The 2021 Trans-Europa: A New Beginning
We recently made the decision to delay the start of our Trans-Europa tour until September 12th. Previously, it had been scheduled to begin in early July. We also moved the start line to Budapest, Hungary with our end destination remaining Gibraltar, where we will arrive on October 27th.
This change in schedule has greatly increased the prospects for the tour to run successfully, in terms of fully vaccinated North Americans being allowed to travel freely in Europe, as well as local populations having achieved a high rate of vaccination by the time of the tour. We feel this will all lead to an enjoyable, and in fact celebratory, return for ourselves and our participants to European cycle touring.
Budapest is also the perfect place to start the tour in 2021. Our European Tour Leader and Route Researcher, Gergo Szanyi, who has been working with TDA since 2006, is Hungarian and based in Budapest. His knowledge of the city, it’s history and culture, and it’s bicycle routes is legendary. For those able to arrive a couple of days before the tour start, Gergo will happily take you on an exploration of the city by bike!
Our route from Budapest to Gibraltar remains unchanged from the original version of the Trans-Europa, and the route is packed with highlights. To give a taste of what you can look forward to, here are 6 exciting highlights, one from each of the 6 countries we’ll be cycling through.
