Although we are avid, long time cyclists, cycle touring was a new endeavor for us. From the time we got married, we found ourselves anxiously wondering what our “next big adventure” ought to be, and we finally decided that a long term cycle tour was for us. Our jobs graciously granted us 90 days of leave (its amazing what can happen when you just ask!) and we hit the road in Milan on April 19, 2011 returning on July 15th of the same year.
Ultimately we rode through Italy, France, Switzerland, Croatia, Slovenia, Hungary, Austria and Germany. You can also check out our cycle touring section to see entries from our tour.
We’ve since returned home to Utah where we continue to pursue weekend adventures, but look forward to the day when we can hit the road on another cycle tour.
