Discover the best places to bike in this carefully curated guide to seeing the world on a bike with over 100 bike tours of the world’s most breathtaking places to pedal. Dramatic and panoramic, these are the best routes to ride on two wheels whether you are a passionate newbie or a seasoned pro. Organized by terrain (urban, mountain, on-road, and scenic), each tour was constructed by leading French cycling expert Claude Droussent who co-founded L'Étape du Tour which is an organized mass participation event that allows amateur cyclists to race over the same route as the Tour de France on the tour's rest days.

From family-friendly urban sightseeing tours to epic rides off the beaten track, the destinations featured range from easy bike tours of Paris to more challenging adventures in diverse locales like Utah's Zion National Park, the Ecuadorean Andes, or Mt. Snowdonia in Wales. Included also are some of the world's favorite cycling destinations: Normandy's lush countryside, the historic Hudson River Trail, an exotic Phnom Penh-to-Laos trail along the Mekong River. Explore the hills of Tuscany with stops for regional cuisine and great art and architecture, or soak up the local color on the Bolivia-to-Peru loop along the shores of Lake Titicaca. Each tour comes fully illustrated including details about length, estimated duration, elevation, difficulty, and points of interest.
