Jerry's Alps Tour 2010
by Jerry Nilson, tour started 2010, submitted 17 April 2011

After yet another accident (hit by a car on the downhill and hospitalised with 5 ribs broken at many places, whole in one lung, head concussion, etc.), I had one training ride in two months before leaving for this year's Alps Tour. The tour was, however, very successful and I had a record number of height metres in one day (8272m) on the 277 km ride of the Monte Grappa Challenge. The weather was lovely throughout even if a bit too hot many times. Great places were visited, but I had problems with photos and then dropped my camera on the ground and only had iPhone photos for the second half.

Rediscovering the Portuguese Coast
by Augusto Lemos, tour started 2007, submitted 31 March 2011
Europe: Portugal
language: pt

Trip made in 2007 from Oporto to Lagos: 663 kms cycling and discovering the Portuguese coast.

We have a fantastic climate, beautiful landscapes, tasty meals... If the Portuguese coast was provided with a bike path in its totality, it could become one of the best cycle-tourist itineraries of summer.

Anyway, I promise you: if you try it, you‚ll want to repeat it!

ciclosinfonia nella terra di A. Salieri

Europe: Italy
language: it

Seconda parte.

Il percorso porta su terre di confine della Bassa Veronese, fino a poco tempo fa dimenticate dai più, fuori rotta per il turismo (se si escludono alcuni siti). Gli elementi di attrazione non mancano. Il tono dimesso delle strade e delle abitazioni, la semplicità della gente, l'assenza di grande arterie di traffico non ci devono tenere lontani da questa porzione di provincia, tranquillamente visitabile ''su due ruote'', che offre paesaggio e arte.

BicycleTOURing in the Pyrenées II. (France, Spain)
by Györgyi Gábor, tour started July 2010, submitted 9 March 2011
Europe: France, Spain, Andorra
language: en, hu

In 2010 my bicycletour went back to the Pyrenées to collect another paved roads going above 2000 m, to have all of them. By its start I cycled up to Mont Ventoux on its four different ascents in the same day to have the Galerien version of the Club des Cinglés du Mont Ventoux.

I saw 3 times the Tour de France: they were great feelings, unforgettable memories. I climbed legendary Tour de France climbs, like Col de Peyresourde, Aspin, Luz Ardiden, Aubisque, Pla d’Adet, Col d’Azet, etc. In Spain I was amazed by the huge rockwalls of the Ordesa canyon and the region of that and found wonderful (and one of the most beautiful roads) the East side of the Coll de Fanlo. In Spain with other ones I visited Cerler, Boi Taüll, a hardly known, but wonderful road to Presa L’lauset, then in Andorra 3 roads: one of them the legendary and nice Arcalis. I visited calm ascents like the idyllic valley of Lac Bouillouses and valley of Puigmal. After climbing Vallter I finished my tour in Barcelona.

The bicycletour was totally 2368 kms + 42996 m heightdifference.

Ciclosinfonia nella terra di Antoni Salieri
by Fernando Da Re, tour started October 2010, submitted 24 February 2011
Europe: Italy
language: it

Il percorso porta a scoprire la cosiddetta Bassa Veronese con il suo fascino discreto e melanconico. Richiama il rapporto fra uomo, terra ed acqua che da sempre convivono.

Lontano dai grandi centri del traffico, la natura si offre al visitatore lento, colorata in primavera, sonnacchiosa nell'afa estiva, avvolta nei colori sgargianti dell'autunno, sfumata e fiabesca tra le nebbie e le galaverne invernali. Percorso facile tutto in pianura, in parte sterrato, ma con fondo in buone condizioni.

language: de, en, es

Die Reise zum Horizont war ein Traum, eine verrueckte Idee. Heute ist sie Wirklichkeit, eine bewusste Entscheidung, eine Weltreise mit dem Fahrrad. Am 15. Maerz 2009 in Oldenburg (Deutschland) gestartet, ist das Ziel die ''weite'' Welt. Mit dem Anspruch, den Weg weitgehend mit dem Fahrrad zurueckzulegen, ist es ein Erfahren fremder Laender und Kulturen, auch bzw. besonders jenseits klassischer Touristenziele.

Cycling through & the East
by Ale & Max, tour started August 2008, submitted 10 February 2011

Part 3: From Trondheim to Larvik. National Cycle Route 9 and the NSCR.
by Stan Williams, tour started August 2008, submitted 10 February 2011
Europe: Norway

Excerpt from Day 25: Græsli to Røroswildlife.

We noticed some curious things about reindeer. Firstly although there was nothing to stop the reindeer from walking off the road and onto the tundra it chose to stay on the road. As it moved along the road its legs looked like (Damae's term) egg beaters all flailing in different directions. It looked like an unfeasibly ungainly animal that was testing the limits of Darwin's theory. However, even more suprisingly, once it finally found its way to the rough undulating tundra it moved with astonishing ease and grace. The head and body just seemed to glide across the landscape on top of those big hooves.

