Short Routes - Big Adventure

Do you believe that the joy and freedom of bicycle travel should be accessible to everyone? We do! And it’s with this vision in mind that we launched the Short Routes Program.   

Imagine embarking on a two- to five-day journey, meandering through breathtaking landscapes, discovering hidden gems in your local community, and creating cherished memories along the way. Our Short Routes program offers precisely that to new and experienced bicycle enthusiasts alike.

We need your help now to expand our collection of free routes and make it accessible to even more people.
