My travels and work with Edelweiss Bike Travel

The Alps By Scooter

July started off with the first motorcycle tour of my Edelweiss season. Well not actual motorcycles, but rather Vespa scooters, just like on my tour in Tuscany that I enjoyed so much two years ago.  While the scooter tours tend to offer less…

E-Biking in Istria

June was supposed to be pretty busy already. I definitely wasn't planning on taking on another trip, but I tend to have trouble saying no to these things. So when Stephan from Edelweiss called me about an opening on an Edelweiss E-bike tour,…

The Alps and Pyrenees Back to Back

In September I had my last two Edelweiss tours; I'd taken up a short, special 4-day tour with Japanese customers before I'd be heading to the familiar Pyrenees Extreme tour. As a note: I did not take any of the riding photos during the Japanese…

The Viking Experience 2017

I'm a world away from the sunny mountains of Spain, where I was last riding. The skies are full of grey clouds, slowly moving along, the landscape doesn't contain a single tree, just rocks, moss and grass with patches of snow in between.…

Pyrenees Extreme 2017 Round 1

I've been to the Pyrenees quite a few times over the past year now, but since the riding is so excellent I didn't mind that Edelweiss assigned me to some more tours in that area. This time around it was a tour fairly similar to my previous tour…

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.…

Flying With the Falcons - Pirineos 2016

Normally my last tour in France would have been my last for the season. But because a tour was cancelled that I was assigned after my UK tours in June, I felt like I really would not have done enough tour days this year. So over the course of…
