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 1998 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.

With stunning scenery and dedicated bicycle paths, South Korea has some of the finest cycling. The '4 Rivers Bicycle Trails' project has given rise to an ever growing network of bicycle trails.

Short Tour of the Alps
by Richard Evans, tour started August 2014, submitted 8 August 2014

A fantastic tour, starting in Annecy, taking in the Col de Roselend, Col d'Iseran, Croix de Fer and Col Madeleine, then back to Geneva. The page gives details of the route, hotels and restaurants. I was pretty unfortunate with the weather in July 2014, even encountering snow on the Col d'Iseran. I will return, hoping for better luck next time.

cycle experience 2014 Sweden
by Johannes Mattisson, tour started June 2014, submitted 30 July 2014

This post is about my 13 day cycling midsweden in June. The theme of this trip is how Sweden's prosperity grew with the forest, ore and hydropower. To and from Östersund, I saw all the time evidence and examples of how the idea of specialization has driven development. In the north were the mines are and raw materials produced, timber and ore. A little further south it was evidence of processed ore in blast furnaces in northern Bergslagen. In southern Bergslagen ore used to make steel. Round Lake Mälaren grew up manufactories which used steel to make products. In Stockholm there where capital.

Thus runs all capital flows to Stockholm from north to south, and this, I saw very clearly on my tour through Sweden. So it may be the theme of this trip

by Iris Mueck, tour started June 2014, submitted 19 June 2014

It seems to be modern today, to organize very classic bike tours... The "In velo veritas" tour" is one of them. http://www.inveloveritas.at/

As it wasn't so far from our place were we life, we decided to go. A wonderful day and a lot of people with good mood. This is what Organization said:

quote: Gefahren wird mit klassischen Rennrädern bis Baujahr 1987. Voraussetzung sind Riemenpedale und Rahmenschaltung. Offen Züge sind erwünscht! Nicht zugelassen sind Klick-Pedale und Brems-Schalthebel-Kombinationen. Zu den Rädern passendes Outfit wird geschätzt. unquote

Our Mercian tandem bike has been accepted. Because, there was a sort of dress code: the bike should have classic outfit (shifter on the frame, as in old days, pedals with straps..., etc.) We participated on the short tour - just easy 70 kilometers Enjoy the pictures and the report. Good luck to our followers.

A pleasures mountain-bike tour Hamburg to Lueneburg
by Iris Mueck, tour started June 2014, submitted 13 June 2014

We took the chance to visit our German bike friends to visit them. Whitsunday is a busy time in Germany. A lot of bikers are on the way... . It seems Hamburg is somehow competing with Copenhagen.

We found so many bike groups. Some of them heading for the same destination.

We had sunshine by nature and in our hearts. It was simply fun.

The arrival at the "llmenau Radweg" is somehow special. To eat and drink at the end of the tour, in a historic town of Lueneburg was our award for the tour.

Dr. No rides an electric bike, and he rides hard. Always stressing me by speed. "If I would know, you are behind me, I would have been riding much more slower..." (A joker or what?)...

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