Trento Bike Pages

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 1986 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.

Feel free to link to the Trento Bike Pages. Be aware that the report directories are automatically generated, and URLs may shift.

Bicycle touring around Southamerica, from Colombia to Argentina
by Alberto and Lucy, tour started January 2014, submitted 16 April 2014

In January 2014 we started a dream of ours: bicycle tour around Southamerica, without a major route plan. Just ride South from Quito, via Colombia first. Why Southamerica? The landscapes, the people, the culture, the food, and most importantly, the language. Being fluent Spanish speakers allows a more intimate connection with the people and communities we will be cycling through.

Ecopista do Dão - Cycling on an abandoned railway line
by Peter Sales, submitted 14 April 2014
language: en, nl, pt

Ecopista do Dão - Cycling in central Portugal along an abandoned railway line, 49 km.

The first part of this path runs along the banks of the river Dão. Every bend in the river is followed by a bend in the Ecopista, with stannic views.

Later on, the Ecopista leaves the river, but the landscape remains very beautiful, with views of mountains and valleys covered with oaks, cork oaks and chestnut trees, but also some vineyards, cultivated land and small villages.

Heide mountain bike trail tour
by Iris Mueck, tour started March 2014, submitted 26 March 2014

some of my followers expect that I am on big tour, most probably at South America - but I am not....

We expect to carry our recent bought ship home to Austria. The ship still rests at Frankfurt / Main (Germany). Needless to say, it is a costly and time consuming job. That's why...

I have not forgotten to train myself. One of the very typical daily tours lead me to the 'HEIDE' (a local recreational area) A trail, which starts right in front of my house and consequently ends here... Distance: a rough guess: 23 kilometers (about 15 miles) . Climbing, moderate, up to about 550 meters elevation. Duration: with a short rest and a beer: 2 hrs.

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

TheShirt

Norway 2014
The Shirt project wheels along! The next stage in the Journey is announced! On June 14 I shall set out from Kirkenes on the Russian border. This is probably the toughest challenge to date as we are not talking the flatlands of the Netherlands or the East of England. No, I shall face the mountains and valleys of the west coast of Norway. The backbone of the journey will be a visit to all the clubs in the top three divisions of Norwegian football. The journey will take me from down from Kirkenes to Bodø (the most northerly of the Tippeligaen clubs to Trondheim (RBK), Molde, Aalesund, Sogndal, Brann, Haugesund, Stavanger on to Kristiansand, Skien and then 1000 km loop inland before finishing with the clubs in the Oslo area. A journey of some 5000 km. Hopefully, I will finish at City Hall, Oslo in one piece on or before the 31st August. This trip is NOT for the faint-hearted!

Why Norway?
In the 1840s, Ivar Aasen from Ørsta, Sunnmøre travelled the length and breadth of Norway to collate the dialects and language usage of the country. He wanted to hear and annotate the language so that he could create a standarised pan-Norwegian language. This he realised was very different from the "official" Danish language spoken at that time.

Yes, I will also travel the length and breadth of Norway to find out what Norway is REALLY like in the early 21st century. This may or not be very different from the "official" view.

This is a description of a cycling holiday in France following one of the Coast to Coast routes (C2C) and which was undertaken using an android app called memory-map and viewranger. As much of a review of the equipment and software as the ride itself.
