Your input - and what we are doing next


We are really keen to offer the best information to make you bike tour enjoyable.  So far in developing MyBikeGuide each of our Bike Guides, covering the Mosel Valley, Alsace, the Ile de Re, Lake Constance, the Yonne in Burgundy, Verona in the Veneto, Bordeaux, Champagne, the Midi, the Elbe, North Sea, Puglia, and Essex has taken around 100 man hours so we would like to know where else we should plan and what details are wrong or missing.
 
Please let us know.

Joel, the Valley looks very nice and reasonably well supported by trains.  It is also easy to access from Bergerac airport.  We like to look for circuits that people can ride over 5 to 7 days (200 to 300 kms) and we would be interested in knowing where a good circuit would go.  Any suggestions?

We have used a variety of bikes all over Europe area and we are not not fully convinced that expensive bikes are needed to have a great holiday.  Yes, it is best if they don't break down and it is nice if they are not so heavy that you can't pull them over a fence or two but expensive bikes can become a liability (stolen, damaged, scratched), still if it works for you and your customers that is great.

If your rental facilty can reach our Bordeaux route then send us your website link and we can add it too our webpage.

Bordeaux
The route we like is shown on a map at Bordeaux Map  though if you work your way through the pages at Bordeaux Guide  you can get to understand the various options, distance etc.  If the distances I show are too long it is very possible to shorten the journey as Bordeaux itself has a number of radiating bicycle paths and quiet roads. 

I hope this helps, if not come back with detailed questions and I will see if I can suggest solutions.

Bike Films
We have added a new page called Bike Films to collect together links some of the more interesting bike clips and movies.  We hope they are interesting, why not let us know or tell us about others we can add.

I need some help in getting started planning a bicycle trip to Bordeaux in May. Where do I find the Bordeaux bike guides? I did not see any trips laid out on your website. I'm interested in riding 25-45 miles per day for about 1 week.

Latest Guides

In the last few weeks we have published two new routes, one for a relatively flat bit of Switzerland and one along the Canal du Midi in the south of France. We also thought we would provide some useful planning maps for a few interesting areas

Elbe river
We enjoyed the Elbe river, the food and spas along its length.  The odd massive downpour and a collapsing rear wheel made up the bad parts of the trip, while a surprise visit to Hanover was a good finish.  We hope you enjoy the guide.

Champagne and Essex

I hope you have seen the new guides to Essex and Champagne.  We felt that Champagne is seen, too often, as just the supplier of wine rather than a great place to visit.

Our choice of the Essex route was harder as there are more spectacular parts of the country however in terms of railway support and ease of access for non British visitors this is a very good area to ride.

What do you think?

Had a look at yr Champagne guide.<br /> <br /> A company called French Pedals, www.frenchpedals.co.uk offers self guided cycling tours along very beautiful River Meuse using La Voie Verte, the Greenway. Looks reasonable value.

Page design changes

Over the next day or so we need to modify the structure of our website as it is now too large to fit on! This may mean the occasional page changing as you are using them and the possibility of disruption. We hope this will not be too frustrating.

North Sea bike path

We've just loaded our North Sea route, it covers a path from Rotterdam to Zeebrugge crossing from Netherlands to Belgium. This route takes advantage of an open jaw ferry route from Hull. We also show a number of other open jaw ferry trips along the Channel and the North sea.

The bike paths are a revelation and shows what can happen when the bike joins the core culture of a country.

In the next few days we aim to publish you our new Bordeaux Guide, this will be followed by a North-sea route (Flanders and Zeebrugge) and then some mini-guides on how to use open-jaw ferry trips to plan coastal bike routes in the North of Europe.

Dutch trip

The MyBikeGuide team have been on "researching" again by touring in Holland between Rotterdam and Zeebrugge. It's one of the few areas in the country which is without railway support and yet like everywhere else there are loads of bike lanes, restaurants offering filling meals and accommodation with special bike sheds. The Dutch are very bike friendly and generally speak very good English. We hope to have some details on this type of trip for you soon.

Mini-Mobile

Last week saw MyBikeGuide in the hills north of Toulouse. Glorious sunshine, 27C and lots of ridge roads swooping down to meandering rivers on a new hybrid. We stayed at Château Dumas which offered far too much great food.

We have visitors to the website who use their mobiles rather than a PC, to keep their costs down and speed up their downloads we have developed a mini-mobile website. It has much less information but gives a healthy overview. Tell us what you think.

New Route2

We've now loaded our Central France bike ride based in the Yonne Department and centred on the lovely city of Auxerre. More to the point it includes the Chablis, St Bris, Irancy wine vinyards and some fine Burgundy canal paths. Enjoy.

Verona - Veneto is now live and our Central France tour will be live this week.  Innocent

We have spent a fair bit of time speeding up some of our pages to make details easier to get to. You should find that only pages with the word "map" in them will be relatively slow.

We are now looking at Bordeaux, the Lot or Champagne for the next tour.  Any views?

Coming up

Our Verona bike guide is almost finished and should be published early next week. It's been great fun putting together as we have had to work with Italian Tourist Information which can be a struggle, don't ever think you know where the offices are let alone what the website are called. Still almost there.

Despite lots of interest in our Ecovia do Litoral articles I think we will do a Chablis based bike route next as it is so pretty even though train support will be limited.

Any thoughts?

Hello, I'm an American gal living in Puglia off the blue line of the Italian designated bike route. I see tour bikes coming through now & again and noticed on your site that 'few' rooms are available. I would like to offer our place. We have a vacation villa which sleeps up to six, an adjoining studio for 3 more & a hostel-type apt in our garage for 2 more folks. Check us out at www.homeaway.com/474866 or let me know how I can offer this to folks traveling through Puglia. I also offer low-cost airport or train station pick-ups with a car bike rack which will hold 3. my number is 39-3286453734 & I speak English & Italian if anyone ever needs assistance in the area. I've been here for 7 years this time, but in-out of Italy (Naples & Puglia) for the past 25. Love your website which I just found while trying to find a map of the bike route on my back road?? any help u can provide is greatly appreciated. I see the while lines & bicycle road markings, bike sign & map posted at the end of my road but can't find it on-line to share with my guests-friends interested in biking here.
