Spain -- bicycle tours of two piciclisti who only have bikes in their mind.
by Pinar & Paolo Pinzuti, tour started October 2007, submitted 9 July 2008
Europe: Spain
language: en, it, tr

We visited Spain in October 2007, for 14 days and our route followed from Malaga on the Mediterranean coast, north to Seville, Cordoba and Granada.

The roads varied in condition. Mostly they were in good shape although some of the back roads could be bumpy after being patched over several times. If we had one complaint about Spanish roads it was that sometimes we struggled to find a quiet alternative to busy routes and in cities like Seville it seemed almost impossible to leave without running into endless motorways.

Germany -- bicycle tours of two piciclisti who only have bikes in their mind.
by Pinar & Paolo Pinzuti, tour started September 2007, submitted 9 July 2008
Europe: Germany
language: en, it, tr

We decided to make our honeymoon in Southern Germany at the border to Switzerland, riding our bikes from the Lake Constance (Bodensee) to the Lake Königsee. We did a one-week-tour in August 2007. The cycle route between the lakes sets out from Lindau toward the Allgäu hills. Tiny villages dot the landscape between forests and meadows. Offering a view over the Allgäu Alps, the route goes on to Füssen with its lovely houses. Passing the gorgeous Neuschwanstein Castle, Bad Tölz on the Isar, the route continues through the Upper Bavarian picture-book scenery to Lake Tegernsee and on to Lake Schliersee. The tour?s final destination is right in the heart of the Alpine countryside of the Berchtesgaden National Park: Lake Königssee is truly a crowning finale to a princely cycle tour.

language: en, de, fr

Die zweite Tour 2008 führte mich von Lissabon, entlang der Steilküste im Westen bis in die Sierra de Monchique. Hier regnete es sehr stark, deswegen fuhr ich wieder zum Meer um schließlich den südwestlichsten Punkt von Europa zu besichtigen. Ein Felgenschaden musste am vorletzten Tag in Lagos repariert werden. Die Algarve im nördlich umfahrend erreichte ich nach 680 Kilomtern mein Ziel in Faro. Auf diesem Kurztrip wurde ich mehrmals zum Essen eingeladen und lernte den ursprünglichen Teil Portugal fernab der Touristenströme kennen.

Un voyage entre Toulouse et Gibraltar à vélo couché - A trip from Toulouse to Gibraltar on a recumbent bike
by legrosseb, tour started May 2007, submitted 4 June 2008
Europe: Spain, France
language: fr, en

¡ Mira la bici ! c'est un site entièrement monté avec la pipe et le couteau, consacré au voyage à vélo couché et qui parle de ce premier périple en 2007 à travers l'Espagne entre Toulouse et Gibraltar.

Mais ¡ Mira la bici ! ( ``Mate le vélo!'' en espagnol) n'est pas seulement le carnet d'un voyage à vélo couché à travers l'Espagne, c'est aussi le point de convergence entre le voyage à faible empreinte environnementale, la photographie et le vélo couché.

Et puis parce qu'internet m'a été d'une aide précieuse pour la préparation de mon périple, ces pages vous en diront un peu plus sur ce petit bout de chemin et donnent le maximum d'informations sur ce voyage en particulier, sur le voyage à vélo en général sans oublier deux ou trois mots sur le vélo couché.

Giro del lago di Costanza (Bodensee tour)
by webmaster - castione.ch, tour started July 2006, submitted 26 May 2008
language: it

Il lago di Costanza (Bodensee) è un percorso ideale per i ciclisti grazie alla bellezza del paesaggio e all'abbondanza di strutture appositamente pensate per loro: dalle piste ciclabili agli enti turistici e alberghi che offrono una particolare accoglienza con tanto di depositi custoditi, assistenza tecnica e materiale informativo a disposizione.

Il periplo completo del lago attraversa tre stati (Svizzera, Germania e Austria) e misura circa 260 km, considerando anche la propaggine occidentale formata dai bacini dello Zeller See e dell'Untersee; non ci sono praticamente rilievi; è possibile abbreviare il percorso sfruttando una delle numerose rotte che collegano le due sponde del lago (Bodensee-Schiffbetriebe). Lungo il tragitto si incontrano villaggi con le abitazioni dalla tipica architettura del Baden-Württenberg e alcune splendide isole e penisole collegate alla costa da ponti e quindi facilmente accessibili anche alle biciclette: Mainau, Reichenau e Lindau, su cui sorge il nucleo dell'omonimo villaggio. In tutta la regione si trovano numerosi centri balneari e termali oltre a un'infinità di spiagge che ben si prestano a un intermezzo rilassante fra una tappa e l'altra.

Europe: Italy
language: it

Via dei Saraceni: 12 (junior) e 13 luglio (senior) 2008, tracciato di Salice d'Ulzio (Souze d'Oux).

Competizione aperta a tutti, professionisti e non. 38 km con un dislivello totale di 1050 metri quasi completamente su sterrato.

Itinerario:
Partendo dal centro di Sauze D'Oulx ci si inoltra all'interno del Parco Naturale del Gran Bosco di Salbertrand; attraversando un fitto bosco di conifere si giunge sulla strada più alta d'Europa tra la cresta spartiacque che divide la Valle di Susa dalla Valle Chisone. Questo è il tratto più impegnativo, con una salita di 15 km che permette di raggiungere la vetta del monte Genevris a quota 2540 mt. Arrivo in leggera salita.

