Viaggio al centro dei Balcani
by Stefano Lugli, tour started August 2005, submitted 1 April 2009
language: it

Albania, Bosnia Herzegovina, Croazia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Slovenia: un itinerario da non interpretarsi come una discesa negli ``abissi balcanici'', una sorta di ``Cuore di tenebra'' alla Conrad, ma un viaggio esplorativo in una regione che merita di essere vista con lenti diverse da quelle massmediatiche. Andateci e non ne rimarrete delusi!

E quando al tuo vento affidi le braccia, alzandole, imitando le centinaia di uccelli incontrati in precedenza e la tua libera mente formula le domande più diverse alle quali vorresti dare risposta, sai che il vento le raccoglie e in esso si perdono. Cycling in the wind è tutto questo. ..``e con selvaggia freschezza, con vigore mi soffiava in viso la felicità'' (A. Achmatova)

Summer cycling from Hungary to Morocco and across Canada
by Alfred Maleczki, tour started 2006, submitted 28 March 2009
language: hu

A lonely Hungarian cyclist who has the Summers free and likes to make new advantures on his bike.

Started with his short Croatian tours, but made it always longer, and in 2005 didn't stop before the 2700th kilometer in Greece. In the following year he decided to start the real adventure, to cycle out of Europe.

2007 was the year of cycling across Canada, the headwindy way - of course :) After this 9000km trip now he is in the planning stage of the South-American tour for 2009.

Ciclabile Berlino-Usedom
by Fernando Da Re, tour started August 2008, submitted 2 February 2009
Europe: Germany
language: it

L'isola di Usedom era alle spalle dopo un'ora e mezza di traghetto. Kamminke, porto di partenza, aveva lasciato un caro ricordo e la conoscenza di una triste pagina di storia: la collina di Golm.

La nuova ciclabile ora si chiama Radfernweg Berlin-Usedom e viene percorsa in senso contrario. Il suo logo, nuovo, moderno e verde, appare presto in prossimità dello sbarco ed è facile conformarvisi per la nuova e copiosa segnaletica.

Mantova-Parigi in bicicletta
by Matteo Malavasi, tour started July 2003, submitted 2 February 2009
Europe: Italy, France
language: it

Il diario del mio primo viaggio cicloturistico (da Mantova a Parigi in 12 giorni in campeggio) dalla preparazione fino alla realizzazione. Oltre al diario è disponibile una mappa interattiva contenente tutte le informazioni riguardanti distanze, sistemazioni ecc. Il diario risale al 2003 ma credo che possa comunque essere utile sosprttutto a chi si avvicina per la prima volta al cicloturismo e come me deve superare tutti i piccoli scogli derivanti dalla mancanza di esperienza.

Austrian Danube Bike Trail
by Ralph Herbert, tour started May 2008, submitted 13 January 2009
Europe: Germany, Austria

This was the first European bike tour I did after researching numerous alternatives. It begins in Vienna, goes to Regensberg, Germany and ends in Vienna. It was such an awesome experience that I have done two more since.

We packed our stuff in the panniers, stored our suitcases in a loft of the bike shop and hit the road. There is nothing like the feeling of leaving all your possessions behind except what you have on your bike, and striking out on a trip in a foreign country where you don't know the language, don't know a soul, and don't really care when you get back... It was finally lights out and I laid back in bed and it was such a surreal experience. Here I was on a night train to Munich, Germany, listening to the wind blow through the opened window, the clacking of the wheels on the track and the occasional squeal of the brakes as we pulled into the next station. Kinda like something out of an Agatha Christie novel.

Bicycletour in the Alps with legendary climbs: Mt Ventoux, Bonette, Agnello, Passo Mortirolo, Passo Stelvio, etc.
by Györgyi Gábor, tour started July 2008, submitted 6 January 2009
Europe: France, Italy, Austria

In 2008 I cycled 1807 kms and 32199 m height difference in the Alps. I climbed the 3 ascents of Mt Ventoux in a day, had a nice tour in Provence and at the Riviera. I had huge memories: riding my bicycle from the sealevel to the 2802m high Cime de la Bonette that I reached in the evening.

