Jon Langston
October 6, 2014

The view from my room at Hotel Bemelmans Post of the Rosengarten massif in the Dolomites. Who could ask for more? (Photos by Jon Langston) Riding the Alps is the dream of many a rider, but the challenge of motorcycling Europe’s famous mountain range can sometimes prove to be overwhelming. Even those... Read more »

Plaza Major in Santa Rosa

Burt Richmond
May 5, 2014

Wherever we went, like the Plaza Major in Santa Rosa, our BMWs attracted large crowds. (Photos by Burt Richmond) As our early-morning flight from Miami descended into the Havana airport, the pilot came on the PA: “Ladies and gentlemen, we will be landing in a few minutes. I suggest that you turn your... Read more »

The Ultimate Alps with Edelweiss Bike Travel

Dolomites

Dexter Ford
February 5, 2014

Austrians and Italians have fought for centuries over the Dolomites. Now we know what all the fuss was about. About 50 million years ago, Africa, which was probably glancing down at its iPhone, crashed headfirst into Europe, which was just sitting in plate-tectonic traffic, minding its own business. Like... Read more »

Rider Magazine
January 2, 2014

Why go on a guided tour? Because motorcycles are meant to be fun, not hard work. You can enjoy the solitary freedom of the open road if you choose, or the camaraderie of the group ride. You don’t have to spend all afternoon worrying about where you will sleep that night. You may meet new friends out... Read more »

Bill Stermer
December 5, 2013

Recently, an ancient wooden wheel and axle were discovered near Ljubljana, Slovenia, which carbon dating revealed to be 5,200 years old.

The Patagonia Experience: Touring Chile and Argentina with RIDE Adventures

The Cuernos del Paine glow like beacons in the morning sun. The weather is fickle, though—clouds were already gathering as we motored off for our last day of riding.

Arden Kysely
August 8, 2013

The Cuernos del Paine stop us in our tracks. One rider after another pulls over to gaze at the chiseled peaks jutting up like deformed teeth in a Tolkien monster’s mouth. Gliding into the scene on motorcycles only enhances the experience. We slalom down a canyon road that reveals new vistas at each... Read more »

Riding Adventure in Costa Rica and Nicaragua with Edelweiss Bike Travel

Though the crater looks quite peaceful, the Irazú Volcano is still listed as active; the last time it belched massive quantities of fire, lava and rock was a mere 50 years ago, so I kept the ignition key in my hand.

At 11 a.m. we were parked 10,000 feet up at a small restaurant on the two-lane Pan-American Highway, sipping excellent coffee and putting on an extra layer of clothing in the cool air. Hummingbirds hummed around the feeders outside the view window. We had just passed the cloud-shrouded 11,450-foot Cerro... Read more »

The long lonesome highway south to Punta Arenas.

Arden Kysely
April 5, 2013

(Read the dispatch from Day 8, or start at the beginning with Day 1) We get an early start (for us) from our little island on Lake Pehoe, snapping more photos of the Cuernos as the rising sun paints them in living color. In the time it takes to haul our luggage across the bridge and load the bikes, clouds... Read more »

Day 8: Patagonia Adventure Tour

Motorcycle + Cuernos = Delight.

Arden Kysely
April 3, 2013

(Read the dispatch from Day 7) This is the day I’ve been waiting for since we began this trip. The consummate Patagonian experience awaits: today we ride to Torres Del Paine National Park, home to the most spectacular scenery in the entire region. And I nearly miss it all because I can’t find my... Read more »

Day 7: Patagonia Adventure Tour

We start the day riding the plains of Argentine Patagonia on Ruta 40.

Arden Kysely
April 1, 2013

(Read the dispatch from Day 6) The weather is perfect as we depart our rustic but comfortable accommodations at Estancia Cueva De Las Manos near Baja Caracoles and continue south along iconic Ruta (route) 40, the main north-south highway in Argentine Patagonia. Eric had warned that Ruta 40 separates... Read more »
