|Cycling in Switzerland
tour started September 2009, submitted 14 December 2010
Without any doubt Switzerland is a very scenic country. The lakes and the mountains are very picturesque with the sound of cow bells in the background. If you are lucky you might even hear the enormous Alpine horn!
|Cycling along the Danube
tour started September 2010, submitted 14 December 2010
The Danube is the second longest river in Europe. A well marked bicycle path (the Donau Radweg) follows the Danube from its source at Donaueschingen in Germany to Vienna in Austria. The path is easy cycling and there is plenty of accommodation at the many towns and villages en route. We started in Eglisau in Switzerland as Zurich is the closest large airport to Donaueschingen.
|Cycling in France - Paris, Burgundy, Alsace and Provence
tour started September 2008, submitted 23 November 2008
Our 2008 cycling trip gave us a taste of France. We cycled in Paris, Burgundy, Alsace and Provence. We loved French bakeries and cake shops. This has had some not so good side effects - we came back with extra weight! And that's in spite of cycling over 1000km.
|Cycling in Denmark
tour started 2005, submitted 27 February 2008
A report from a cycling trip in Denmark in September 2005. We cycled from Copenhagen to Esbjerg on the North Sea over 3 weeks, hopping from island to island, following the Baltic Sea Route, and finishing on the North Sea Route. The weather was perfect and the marked bicycle routes we followed quiet and scenic. Denmark is great for cycling - it is mostly flat, has a well marked network of bicycle routes, and the cyclists have priority lanes in towns. Highly recommended for new and old cycle tourers. Our site has a report from our trip, itinerary, best photos, and Top 5 selection of best rides, experiences, food and accommodation. Enjoy and write to us if you have any questions!
