The Wonders Of The Trans-Europa Cycling Expedition


The TDA team completely exceeded my expectations. The route was stunning, challenging, and fun!

We have run the Trans-Europa Cycling Expedition, the longest supported cycling tour in Europe, 6 times since 2012 – 3 times from St Petersburg to Lisbon, once from Helsinki to Lisbon (Thank you Mr Putin), once from Ljubljana to Gibraltar (Thank you COVID) and in 2023 from Tallinn to Gibraltar. In 2025, inshallah, we will meet up again in Tallinn for the journey across 11 European countries.

Over the years, there have been a number of great blogs from the tour, designed to give you an idea of all the amazing sights and experiences that come with such an epic transcontinental journey. Here are 5 of our favourites:

1 – Bike Trails & Urban Lanes: Discovering The Bike Culture Of The Baltic States

2023 Content Creator Ethan Weil took a look at the fast developing bike infrastructure in the Baltic States and visited Latvia’s unique Saulkrasti Bicycle Museum. “Simply put, the Baltic States are a beautiful and tranquil place to ride a bike.

2 – 8 Potential Side Effects Of Cycling Across Europe

In 2018 TDA Founder Henry Gold took a light-hearted look at the potential ‘risks’ of cycling across Europe on trips like the Trans-Europa. “Europe is the most popular cycling destination in the world so it may surprise you to learn that when you take a long cycling trip through the area, there are real dangers lurking along the roads and trails.

3 – Montpellier to Barcelona – 5 days on the Trans Europa

2014 Trans-Europa cyclist Clive Smith took a closer look at the 5 riding days between Montpellier, France and Barcelona, Spain. “The riding itself was stunning. We travel through Frances largest wine producing region and you can see why – endless miles of red and white grapes grow in the vineyards – stopping to taste a few of these sweet fruits is an absolute pleasure.

4 – 10 Reasons You Should Cross Europe On A Bike

What’s the best way to cross Europe? To Founder Henry Gold, the answer is obvious – by bike. “How else can you meet local farmers working the fields one day, visit a great museum the next day, find a quiet historical town the day after and enjoy a great workout all at the same time?

5 – Keszthely: Museums, Museums, Museums!

You never know what a small town in Hungary might surprise you with. TDA staffer Michael Coo joined the 2023 Trans-Europa for the Alps & Adriatic section and was delighted by what he discovered in Keszthely. “Paris might have the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay and the Palace at Versailles but it ain’t got nothing on this town!