National Cycle Route 9 was an unknown quantity for us in 2008. There were no travelogues to be found of the whole route, nor any guide books. Armed with some home made maps we set off, boldly, from Trondheim. It was another route of contrasts, from the majestic to the banal with some surprises along the way, including a long ferry down Lake Femund.

The travelogue contains the story of each day's cycle with pictures and videos, a gallery, route and map information and trip statistics.

Part 2: From Florø to Trondheim - National Cycle Route 1
by Stan Williams, tour started August 2008, submitted 10 February 2011
Europe: Norway

Excerpt from Day 12: Florø to Barmen - getting going

All was quiet when we awoke. There was no sign of the Polish tradesmen nor their vans and we hadn't heard them leave. The sun was shining and the tent covered in dew. It was going to be another lovely day. It was also just a little exciting to be back to the coast of Norway and a part of it we'd not been to yet. We realised too that now we were following the coast our rate of progress would be determined not just by how much energy we had. For instead of following river valleys we were now cutting across the ends of fjords and hopping from island to peninsula and back which meant we would be at the mercy of ferry timetables.

The coast route, part of which forms the NSCR in Southern Norway, carries on past Bergen. We chose to follow it up to Trondheim and were treated each day to beautiful scenery, skies and some special places. Not to mention some challenging cycling.

The travelogue contains the story of each day's cycle with pictures and videos, a gallery, route and map information and trip statistics.

Day 18: Wild camping on Ona. Sunset over the North Sea.
Part 1: From Kristiansand to Florø - National Cycle Route 3
by Stan Williams, tour started July 2008, submitted 10 February 2011
Europe: Norway

Excerpt from Day 5: Haukeli to Røldal - going over Vågslid tunnel.

Looking at the old road we briefly entertained the idea of staying on the main road and cycling through the tunnel. The old road in contrast climbed sharply so it was tempting to take the main road. However we were following the route 3 so it was now time for a real challenge.

After packing in and gathering our energies that is exactly what we got. The further we climbed the more our muscles protested, our heart rates soared and the sound of the main road waned until it was no longer to be heard. It was the challenge of being a cyclist once more, alone in a landscape just you and the hill: the sound of your breath, the wind and the noise of the bike underneath you.

National Cycle Route 3 is a challenging and rewarding route, with several major climbs and varied landscape. We followed it to Førde where we headed out to Florø on the coast to start part two of the trip.

The travelogue contains the story of each day's cycle with pictures, a gallery, route and map information and trip statistics.

Europe: Italy

E come foglia cadente sospinta dal vento e che troverà dimora dopo lento girovagare, così senza meta può essere anche l'incontro della bicicletta con questo territorio. Di qua o di là, sul piano o sul pendio, in discesa o lungo il fiume, liberamente il cicloturista, trova emozioni nel lento procedere. La bicicletta disegna le sue evoluzioni e lungo il fluire delle linee, le ruote incrociano i liberi pensieri.

Provence and Languedoc Tour, 2009
by Suze, tour started May 2009, submitted 2 January 2011
Europe: France

I had long dreamed of visiting France, of seeing the southern countryside, eating what I imagined to be totally delicious food, and experiencing ancient and medieval art and architecture. I had longed to know something of an older culture than ours in Massachusetts. New England is old in the United States, but very young in the world. When I turned 60 I decided to do it, to finally visit France, and when there to travel on a cycle. I had ridden in the 1970s, but gave my Fuji ten-speed away long ago. I hadn't been on a bike since about 1980, but in August 2007, on a whim, bought a new bike and a year later rode it solo around Lake Champlain in Vermont. My husband wanted to go with me to France, so in May 2009 we rode from Avignon, France, in a looping tour of about 500 miles, mostly very flat, visiting Roman ruins and ancient cities. It was his first cycle tour ever, and so I planned an easy trip, staying in bed and breakfasts or hotels, saving time for visiting museums and historic sites. This trip went from major city to major city, with some very beautiful riding in between. It included a ride the length of the famous Canal du Midi, running from Agde to Toulouse. We traveled from Avignon to Orange, then into the Luberon, west to Arles, south to the Camargue, west again along the Mediterranean to Sète and back inland toToulouse. The journal was written after my 2010 visit to the Cévennes in France.

Quinta e ultima parte del percorso in bici di 800 km da Tallin a Riga

Non è facile attraversare la città di Riga per raggiungere Jurmala. Perfino la Esterbauer (nota casa editrice delle ciclabili d'Europa), prefigura il transito sulla strada principale a quattro corsie senza alcuna protezione per le bici. E' un vero peccato che nessuna istituzione delegata al cicloturismo consideri l'opportunità di strade alternative allungando magari un po' il percorso.

