Bike Tours

Best rides of our lives.

We’ve been coasting around the world with the wind in our hair since the early 90s. (See our book about cycling in Vietnam.) Fortunately, our bikes are a lot less rickety now — but our favourite path is still well off the beaten one.

So we’ve curated the best bike rides of our lives: ones that surprise you at every turn, from the little things (a field of blazing-red poppies) to rolling vistas so beautiful they make your heart ache. You can ride hard, or not break a sweat on an e-bike. Your choice. Either way, at night you rest in one-of-a-kind lodgings (converted monastery, anyone?) and replenish your calories in fine style.

And this, my dears, is the famous Café Iruña in Pamplona, where Hemingway hung out to eat, drink, smoke and work on his novels. Apart from now being smoke free, Café Iruña hasn’t changed much since he was here - the massive gilded mirrors, the old tiled floors and Arabesque pillars are the originals, dating from when it was founded in 1888. And despite the tourist draw of the famous author, it is still a local haunt. Maria is looking very happy, not just because she’s soaking up a bit of literary history, but also because lunch - the main meal of the day in Spain - is fabulous. Roast lamb (raised on nearby pastures) so tender it falls off the bone and an excellent Rioja red. Of course we will be here again during our new Rioja Spain #bikingtrip which starts in #pamplona.

I promised you vegetarian options! Spain is mushroom heaven, and these were all locally foraged. And those artichokes? Locally grown. Spain provides about 30% of the world’s supply of #artichokes. It’s great to eat them at the source. And in the middle of the picture - an expensive truffle, sniffed out not too far away, by specially trained dogs. Ready for lunch?
