Did you spend most of your time daydreaming as a child? Perhaps you’d travel from one adventure to the next or fly over mountains and through forests? Everywhere was possible.

With this Collection, you can rediscover your sense of adventure and childlike dreams you thought you had lost, but that have really always been inside you. Travel through incredible landscapes, cycle up high, leave any traffic behind and keep going, even when the asphalt stops. The 15 fantastic routes presented here are a true dream on two wheels. Just choose your favourite ride and set off on your adventure. Whether postcard idylls in Switzerland, wildly romantic lakes in Scotland, fairytale castles in Austria or dream cycle paths in the Netherlands – there’s something for everyone.

The Tours are suitable as day trips, ranging in length from 20 to 90 kilometres (12.4 to 56 mi). Some lead through picturesque mountain landscapes, where you conquer a lot of elevation gain, whilst others are pancake flat. It’s up to you whether you head to Swiss mountain lakes or to the seaside in the Netherlands.

Immerse yourself in the feeling of freedom on your cycling journey. With each pedal stroke, your eyes will light up and take you back to the light–heartedness of childhood. Take a short break from being an adult and rediscover your dreams again.
