Join this self-powered caravan through ancient Asian empires along the world’s most famous trading route
Our self-powered caravan begins in Beijing, China, the political and cultural centre of China and crosses mysterious lands, fiery deserts, and forbidding mountains. Almost 20 weeks later riders will arrive in Istanbul, the majestic capital of Byzantium, the Roman Empire, the Ottomans and now the Republic of Turkey. The route follows the Silk Road northwest before dropping back south in Central Asia. Included are visits to destinations definitely off the beaten track - the Pamir Highway in Tajikistan where we will climb to over 4600 meters and cycle across the 'Roof of the World' and distant Mongolia, where riders will cycle along ancient trading routes through the vast steppes and meet the country's nomadic people, experiencing their age-old traditions.
Silk Route participants will ride to the mystical Central Asian cities of Samarqand, Bukhara and Khiva, and camp amongst the stunning meadows, rivers and peaks of Kyrgyzstan. There are points where quietness pervades and where the original travellers of the Silk Route seem to be just beyond the next hill, beckoning cyclists further along this arduous trek. Time and time again, riders will be amazed at the layers of history emerging from the sand, shake their heads at all that has been lost and take heart from all that is being preserved and created. Each group of Silk Route riders will be enriched by an intricate knowledge of ancient lands crossed and the inspiration that comes from sharing a grand adventure with new friends and fellow nomads.

- Tajikistan's Pamir Highway

The Bike Slovenia Green Gourmet Route (BSGGR) is the perfect itinerary for ever-evolving global travelers who demand everything: pleasure, adventure, and responsibility.
Combining food, Slovenia Green-certified destinations, beautiful and varied landscapes, challenging and safe cycling, and “the world’s most sustainable country,” the BSGGR has something for everyone but never forgets its roots — the communities scattered across this magnificent Central European nation.
The route, which only visits green-certified destinations, crisscrosses nearly all of Slovenia, which was named the European Region of Gastronomy for 2021. Good food and wine are a part of the country’s culture and since 2020 Slovenia is on the map of Michelin awarded restaurants as well.
The Bike Slovenia Green Gourmet Route begins in Slovenia’s capital, Ljubljana, from there transfer is organized to the Soča Valley. Cyclists then pedal to Brda and Vipava Valley, roll into the Karst Region, and then take another train back to Ljubljana and furthermore towards east. After discovering the Sava River region, travelers go north to Ptuj, along the Drava River, to Maribor.
The BSGGR is a route that travels at human speed and makes nature, food, great wine, and green-certified destinations its main must-see activities. But, perhaps the most important aspect of the new itinerary is that it makes the people along the trail its most important asset.

The American cycling Dream: crossing the United States by bicycle.
Many riders have cycled the United States from East to West or the other way around. Of course, a great achievement.
It is probably a bigger challenge to traverse the United States from North to South over the dirt roads of the Rocky Mountains, following the Continental Divide. The divide of roughly 2,800 miles between Canada and Mexico splits the North American Continent in two. Drops of rain that fall on your left side flow into the Atlantic or the Gulf of Mexico. Drops on your right side will find their way to the Pacific. The drops of sweat from your brow will evaporate in the thin air of the Rocky Mountains or fall to the trail and eventually make their way to one of the two great Oceans. This is the trail of “The Great Divide” !!!
In 1998, the Adventure Cycling Association developed and published the world’s longest off-pavement cycling route and called it “The Great Divide Mountain Bike Route”. The original route starts in Banff, Canada, zigzags along the Continental Divide, climbs over isolated passes and finishes in Antelope Wells at the border of Mexico.
The Great Divide takes you through a wide variety of terrain and geographic features. You cycle through isolated river valleys, mountain forests, wide open grasslands, high desert, alpine wilderness, and, at the end of the ride, a section of the Chihuahuan Desert. Along the way you can expect to meet cowboys who drive their cattle across the prairie. You will cycle through pristine woods full of deer and elk, and of course there is always some trepidation that you may stand face-to-face with a grizzly bear. Colorado's Indiana Pass is the highest point on the route at 11,910 feet.

Cycling in Germany, Austria and Italy conjures up a myriad of thoughts and ideas
The lush valleys, lakes and mountains of the Tyrolean north; the romance and old world charm of regions like Tuscany and Chianti; the sheer cultural heritage of the beautiful medieval walled towns; lazy lunches, great food, history, architecture, wine and company, oh and a spot of cycling too. Perfect!
Starting from Munich, Bavaria’s ancestral home, we venture southwards past the well heeled residents of beautiful Lake Starnberg towards the Austrian border. We encounter jaw-dropping scenery in Austria and also cycle into Switzerland very briefly before crossing the border into Italy. We will use parts of the sublime “Via Augusta” cycle route marked in particular by a giggle inducing descent to Merano which will have you feeling like a kid again! From here we continue to the mighty Lake Garda and romantic Verona before arriving at the historic city of Mantova. A welcome flat day across the Po plain takes us to the Appenini mountains and on into Tuscany where we have a well earned rest day in the stunning medieval walled city of Siena. More stunning views and classic Italian towns such as the “Tufa Towns” of Pitigliano and Sorano and villages await as we continue to the final destination of Rome, where you may wish to spend an extra day or two exploring this magnificent city.
Italy is a hilly country and there are a number of climbs throughout this tour as we cross Tyrolean valleys, traverse the Appennini mountains and Tuscan hills with a number of stunning but challenging days riding. The tour is comparable to our Lands End to John O’ Groats tour in terms of difficulty (actually a little harder) although we do have a rest day in Siena which is a great place to explore and rest your legs.
The ‘Munich to Rome’ tour will be undertaken over twelve days cycling with an arrival and departure day either side. We aim to keep away from busy roads wherever possible. The tour encompasses some of these countries most spectacular countryside and exhilarating cycling. It should be noted that the road surfaces in Italy aren’t as good as in France so a minimum of 25mm tyres is recommended with hard wearing tread. Also, on the tour, there are a few sections (never usually more than a few hundred metres) that are compacted gravel. Riding on it is not as bad as it sounds really but the utilisation of these sections have been essential to the overall quality of the route, as they have enabled us to keep the route safe, scenic and enjoyable as opposed to being forced onto dangerous sections of road.
Italy can also get very hot during the summer which is why we choose slightly cooler months when the temperatures should be in the 20’s (as opposed to the 30’s – 40’s in the height of the summer.
