Once the bike touring bug has bitten, many riders look beyond Australian shores for new experiences. Cycling is the best way to soak up the sound and sights of different countries and cultures.  The pace is ‘just-right’ and you can forge real connections with the people and places you pass.

The articles here and here offer a plethora of ride ideas that will make you want to pack your bags and box your bike NOW!

Or check out New Zealand’s Great Rides, which showcase some of New Zealand’s most amazing landscapes. The 23 routes are mostly off-road. It’s an exciting and environmentally sustainable way to reach must-see sights and activities.

Further afield, EuroVelo is a network of 17 long-distance cycle routes that cross Europe. The routes are used by long-distance cycle tourists, as well as by local people making daily journeys.

Of course, foreign holidays often involve city stays. And cities are best explored on two wheels. Start planning your next city break with this recent study of the world’s most bike-friendly cities.

We haven’t had many articles from overseas recently. But now that Australians are travelling again we are sure there must be some great tales to share! Please let us know if you would like to document a recent trip for our blog.
