Isole dell'Estonia-Hiiumaa, Saaremaa, Muhu
by Fernando Da Re, tour started June 2010, submitted 20 October 2010
Europe: Estonia
language: it

Seconda parte del ciclotour da Tallin a Riga Dal traghetto si avvicina una terra senza nessuna costruzione, solo verde di alberi, alti slanciati, fitti, regolari: Hiumaa l'isola incontaminata. Una scoperta che mette serenità e paura nello stesso tempo. Solo tu, la bicicletta e il bosco. La strada senza traffico che porta verso Kardla, capitale dell'isola, transita prima da Puhalepa, dove la chiesetta del XIII sec. mostra il singolare pulpito in pietra, poi dal paesino di Surremoisa, dove una villa sembra quasi un castello. Si percorre la ciclabile denominata Eurovelo 1. I 30 km che dividono ancora da Kardla (arrivo di questa prima giornata iniziata con il trasporto in bus delle bici fino al traghetto ad Haapsalu) sono tutti in mezzo ad una foresta di abeti e larici. La ciclabile è una stretta linea laterale a fianco della carreggiata. La pioggia che scende da quando il traghetto ha raggiunto l'isola, favorisce l'andatura sostenuta facendo passare quasi inosservato l'intatto paesaggio di questo tragitto. Nota di colore ! sono i variopinti sacchetti di nylon a protezione dei nostri calzari.

Bicycle tour to the North of the Austrian 'forest quarter' (Waldviertel)
by Iris Mueck, tour started October 2010, submitted 20 October 2010
Europe: Austria

Extremly good weather called us to another late fall tour. By train to Retz and further with the 'Reblausexpress' to Drosendorf. Starting late, upon arrival at Drosendorf, we have been heading for Karlstein, whereas we had our lunch. Then we have been riding to Waidhofen an der Thaya. A hidden beauty... Continuing to Zwettel, were we had our night. Zwettel a 'silent' city. Day distance 90 kilometers only. The next morning has been frosty... As nice Zwettel was for a stay, to leave is strange: just high frequent highways The good thing: we hit the Kamptal dam in fall - a wonderful landscape picture has been our award! We have been heading for Krems. Luch at Senftenberg. At Krems we found access to the well known Danube valley bike path. We followed this way down to the suburbs of Vienna. Last stop: Greifenstein (whereas we have been entering the train again...). This days distance: 122 kilometers. Enjoy the pictures! Good luck to all the followers!

Bicycle tour to the 'smallest city' in Austria
by Iris Mueck, tour started October 2010, submitted 20 October 2010
Europe: Austria

A tour to the North Country... (were the winds hit hard the border line...) Hardegg, known as Austria's 'smallest city', was worth to go... I believe, we have been lucky catching the very late end of summer... The tour leads us to the North border (Czech) - only a pedistrian bridge is open for traffic. A romantic side way leaded us to Ciszov. There was a monument seen: The last piece of the 'Iron curtain' - see pictures. Thanks god this time has passed. We had a wonderful lunch at the city of Znojmo. Then, after, some good Czech beer, we travelled home (by bicycle of course) on sideways to Retz. To early to enter the next train back to Vienna... So, we followed the road to Hollabrunn and in the next Minute we caught at a train to our home, Brunn am Gebirge Overall distance of our day ride: 80 kilometers Enjoy the pictures!

Europe: Austria

A tour to romantic sideways to the inner Lower Austrian alps. Very good and inviting late summer weather 'called me to order'... The late summer weather has been remaining for another day... The circle to the lower Austrian alps comprises round 120 kilometers in total. Starting nearby Payerbach..., hitting the Northern part of the Styria county... including climbs: Preiner Gschaid, Lahnsattel, Kernhofer Gscheid... Lucky as I was, a tracker passed, and I have been able to slip into the wind shade... This tracker pulled me round 45 kilometers with a speed above 40 kilometers/hour... Distance from Hohenberg to Sankt Poelten... The result: a wonderful speed average (28 km/hr)

