Tour of ENG-FR-SP-IT-SLO-CRO-AUS-SUI-GDR-NETH
by Michael Simmons, tour started June 2008, submitted 13 December 2013

I always dreamed of bicycling through Europe and climbing as many of the famous climbs of the Tour de France and Giro Italia as possible. My tour ended up being for almost 10 weeks, 3020 miles/4860 kilometers, and I pedaled through 10 countries. I loved the entire tour but 2 aspects stand out: 1)France stands out for my favorite cycling, for the amazing secondary road system and because I got to climb, the Tourmalet, Aubisque, Peyresourde, Aspin, Mont Ventoux, Alpe D'Huez, Lauteret; and 2) I visited the home villages of three of my grandparents in Slovenia and Croatia. Crossing Italy I opted for the Italian Riviera and Tuscany, but later wished I had pedaled across the Lakes Region and the Dolomites. And because of factors out of my control I had to cut my trip short so I skipped my plans of zig zagging across Switzerland. Enjoy my journal and the pictures.

We do this by writing about our experiences in our blog, posting articles about people, places and their culture in our website and giving live presentations in schools. We are moved by the strong believe that bike travel is an excellent way to cultivate empathy in our world, not only towards human beings but to other living species. We hope you have fun browsing through our site and we will be happy to hear from you. We look forward to receiving your questions and reading your comments. We are at your service.

TransAlp Trip:Canadian Style
by Dave Pearce, tour started July 2013, submitted 20 November 2013

This trans alp cycling trip is our 5th in Europe and it is not too much different from the others except being twice as long.We are an older couple who doesn't mind a little bit of hard mountain touring with all of our gear and being sort of self sufficient as this is what we do when on long trips in Canada, canoeing, backpacking, cycle touring, when there are few facilities. All of our stays were in campsites except at the end and 98% of our meals were prepared or cooked. We usually do not rely on buses or trains and except for 150km, we carried all our gear.This was a 3800KM, 36,000m, 60 day trip that was even more spectacular than our other journeys.

The Alps are so grand and the infrastructure so good that cycle touring around and over the mountains is a lot of fun. Hope that readers can get a lot of good information from this trip report as we have received so much advice from the Trento Bike Pages in the past.

A month of biking took us from Munich to Venice over the Alps. We did not bike up the Alps. Check the site to find out how we did get up. We went up the Inn river from Rosenheim through Innsbruck to Landeck. Once over the Alps through the Reschen Pass, we followed a beautifil Adige (Etsch in German) river. The Adige flows through Bolzano, Trento to Verona. Along the Po river it was a zig zag route to Venice.

A mountain pass safari in the western alps
by Michael Fiebach, tour started May 2012, submitted 30 December 2012
Europe: France, Italy, Germany
language: en, de

This last spring and summer I was lucky enough to explore one of the world's most popular bicycle climbing areas in the world: the western alps. So I took lots of notes,and many pictures of my bike rides over more than 50 passes and summits.

Some of my favorite memories are these crossings: Col et Tunnel de Parpaillon , Col de la Croix de Fere , Col de la Cayolle

But summits do not have to be that high to impress with their beauty: For example the D32 summit in Utelle, or a ride over Col d'Eze or Colle Langan on the glitzy Cote d'Azure.

A Lubecca, alle biciclette vogliono un gran bene. Quei pali zincati sui quali le biciclette vengono legate, diventano strumenti per dimostrare il loro attaccamento.

Rivestiti di cotone e lana lavorata ad uncinetto, traforata o a patchwork, ne fanno un elemento colorato che non crea alcun danno al telaio della bicicletta sui quali viene legata.

In Lübeck, People love bicycles too much. Those galvanized poles on which bicycles are tied, they become tools to demonstrate their attachment. Covered in cotton wool and crochet, patchwork or perforated, make it a colored element that does not create any damage to the bicycle frame on which it is linked.

Hamburg and vicinity tour - November 2012
by Iris Mueck, tour started November 2012, submitted 23 November 2012
Europe: Germany

I tried to avoid to fall into an early Winter sleep... Tried to keep my tired bones fit. As I have been in an refreshment email contact with a biker couple, living nearby Hamburg, we have quickly made a plan to meet and cycle around. I have been knowing Hamburg from the past, but Hamburg today, is even more bigger, more modern (more expensive...).

What impressed my most, beside the friendly attitude of Hamburgers citizens, was the wide variety of music shops. We had the chance to participate a 'concert' in one of Hamburgs music pubs, the 'Knust', whereas we have seen on stage Ryan Bingham and Valerie in the pre-program... Just wonderful!

In quei 17 km sopra l'isola ho ascoltato i versi della natura di Sylt. Un po' brughiera, un po' erica, un po' vento, un po' uccello, un po' innamorato, un po' poeta, mettevo alla prova i miei sensi.

In those 17 km above the island I heard the verses of the nature of Sylt. A bit heath, a little heather, a little wind, a little bird, a little loveer, a little poet, put to the test my senses.

