A 14.492 km bikeride around Australia in 69 dayes
by Erik Straarup, tour started 2006, submitted 5 February 2010
language: en, dk

Since my last attempt in 2002, it had annoyed me I didnt complete, and as time passed, I realized I had to try again, to regain at least some self-respekt. In the meentime Swiss/Australian Eugen Schilter had set a incredible new record of only 55 days and 17 hours. A time I had no intentions on beating, my only goal was to complete a full Around Australia biketrip.

I set a timetable of 74 days, or pretty much an average of 200 km a day. This would beat the Danish record of 80 days, if completed. I made an agrement with the Australian Red Cross to promote Blood Donation, in return I was allowed to wear their logo on my back, hoping for some goodwill and a safer ride in the traffic.

This time I brought camping gear with me, it would be cheaper acommodation and I would not have to rely on roadhouses as much as last time. I had a trailer too, and it meant lots of space for food and water on the long parts. Afterall, I wasent going for the world record, so a few extra kg didnt matter.

I choose a route going more north this time, up to Innisfall, then west to Normanton and south to Cloncurry. This would ad nearly 500 km ekstra to the trip compared to 2002.

Originally round-the-world but now much more interesting
by Tom Allen, tour started June 2007, submitted 22 January 2010

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!

Sleeping under the Saharan stars
Tour of Gondwana
by Michael Ayers, tour started May 2005, submitted 20 January 2010

My goal for this Tour was to visit all of the major inhabited parts of the former supercontinent of Gondwana. Today, those places are mostly located in the Southern Hemisphere. Another aspect of my plan was to avoid long airplane trips by crossing oceans on container ships. That part of my Tour frequently caused problems, but I did hold fast to that idea, more or less. I traveled alone during 40 months and covered a little over 86,000 km by bike in 44 countries. My primary interest was the simple joy of cycling in new places, but I also concentrated on Natural History, Flora and Fauna, Ancient Sites and Diverse Cultures. My site contains sections describing Tour preparations, detailed logs, photos, posts written during the Tour, and a collection of essays written once it was complete.

Bicycletour in Tenerife and La Palma, the steepest island of the world
by Györgyi Gábor, tour started April 2009, submitted 19 January 2010

I bicycled 2 weeks in Tenerife and La Palma, the steepest island of the world. Both have mild weather so they are said to be the islands of the forever spring. The clouds fly under the height of 1500m, so above it the Sun always shines and we can see the clouds lower.

In Tenerife I visited the wild Teno mountains with the beautiful Masca, later I ascended up to the 2100m Teide plateau where one can feel as in Arizona. In La Orotava I enjoyed the Loro Park animal park with orca, penguine and dolphine shows, then I cycled through laurelsilva forest next to La Esperanza.

The islands have subtropical climate and subtropical plants, besides I saw a lot of cactusses and sometimes papaya and orange trees. In La Palma I ascended the Roque de los Muchachos (2426 m) from both sides. As I looked around from the ridge of the Caldera crater I could hardly say a word: outside I saw te clouds from above to the infinity, while inside clouds in the half-rounded crater shined by evening sunlights. I had a round the tour in the island and visited volcanos and tropical forest. Wonderful islands!

In summer 2009 I travelled with a friend along the northern coast of Black Sea from peninsula Crimea into the mountains of Greater Caucasus. On Russian side we crossed the major mountain range close to the border of Georgia and arrived finally Elbrus, the highest mountain of Europe. Muddy tracks and steep relief marked the second part of this 1600 km bike trip.

East Siberia Odyssey to the Pole of Cold Oymyakon

This three months trip by train, ship, minibus and bike was a really low budget adventure through whole Russia. Many decisions how and where I travelled depends on marginal money and time but also on locals help. By bike I passed in two month the Eastern part of Siberia (district Irkutsk, Buryatia and Yakutia): at first along the Baikal-Amur-Magistral from Ust-Kut to Bodaybo, than by ships on Vitim river to Lensk and from here again by bike (and minibus) to Yakutsk and finally Oymyakon, the northern ``Pole of Cold'', where -71,2°C were recorded in 1926.

