You will find descriptions of most trails in the vicinity of Uppsala here. There are some absolutely marvelous trails around. In Uppsala we have excellent relationships with hikers, hunters, dog owners, land owners, bird watchers, joggers etc, and we like to maintain good relations, so there are some local ethics.

There are several areas that offers excellent MTB-trails around Uppsala. The descriptions here are in Swedish but can easily be used by non-swedish speaking people. The maps and the gradings will be sufficient to get you started.

by Sven Hörberg
language: de

A huge of collection of reports of tours, some by bicycle, some by other means, some in Europe, some elsewhere, including Sven's own tours

A rider's digest. Sections on humour, essays, travel, images.

If you like to read as much as you like to cycle, this is the site for you. Just consider the following entry from the BR dictionary: wheelbase. The shortest distance between two axles on the same bicycle in a Euclidean universe. Standard advice is that long wheelbase models are ideal for touring, because of the extra stability they impart. A unicycle has no measurable wheelbase, ergo it is not recommended for touring.

In BikeReader you can expect to find stories and entertainment. And we've got a non-fiction shelf, too. Helpful advice -- tips on bike maintenance, health, etc. -- isn't our raison d'être (French for 'thing'), but we'll link to sites which seem particularly good in that regard. Bear in mind that not everything in BR will have 'BICYCLE' written in large letters all over it, but a bike will always be propped up against the story line.

This site was conceived as an online archive of previously offline material: a reprinter of magazine articles. However, content will also include some stories available elsewhere on the web, as we aim to be a one-stop shop for quality bicycle writing.

Cycling in France
by Margaret & Graham Robb
Europe: France

Useful commentaries and plenty of fine photographs for their trips:


I woke each morning, excited as a child on Christmas morning,wondering what adventures would be unwrapped for us that day. Though we were never disappointed, there were days which stood out as particularly magnificent. The journey from Cucugnan to Lagrasse, though hard, took us along beautiful gorges and woods from where we would emerge to wonder at the amazing sights of former Cathar castles high on inaccessible hill-tops. The quiet and simple attractions of the Canal du Midi led us into the bustling pink brick city of Toulouse. The craggy and rugged mountains of the Pyrenees, full of cycling legends and fantastic views, tested our stamina over several days. Perched along a mountain side, the Cirque du Litor was a fairy-tale path between two mountain tops and a place to which I would gladly return.

Bicycling à la Française
by Barbara Leonard
Europe: France

I am an American bicyclist whose focus, since 1979, has been racing. [...] In the fall of 1996 I moved to France and in February, 1997 joined a French cyclotouring club. Except for some individual training and some rides at the velodrome, all my riding is with the club. [...] My pages provide information about French cycling organizations, the types of rides available through these organizations, and my cycling experiences as a member of a French club.

Includes direct experience on La Marmotte, Riding at Longchamp, VCL Tour du Vexin, La Randonnée de Gresivaudan, Le Reblochon, The Weekend at Auxi-le-Chateau, Levallois Criterium, Velodrome La Cipale. With an important note on Bicycles on Trains in France, 1998

by Tim Burleigh
Europe: Germany

You will learn about what to bring, how to pack, tips on touring and using the trains. The many interesting travelogues have insights into German culture and even a little history. If you cannot find a tour that fits your needs among the ones we describe (probably because we have not written one up yet) feel free to invent your own tour and tell us about it. The information presented here on this site is accurate but, where possible, I have injected humor. Travelogues can be boring but a little humor helps improve their readability.

Zwei Räder für's Leben (Stord, Norwegen)
Singletrack magazine
Europe: UK

A quarterly magazine aimed squarely at trail riders in the best traditions of the magazines that have been and gone. We make no apologies for taking inspiration from MTB World and Max MTB. They were great mags, full of the sort of riding that the majority of mountain bikers have adopted as their lifestyle. In fact the buzzwords 'Inspiration' and 'lifestyle' are key to the philosophy behind the magazine.

Europe: UK

This site is intended to offer ideas for cycle trips in and around SE Scotland and NE England. The routes are not graded in any way but comments should give some idea of their nature. They are not meant to be prescriptive but are just suggestions - obviously you can adapt them to suit your own needs.

A collection of some 84 (as of October 2005) routes in the triangle Edinburgh-Carlisle-Newcastle. Click the number on the map to access the page for the relevant tour - you will get a detailed description and a map of the tour. A very fine job, John!
