|Originally round-the-world but now much more interesting
tour started June 2007, submitted 22 January 2010
Europe, Africa, Asia: England, Holland, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Iran, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Yemen, Oman, UnitedArabEmirates
This is my travel blog of several years on the road. It started life as a round-the-world trip, but before long I realised that A-to-B cycling isn't as interesting as getting off the beaten track and really exploring a place. So since I left home I've had as much time off the bike as on it, earnt more than I've spent, learnt a new language, met an amazing girl and got married to her! Eager to travel by bike as a couple, we're currently seeing where this new dimension takes us.
I prefer to write about the way the trip affects me psychologically and about the cultural, political and historical curiousities I encounter. It's an uncomfortably personal story at times, but I think it's more interesting than reading pages of distance measurements, road conditions and visa hassles.
My creative outlet comes through photography and video which I also share on the site - I carry 6kg of camera equipment and don't regret it for a second!
|Pays-Bas Bicyclette 2009

D'abord ce fut une vague idée,
Voici les photos et une vidéo de ce joli voyage.
|To France the Long Way - via Berlin, Grongingen (NL), Bruges (B)...
tour started June 2009, submitted 16 January 2010
The shortest way to France from Munich would be about 300 kilometers. We reached the French border after pedaling 2,300 kilometers. On a round-about route we cycled north to Berlin, west to Hamburg and Groningen in the Netherlands and south as far as Rouen in France. By then we had had enough headwinds and rain. Our Bike Fridays, folding bikes, made it possible to continue by train to southern France and finally back to Munich two months later.
|Dunkerque to Aachen - crossing Belgium and Holland en route to Germany
tour started March 2008, submitted 23 December 2009
February is always grim in England and I always dream that March will be better. The days are longer, the bulbs have come through and spring days are on their way. So we decided that March was the perfect time for the first tour of the year - in 9 days we'd cycle from Dunkerque to Germany, north through Belgium and across Holland via the polders.
This is what happened....
|ciclabile del fiume Ems da Emden a Paderborn
tour started July 2009, submitted 22 December 2009
A Emden il mare non c'è. Sembra mare l'ampio fiume Ems. Le innumerevoli imbarcazioni in movimento e in sosta tra i canali ne fanno un porto di mare. C'è l'odore che viene da ovest con il vento. A pochi chilometri, il mare del Nord, profuma di maree basse laddove le isole Frisone contendono il territorio al mare. Un mare grigio, tipico del nord, che gli amanti degli spazi senza fine gradiscono particolarmente. Dopo aver attraversato campi, canali, fattorie, questi turisti portano, per sempre, con sè l'emozione di aver visto la fine della terra. Molte di queste emozioni sono possibili solo viaggiando in bicicletta.
Quello che leggerete sono incontri e sensazioni di viaggio.
|Europe on two wheels - From Holland to Sicily and back
tour started July 2009, submitted 12 December 2009
language: en, nl
For the tenth year in a row I am doing a medium to large cycling trip. This time I will be staying in Europe. The idea is to cycle through Germany and Austria to southern Italy and Sicily and to cycle back home over Sardinia, Corsica, France and Belgium. An overall estimate shows me that it will be around six thousand to seven thousand kilometers to fully realise the plan.
|Ciclabile del fiume Weser-I^ parte
tour started July 2009, submitted 4 December 2009
Sole, splendimi fin dentro al cuore, Vento, caccia via pensieri e pene, Non v’è al mondo diletto maggiore Che andar vagando sconfinatamente.” (H. Hesse)
In Germania è pura convenzione attribuire l’inizio e la fine di una ciclabile. Esse esistono dappertutto, nascono, non muoiono, prendono nomi diversi secondo il territorio attraversato. Quando non hanno un nome segnalano una località. Ricoprono il territorio come una rete, adeguate sempre alla circolazione della bicicletta, mezzo di trasporto, preso in considerazione tanto quanto gli altri mezzi.
|Ciclabile del fiume Weser-II^ parte
tour started July 2009, submitted 4 December 2009
Da Rinteln a Nienburg 110 km.
Il piccolo centro storico della cittadina di Rintel non si dimentica. Le luci ancora alte del tardo pomeriggio accendono la Kirchplatz, la torre di St. Nikolai, le case policrome delle vie laterali, i giardini e il canale. Ma la città ha qualcosa che altre non hanno e che fa “intenerire il core”: il tramonto. Il sole estivo scende tardi e proprio in mezzo al fiume, che in questo tratto scorre da est a ovest, e raccoglie lungo la sua riva, teneri amanti, famiglie a passeggio, escursionisti attardati e cicloturisti stranieri intenti a scrivere messaggi col telefonino in quest’ora “che volge al desio”.
|To the North Cape
tour started May 2009, submitted 2 December 2009
language: en, nl
There was a moment when an idea popped up in my head: I should go to the North Cape. Or actually, I acquired the strong inner conviction that I had to go to the North Cape. I could hardly think of something else.
So in spring of 2009 I left my house in Holland, followed the coasts of North sea, Wadden sea and Norwegian sea until that magical northernmost point.
4625 km through amazing landscapes with extreme variation: from the flat countries where it is sometimes hard to tell where land ends and sea begins, to the fjords where granite rises vertically out of the water.
|Wo war die Grenze?
tour started June 2009, submitted 22 November 2009
Twenty years after the wall has come down, a few cyclists took part in the Grenzsteintrophy (aka Boundary Stone Trophy) and I've been one of them.

