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

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. But the fact that there’s a lifetime’s worth of riding in such a small area makes it hard to plan a shorter trip there. So what’s the ultimate three-day crash course, the riding that you just can’t miss? We’ve “sacrificed” a bunch of our own precious personal time testing and riding BC’s best trails,…

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 in the country I never felt unsafe for a second. You can expect to be greeted…

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. 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 bikepacker (a rare breed up…

Biking the Dinosaur Trail near Drumheller

If you'd like to go biking through an otherworldly landscape of canyons, hoodoos and coulees with the added attraction of seeing the world's largest dinosaur, then you need to bike the Dinosaur Trail near Drumheller. The city of Drumheller is just 90 minutes from Calgary but with its badlands scenery it feels a world away. On the drive there make the short-detour to see Horseshoe Canyon. It will whet your appetite for what's ahead. Biking the…

Biking Adventures in Transylvania Romania

“My revenge is just begun! And I spread it over centuries, and time is on my side!” You may recognise 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…

Biking Le Petit Train du Nord through the Laurentians

Le Petit Train du Nord, a 200 kilometre multi-use trail in Quebec's Laurentian region checks off almost every box cyclists dream about. Cue the beautiful countryside, delicious local food, charming small towns and villages, excellent signage and relatively easy cycling - especially if you bike from north to south. Throw in the option of getting a shuttle to the start pointing point in Mount-Laurier and a daily luggage transfer and you've got one winner of…

The Best Bike Rides in Canada You Can do in a Day

If you're someone who loves a good bike ride but hates biking on roads then I think you'd love what I consider to be 19 of the best bike rides in Canada. Most you can do in a day, two max. They all travel on dedicated trails and while you may have to cross the occasional road you won't have to worry about big trucks flattening you into a human pancake. Those that are longer…

7 Things to Do on a Trip to Waterton Lakes National Park

Waterton Lakes National Park may be the smallest national park in the Rockies but it sure delivers a punch for its size. While parts of the park remain closed after the Kenow Fire last year, the townsite itself was unaffected and there is plenty to keep you happily busy for a couple of days, especially in summer and fall. Try an e-Bike If you're at least 16 years old, you can rent an ebike (which…

Biking The Glenbow Ranch Trails

Biking the Trans-Canada Trail in Glenbow Ranch

If you're looking for a stunning section of the Trans-Canada Trail (TCT) in Alberta to cycle visit Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park, an oasis of rolling green hills on the banks of the Bow River. The TCT trail is completed in Glenbow Ranch though there is a plan to connect Cochrane to Calgary. The only thing missing is a small strip of land near the Calgary city limits. Getting to Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park For now…
