The Trans-Europa Bicycle Expedition will provide a road through European history and culture – museums, UNESCO heritage sites, monumental castles, splendid palaces and historic cities. This great adventure will begin at the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg – Russia’s window onto the west and the site of one of WWII’s most important battles. Eleven weeks later the tour will arrive in the historic oceanside city of Lisbon. The Trans-Europa will provide a glimpse into Europe’s past … and its future through over 6200 km on the best cycling roads Europe has to offer.

The Trans-Europa Bicycle Expedition features 62 riding days – ranging from 60 km to 145 km, with an average of 105 km or 65 miles per day, and 18 rest days. On the rest days, we will be free to create our own adventures – whether that means exploring landmark museums and cathedrals, experiencing gourmet dining, or just relaxing and sending e-mails home from the local internet cafe.

Spend a day wandering the streets of Europe’s oldest baroque town in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania. In Krakow we have two days to explore the city, including the Rynek Glowny, one of Europe’s most famous public squares. Or take a day trip 70 km west of the city and reflect on the evil that was Auschwitz-Birkenau. While in the capital of Slovenia, we can take time out to visit Ljubljana Castle – sitting atop a hill overlooking the centre of town. Take a gondola ride through the canals of Venice to St Mark’s Square and the Palace of the Doges. See a movie (or movie star) in Cannes. Walk down Las Ramblas in Barcelona and visit the famous Prado Art Museum in Madrid.