Eurovelo 6 Frankreich - Teilstrecke Basel nach Besancon und retour, ca. 300km
by Alois Mayr, tour started September 2010, submitted 1 October 2010
Europe: France
language: de

Gerade erst fertiggestellt: Die französischen Teilstücke des Eurovelo-Radweges 6 von Basel nach Nantes. Mit großem Aufwand wird er beworben, schließlich ist auch offensichtlich viel Geld in diese Verbindung gesteckt worden. Da wir (2 Personen) den westlichen Abschnitt der Loire ab Orleans schon mehrmals gefahren sind, ist diesmal Basel nach Besancon dran. Die Strecke entlang dem Rhein-Rhone-Kanal und dem Doubs soll schön sein. Besancon wird in allen Reiseführern gelobt. Die Realität weicht dramatisch davon ab.

Late summer to the Pielachtal Valley

My Styrkeproven
by Iris Mueck, tour started June 2000, submitted 9 September 2010
Europe: Norway

Well, I have participated this tour 4 times. [...] It is partly a race. The Norwegian teams are very strong. They do the distance of 540 kilometers in less than 14 hours, which results in an average of round 40 kilometers/hr.

There is a rather 'high' mountain to climb. The Dovrefjell mountain is only round 1.000 meters high. But remember: you start at sea level. And as all the little rivers cross the climb, you got the feeling you do this mountain three times... There is only one receipt to finish the tour: ride your own speed! Feel well. Do not burn out in strong groups. Lillehammer is key station. Only 180 kilometers left to head for Oslo. [...]

Keep in mind: the big teams ride in groups and do not like others to take advantage of the group. I learned quickly, as one of a group rider pushed me out of road. My warning 'if you do it again...', was not heard. He repeated: 'if you quarrel, we are forty, if like to can discuss it with all our tour guys...'. No way! Stay out of teams!

Tour de Brittany 2010
by Hugh Morgan, tour started August 2010, submitted 7 September 2010
Europe: France

This describes our nine day family tour around Western Brittany starting in Gouarec on the Brest-Nantes canal. We did about 30 miles day carrying our own luggage and staying in small hotels and bed and breakfasts. My wife and youngest daughter were on a borrowed tandem and my older daughter and I were on our own bikes which we brought from home on the roof rack. We had various people tell us that Brittany was flat or hilly and we didn't really know what to expect but take it from me it was hilly. Overall we had a great time.

Corsica from 08. until 23 Mai 2010
by José Rössner, tour started May 2010, submitted 7 September 2010
Europe: France
language: en, de, nl

I spend this year my spring break in Corsica. An ideal country to test my new Cannondale bike with electric components from Bionx. (Motor, battery and display). A mountainous island, big enough to cycle around a fortnight. By train, I'll go from Zurich to Livorno. A ferry of ``corsica ferries'' will take me to Bastia. Here I begin to circle counter clockwise around Corsica. First I'm going up to Cap Corse, then via Saint Florent, Calvi, Porto, Ajaccio and Sarténe to Bonifatio, the very south of the island. Northbound I'll spend a few days in the inland mountains.

Europe: Holland
language: en, de, nl

From 05th. to 20th. July 2010 we cycled through the Netherlands.

We had exceptionally good weather. (25 ºC to 39 ºC) On day 8 a violent thunderstorm, which doesn't occur every year, forced us to search for a shelter half an hour. Even fire brigade, Police and ambulance were mobilized. Trees were uprooted and in the neighbouring village, caravans were literally whirled through the air and landed in a pond.

Two New Zealanders heading East across the landmasses of Europe and Asia
by Emma and Justin, tour started March 2010, submitted 5 September 2010

We're Emma and Justin, two New Zealanders who have 'gone cycling' after six years working and living in London.

We talked about the possibility of a big trip quietly at first. We were on a train in England somewhere and we sketched a rudimentary map which plotted our way towards Russia. Our cycling trips became more ambitious, and we tested our enthusiasm for the idea by cycling the length of the UK (Lands End to John O'Groats) over three weeks in 2009. After 6 years living away from New Zealand we decided it was time to pack up London lives, quit jobs and go.

