Exploring the Magdalen Islands in Quebec by Bike

The Magdalen Islands or their French name - Îles de la Madeleine are an archipelago of more than a dozen, almost treeless islands, linked by kilometres of sand dunes as far as the eye can see. Plunked down in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, they take up a mere 206 square km (80 square mi), so there’s a good chance you’ve never heard of them. Although French is the first language for most of the…

A Cycling Trip – South Bohemian Region Czech Republic

Three days of cycling in the South Bohemian region of the Czech Republic merely whet my appetite for what's available in the country. Lots has been written about the Prague to Vienna bike ride, especially with so many outdoor-adventure companies offering the tour. But the lesser known parts of the Czech Republic like the South Bohemian region are not nearly so well represented online.  Our group of cyclists, made up of five young males and…

A 3 Day Sea To Sky, BC Mountain Bike Adventure

If you own a mountain bike, chances are you’ve heard of the riding in British Columbia. It’s legendary for good reason.

The Highlights of a Week Long Trip Cycling Jordan

A week long trip cycling through Jordan is a fun way to see this safe and peace-loving country, often referred to as the Switzerland of the Middle East. While it's surrounded by noisy neighbours including Iraq, Syria, Saudia Arabia, Israel and the West Bank, don't let that deter you from visiting. I'm serious. Over the 10 days I was cycling Jordan and exploring the country I never felt unsafe for a second. You can expect…

Way Out There: Cycling Northern Vancouver Island

The North Island has a hold on me, and I keep going back. Northern Vancouver Island is vast, sparsely populated, and you’re more likely to meet a bear than a tourism spot. A super destination if you like the great outdoors. This article shares three favourite spots for cycling northern Vancouver Island. Two are rough and remote (don’t expect pavement!), while the third is a mellower cluster of tourist gems. I’m a cycle tourist and…

7 of the Best Bike Trails in Minnesota

I had the privilege of biking 7 different bike trails in Minnesota over the course of a week. On some, like the Mesabi Trail, I merely got a taste of the biking experience. But there wasn't one I found lacking. In fact, Minnesota is one of the most progressive and bike-friendly states I've run into in the United States. There are literally hundreds of miles of paved trails and well over a thousand miles of…

Biking Adventures in Transylvania Romania

“My revenge is just begun! And I spread it over centuries, and time is on my side!” You may recognize this line from Bram Stoker’s famous Dracula novel. And Dracula may be the only thing that comes to mind when thinking of Romania, right? In fact, there’s so much more to discover about this Eastern European destination. With low tourist numbers and few marketing campaigns to promote the country, no wonder people have no idea…