"Ogni giorno racconto la favola mia, la racconto ogni giorno a chiunque tu sia." (Renato Zero) E' piacevole canticchiare durante le lunghe pedalate in solitaria. La mia favola ha inizio... Lascio la calda ed afosa Verona con un treno regionale sporco e scomodo per raggiungere Fortezza e prendere il trenino trentino pulito e comodo con destinazione S. Candido. Intorno alle ore 12,00 m'impedalo in direzione Matrei. Da qui in poi ci sarà sempre la temperatura fresca.

Elbe bicycle tour 2012 - section Hamburg to Dresden
by Iris Mueck, tour started September 2012, submitted 30 September 2012
Europe: Germany

The river Elbe bicycle trail tour is about 561 kilometers from Hamburg to Dresden (including a lot of search, trial and error... and dead end escapes...). The Elbe bike trail exists, but it is not made for miles eater riders, like me..., on a race bike. The trail is for bicyclists, who travel on a trekking bike, which is made for bumpy roads, gravel and dirt...; moreover for travelers who does 30 kilometers a day, stopping on each sign and picture buildings and landscape all over, and have many stops on coffee shops on the way.... What I did, is somehow wrong, and it does not really reflect the beauty of the entire trail. Therefore, I ended up on several dead ends in gravel and dirt, what makes me ride more or less on side roads. [...] If one is a good navigator (with a nose of intuition) and a little GPS navigator, those wouldn't have to much trouble. Enjoy the report and the pictures! Good luck to our followers!

Descrizione percorso 800 km. in bicicletta da Goteborg a Lubecca

Le case apparivano irreali in quella luce forte e sembravano avvolte in un silenzio che il chiasso e il rumore dei veicoli potevano a stento turbare". Fu solo per pochi istanti che il porto di Skagen ci mostrò le sue luci e le sue ombre, perché il sole si addormentò dietro una grigia coltre di nubi e, in fretta, fresche gocce ci convinsero ad affrettare i nostri passi e spegnere definitivamente le fotocamere golose di tramonti.

This year's summer tour started in Amsterdam. After visiting Haarlem und then Leiden, we continued on to Den Haag, Utrecht and Arnhem. We visited the Veluwe National Park, crossed the border at Bocholt and rode on to Münster and then Kassel for this year's Documenta. We then followed the Fulda, Sinn , Main and Altmühl river valleys - all separated by hills that had to be crossed. When we reached the Danube, we felt we were almost home and it was smooth sailing to Munich.

Greedy Euro Bike Tour
by Marco Bacchin , tour started 2012, submitted 9 March 2012
language: en, it

Da lì a là is an Italian expression meaning roughly hither and thither, and this summarize my will, my restless temper of changing place every so often. I'm biking around Europe stopping from time to time when my attention is captured by an outstanding recipe a traditional food or a weird one. Pedalling alone is just fine, but together with other cyclists, especially from the country I'll be riding at the moment is just fantastic: less fatigue, more fun. You can get a look at the Euro-Tour map to get a gist of what'll be the route I'll follow in this year. If you're biking in the some zone, or nearby or you're going to start something similar and you'll like to have a ride together, let me know. Get in touch! Sys

From Bavaria to the Baltic Sea and Back
by Suzanne Gibson, tour started May 2011, submitted 29 December 2011

We wanted to take a long door-to-door trip and, hurrah, we made it. Our route went from Munich to Bremen, the Baltic, the Polish border, Prague and back to our front door where we started. Travelling through different parts of Germany and a bit of the Czech Republic, we saw many different landscapes, people, architecture. In relatively densely populated Europe things are close together and there were seldom long stretches with nothing of interest.

Danube Bike Path - A bike tour to all the family
by Augusto Lemos, tour started 2008, submitted 30 June 2011
language: pt

Danube river is 2.900 km length, it crosses eight countries and it flows into Black sea. The bike path that follows the river is Europe's most famous and most loved bike trip! Along the way there's a unique natural, cultural and historical richness. Furthermore, the bike path has a lot of infrastructures designed for cyclists and you can chose between north or south bank of the river.

Probably, there aren't many places in the world where travel by bike can be so pleasant and so easy! And where you can enjoy so much the landscape and places to visit.

This trip which I describe was done between Passau (in Germany) and Bratislava, via Vienna.

Lake Constance & Silvretta
by Iris Mueck, tour started June 2011, submitted 16 June 2011

We have missed that tour (until now). Lake Constance in combination with the Silvretta climb from the Montafon valley. So, we did it.

The lake Constance round trip is a very busy area for bicyclists. Better NOT to go on the vacation period. You will find all kind of sport activities (and nervous car drivers, particular the professional drivers, like bus and taxi cabs). But families with children can cause some more unexpected stop. Expect the unexpected!

Silvretta looks like a total different world. Not so many bicyclists (too steep & too long). But a very good and rather new bike path from Feldkirch to Bludenz, and the very standard‚ one from Bludenz up to Gaschurn.

We have chosen the Silvrettta as a sort of training in order to check our shape for the planned Sella Ronda tour and the Stilfser Joch tour. Enjoy the pictures on our report. Good luck to all the followers!
