Excellent lengthy-distance cycle routes in Europe: readers’ suggestions




Whether it’s a few days pootling along the Normandy coast or an epic 1,800km ride from Canterbury to Rome, our readers’ continental motorbike journeys will encourage youWinning tip: Passau, Germany, to Vienna
For a one-week first cycle excursion, I’d propose flying to Linz then catching the train over the German border to Passau, a lovely town where the rivers Inn, Danube and Ils meet. Rent motorcycles from Matthias Drasch at Fahrrad-Klinik and pedal off along traffic-free paths beside the Danube. Esterbauer publishes a guide in English for this conventional course: maps are splendid, with lodging listings and places of hobby along the manner, like Melk and the Austrian vine and fruit developing regions. Fahrrad-Klinik has an arrangement with a lodge on outskirts of Vienna wherein you go away the motorcycles. Spend an afternoon or so in Vienna before catching the train lower back to Linz and flying domestic.

Via Francigena: the pilgrim route from Canterbury to Rome
In AD990 Archbishop Sigeric walked the 1,800km from Canterbury to Rome to accumulate his pallium (his “stole” of workplace) from the pope. On the return adventure he helpfully recorded his in a single day stops – all eighty of them – which form the basis of today’s Via Francigena. Much much less famous than different pilgrimages, like the Camino de Santiago, this route continues to be taken by way of greater than 1,000 human beings every yr. Cycling it over 20 days is perfectly possible – I did it in June this year – but be conscious it includes crossing the Alps (the two,469-metre Saint Bernard Pass) and the Apennines (the Passo della Cisa at 1,041 metres). Pilgrim accommodation (€10 a night on average) is sparse in France however a lot extra not unusual in Italy. More information at csj.Org.United kingdom.
