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 2002 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.

Iceland - A paradise for cyclists
by Travel Nerd, tour started 2009, submitted 20 October 2014

Wind, rain, mud and rubble, Iceland is known to bring man and material to its limits.

There was only one problem ... my girl friend! There are two things that should not meet under any circumstances: Her and Iceland (and certainly not with a bicycle). In order to save our relationship, I finally was holding a bye in my hand and was allowed to leave.

In addition, there is a picture gallery.

Bicycle tour Passau to Vienna (2014)
by Iris Mueck, tour started September 2014, submitted 25 September 2014

We did it again...: as nearly every year, we did the fall bicycle tour Passau (Germany) to Vienna (Austria). This time our Group has been complete. Raimund, vulgo the Chefe has joined us. He came with the train to Passau. We have carried one of our bicycles to Passau. After many complaints, he accepted this bicycle.

Our faith have been not so good this day, as Heide was in charge to carry Raimund's bicycle to Passau. Unfortunately she left it at Wels were we changed the train. The bicycle has been leaning for hours unwatched at the platform. At Passau: a big surprise: of course - no bicycle for Raimund. Telephone companies made a good business. Our first attempt to contact the German trains station officer was "we have no contact to the Austrian railroad company - everything is automated"... . Finally Heide found a guy at the ticketing counter who has private contact with a guy at Wels, were the bicycle actually was. Success! his guy checked, and the bicycle was still there. Unbelievable in this times we life. Heide went back with one of the next trains to Wels, picked up the bike and followed us to our accommodation.

Our tour continued smoothly the next days in extreme good weather condition. We have modified our tour a little in order to check for "new" accommodations. Enjoy the taken pictures and the report. Good luck to our followers.

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
