  2. Jake Marsden reviewed Vienna to Prague Cycling Greenways in Vienna, Austria

    European cycle paths are improving so quickly that there are so many possible trips you can do and because these are regions built before long distance travel became big there are plenty of towns and cities along the routes so you don’t have to for…"

  3. Jake Marsden reviewed Cycling Bavaria and the Tyrol in Bavaria, Germany

    A cycling journey from Innsbruck to Munich via Bad Tolz takes you through two similarly impressive alpine region countryside, the Tyrol and Bavaria. The scenery is straight out of ‘The Sound of Music’ with blue and white mountain ranges in t…"

  5. Jake Marsden rated Vienna to Prague Cycling Greenways

  6. Jake Marsden reviewed Cycle the C2C in Lake District, United Kingdom

    This needs to be included as one of the most popular cycling trips in the UK: the website says they have between 12,000 and 15,000 cyclists on it each year. So it’s busy and very organised and well maintained which could be a good thing or a bad thing …"

  8. Jake Marsden rated Cycling the Rhone Valley Trail

  9. Jake Marsden reviewed Cycling the Rhone Valley Trail in Switzerland

    The Rhone Valley is, without being too twee, charming: it’s mix of rural, wine lands and alpine scenery and the pretty chalet towns, castles and cosmopolitan resorts around Lake Geneva make it a varied ride (or possibly a walk). If you start in th…"

  10. Jake Marsden reviewed Cycling the Lycian Way and the Tekke Peninsular in Aegean Region, Turkey

    The spectacular scenery of the Lycian Way along Turkey’s Tekke Peninsular makes an excellent riding backdrop. The way is really a trekking route, but some portions of the track are suitable to bike along, alternatively the region itself has some o…"

  13. Jake Marsden reviewed Cycling Chile's Lake District in Puerto Montt, Chile

    This region is another cyclists dream, plenty of spectacular scenery, including mountains, volcanoes and the many bright blue lakes which give the region it’s name. There are too many options here, with plenty of suitable routes and trails and it really…"

  14. Jake Marsden rated Camino de Norte on a bike

  15. Jake Marsden reviewed Camino de Norte on a bike in Ourense, Spain

    This was once an important pilgrims route for Christians when the Camino Frances was made too dangerous. It winds along the Asturian coast and Galicia and was originally an old Roman road called the Via Agrippa. This is a more challenging trip with mul…"

  16. Jake Marsden reviewed Cycle through Tuscany in Siena, Italy

    Tuscany is best done on a bike. Built when it was more difficult to travel over great distances, the towns and villas here are close together and off the tourists routes, as your bike will allow you to go you’ll enjoy more of the traditions of the…"

    As classic cycling tours go this is one of the most popular: we’ve all seen it on our tv screens at home while watching the Tour de France and people from all over the world want to emulate this, one of the most gruelling stages. Realistically yo…"

    This flat pretty region of France is a cyclists dream, there is smooth scenic touring between towns or you can base yourself in in one of several villages and do day trips to some of the impressive local chateaux and other sights. One of the nicest thin…"

  22. Jake Marsden rated Banff and Lake Minnewanka Cycling Trails

  23. Jake Marsden reviewed Banff and Lake Minnewanka Cycling Trails in Alberta, Canada

    "This is one of the best tracks in Banff. The views are spectacular and the ride is challenging crossing sections of scree and climbing several steep slopes. Bear in mind that you have to come back along the same route so don’t wear yourself out too muc…"

  24. Jake Marsden reviewed Cycling the Danube from Passau to Budapest in Passau, Germany

    "This is one of the most popular and well managed cycle routes though Europe, it travels, along both banks of the Danube between Passau, near the Austrian border and Vienna. Most people plan to complete it in 6 days at about 65 to 70 k a day, but this wi…"
