Pedalnorth is written and managed by cycling writers and athletes around the globe, bringing you the very best routes and unbiased information. Our team work within the global cycling community, alongside their role at Pedalnorth simply to give something back, by sharing their own life-cycle with you.
We’ve expanded our routes database all over the globe this year, with new road cycling routes from Nadezhda in Florida and Mary Wilke in Europe. After the tragedies that many will have experienced during the pandemic, we want to bring you more ideas for bikecation vacations too, and we’ll be writing more about places to visit and ride.
And, we’ve recently ridden the Transfargarasan Challenge in Romania, writing about the experience, as we continue to try to encourage others to take on a cycling adventure in beautiful Romania and Transylvania.
