5 Best Cycling Routes Worldwide

One of best ways to explore nature and enjoy your holiday trip

Enjoying the sight

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.

Skilled riding

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 win-win scenario.

Everybody needs a break

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.

Group cycling tour

Danube Route

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.

Remember to take pictures on your cycling route

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.

Good fitness is essential for cycling routes travel

Karakoram Highway

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.

Great sights are a reward in itself

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 can.