|Cycling Gypsies: A Bicycle Odyssey with Dogs
tour started July 2008, submitted 14 November 2009
Europe: Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, France, Spain, Portugal, Monaco, Italy, SanMarino, Austria, Slovenia, Hungary, Slovakia, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Estonia, Latvia
We don't just have our house on our bikes, we also have our two dogs, Jack and Paco, along for the ride. That's 60kg of furry luggage and another 50-60kg of non-furry luggage between the two of us! Needless to say we don't go fast but we do go everywhere, refusing to let our extra load stop us from tackling hills with grades of up to 18%. We have been on the road with our two dogs since July 2008. So far we have covered 17,000 kms and 18 countries in continental Europe.
|2003 Tandem Tour of the Alps

A tandem tour of the Alps, starting from Munich, then riding through Austria, Switzerland, and Italy.
|Ciclabile fiume Elba (Elberadweg) seconda Parte
tour started July 2006, submitted 30 October 2009
A Magdeburg il ponte che attraversa Elba e Alte Elbe dà inizio alla seconda parte della ciclabile denominata Elberadweg che porta da Praga fino a Cuxhaven.
Inizia con un percorso bellissimo nel verde della sponda destra fino ad Alt Lostau, paesino che merita una sosta con adeguata, se pur breve, visita. Pochi tratti di fiume ancora e l'attenzione cade successivamente sull'imponente realizzazione del Elbe-Havel-Kanal, prima visibile da sotto, quasi una autostrada che attraversa il fiume, poi che accompagna per 3 chilometri.
|Ciclabile del Fiume Elba (Elberadweg) prima parte da Praga
tour started July 2006, submitted 30 October 2009
La Elberadweg inizia con la scoperta del fiume Moldau (Vltava) che attraversando Praga fa di essa una delle più belle capitali Europee.
Seguendo la corrente del fiume, dopo il centro storico, si attraversa il Cechuv Most e il percorso ciclabile inizia proprio all'interno di un vasto parco. Nella breve salita si dà l'addio alla città osservandone ancora una volta l'architettura classica e moderna.
|Cycling around Germany with a E-bike and a normal one 2009
tour started June 2009, submitted 13 October 2009
Rika (my sister) bought an e-bike, so we want to test it. I hope that after 4000 kilometres ride, I will get to know the pros and cons of electrically assisted bicycles. In the morning we cycle to Waldshut, our starting point for our trip around Germany.
I take a photo of the bridge over the Rhine in Waldshut and hope to be back here in 6-7 beautiful and exciting weeks. From Waldshut to Schluchsee we have to climb approximately 600 meters. As long as the ground is flat, I can keep up with the e-bike but if it gets steep, I cannot keep the pace. We decide that both of us cycle our own speed. If Rika arrives at the top of a hill, she will have to wait until I reach the top of the mountain. Until now it was vice versa.

