Route Planning


Route Planning

Dream. Read books and online bike travel journals.   Measure distances on Google Earth.  When a trip idea starts to gel, buy a paper map and hang it on the wall.

A well developed network of roads usually allows scenic back road options. For detailed route planning in Europe, Viamichelin has a feature that lets you opt for a route suitable for a bike. Click on the option “by bike.”

Before finalize a route, do your research on weather.  Knowing the usual temperature range allows you to plan what clothing to take, and knowing about prevailing winds  is essential.  Check country information including researching  entry or visa requirements.