Scanuppia and other Trails in the Lago di Garda Area
by Erik Nomden, tour started October 2010, submitted 4 December 2010
Europe: Italy

The lake Garda is the mountain bike paradise of Europe and there are many roads that lead up into the mountains. Some of these roads are a challenge and some roads are a major challenge. And then there is one tremendous challenge: the Scanuppia, a concrete road that is leading upwards from Besenello to the small natural area of Scanuppia, which is the steepest ascent of Europe and maybe the steepest ascent of the World. Reports speak of gradients of 45 %. Whether it is possible to actually cycle there remains a mystery, yet there seem to be people who have made it. And so I would be able to do so myself, I try to convince myself. And while we are around now, we may just as well give it a try.

Quarta parte dell'itinerario in bicicletta di 800 km da Tallin a Riga.

Da Kabli a Limbazi 95 km.

Questo tratto percorre i primi 15 km in Estonia ed entra definitivamente in Lettonia. Interesse particolare di questi ultimi chilometri in terra estone è la lunga serie di spiagge. Tra il percorso in bicicletta e le spiagge, poche centinaia di metri di bosco. Tra le principali specie arboree, anche quella del pino marittimo. Campeggi e agriturismi con spiagge chiare e mare discretamente pulito, mettono a disposizione cavalli e biciclette, luoghi per pic-nic e aree per giocare. Il biglietto di addio della terra Estone, che nei pressi di Ikla segna il confine di stato, è una vecchia scritta in ferro su un muro stinto di cemento. Una linea immaginaria perché divenuta superflua e anacronistica.

Braunau (A) to Budapest (H) - Innweg & Donauradweg
by Ant, tour started August 2008, submitted 17 November 2010

Braunau am Inn to Budapest, a wonderful 900 Km tour along the Innradweg and Donauradweg in 11 days of actual riding including loops and various visits to nearby points of interest. No reservations were made in advance to leave us the freedom of choosing where to stop. I was carrying a tent in case of sold-out locations but we never used it once.

Our plans to keep the daily stages in between 60 and 90 Km - except for a couple of stages - proved a perfect choice to maximize the journey. See this, stop there for a yummy bite accompanied by a sparkling apple juice (Apfelsaft gespritz), and find accommodation where deemed practical. ''Pension'' style places with a family bias are the perfect choice for their coziness, the hosts' kindness and the good food to discover for reasonable prices. Return from Budapest by train with our bikes.

Loop through D, NL, B & L (including Moselradweg and Rheinradweg)
by Ant, tour started August 2009, submitted 16 November 2010

This 1,210 Km (756 mi) tour took us along the Mosel and Rhine rivers into the Netherlands, proceeding then to Belgium and Luxembourg. I had prepared the route with the aid of official GPS tracks of the cycling paths that we wanted to follow. Without the hand-held type GPS, the journey would have required the use of a consistent number of maps resulting in countless wasted time for continuous consultation. Despite the cycling paths are generally signposted they are not present at every turn. At times we found that some were even pointing to the wrong direction - maybe some prankster had fun with them.

The tracklog of our entire tour has been recorded and it's available for download. To spare the hassle of changing and recharging batteries continuously, my GPS unit was powered by a small solar station placed atop the handlebar bag. Precious and amazing satellite technology that sadly turns paper maps into romantic memories, it's a luxury I came to love quite quickly.

Etsch Valley Bike Path - South Tyrol

Europe: Italy

The last tour of the season - that is if the weather cooperates. The plan is as simple as it is elegant. We take the train from Munich to Landeck in Austria. From there it is a short bus ride to Nauders near the top of the Reschen Pass and the border to Italy. That saves riding in unpleasant traffic, not to mention a hefty climb! From Reschen in South Tyrol it's downhill (almost) all the way.

Budapest to Corfu 2010 - Over the Balkans
by Dave Roe, tour started June 2010, submitted 27 October 2010

The Budapest to Corfu route was planned to be as diverse as we could get it. A mixture of terrain, landscape and seascape. Throw a variety of cultures into the mix and an ''off the beaten track'' feel to the trip and the result is a recipe for enjoyment.

To get us warmed up a nice, we had a comfortable flat section in Hungary. This was followed up by a gradual climb up the River Drina into the heart of the Balkans.

The big climbs started after Bajina Basta in Serbia and continued until Kolasin, a ski resort in Montenegro. A 40 mile drop off the western edge of the Balkans was enjoyed into Podgorica, the Montenegrin capital. A very picturesque section follows, to the south side of Lake Skadarsko. It is a single track road containing big steep climbs along a mountainside with fantastic views over the lake to Albania.

The route then follows the Albanian coastline down to Sarande and over to Corfu. The section after Vlore is very quiet, taking in the Logara Pass. Himare is a great stop over being a nice little resort which is unspoilt for now. Sarande is much bigger but still has it's plus points. The spare slack at the end of the tour was put to good use on Corfu.