|Cycle tour on the Rhine, Mosel and Eifel in Germany
tour started July 2009, submitted 2 September 2009
I'd never seen so many cycle tourists before in one place. It was like the Ortlieb Panniers Owners' Club annual get together. Every colour of pannier on display, plus canoe bags, bar bags and whatever else you can buy from your local bike shop in waterproof PVC. We took our place in amongst the masses and headed off down the Rhine. The cycle lane was immaculate and wide and the countryside very easy on the eye. We'd arrived in Germany on Day 1 of a 7 day cycle tour of the Rhine, Mosel and Eifel and were already feeling very much a part of the scenery.....
|Nord-ostsee Kanal Route
tour started July 2007, submitted 16 June 2009
Viene qui descritto il tratto che va da Hochbrucke fino a Brunsbuttel. Una sessantina di chilometri lungo il canale, quasi una crociera, e una ottantina di chilometri risultanti da una escursione allâ'interno. Nato dopo quello di Suez, lo solcano più di 40.000 imbarcazioni ogni anno e presenta grandi opere a corredo, ponti e porti, strutture possenti realizzate per renderlo attivo.
|An Easter Tour in Franconia, Germany
tour started April 2009, submitted 30 May 2009
Our first tour of the season takes us to Franconia. Franconia? Sounds like a place from a Marx Brothers film. Remember ``Duck Soup'' and the land of Freedonia? On the German map it's called Franken and is a wonderful place to cycle in the pre-Easter season, if the weather is right. And it was. The countryside was just turning green and the villages were decorated with beautifully crafted, traditional Easter wreaths. We cycled from Nuremberg to Heidelberg and then followed the Altmühl Bike Path to Kelheim.

|Nordseekusten Radweg - Ciclabile Costa Mare del Nord
tour started July 2007, submitted 1 April 2009
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
tour started 2006, submitted 28 March 2009
Europe, Africa, America: Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Italy, France, Monaco, Spain, Andorra, Portugal, UK, Morocco, Belgium, Canada
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.
tour started July 2007, submitted 2 March 2009
Il percorso che porta questo nome e che ripercorre lo spostamento dei popoli nordici e nomadi con le loro mandrie da nord a sud, inizia subito dopo Wedel, una cittadina fuori Amburgo. Una trentina di chilometri per fare i quali non c'è via migliore che la costa...

tour started August 2008, submitted 2 February 2009
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.
|Austrian Danube Bike Trail
tour started May 2008, submitted 13 January 2009
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.
|ciclabile costa del mare baltico (da Wanermunde a Usedom)
tour started July 2008, submitted 5 January 2009
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.

|Ciclabile Berlino-Copenaghen (fino Warnemunde)
tour started July 2008, submitted 16 December 2008
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.

This is the website and travelogue of The Project VELAIA. 22 year old velosopher, environmentalist and often minimalistic outdoor adventurer Daniel N. Lang has decided to go around the world by recumbent and upright bicycle after finishing an epic journey of more than 17.000km from Paris to Beijing as a rider of the Beijing to Paris 2007 Carfree Rallye, following coastlines for hundreds of kilometers, crossing deserts during mid summer in the Middle East, Central Asia and China and climbing some of the highest passes of the world under extreme conditions in the starting Tibetan winter.
After Eurasia he cycled Australia, New Zealand and the United States and is now on a tour through the South American Andes, starting in Caracas, Venezuela and cycling his way down to Chile at the time of writing this (beginning of September 2008).

|Munich to Paris - Door to Door
tour started June 2008, submitted 25 July 2008
This was our first tour of the season and we have new bikes. In the Internet we saw a site describing a new bike route connecting Prag and Paris and decided to follow the French section. After cycling from here to the Rhine, we rode through Alsace-Lorraine, the Champagne Region and enter Paris along the Canal de l'Ourcq. We followed river valleys and canals, but still were in for a lot of climbs before we reached our goal.

|Germany -- bicycle tours of two piciclisti who only have bikes in their mind.
tour started September 2007, submitted 9 July 2008
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.
|Giro del lago di Costanza (Bodensee tour)
tour started July 2006, submitted 26 May 2008
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.
