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 2007 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.

by Fernando Da Re, tour started June 2014, submitted 29 September 2015
language: it

Noi a Batumi avevamo un messaggio da portare. Fummo investiti della funzione di ambasciatori di pace dal Comune di Verona per incontrare la Municipalità di Batumi e per suggellare un patto di amicizia iniziato tra le due città nel 2015. Fu l'occasione per sperimentare quella che si ritiene la più viva e particolare tradizione il del popolo georgiano: il pranzo. Le sue regole, l'abbondanza e la bontà dei cibi, i brindisi e la figura del Tamada permettono di leggere una, tra le più belle pagine, della tradizione di questo Paese.

Georgia e regione Svaneti-seconda parte
by Fernando Da Re, tour started June 2014, submitted 19 September 2015
language: it

Ma lo Svaneti, il vero "free Svaneti", inizia da Mestia. In questi luoghi arrivò con le proprie spedizioni Vittorio Sella, nipote del politico Quintino Sella che fondò il Club Alpino Italiano. Fotografò paesaggi, abitanti e loro usi. Le sue immagini sono ora oggetto di un pregevole volume del TCI e CAI che ne traccia la figura di fotografo alpinista esploratore. Una descrizione in quel volume della regione chiamata Soanezia, sembra scritta nei giorni in cui ci trovavamo dinnanzi agli stessi luoghi: "Non vidi mai natura alpestre così bella, così serena, grandiosa, pittoresca per forma e colorito. Temperatura deliziosa, calma adorabile, l'Usbha sublime fra cumuli leggeri. La Soanezia nelle belle giornate di ottobre è un vero Paradiso".

But Svaneti, the true "Free Svaneti", starts from Mestia. In these places he came with their shipments Vittorio Sella, nephew of the politician Quintino Sella who founded the Italian Alpine Club. He photographed landscapes, people and their customs. His images are now the subject of a remarkable volume of TCI and CAI that traces the figure of photographer mountaineer explorer. A description in the volume of the region called Soanezia, seems written in the days when we were in front of the same places: "I never saw alpine nature so beautiful, so serene, majestic, picturesque shape and color. Temperature delicious, adorable calm, the Usbha sublime among heaps light. The Soanezia on fine days of October is a true paradise. Read the book "Georgfia e

language: it

Quando viaggiare non è solo spostarsi da un luogo all'altro per ritemprare il fisico, ma un incontro con culture e storie differenti, il viaggio può dimostrarsi l'occasione per raccontare.

L'esigenza di scrivere nasce dalla consapevolezza di aver vissuto momenti unici e dal desiderio di condividerli. Per me è successo anche in questo viaggio e, dopo aver scritto il libro che rivela tutti i particolari, propongo al lettore una sintesi dell'itinerario, sicuro che apprezzandolo andrà a gustarsi anche la lettura più completa del libro "Georgia e svaneti,gamarjoba". Periodo di effettuazione del viaggio: prime tre settimane di giugno 2014.

Route in stages in Georgia first part. When travel is not only move from place to place to rejuvenate your body, but an encounter with different cultures and histories, the journey may prove an opportunity to tell.

The need to write comes from the awareness of having lived unique moments and a desire to share them. For me it happened on this trip and, after writing the book that reveals all the details, I propose to the reader a summary of the route, sure appreciating will also enjoy reading most complete book "Georgia e svaneti,gamarjoba". Period for the trip: the first three weeks of June 2014.

On my way, Zugspitze. The highest mountain in Germany
Tour of Northern Corsica
by Richard Evans, 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. is a very helpful site for anyone planning a trip
