1. Coast of Dalmatia Bike Tour (Croatia)
A stunning region, already famous as one of the top European destinations appropriate for road trips, especially if near-by countries or the Albanian Riviera get included. Although, choosing to experience this route by bike will offer you a different perception of scenic coastal roads, charming islands, and medieval towns and memorable moments that will last for a life-time. How many and most importantly which cities you will include in your plan, depends on your endurance and time, although we consider it necessary to not miss Split (Diocletian’s Palace, UNESCO World Heritage Site), go on to Šibenik (83 km) and finally reach Zadar (94 km)
2. Roskilde Fjord (Denmark)
Denmark and Netherlands are Europe’s most bike-friendly countries, something that their flat terrain and lack of hills and slopes makes possible, without excluding inhabitant’s culture and education. Therefore, it’s not surprising to have a Danish on a bike relevant article, whilst its Nordic scenery makes it worthy of exploring.
An 80-90 kilometers bike route around Roskilde Fjord, will engrave in your memory breathtaking coastal landscapes and enrich your cultural knowledge, especially related to the Viking’s history, when stopping to the cities in between. Starting from Roskilde, proceeding with Jyllinge and its waterfront, then Frederikssund with the Viking Ship museum, and finally back to Roskilde.
