How will cycle tourism rebound from the pandemic?

As we all know tourism is one of the sectors worst hit by the fallout from the global Covid-19 crisis. It will also be slow to recover to what existed before March 2020, if indeed it does - or should.

My first e-bike challenge - Mt Coot-tha in Brisbane

What inspires you to explore the world by bike?

I don’t know about you but I get a huge amount of inspiration (and envy) from reading other people’s stories of bike tours  - short or long. However more often than not it is the long distance adventurers who have the most impact on me – particularly bikepackers who spend months or even years on the road crossing continents and the globe with seemingly apparent ease. They get to visit and become immersed in remote places that (at best) I’ve barely heard of.

Three ways to go on a bike tour without all the repacking

When you're on a multi-day bike tour you probably don't want to cover the same ground each day - after all the main point of a tour is to see and experience new things. But having a home away from home means your focus can be totally on the cycling and the local area.

Karlsruhe by bike

Did you know that the inventor of the bicycle, Karl Dreis, was born in Karlsruhe? Ok, it wasn’t quite the modern bike but his ‘laufmaschine’ (running machine) was a recognisable two-wheeler, albeit without pedals or chain. Also born here was Karl Benz, the inventor of an inferior vehicle...

Biking around Lake Zurich - 10 things to see and do

It is perfectly possible to circumnavigate Lake Zurich by bike in one day. It’s about 90km around but you can cut about 25-30km by using the Seedam causeway rather than cycling around Obersee.