We have been on the road since March 2010 and intend to reach the edge of Asia by March 2012. Our website documents some of the places we've discovered on our travels.

Lana 2010 Tour

Lana has become our standard fall tour. This time, we have convinced some guys from our bicycle gang to follow us... Climbing the Mendel pass (Menapaces training pass...) as well as the passo Pallade (with a rather long downhill to Lana = 18 kilometers). And a car free day at Stelvio rounded our efforts... Enjoy the picture! Good luck to all the followers!

By bike through north-eastern Europe
by Juuk Slager, tour started May 2009, submitted 18 August 2010

I made a trip by bicycle, starting in Gdansk (Poland), and then through Kaliningrad (Russia), Lithuania, Belarus, Latvia, many days in Estonia, Russia (with a stay of 2 weeks in St-Petersburg). My bike needed some maintenance and repair, and I needed to learn some more Russian.

From there I cycled along the coast to Vyborg (still Russia) and took a ferry to Finland. From east to west through Finland, and as a final the really nice Aland-islands. By ferry to Stockholm, a few days in Stockholm. By train from Stockholm to Goteborg, and then the last part by bike from Goteborg to Kopenhagen. By train back to the Netherlands.

Many experiences in altogether 103 days of cycling. Main accommodation in hotels, guesthouses, B&B's and at many people's homes (thanks to Hospitality Club). A lot of practical information for people who think about cycling in these countries. I can really recommend you to cycle there.

Croation Bicycle Tour 2005

Europe: Croatia

Trying out opportunities in Europe, we decided to visit a friend, who lives in Crikvenica, a small town on the North shore of the Adria in the Velebit channel. The Velebit channel is known for heavy Bora winds. We have been lucky, not experiencing any disturbance by bad weather conditions. As we went down by train, we started the tour at Pivka (SLO), some kilometres before the boarder to Croatia. Rolling roads leaded us to Rijeka and further to Crikvenica. The distance Rijeka - Crikvenica was a nightmare: extreme heavy traffic with careless car drivers! A miracle, we survived... The next days we spent on the Island Krk. Crossing the Tito Most (the bridge over the Velebit channel) opened extreme scenic views to the seaside. The city of Krk had a lot of opportunities to relax. Our way back home leads us back to Rijeka, where we have taken the train back to Austria.

This Tour is not so far from our home... The city of Gmünd may get reached in a day ride (round 200 kilometres). We pedalled via the city Krems on Danube, the Krems river Valley North to the city of Zwettl. At Zwettl a wide range of gastronomic offers awaited us. Travelling further to the city Weitra another highlight has been hit: a local brewery.

At Gmünd, just before the Czech boarder we found a hotel. The very next day, we have been riding South to the river Danube. It has been so hot, as our bike tire has been gluing to the melted asphalt... Nearby the Danube, at Waldhausen we found a natural public bath. Right in the in the dam area of the local river. Refreshed we continued. Passing the well known Wachau. Night at a little hotel at Spitz on Danube. Riding home was easy from now on... Enjoy the pictures! Good luck to all the followers!

Mountainbike Katmandu
by Iris Mueck, tour started September 2000, submitted 12 August 2010
Europe: Nepal

I did a lot of travels on occasion of my professional career... Covering 'Asia' as a sales manager. Often I have taken my mountain bike with me. Left it at the luggage counter at Singapore's Changi airport. This time, I went to Kathmandu.

Friendly people. Sometimes hard to understand (Indian accent). Wherever you go, they like to sell you something (...and never give up, even if you say 'no'... A rather cheap place, except the 'entrance fee' to Nepal... The hotel has organized an accompanying taxi. Use of a tour guide or an accompanying taxi is no shame.

Foreigners have to give the locals a job. That' s what it is for the last 100 years and longer. My daughter made the Annapurna round, a walkway for tourists. And one (paid) guy kept her rucksack all the way... That's the way it is! Enjoy the pictures! Good luck to all the followers!