Pyrenäen
by Conrad Philipp, tour started July 2006, submitted 31 March 2008
Europe: France, Spain
language: de

Die Suche nach einer neuen Herausforderung führte uns diesmal ins Grenzgebiet von Frankreich und Spanien. Es stand nichts geringeres auf dem Programm als die Pyrenäen von West nach Ost zu überwinden. Wir starteten in Bilbao und radelten zwei Etappen am Atlantik bis zur Grenze nach Frankreich. Auf der französischen Seite fuhren wir dann in die Pyrenäen. In den Bergen konnten wir viele bekannte Pässe abfahren. Zudem erlebten wir äußerst gastfreundliche Franzosen und grandiose Landschaften.

Das Wetter spielte auch fast immer mit. Bis auf zwei Tage hatten wir den gesamten Tag über Sonnenschein und Temperaturen von knapp 40°C im Schatten. Auch eine durchgebremste Felge, Mückenschwärme am Mittelmeer und die zahlreichen Stunden bergauf konnten uns nicht unsere Motivation nehmen. Nach zahlreichen anstrengenden Bergettappen hatten wir das Mittelmeer erreicht. Von dort war es nicht mehr weit bis nach Barcelona wo wir unseren Urlaub mit einigen Cocktails entspannt ausklingen ließen.

Erst hatte ich vor, die Tour-de-France-Strecke (einmal rund um Frankreich) abzufahren. Aber für dieses Vorhaben konnte ich keinen begeistern. Als zu strapaziös wurde mein Plan bezeichnet. Ich war mir mittlerweile selbst nicht mehr sicher gewesen, ob eine komplette Runde nicht zu viel für mich ist. Ich plante also um. Es entstand die Idee, zum Tour-de France-Finale nach Paris zu fahren. Stilecht sollte die Fahrt von unserer Haustür [in Jena] starten. [...]

Wir hatten nun acht Tage Zeit, bis nach Paris zu kommen um Zabel, Ullrich, Armstrong ... zu sehen. Mehr als 1000 Kilometer lagen vor uns. Die gnadenlose Sommerhitze forderte ihren materiellen und körperlichen Tribut.

Korsika

Im Herbst kamen Robert und Conrad auf die spontane Idee eine Radtour zu starten. Aufgrund der fortgeschrittenen Jahreszeit kamen nur noch mediterane Gebiete für die Tour in Frage. Nach einer Nachtschicht vor dem Rechner und über den Atlanten entschieden wir uns für Korsika. Die Insel galt als gebirgig jedoch schreckte uns das nicht ab, denn umso schöne Aussichten erhofften wir uns von den Gipfeln. Auf der Insel angekommen erwartete uns zuerst bedeckter Himmel. Die Wolken verzogen sich jedoch bereits am zweiten Tag und so hatten wir traumhafte Aussichten am Cape Corse.

Während unserer zweiwöchigen Tour sind wir mehr als 1200 km gefahren und konnten die Insel einmal umrunden.

Das Wetter war sehr angenhem: kein Regen, viel Sonne und nur teilweise Gegenwind. Zudem war die Landschaft sehr abwechslungsreich. Von Traumstränden bis zu Gebirgspässen war alles dabei.

Einmal mehr kurzentschlossen entschied ich mich für eine kleine Radtour. Es war eigentlich keine Tour, vielmehr war es ein 1-Tages-Trip.

Camino de San Vicente Mártir
by Salva Raga, tour started July 2007, submitted 18 March 2008
Europe: Spain
language: es

La Asociación VIA VICENTIUS VALENTIAE está recuperando el CAMINO DE SAN VICENTE MARTIR, un camino histórico de Huesca a Valencia para senderistas y ciclistas que rememora los pasos del santo, cuando en el siglo IV fue apresado en Zaragoza junto al Obispo Valero por los soldados romanos enviados por el Cónsul Daciano y trasladado a Valencia para sufrir martirio ante la negativa a renunciar a su fe. Así la difusión del conocimiento de este hecho provocó en los siglos siguientes una corriente de peregrinaciones desde toda Europa hasta Valencia para visitar los restos del mártir en San Vicente de la Roqueta, convirtiéndose este fenómeno en algo muy anterior a las peregrinaciones medievales a Santiago de Compostela.

Touring Switzerland
by Ben and Beth Elderd, tour started September 2007, submitted 15 March 2008
Europe: Switzerland

After a year's sabbatical from bicycle touring we could not wait to get back in the saddle. After researching our options and spending countless hours on various countries' Web sites, we decided on Switzerland because of the beauty of the country and their national cycling routes. We were not disappointed.

The most difficult part was eliminating routes. Not being able to make up our minds, we decided to do a little of everything - lakes, mountains, rivers, waterfalls, national forests and rolling green pastures with ubiquitous Swiss cows and their bells.

Our journal includes lots of photos along with a daily log and an equipment list.

Europe: Denmark

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!

So just how interesting can grass verges get?
by Stan Williams, tour started May 2007, submitted 16 December 2007
Europe: Holland

A three day trip through the loveliest middle bits of the Netherlands on recumbent trikes.

Ten minutes on KMX trikes at the Bikemotion Benelux Fair in Autumn 2006 convinced us that recumbent trikes were actually very cool. A few months later at another fair in Essen in Germany, we were able to try out an ICE Trice and a HP Velotechnik Scorpion. They were cool too!

We did, however, realise that there was a big difference between ten minute sessions in a crowded exhibition hall and using these HPV's on a daily basis. So, when Damae found a shop that hired out trikes, we picked a three day weekend in late May of 2007 and headed off towards the 'Hoge Veluwe' on a Trice and a Scorpion.

So how did it go and what have we learned? Well there are lots of thoughts and impressions in the travelogue of the trip together with videos and pictures. There is also a short comparative review of the Trice and Scorpion which draws our thoughts together. Last but not least, some conclusions and our recommendations. Do still think they are cool? Of course we do!
