For car drivers nothing beats a wide open road or the gentle curves found round mountain passes made only better if there is little or no traffic. While this may be the case for the majority of avid drivers, it’s also true that others may have differing ideas of what would make up their perfect road. In the same way what makes for the perfect biking road? Is it the adventure of traveling on a smooth traffic-free roads, an element of danger, twists and turns, or having an impressive landscape as a backdrop.
Perhaps the best answer is that a great biking road is a blend of all the above, something that is shared by the following list of some of the world’s best motor biking destinations:
Morocco is a noted winter destination for motorcycle enthusiasts. With light traffic, reasonable surfaces on most main roads, and an amazing diversity of landscapes, the North African country makes for a great place to ride. In addition to good roads, Morocco also offers variety in the form of wild mountain trails, isolated high passes, mule tracks and sand dunes. As a result, there are several motor cycle tour companies that offer packages for Morocco including all inclusive off-road tours, all-day trails, and more.
Motorcycle tours have grown in popularity in recent years and as such there are a number of professional motor biking tour companies offering a variety of destinations. In most cases all you need to do is book your tour and the company will take care of everything from helmets to motorbike tyres for the smooth running of your trip. As such similar tours are offered in Norway too, one of the best destinations for motor biking in the world. A great example is the Bergen to Geiranger tour which takes you past Norway’s longest Fjord, through long tunnels, past glaciers and even waterfalls.
In addition to the allure of its history, Italy not only has the draw of amazing man-made historical attractions, the country is also blessed by an abundance of natural attributes. What’s more, the Italians also enjoy motor cycles too hence the wide availability of Hotels offering perks such as secure parking, tour and trail information, as well as facilities to help you relax after a long day’s ride. Highlights here include the Dolomites in Northern Italy, and the Amalfi Road coast tour from Naples to Salerno.
America (the Wild West)
Many places in the United States of America are also among some of the world’s best motor biking tours but none are as awe-inspiring, or as challenging as the country’s Wild West. Tours here will take you through some of America’s most untamed regions, including Utah, Arizona, and Nevada where you get a wide choice of terrain to ride. Frome cruising on the historic route 66 to hitting the dirt as you go off road, Americas Wild West sure is a top destination for avid bikers looking for some adventure and amazing scenery.
The destinations mentioned above are not the only great motor biking tours for avid two wheel travellers, there are many others including India, Costa Rica, Switzerland, and Turkey, among others.