With a locally bought Bike through Mongolia and Altay
by Richard Löwenherz, tour started August 2006, submitted 18 January 2010
language: de

In summer 2006 my university arranged a geographic field work and excursion in the central part of Mongolia (lake Ugij nuur and Changay mountains) which I extended with a six week bike trip. Because I didn't know how to transport my own bike there, I bought one in Ulaanbaatar on the local ``Black Market''. I passed Mongolia on the northernmost road connection from Ulaanbaatar to Ulaangom, crossed the Altay mountains to Siberia and finished in Bijsk, the first railway station. My 68 Euro bike survived this 2300 km trip but I had daily technical problems and more than one situation where I was dependent on locals help...

The tour report is written in German, but a collection of photographs (``Bilder''), the mapped route (``Karte'') and informations about the route, day-km and travel costs (``Streckenprotokoll'') are mostly self-explanatory.

To France the Long Way - via Berlin, Grongingen (NL), Bruges (B)...
by Suzanne Gibson, 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.

6000km Through the Heart of the Amazon Jungle
by Douglas Gunzelmann, tour started September 2009, submitted 5 January 2010

Inspired by an article in National Geographic, Gunzelmann hoped his personal adventure and real-time blogs would help bring awareness to the rainforest destruction occurring along the unfinished "TransAmazonica" highway he traveled. Though not entirely paved, the highway already connects Brazil and Peru from coast to coast. In a journey filled with vivid stories of swarming ants, scorching heat, violent political riots, poachers, a river crossing in the bucket of a bulldozer, and a daring escape from a cougar on top of a speeding fuel truck, Gunzelmann would have never guessed what would be the most dangerous thing of all he would encounter—that the very people he blamed for the destruction of the Amazon were often also the people who would also help him the most.

Uphill cycle tour through France
by Simon Mitchell, tour started May 2009, submitted 2 January 2010

Foreword :Day 8

This morning I was Lance Armstrong leading the peleton on the road through France to Rodez! No it's OK, I wasn't suffering from heat stroke. I just saw the tell tale still partly decipherable graffiti road markings that told me that my man "Lance Armstrong" & 200 other athletes had cycled this very road. I put my head down & stepped up the cadence racing to my imaginary finish line. Out of breath, but exceedingly happy & content I hoisted my arms & shouted at the top of my voice "KING OF THE WORLD" beating my chest like a gorilla. Not quite the British coolness & understatement I know, but this was my tour, I was a winner & feeling good at what I was doing!

Grab a coffee and pull up an armchair. Travel with me for the next 30 minutes through one of the most scenic Countries in the World. France!

Dunkerque to Aachen - crossing Belgium and Holland en route to Germany
by Chris, 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
by Fernando Da Re, tour started July 2009, submitted 22 December 2009
language: it

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
by Erik Nomden, 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.

Iceland Bike Tour with Transit of Central Highlands

In august and september 2003 I cycled with three friends six weeks through the western and central part of Iceland. The most adventurously section of our route was the transit of central highlands two weeks without shops. On ``Geasavatnaleidh'' close to the northern border of glacier Vatnajökull we reached a height of 1200 m. The weather was predominantly fine: we had many clear nights with great northern lights!

Winter Trip on Iceroads in West Siberia
by Richard Löwenherz, tour started March 2008, submitted 6 December 2009
language: de

On Russian iceroads, the so-called ``zimniks'', I cycled in march 2008 three weeks along the frozen Ob-river. The trip started in Priobe (Chanty-Mansijskij district) and ended in the mountains of Polar Ural near Salekhard above the arctic circle (Jamalo-Neneckij district). At the beginning I had no knowledge about the exactly road course, because it isn't shown on maps. I also had no special winter clothes, but no really critical situations in coldness (-37°C minimum). This bike trip was an great adventure with breathtaking impressions of Siberian winter and some meetings with the Chanty, the natives of northern Ob-region.

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.

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
by Walter Hoogerbeets, 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.

Where the Heck is Sulawesi?
by Jerry Griswold, tour started March 2009, submitted 28 November 2009

I've cycled in Indonesia numerous times on the islands of Raiu, Java, Bali, and Lombok. I love Bali and have been there a half dozen times. Bali is a small island so cycling is somewhat limited, but I still find myself going back again and again. I stumbled upon a magazine article about an Australian who did a bicycle tour on Sulawesi, and that peeked my interest. I did some research and decided to travel there and take a look. Sulawesi is considered an exotic destination and therefore attracts a number of foreign tourists.

