Some people cycle for sport. Some for health. Some for transportation. And some for recreation. Cycling through a city or country is a great way to get to know the landscape and people. Independent travelers can plan their own tours and set their own pace, while beginners may enjoy touring with an organized group and an expert guide.

Of course, if you want to take a cycling vacation you’ll need a bike. What type depends on the distance and terrain you plan to cover. Those planning to take a longer trip may want to invest in a touring bike, which offers better stability and a more comfortable ride. Many destinations, including major European cities like Paris, offer bicycle rentals for travelers.

You can bicycle almost anywhere there are roads (or even off-road if you have a mountain bike) but beginners and those traveling with children may want to choose shorter, flatter routes. France, Italy, Ireland and the Netherlands are popular. The California coast with its winding, scenic seaside routes also draws cyclists, as do the beautiful vineyards of Sonoma and Napa Counties.