I had a dangerous descent in the rain from Col d'Izoard. Also climbed Colle Agnello (top in fog), and another fantastic day with an italian guy, Mauro Repetti as we did the Trittico Mortirolo : 3 ascent in 1 day. The last serious ``task'' was Passo Stelvio (2760m) from Tirano.

ciclabile costa del mare baltico (da Wanermunde a Usedom)
by Fernando Da Re, tour started July 2008, submitted 5 January 2009
Europe: Germany
language: it

Quando la ruota della bici si arresta sul bagnasciuga del mare, i sentimenti assumono due caratteristiche:

quella che rimanda al riposo e al benessere che il mare si presume possa dare, ma anche quella di partire, oltrepassare il confine visivo dell’orizzonte. Anche se i pensieri scivolano oltre, il bagnasciuga arresta la corsa dell’improprio mezzo e l’orizzonte rimane un insuperabile confine imposto.

Tour of the Alps 2008
by Jerry Nilson, tour started 2008, submitted 3 January 2009

The goal this Summer was to make sure I have climbed every asphalted (at least one side) pass throughout the whole of the Alps above 1700m (which I have detailed in a list at the cycloclimbing.com site). I also wanted to include some difficult roads that are not passes.

(Length: 4916.7 km for 29 days = 170 km/day; Height metres climbed: 105454 m for 29 days = 3636m/day.)

Ice Princess 1963 - The Big Freeze of 1963
by Jobst Brandt, tour started 1963, submitted 18 December 2008
Europe: Switzerland

The winter of 1963 brought the longest cold spell to central Europe in a many years, freezing the landscape deeper than it had in 100 years. Realizing that such weather probably would not occur again in my lifetime, if ever, I decided to do more than read about frozen lakes and deep frost [...] The ice was glassy smooth here [in Zürich], the sun and warmth from the city having melted the surface during the warmest part of the day. I walked down onto the lake and mounted my bicycle carefully. From having ridden on snow packed streets, I was aware that the best gear was the highest (50-13) to prevent undesired wheelspin that could dump me onto the ice. Traction would have been even poorer had it not been -20 Celsius.

Ciclabile Berlino-Copenaghen (fino Warnemunde)
by Fernando Da Re, tour started July 2008, submitted 16 December 2008
Europe: Germany
language: it

Certamente non si può dire che l’odierno stato di salute del mondo, malato di rumore, sia alla ricerca di silenzio.

Se per Pascal “il silenzio è la massima delle persecuzioni”, non sono pochi i medici che consigliano l’assenza di rumore come antidoto alla vita moderna. Grazie al silenzio irrompono nella mente salutari rumori. Il silenzio non è solo assenza di rumore è un “altrove” e può diventare “l’acustica dell’anima” (Novalis).

La bicicletta irrompe nella natura con la voce del silenzio. In questo itinerario di 400 chilometri (primo tratto del più lungo Berlino-Copenaghen), si può capire che quanto precedentemente asserito non è da considerare un’ingannevole retorica. Qui il silenzio ci abita regalmente nelle innumerevoli stanze di uno Schloss (castello) che si chiama natura. Il silenzio non parla, non scrive e non compone musica. Eppure si fa sentire. Una bicicletta può bastare per ascoltarlo.

Cycling in France - Paris, Burgundy, Alsace and Provence
by Glen and Margaret Netherwood, tour started September 2008, submitted 23 November 2008
Europe: France

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.
If you are planning a similar cycling tour you will find a lot of useful information in our trip Itinerary and day-by-day Trip Report. If you would like to see the beauty of cycling in France do not miss the Best Photos & Videos. You may also be interested in our recommendations for the best places to see, stay and eat in Top 5.

Burgundy is a great place for cycling: whether your tour is to be short or long, flat or hilly, with emphasis on nature or architecture - in Burgundy you have your choice. For part of our short visit we followed bike paths following the Canal de Bourgogne and Canal du Nirvenais, otherwise we cycled on small roads with almost no traffic through pleasant, but hilly, countryside. We visited Auxerre, Tonnerre, Avallon, Pontigny, Semur-en-Auxois ...
