5 Audacious Bicycle Trips for Lovers

by Guest Author on · 5 comments

Bike tours are a fun way to get exercise and potentially see a new and exciting location. If you're heading on one of these trips with a loved one, then you should consider the following trips for an audacious bicycle trip that you two will remember forever.

1) Thailand and Southeast Asia

Thailand is full of incredible bike paths along majestic beaches and lush rainforests. If you are up for an adventure that will make you feel as though you are in a universe made of beauty, then bike through Thailand. You can take your own bike or rent one from a local shop. You will be able to explore the country easily with a bike. Plus, it will be much more green than renting a car, which is especially important in Asia.


2) Tuscany, Italy

Tuscany is one of the top biking destinations in the world. Thanks to its rolling hills, quaint towns, and ease of travel, it is easy to understand why. Anyone can simply bike through fields of sunflowers for days without need of worrying about safety. This is a great way to experience the countryside of Italy without being overly touristic.


3) Provence, France

Provence is another great place to ride your bike. The famed Tour de France will go through at least one part of Provence every year. You can ride from Avignon to Arles to see ancient Gallic ruins. You can even ride along the famous roads along the Cote d'Azure. Southern France is a great place to visit due to its breathtaking beauty and mild climate that is perfect for a bike tour.


4) San Francisco, California

San Francisco is full of incredible hills that are just waiting to be climbed! This is a very bike friendly city. However, you will need some serious muscles if you plan on making it to the top of the steepest hills. If not, then you can always ride along the wharf and across the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito. There is plenty to see and do while on a bike in the bay area. Take the plunge, and experience a bit of city life while on a fun bike trip.


5) London, England

London may be an unusual choice for a bike lover's trip, but there is plenty to see and explore while cycling. London is a pretty flat city, and easy to ride. Plus, you can take your bike out on one of the many trails that wind throughout the suburbs of the city. A bike is also a great and easy mode of transportation in a city that is quite spread out. Consider taking a bike tour in city like London that is both historic and cosmopolitan. This is one trip you will never forget.


As you can see, there are many bike trips you can take that will be perfect for a little vacation away. Just use your imagination, and you can go anywhere!

Hi Lance, hi Pam:

Thanks for this post…I’m now very curious about these rides. The only place in this list that I have rode is San Francisco. My first time there…I nearly killed myself on my bike. My second trip there…was much more pleasant and was able to enjoy the scenery and my safety a lot more. Adding to your list, I want to ride the 5 Boro Bike tour in NYC…they were a former client of mine and believe it’s probably one of the best ways to see New York. Thank you again for this enjoyable list!

San Francisco is a very fun city to visit – and that you got some time on the bike there – very cool! The NYC ride sounds like a lot of fun, too. I love getting out on my bike – but have typically only done that here in Wisconsin (hmmm…among the cows and cornfields!).

I think my wife would have to agree with you on Tus­cany, Italy as a destination for anything. She mentions going to that place about 25 times a year but we have never made it over to Europe to see it yet. I think we would spend a couple days of the trip with rented bikes and just explore the beautiful countryside and then stop somewhere for wine and cheese.

My family and I visited the Tuscany region of Italy last summer – it’s was so gorgeous (although my kids didn’t care for some of the crooked roads!). It’s a great place to visit – and soak in the history, the culture, and the scenery.

Thanks for the visit!

Biked through Thailand last year and it was simply stunning. No matter what trail you ride you will see some breathtaking scenery.
