Prachatice: Home to a Culinary Cycling Tour

My Czech lunch of fried cheese and potato finished, I’m ready to head out and burn off some of the 1,000 calories I’ve just ingested. The plan is to spend the rest of the day on a 37 km culinary cycling tour. Make that an ebike tour beginning in Prachatice, Czech Republic. On this beautiful fall day I am biking with six guys – between the ages of 26 and 34. I don’t usually feel…

Cycling in Jordan

Cycling Jordan – Highlights of a Week Long Trip

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, Saudi 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…

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…

Biking Adventures in Transylvania Romania

With low tourist numbers and few marketing campaigns to promote the country, no wonder people have no idea…

Professionally sized bike is one of the road cycling safety tips

Road Cycling Safety Tips To Keep You Alive

I don't know if any of you have been in a road cycling accident. I have. It was back in the days before bike helmets were even a thing. I was biking to St. Michael's Hospital in downtown Toronto where I worked as a dietitian. Because of the traffic, I cycled very close to the curb, so close in fact that my front tire got caught in a sewer grate and threw me head first…
