This was the Canadian Rockies Cycling trip in the year 2000. It was a while ago so i can only remember a few details, but it was a fabulous cycling trip where I not only learned so much more about biking (it was my first ever cycling trip and I just started training for it 2-3 months before), had wonderful and super fun guides, magnificent views, fun places to stay, great food, and I met my husband on that trip! I have a friend who I met on another trip and recommended this one to her. She went on he exact same Backroads trip a few years after us and met HER husband on it! Both of us still married!

Itinerary

Day 1: Explore Tábor, a 15th-century enclave

Sitting atop a hill overlooking the surrounding countryside Stroll the cobbled streets of its lovely Old Town, lined with colorful homes, open-air cafés and artisan vendors  A clever maze of tunnels lies below the streets, which in times of danger were used to shelter its citizens.

Days 2-3: Pedal across the hills of Bohemia, through tranquil farmland and Holašovice

An impeccably preserved World Heritage-site village  Fall in love with Český Krumlov, a charming medieval town with twisting lanes and red-tile roofs where most of the buildings are designated cultural monuments  Behold views of ornate 13th-century Krumlov Hrad, the second-largest castle in the Czech Republic  Dive into Czech history with Helena, our local friend and historian  Gather at a local pub for a pint-sized taste of Czech culture.

Days 4-5: Discover two intriguing countries and cultures in one trip

Czech treasures make way for Austria's beautiful Waldviertel, draped in forests and rolling fields of barley and wheat—a great place to pedal  Bike along the fabled Danube River and through Wachau Valley vineyards  Visit Melk, whose magnificent baroque abbey is perched high on a rocky promontory  A local oenologist invites us over for a private estate tour and tasting of famous Rieslings and Grüner Veltliners.

Day 6: Austria's picture-perfect villages with onion-shaped church steeples

 Soak up the views from the Dürnstein's castle ruins, where Richard the Lionheart was imprisoned  Say goodbye in vibrant Vienna, an enchanting place to extend your vacation.
