My travels and work with Edelweiss Bike Travel

Edelweiss Training Week 2017

I've worked for Edelweiss Bike Travel for one year now, which means it was time for another yearly tourguide training week. Since I'm only in my second year, I have to go for a full week as opposed to the 2,5 day, shorter versions that veteran…

The Australian Tour

My last scouting/pre-riding experience in Tasmania was intended as preparation for my first Edelweiss tour of 2017 that would take us from Sydney To Melbourne and would also include the 5 days on Tasmania I explored in advance. I flew…

Scouting Tasmania

Nearly a year since I left it behind, returning for a job with Edelweiss Bike Travel, I'm back in Australia. I'll be guiding the "Australian Adventure Tour" that goes from Sydney to Melbourne and on to Tasmania; part of which I've done twice…

Il Migliore Degli Amici

After a very tough tour in Spain, I had one last Edelweiss Tour left for the season. I signed up for this tour in Tuscany, Italy because it was in October and one of the last tours for the year I could still get assigned to as a beginning tourguide.…

After my own trip to Sweden, and a little break in Belgium, it was time to head for another tour with Edelweiss Bike Travel. This time the destination was France, more specifically we'd be riding in Normandy and Bretagne, as well as some…

Midnight Trucking

When I finished my Celtic Tour, there was still a big list of tasks waiting for me. First up was delivering the motorcycles from the tour to various new destinations. I'd be driving the trusty Edelweiss Iveco Daily van I got so used to, just…

Celtic Tour

All sorts of warning signs announce the start of the road. "Narrow Route, Severe Bends", "Cars and Lights Vehicles Only" they state. It's claimed to be the steepest in Europe and one of the most challenging in England. Let's see if me and…

Edelweiss Training Tour

As the motorcycle underneath me screams through its rev-range, the landscape shoots past and I start to notice the green giving way to brown and eventually white. The higher we ride, the colder the air gets. The heat from the engine and grips…

Edelweiss Tourguide Training Week

I've just had an absolutely packed 5 days after what was a mellow last week in Australia and an uneventfull week back in Belgium. I traveled for 7 to 8 hours by car, plane and bus from Belgium to Mieming, in Tirol, Austria where the headquarter…
