Remarkable Bicycle Rides
Remarkable Bike Rides includes a wide variety of cycling challenges from the exhilaration of high alpine trails to more gentler touring routes, such as Hadrian's Cycleway, which crosses from Britain's Solway Firth to The North Sea following the line of Roman monument Hadrian's Wall. There are the classic mountain climbs beloved of followers of the Tour de France and the Giro d'Italia, such as the climb to Mont Ventoux in France and the Stelvio Pass in Italy. Still in Italy, there is the mass participation of L'Eorica, a bike tour in traditional costume on vintage bikes.

Remarkable Road Trips, Colin has swapped four wheels for two in this global treat for all levels of cyclists.
