One of best ways to explore nature and enjoy your holiday
It is highly improbable that you will find more fun and at the same time more
beneficial hobby than cycling. In fact, some go as far as to claim that
cycling isn’t a hobby at all but in fact a lifestyle. These people, care for nothing in the world as they do for
their bike, and are always on the lookout for new cycling routes to visit next. If you count yourself amongst them,
here is a short list of some of the most interesting cycling routes in the world.
Pacific Coast, U.S.
When it comes to diversity of landscapes, this incredible cycle route simply has
it all. Not only will you enjoy in the view of what is probably the most beautiful ocean in the world, but also
enjoy the sights that you will encounter on land as well. Even though this kind of route is perfect for rekindling
your relationship with the nature, you will be encountering some rather unique urban sites as well. First and
foremost, on this route, lies the great city of San Francisco, one of the most famous touristic locations in whole
of United States. Because of this, undertaking this route is what can be called a genuine win-win
Underground Railroad Route, U.S.
Back in the more unfortunate of times, some of the most courageous amongst
Americans, helped smuggle slaves to free territory via series of underground tunnels. Today, a small fraction of
this completely unique experience can be relieved and all of this can be done on your bike. The
most curious thing about this cycling path is that it is underground in its entirety, which guarantees that this
experience will be unlike anything else you ever did in your life. In this way, a memory of a lifetime can be
In order not to be biased in favor of cycling in the United States, here comes one of the greatest European cycling routes ever. As a second
greatest European river, Danube passes up to 13 countries while 19 countries share its basin. These countries may share a same geographical area but are historically and culturally quite
diverse. It could therefore be said that the thing they all have in common is the beautiful coast of Danube. Now
as for the cycling route, it starts in Germany, goes through Austria and doesn’t end until Budapest the capital
Munda Biddi Trail, Australia
Now, to move for a bit away from the old world once more, this incredible
Australian route is all that a cyclist can wish for. Its name in Aboriginal means “path through the forest” and
even today it more than lives up to the name. Its greatest downside is that the route itself is 206 miles or 332
kilometer long, which is why it can be a bit too much for those new to this sport. Luckily, by getting one of
those amazing electric bikes to help you when the going gets tough, which can be a saving grace that you have been
looking for all the time. As you have probably already guessed, missing out on this incredible adventure is not
something that you should allow.
Finally, this incredible Asian cycling tour, located on the border between China and Pakistan, is one of the most incredible mountain
regions in the world. This being said, here you can enjoy your solitude and attempt to reconnect with the
nature. Needless to say, even this hidden mountain oasis will soon probably be defiled by industrialization so
hurry up and visit it while there’s still time. A clean mountain air, wind rushing through your hair and nothing
but an open road in front of you and a clear sky above.
Unfortunately, no list will ever be elaborate enough to contain all great cycling
routes in the world. Still, for any passionate cyclist, visiting any of the aforementioned locations is bound to be
a huge hit. Needless to say, after cycling just once on them, many of these routes you will want to revisit as soon
as you possibly can.
