The charming Catalan city of Girona is one of Europe’s best cycling bases for amateurs and professionals alike, as Peter Maniaty discovered.

With snow forecast to fall in the Snowy Mountains in early November, we took Bianchi's recently-released Impulso AllRoad to the cold country to put it to the test.

Relatively unknown to many of Sydney's locals and visitors, the Cooks River Cycleway connects Botany Bay on the coast and Homebush Bay in the west. 23km in length, it is the perfect destination for recreational cyclists of all ages & abilities.

China is a country full of traditions, with a massive history and not the first place we think about when dreaming of our next cycling holiday.

Roughly 120km south of Taipei, Taichung is Taiwan’s second biggest city, mostly flat, and very rideable. This is where Peter Maniaty tested out the local bike hire scheme.

It’s one of the highest, longest climbs in Australia. Karen Forman climbs the iconic Charlotte Pass.

It is one of the region’s most difficult and challenging climbs, and its literally just a few minutes ride from the centre of town – we take a look at Bowral’s legendary Oxley Hill.

A fairytale vineyard located on a slight rise along a quiet and shaded country road in the Clare Valley, Kilikanoon estate is simply picture-perfect. We recently visited the winery by bike and found it the perfect way to get there ...

When most of us think about Croatia, we think of Split with its magnificent coastline and hundreds of picturesque islands or of the early 1990’s when 20,000 people died fighting in the Civil War. But who knew it was a rider’s paradise?

'Truly magic.' They were the first words to come to mind soon after arriving in Noosa, initially for a walk around town to find a bite to eat, then kit up, take the bike out of the car, and go for a ride.
