Knowing the most beautiful regions of the world by bike is a unique experience and does not require the breath of a champion of the Tour de France, the most traditional cycling event in the world. You can choose between the routes of dozens of carriers that already offer closed packages or make your own trip, deciding the stops and the ideal rhythm of pedaling.

Loire Valley (France)

Yes, it is possible to make a trip to France even more charming, cycling the castles of the Loire Valley. The ride is choppy with baguette, cheese and wine picnics and lots of history. The stops include nights in fairytale castles and lush vineyards make up the landscape of the famous region in the south of the country. Anyone who wants can leave the bike for a while and fly over the balloon region before proceeding. The itinerary of the agency visits some of the main points: Chissay-in-Tourraine, Parc des Mini-Châteaux, Amboise Forest and the grand Château de Chenonceau. The best period to go is from April to June or September and October when the temperature is pleasant with water bottle flasks on Commit4fitness.

Tuscany (Italy)

Another romantic option of the same agency is Tuscany, in a circuit of 240 km, starting in the Chianti region – with the right to taste the classic wines. This cycle route passes through Siena and Val d Orcia, where are the famous Tuscan valleys and hills. Another high point is the Abbazia di Monte Oliveto Maggiore, where about 20 monks live.

This itinerary is a little more intense, with 50 km traveled on average per day, and with many climbs and descents by the hills that make up the unforgettable scenery. To ease the tiredness, picnic on the shore of Lake Trasimeno, wines by day, walks through markets and medieval citadels and the sweet and romantic landscape revived by the magic light of Tuscany.

Route Of The Castles (Germany)

In Germany there are four routes available to travel through a relatively small region that concentrates more than 100 fortresses and castles. The four routes are interconnected with different starting points and have extensions between 210 and 310 km. That is, in Münsterland it is necessary to pedal very little to reach the points of interest, gardens, markets, squares, churches and old buildings extremely well preserved.

Among the must-see attractions are the Hülshoff castle, the Nordkirchen palace (known as the castle of Versailles in Westphalia) and the imposing castle of Vischering, transformed into an interesting museum.

With departure and arrival in the city of Münster (the German capital of bicycles) and pedaling an average of 55 km daily, one can complete one of the circuits in six fairly quiet days.

Provence (France)

Among the numerous routes through the lavender lavender fields of Provence, Fábio Ferreira, from Special Trip, recommends the route Languedoc – Roussillon, with 565 km. This is for the really well prepared, because it takes breath to face the daily stretches of more than 70 km. “This journey begins in a typical village in the Provence region, at the Chateau D’Arpaillargues in Uzès, surrounded by lavender fields and the impressive bridge where the Roman aqueduct built in the 1st century BC, the Pont du Gard, passes. Then cross the Languedoc-Roussillon region with its vineyards, mountains and the Languedoc National Park,”he says.

The architecture is a spectacle at every stopping point, be it the medieval village of Saint Guilhem le Désert (Unesco World Heritage Site) or the beautiful Carcassonne, known as Europe’s best preserved medieval city. At the end, the great challenge of the Pyrenees, rewarded with the magnificent view of the Mediterranean sea. But if you are not in such good shape, there are other easier roadmaps. Whatever you choose, you will not miss lavender fields, vineyards, Roman ruins, medieval castles and cozy villages with stone houses, reason enough to toast every night.

Alentejo (Portugal)

One of the most beautiful Portuguese circuits passes through Alentejo and Algarve, with daily average suggested by the Pisa Trekking agency of 67 km, totaling the 335 km that lead from Sesimbra to Lagos in the Algarve. The itinerary includes the Southwest Alentejo Natural Park, the Costa Vicentina and Sagres, the starting point of the caravels of the Discoveries. To relax, the crossing of a dense forest of cork oaks (tree from which the cork is extracted) and the beautiful deep blue beaches of the coast.

Mendoza (Argentina)

One does not have to go very far to make beautiful bicycle trips. In neighboring Argentina there are options with charm and more affordable price. For those who want to join the pedal to good gastronomy and tasting excellent wines, Mendoza is the right choice. The Auroraeco agency has a six-day itinerary with easy and quiet pedals, passing through the most famous wineries and Catena Zapata Winery, considered one of the best in the country. The total bicycle route is around 140 km, and the best time to travel is between November and April.

New Zealand

In the paradise of extreme sports there is no option. One of the best known and short tracks is the Queen Charlote Track. With starting point at Ship Cove, it is 71 km that you can divide in up to three days. The agency Butterfield & Robinson offers a longer circuit in the country, which departs from Christchurch and goes to Queenstown in nine days.The pedaling begins on the Canterbury plains in the company of the sheep and is entitled to stops to enjoy good wines.

One of the most beautiful points of the trip is Lake Tekapo with its impressive shades of blue contrasting with Mount Cook, New Zealand’s largest mountain. The daily routes vary from 20 to 50 km, with moderate difficulty. To make the experience more unforgettable, when arriving in Queenstown leave the bicycle and go to the air: there is possible to do a scenic flight of paraglider.

South Africa

The vibrant South Africa has become one of the top destinations for bikers around the world. The script can begin in the disemboweled Cape Town, more specifically in the Cape of Good Hope. Landing the coast, drive past False Bay – where a colony of friendly penguins lives – before heading to the vineyards of Stellenbosch, perfect place to sample an unusual pinotage. Then it’s time to take a trip riding Montagu, a city of Victorian architecture and continue along the rural and arid roads typical of the country. In the town of Hermanus it’s time to set aside the bike for a bit to spot whales and, for the bravest, take the plunge to see the white sharks. On average, there are 30 km of pedaling a day for seven days.

San Francisco (United States)

One of the friendliest cities on bicycles is certainly San Francisco. A short road map that gives the taste of pedaling around is to Tiburon passing through neighboring Sausalito and crossing the impressive Golden Gate. The tour is less than 35 km away and starts at Fisherman’s Wharf, where there are several bike rental shops. Near the marina, kitesurf kites make everything even more colorful and special. Crossing the bridge should be done by different sides according to the day of the week and as soon as the cross is in Sausalito, with great restaurant options to “refuel”. If you have little time, head back to San Francisco by ferry, but with a little more breath you can reach Tiburon. Return by ferry and enjoy the tour, which passes through the island of Alcatraz, which housed the famous prison, and enjoy the beautiful view of the bay.

Argentina – Uruguay

A quiet and well-considered itinerary for the neighboring countries is part of Buenos Aires. There, enjoy the cycle routes to travel around the city and visit the sights. After enjoying a tango show and enjoying the look of Puerto Madero, the revitalized port, take a boat to Uruguay. The Tigre river terminal is the starting point for motorboats and catamarans to the islands of the delta and Carmelo, an Uruguayan city. From Carmelo to Colonia del Sacramento it is about 70 km through the quiet and country roads of the country and passing some river beaches. Book at least one day for Colonia, a charming city whose historical center is Cultural Heritage by Unesco because it preserves in its architecture landmarks of the Portuguese and Spanish colonial period. If you prefer to return to Buenos Aires, just take the boats that depart direct from Colonia to the Argentine capital.
