Are you an avid cyclist or are you considering getting into the sport? Whichever it may be, biking is a lot of fun and offers many benefits. It’s versatile, healthy and you can cycle just about anywhere and anytime! How can you beat that?
So why not take your passion on the road? Pun intended… LOL!
Have you considered taking your next vacation as a biking adventure? Needless to say, you want to go somewhere more beautiful than average. After all, your bike tour should be worthwhile your time and effort. At the same token, you want to choose a place offering safety and some degree of creature comfort!
What follows is a short list of places around the world known for gorgeous views and scenery, particularly as you make your way through the country side on a bike. If you’re new to the biking world and want insights into some of the beautiful places you can bike, why not try one of these bike tour destination spots. This should give you some ideas.
Taiwan is world-renown for its beautiful mountain views, crystal clear blue oceans, white sandy beaches, and steep mountains. Taiwan’s mountain ranges by themselves are enough to make you want to pack up and head out right now!
But Taiwan is great for more than just biking; it’s good for surfing, swimming, parasailing, jet skiing, and more! However, if you’re more of a beginning biker or look forward to a more relaxing biking vacation, Taiwan may not be the way to go. The country has many steep mountains and may offer rather rugged terrain. In short, it’s not every body’s cup of tea.
Next up on the list is France. France is beautiful, filled with lots of culture and unique landmarks. Yes, there is a reason they host the most famous bike race in France!
Whenever you take a bike tour in France, you’re sure to get exactly what you pay for. Most tours are fit for a king (or queen) and are jam packed with luxurious trips to the most famous vineyards and villages in France.
Going on a bike tour in France or somewhere close by would be fit for either a beginner or a moderate level biker because they have some of the mildest and calmest routes available. So pack a camera and get ready for a time you’re sure to remember!
Heading over to North America, the most gorgeous and romantic place to bike has to be in California. One of the largest states in the USA, California boasts ocean views to die for, vineyards that go on for miles, redwood forests that take your breath away, and mountain views comparable to Taiwan’s.
California’s terrain is best suited for moderate to advanced bikers, as the tours generally go on for an extended period of time and can really take the wind out of you if you’re ill prepared. California bike tours are a great way to vacation with your spouse and let your mind wander due to the romantic sun draping itself across the Pacific and the five-star views you will see.
Ireland is also a great destination for bike touring. The island is green for miles and will leave you feeling a little magical. The sight of the uninhabited countryside alone will convince you that you have the luck of the Irish in you. The meals there are wonderfully prepared and contain more Irish culture than you can imagine.
The above places are some of the most popular destinations for bike excursions. But really, there are endless places to consider when you’re planning a bike tour in the future.
Check with a travel company or a specialty tour company to find out what routes they offer and then choose a tour catering to your likes and your physical capabilities as a cyclist.
