Roads & routes links



General, World,  Europe & Scandinavia

  • Top 100 roads: nice bucket or todo list for pavement riders
  • Trans Euro Trail (TET): 38,000 kilometers worth of GPX routes from the edge of Africa to the Arctic Circle. Created by a community. Provided for free.
  • Dangerous roads: while title might give an impression the target audience are specifically those with a death wish, this is one of the more comprehensive pages on adventurous pavement, gravel and dirt roads. A must-check for anyone with adventurous plans!

Tracker & Planner tools

  • Locatoweb: have used this service fairly extensively. There’s a free version and you can pay for upgrade. No planning tools. Apps available.
  • Rever: started to use this last winter for planning. Good alternative, if used with Google maps. No limit on number of waypoints. Apps available.
  • MotionX: GPS tracker/app for iOS devices. Not tried it myself yet but I plan to.

Two Wheel Safety

  • Bicycle safety in the UK: I am also a bicyclist and value safety. Like most in Norway.
  • Essential Guide to Protective Gear for Bikers: Choosing what to wear when riding isn’t just about protection from injuries. It is also about comfort. Properly fitting gear means you stay comfortable, warm and dry on. Properly fitting gear will not distract you when riding.