A roundtrip by bicycle in the center of the Alps
by Iris Mueck, tour started August 2003, submitted 12 August 2010

I have met a friend on the occasion of the Norwegian 'Styrkeproven'. My longest tour, I ever did. The Styrkeproven starts at Trondheim and finishes after 540 kilometres in Oslo. I made it in 21 hours... My Norwegian friend decided to join me on a planned tour throughout the Alps.

We started at Landeck (Austria). So, the first summit has been the Arlberg Pass. Then we have been riding up the Rhein Valley in Switzerland. Night we spent at the city of Chur.

The very next day, we did two summits: Lenzerheide and Julier Pass. I remember, when I did the Julier Pass in my youth: people in the valley avoided to talk to foreigners. Of course they speak the Roman language (some of the 'ladinisch' - which is more or less the same, but with a touch of Italian (latin) influence... We ended in an expensive area. St. Moritz. [...] We left Livigno over the two Eira Passes ending at Bormio. It has been late, but there was still a little power in us: we made the Stelvio Pass from the South. Very demanding attempt! As it was late, we spent the night at the Franzenshöhe Hostel. Further down we hit Mals and later the Rescia Pass. As we ended at Landeck again and my Norwegian friend had time enough, we decided to continue by bicycle. We have been riding all the way the 'Inntalradweg' to Passau and further to Vienna, where the tour ended. Good luck to all the followers!

Crossing the Alps by Mountainbike
by Iris Mueck, tour started July 2000, submitted 12 August 2010

This has been my first attempt of crossing the Alps by mountainbike. I joined an experienced group. They started at Lech/Arlberg. On the first day, we climbed the Kristbergsattel, having night at Silbertal (Montafon). The very next day, we climbed up to Gargellen and then the 'bike-push' part over the Schlappiner Joch. Now, we are in Switzerland. Night, somewhere in the Engadin Valley. [...]

On top of the Tremalzo Pass you find a tunnel, which you have to pass. There is a bus shuttle service for bikers accommodated in Riva, just interested on the downhill. It is one of the most famous downhill roads in Europe. You find down hillers, never seen before... But you see, from time to time bike accidents... A wonderful scenic view to the Lago die Garda paid for the effort of climb. Our tour ended in Riva. This people are prepared for bikers. You can find every spare part you need. Hotels and restaurants are prepared for bicyclists. We left Riva, after a rest day, by a shuttle bus, back to Austria. Good luck to all the followers!

I remember Oldenburg and surroundings.

After crossing the river Weser we made a stop at Worpswede, a city dedicated to Artists. Riding back to Hamburg we crossed over via 'Das Alte Land' - a huge garden. Full of all kind of fruits. Last stop at Harburg, directly at the river Elbe. Crossing the river Elbe by ferry, landing at Blankenese, Hamburgs high society quarter. Good luck to all the followers!

The 1913 opened for the first five individual stages range is now 600 km from Department of Streets and along 68 km of national roads. Several cuts are stages of the Tour de France. Passing Martigny, and climbing the Forclaz Pass, heading for Charmonix. On the foot of the Aquille du Midi we have seen the huge glacier which winds down near Charmonix. Impressive: the climb up on the Roselend road.

Sicily Tour 2003

Europe: Italy

After the good experience on the Amalfi coast, we tried further South: Sicily. For a round trip to large... Anyway, we climbed up the Etna road (elevation round 2.000 meters). We had a rest day at the city of Belpaso. This people understand to live! I remember an excellent Grappa, we have been offered...!

Leaving Belpaso, we followed the costal road to Messina. Crossing the sea street by ferry. We went up the Aspromonte mountain range. Interesting experience. We continued in going back by ferry to Island Sicily and followed the North costal road. Wonderful climbs, untouched nature. Interesting little villages; often found on top of a mountain. Going back 'home' (to the airport Cantania), has been a very powerful ride, because of the high numer of hills... Good luck to all the followers.