The climate is warm there, much warmer than the usual winter temperatures in Northern California. The winter of '08/'09 through January anyway, has been very dry and not near as cold as past winters. My bike ride in Sulawesi will take 23 days, a couple of which I will spend in wonderful Bali before flying on to that island. I invite you to come along with me as I visit the sights to be seen in Sulawesi.

Southeast Asia Beckons Once Again
by Jerry Griswold, tour started 2009, submitted 28 November 2009

Summer has almost arrived here in California. The weather in May is nice and I should be happy to be comfortable at home and to cyle around the area where I live, but I get restless and bored with the same scenery and that is my problem. I haven't been on a multi-day bike tour since I cycled in Sulawesi, Indonesia, in March and I've had no additional tour plans until July, when I've penciled out a ride in Europe. What to do during the three month intern is the question. I love cycling and especially riding in my favorite county, Thailand, so why not return for one more ride. I've never cycled there in May though, and with good reason, as it rains a lot. The 'wet season' extends from April thru early November. The weather in May and June, when I will be there will be hot, 90 to 100+ degrees, and wet. I just hope it doesn't rain all day every day. My experience cycling there at other times of the year is that it rains mostly in the afternoons and at night. If that is the case, I will have done the day's ride and be settled in a nice hotel room by late afternoon and the rains would not be so much of a bother. That is my hope.

A Bicycle Trip to Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island July 2003
by Susanne and Ole Jacobi, tour started 2003, submitted 25 November 2009

For the last many summers, we have visited the islands of the Eastern Atlantic seabord: Lofoten in Norway, the Outer Hebrides, Orkney and Shetland in Scotland, Ireland, Wales which is not an island, but might as well be one, and Gotland in Sweden which is an island, but in the Baltic, not in the Atlantic. The time had now come, we thought, to cross the Atlantic and see what it looks like on the other side. As islands seem to be our preferred locations, we chose Prince Edward Island (PEI in the local vocabulary) in Canada which has the advantage of being fairly small and not too hilly.

En la mayor parte de este viaje seguimos el trazado de la ruta ''Eurovelo 6``, que aunque con tramos todavia en proyecto, es una via ciclista que une la desembocadura del Loira en el Atlantico con el delta del Danubio en el Mar Negro recorriendo toda Europa de Oeste a Este.

Pero como las vacaciones no son eternas, este año nos tuvimos que conformar con el tramo que cruza Francia. Empezamos en Nantes remontando el Loira hasta Digoin, luego por el Canal du Centre y el Saone, y despues por el canal del Rin y el Doubs hasta llegar a la frontera con Alemania. Alli abandonamos el trazado de la EuroVelo-6 para girar al Norte y siguiendo la cuenca del Rin visitar Colmar y Estrasburgo. En total fueron 1250 km de pedaleo con algun corto trayecto en tren que nos llevaron 16 dias, 13 de ellos viajando en bicicleta.

Nach der Ankunft und einer ausgedehnten Stadtbesichtigung in Catania radelten war nach Süden um anschließend in das 1000 m hoch gelegene Gebirge bei Ferla in Richtung Westen. Nach einer Erkundung des Valle del Anapo führten kleinere Straßen durch urtümliche Dörfern nach Norden. Den Ätna in Sicht erwischte uns ein Regenschauer. Es sollte nicht der letzte bleiben, denn wir hatten auf dieser Tour leider etwas Pech mit dem Wetter gehabt. Auf 1200 m Höhe waren wir über der Wolkenschicht uns zelteten am Südhang des Vulkans. Mit -8°C Außentemperatur wurde es in der anschließenden Nacht recht frisch. Am nächsten Tag fuhren wir bis zur Seilstation auf 1900 m Höhe und wanderten den Rest bis auf eine Höhe von 3000m. Nebel und der nahende Sonnenuntergang zwangen uns zur Umkehr. Auf einer Eigenkonstruktion aus Plastikflaschen rutschten wir den vereisten Hang ins Tal und zelten erneut im Gebirge (- 2°C im Zelt). Das Bergmassiv fast einmal umrundet arbeiteten wir uns über den Portella Femmina Morta Miraglia - mit 1524 m der höchste Pass der Insel. Wir sehnten uns nach dem Meer, denn während der Abfahrt war zäher Nebel und nur drei Grad. An der Nordküste erlebten wir sonnige Etappen und abschließend entspannende Tage in der quirligen Hauptstadt Palermo.

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.
