Please note: when entering the lower part of the road, just before the paved roads ends, you are passing a local police check point. It may happen that even tourists are forced to undertake a drug test. Because this area is known as one of the Coca farming area. Coca leaves has two sides: one is the Coca leave tea, which is legal and a rather good medicine to overcome height sickness symptoms. The other side is the processing the Coca leaves in jungle laboratories and traffic the final product. They say, the "shining path" organization today comprises no more than 50 people which protect the Cocaine trafficking.
