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 2018 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.|

|Tour of Northern Corsica
tour started July 2015, submitted 19 July 2015
A great trip around northern Corsica. I started with a round trip of Cap Corse from Bastia, then crossed the island, staying in the hills close to Calvi. The tour continued down the coast to Porto, with a round trip based there. The most spectacular day was the ride from Porto to Corte in the middle of the island. The last ride was back to Bastia through a remote area. Great scenery every day, with quiet coastal and mountain roads. Thoroughly recommended. www.corsicacyclist.com is a very helpful site for anyone planning a trip

A 7-day tour from Toulouse to Barcelona. 620km cycled, stopping at Saint-Blancard, Lourdes, Sainte Marie de Campan, Vielha, Montferrer, Manresa and Barcelona.
A stunning dream trip through the Pyrenees. A nicely-balanced route, taking in Lourdes for a blessing of the legs, three consecutive big mountain days and Tour/Giro highlights of Col du Tourmalet, Col de l'Aspin, Col de Peyresourde, Col du Portillon, Puerto de la Bonaigua, and Port del Canto, then a nice couple of days home run to Barcelona.
|UAE & Oman mit Fahrrad und Zelt
tour started January 2014, submitted 15 April 2015
Bei den Emiraten und Oman kommen einen gleich Bilder von Sindbad und 1.001 Nacht in den Sinn, aber auch schier endlose heiße Wüsten. Kurzum eine perfekte Region, um sich Fahrrad und Zelt zu packen und auf den Weg zu machen.
|Bikerafting in Siberia: With bike and inflatable boat through Sayan and Altai
tour started August 2014, submitted 11 April 2015
A couple of years I wondered how to cross the Sayan and Altai mountains with a start from lake Baikal in one ride from east to west, because this area in Russia is only reachable by a couple of dead-end roads from the east, north and west. Between this roads no usual connections exists - pure wilderness dominates over hundreds of kilometers, so it seemed to be necessary to combine the destinations with big detours... But with the time I found out, that there are drivable tracks in the Altai which connect the dead-end roads. Only a crossing of Sayan seemed really impossible by bike... until I read about 'packrafts' - lightweight inflatable boats for combined land-water trips. That was the answer to my dream trip! I decided to cross the trackless section of Sayan with such a packraft and my bike on it - until the next road appeared to continue with the bike...
|With bike and sledge on snowmobile tracks through Swedish Lapland
tour started February 2015, submitted 14 March 2015
This short winter trip was initially planned as a test to find out if it is possible to cycle on snowmobile tracks with a common bike and a sledge (small packable pulka). The best destination for doing that was the region of Kebnekaise, the highest mountain of Sweden, located in Lapland close to Kiruna. There a lot of interesting places are not far from the airport and cold temperatures are more stable than in other parts of Scandinavia. At the end, I was not able to go the whole planned route, but fine weather, great landscapes and atmospheric lights, especially in the nights, round this trip to an intensive winter experience.
|Between fog and ice along the Swedish Höga Kusten
tour started February 2014, submitted 14 March 2015
One year after our first bike trip on frozen bays along the Swedish archipelago, we started a retry more northward in the region of Höga Kusten (High Coast). But unfortunately this time we had permanently cloudy and foggy weather with temperatures around zero degree. The ice was mostly broken or not safe enough, so we cycled mainly on roads, but also in that way we had some interesting impressions from the coastline and the back country.
|Bicycle tour in Andalucia: Costa del Sol + Sierra Nevada (Pico Veleta, etc) and other mountains
tour started August 2012, submitted 8 March 2015
This bicycle tour in Andalucia was a mix of cycling along the sea on the Costa del Sol and visiting few panoramic mountains (Mirador Cabra Montes, Haza de Lino, etc.) and cycling on the mountains of Sierra Nevada and Sierra de los Filabres. Bwtween Nerja and Castell de Fero the coast is wonderful with romantic bays. On the most memorable day we cycled up to Pico Veleta (3394 m) which can be reached on the highest finishing paved road and offers wonderful panorama. Above 2500 m we had very heavy wind gale. Once it lifted my touring partner's bike as he was walking next to it (he felt too dangerous to cycle there). Standng at the peak we could see Granada and the landscape around it , the coast, the Alpujarras and thanks to the wind we could see Gibraltar and a little bit Africa too. Another interesting memory was to cycle though the semi-desert of Tabernas and meet and look deers by sunset at the ridge of the Sierra de los Filabres.
