Congestion from cars can really dampen a travel experience. Gas money, mechanical problems and those repetitive car-ride games take away from what is really going on around us. Alternative travel experiences via bicycle are perfect for saying goodbye to the smoke and into fresh air. There is no better place to experience this than Europe’s bike-friendly atmosphere and spectacular natural beauty. Wilderness Ventures offers two international cycling tours through six different European countries.
The Paris to Rome exploration begins in romantic Paris and graces through the Swiss alps and into Tuscany, Italy and finally end up in Rome. At about 45 miles per day, there is so much to see. Riders receive proper lessons on how to be safe while cycling, especially on rockier terrain and at higher speeds.
Another option is the Amsterdam to Paris, where all members will feel right at home with the streets filled with experienced bikers that mill around Amsterdam and the Netherlands. Four weeks of museums in the Netherlands, chocolate tasting in Belgium, and more than one hundred miles of beautiful European scenery ends with a trip to the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, and Arc de Triomphe for final group photos and a banquet dinner.
