5 Best Cycling Routes Worldwide
One of best ways to explore nature and enjoy your holiday
It is highly improbable that you will find more fun and at the same time more beneficial hobby than cycling. In fact, some go as far as to claim that cycling isn’t a hobby at all but
in fact a lifestyle. These people, care for nothing in the world as they do for their bike, and are always on the
lookout for new cycling routes to visit next. If you count yourself amongst them, here is a short list of some of
the most interesting cycling routes in the world.
Pacific Coast, U.S.
When it comes to diversity of landscapes, this incredible cycle route simply has it all. Not only will you enjoy
in the view of what is probably the most beautiful ocean in the world, but also enjoy the sights that you will
encounter on land as well. Even though this kind of route is perfect for rekindling your relationship with the
nature, you will be encountering some rather unique urban sites as well. First and foremost, on this route, lies
the great city of San Francisco, one of the most famous touristic locations in whole of United States. Because of this, undertaking this route is what can be called a genuine
Underground Railroad Route, U.S.
Back in the more unfortunate of times, some of the most courageous amongst Americans, helped smuggle slaves to
free territory via series of underground tunnels. Today, a small fraction of this completely unique experience can
be relieved and all of this can be done on your bike. The most curious thing
about this cycling path is that it is underground in its entirety, which guarantees that this experience will be
unlike anything else you ever did in your life. In this way, a memory of a lifetime can be gained.
In order not to be biased in favor of cycling in the United States, here comes one of the greatest European
cycling routes ever. As a second greatest European river, Danube passes up to 13 countries while 19 countries share its basin. These countries may share a same geographical area but are
historically and culturally quite diverse. It could therefore be said that the thing they all have in common is
the beautiful coast of Danube. Now as for the cycling route, it starts in Germany, goes through Austria and
doesn’t end until Budapest the capital of Hungary.
Munda Biddi Trail, Australia
Now, to move for a bit away from the old world once more, this incredible Australian route is all that a cyclist
can wish for. Its name in Aboriginal means “path through the forest” and even today it more than lives up to the
name. Its greatest downside is that the route itself is 206 miles or 332 kilometer long, which is why it can be a
bit too much for those new to this sport. Luckily, by getting one of those amazing electric bikes to help you when the going gets tough, which can be a saving grace
that you have been looking for all the time. As you have probably already guessed, missing out on this
incredible adventure is not something that you should allow.
Finally, this incredible Asian cycling tour, located on the border between China and Pakistan, is one of the
most incredible mountain regions in the world. This being said, here you can enjoy your solitude and attempt to
reconnect with the nature. Needless to say, even this hidden mountain oasis will soon probably be defiled by
industrialization so hurry up and visit it while there’s still time. A clean mountain air, wind rushing through
your hair and nothing but an open road in front of you and a clear sky above.
Unfortunately, no list will ever be elaborate enough to contain all great cycling routes in the world. Still,
for any passionate cyclist, visiting any of the aforementioned locations is bound to be a huge hit. Needless to
say, after cycling just once on them, many of these routes you will want to revisit as soon as you possibly
