|Tour of ENG-FR-SP-IT-SLO-CRO-AUS-SUI-GDR-NETH
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.
|TransAlp Trip:Canadian Style
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.

Seconda parte del Tour in bicicletta da Trieste a Istambul
Si dice che il mondo sia piccolo, figuriamoci Sarajevo: sto per ripartire quando sulla bici trovo un biglietto degli amici cuneesi: tra i molti alberghi della città abbiamo soggiornato nello stesso, senza avere la fortuna di rivederci.
Second part of the Bike Tour from Trieste to Istanbul

|Trieste - Serajevo
tour started August 2012, submitted 8 December 2012
Trieste porta dell'est. Oltre questo confine finisce l'occidente e ci si immerge in una mescolanza di culture e religioni che convivono da secoli, non senza problemi, una affianco all'altra. Guerre, invasioni e lotte intestine hanno caratterizzato la storia dei Balcani, territorio la cui bellezza stupisce, così come non lascia indifferenti la disponibilità ed il senso di fratellanza con cui si viene accolti. Percorrere a ritroso le strade attraversate dai turchi cinquecento anni prima, visitare i palazzi della dominazione asburgica a Sarajevo, vedere la recente guerra balcanica negli edifici forati dai proiettili o nelle lapidi tutte vecchie di due decenni. Leggi tutto...
|TOUR OF SLOVENIA AND CROATIA 763 km in 10 Stages
tour started June 2001, submitted 17 October 2012
This is a round trip to Slovenia and part of Croatia. It starts from Trieste, in Italy, to go up north in Slovenia, following up the Soca River, and after Bovec to climb the Vrisic Mountain pass of 1611 m. Then all down to Bled and Lubjliana. Then to Novo Mesto and direct to Croatia (Zagreb). Then to Karlovac, with still many signs of the former 90's war, and return to Slovenia, through very quiet secondary roads, sometimes not paved. Postojna with the caves and finally return to Trieste. Steepy trip in the second stage, but the rest not very difficult. Traffic very pacific in Slovenia with many bike paths in Lubjliana. In Croatia traffic is busy and crazy.
|Short tour of Austria
tour started July 2012, submitted 16 September 2012
I have cycled in Slovenia and the Dolomites before and on both occasions due to poor weather and a lack of fitness did not ride a route I had previously planned. I decided to return to tackle two climbs - the Grossglockner in Austria and the Vrsic in Slovenia. It was well worth it. Here you will find details of the route, together with information on the hotels and restaurants I used. Learning the lessons, it could be turned from a very good to great tour.

|Dall'Adriatico al Baltico - Da Trieste a Riga 3^ parte
tour started July 2012, submitted 1 March 2012
" The show must go on", non ho alternative, riparto. Gli spazi si dilatano e anche qui, come in Polonia tra un paese e l'altro ci sono 10-15 chilometri di nulla, prati incolti, strette mulattiere sterrate che si diramano verso il nulla, rare mucche al pascolo e camioncini catapultati dalla macchina del tempo. Un chiosco di legno, in centro città è l'unica opportunità che ho per comprare qualcosa da mangiare, In pochi metri quadrati sono esposti i più disparati generi alimentari e non. Sembra il codice fiscale di un supermercato. Esco e trovo quattro bambini attratti dalla mia bici.

Katovice: un' edicola con esposti quotidiani e cavolfiori (immagino di propria produzione), un tram che si regge a stenti quasi investe un Suv fresco di concessionaria e oltre una strada ciottolata, una zona commerciale degna di qualsiasi città italiana: supermercato, articoli sportivi, bricolage e giardinaggio. Resto senza parole. Noiosa pianura , dove l'unica cosa da fare è contare i chilometri mancanti a Chestokova. segue...

|Dall' Adriatico al Baltico, da Trieste a Riga
tour started July 2011, submitted 31 January 2012
Il mare, la mia insegnante di inglese ed Auschwitz. Tre cose che apparentemente non hanno nulla in comune, ma che in realtà sono le basi che hanno fatto nascere questo ciclo-viaggio. Un viaggio dall' Adriatico al Baltico, la visita ad Oswiecim ( nome polacco di Auschwitz) e un salto a Riga, città natale della mia insegnante di inglese. Cartine alla mano, è stato sufficiente tirate una traccia (o meglio una Riga) aggiungere qualche deviazione turistica ed ecco preparato un viaggio.

Starting in Switzerland, biking across the Alps in eastern direction through the Dolomites of Italy to Ljubljana, capital of Slovenia; cruise around Mt.Triglav National Park, and finally mastering Austria's Southern Alps on the way back to Switzerland. Strong presence of snow and as a consequence the closure of some mountain passes caused many spontaneous changes of the route.

We don't just have our house on our bikes, we also have our two dogs, Jack and Paco, along for the ride. That's 60kg of furry luggage and another 50-60kg of non-furry luggage between the two of us! Needless to say we don't go fast but we do go everywhere, refusing to let our extra load stop us from tackling hills with grades of up to 18%. We have been on the road with our two dogs since July 2008. So far we have covered 17,000 kms and 18 countries in continental Europe.

I left home in September 2004. I was supposed to cycle to Tibet in 7-8 months. Until now, I never reached Tibet and I'm still on the road. A cold winter in Turkey make me change my itinery and then my travel's philosophy. I decided that the performance was not that important but the road itself brings me everything. In almost a total of 2 years where I worked as a safari tour guide in Namibia, I had enough money to continue and live the dream further and further. Soon, I will attempt to buy a boat in Amazonia and turn it into a bicyle-boat to cross the Amazonas on its bigest highways: the rivers! This tour is still in process and I will keep it updated on my website. nature, dirt roads, cultures and wildlife lover..

Then I will be on my own to complete the crossing of the Alps.

Il ciclismo è sofferenza. Il premio è la cima di una montagna o una città a 2000km da casa. Se questo premio vi sembra adeguato allora la domanda ``ma chi te lo fa fare ?'' ha già una risposta. Se non vi sembra abbastanza, semplicemente non potete capire chi pedala.
Cycling is suffering. The prize is the top of a mountain or a city 2000km far from home. If this prize seems you enough, then the question ``why do you do that ?'' already has an answer. If you don't find it enough, you just cannot understand cyclists.
