Whether you are a newly enthusiastic cyclist or an experienced trip goer you will be excited about the prospects of going to new locations and enjoying your rides. If you are new to a bike to work scheme you may well be entering a whole new world of adventure. But where is the best place in the world to go cycling? Which are the routes that will inspire you the most and give you the most pleasure?
Well in this piece we are going to look at some of the best cycling destinations in the world. These are destinations that should certainly be in your bucket list.
This diverse location, starting 9,000 feet up in Colorado town is one of the best routes in the world. You spend time on single track routes through groves of aspens and then move into wide and open trails across meadows. You spend time navigating rocky mining roads. You spend time descending at pace down the Teocali Ridge, one of the best descents in the world.
There is no doubt the best time to go is in summer. The Fat Tire Bike Week is a really good festival towards the end of June, which is fun for everyone. You’ll have to be ready for some thunderstorms though. This is a route for people who are fit. It can be lung bursting at times and the descents are as exhilarating as the ascents are tough. Definitely one for your list.
Tuscany is a great place to ride for both the novice and serious rider. It is a diverse mixture of cycling. You can spend time on flat speedy straights, tree shaded winding lanes, ascents and descents that will get the blood pumping around your veins, and sleepy routes through farm paths. You really can’t go wrong with the Tuscany region.
Added to the cycling is the fact that you can’t get much better food and wine in the world. If you really want to enjoy yourself then head over during September and October during the harvesting period. Certainly late spring and early autumn are the best places to enjoy Tuscany.
