Bike Ideas For A Euro-Coastal Road Trip

Europe is the motherland of many famous bike races and bike route treks, including the Tour de France and the trans-continental bike route. However, it can be tough to decide what road trip to take on your own along the sweeping European coastline on beach bike cruisers. Where does one start and how do you plan your trip?

Despite these setbacks, a bike tour across Europe can save you money, makes you more self-reliant, and gets you off the beaten path. Here are some ideas to help you plan your own multi speed beach cruiser road trip through Europe.

Causeway Coast

This gorgeous 280-mile route extends along the Antrim coast of Northern Ireland, winding along rivers, valleys, and the historic walled city of Derry from Ballyshannon to Larne. There are tons of shortcuts to take, promising that your adventure can be comfortably completed within a week’s time. There are tons of towns along the route, providing bars, cafes, and toilet facilities.

Be sure to stop and take in the legendary city of Derry, the second-largest city in Northern Ireland. It is the last completely intact walled city in the country and offers tons of cultural attractions for history buffs.

Route 500 in Germany

Cutting through the Black Forest of Germany, Route 500 is a biker’s dream, offering deserted roads, lush flora, and plenty of backwoods trails. In our opinion, the Schwarzwald Hochstrasse trail is one of the best and most beautifully elevated sections of highway along this route. A few sections of the route take you through some pretty thick stretches of forest, but the road is always wide and comfortable to bike on. As a major roadway through the region, this highway can get pretty busy, so always ride carefully.

The Firmstrong Urban Single Speed Beach Cruiser is the ideal bike for this journey. Equipped with a super-comfy seat and hip frame, you’ll be riding through Germany in supreme comfort and style.

Riding the Rhine River

Spanning four European countries and 1,233 KM in length, this bike route is suitable for families and cyclists of all fitness levels. Running from the soaring Swiss Alps to the scenic North Sea, the Rhine Rivers boasts picturesque towns, lovely nautical landscapes, and historic villages where you can grab a bite to eat or simply take in the views.

On your beach bike cruiser route, there is a plethora of sites you should check out, including the many museums of Mainz, the Worms cathedral, the Palatinate Forest, and the Braubach and Marksburg Castle.

Amalfi Coast in Italy

Southern Italy is one of the most beautiful vacation destinations in all of Europe, and riding the Amalfi Coast on a cruiser with gears will be an unforgettable experience. Coastal mountains plunge into the ocean, offering sparkling lagoons and vertical expanses dotted with historic villages. While on your route, stop at the hillside town of Positano, a precipitously picturesque town featuring vertiginous houses, colorful culture, decadent restaurants, and posh boutiques.

To get the most out of your trip in Italy, sit astride the Barrel 3 Speed Beach Cruiser. With a streamlined configuration, large and cushy seat, and wide tires, this bike provides a smooth, cushioned ride for easy rolling.

As you can see, there are numerous beach bike cruiser routes to take throughout the coasts of Europe. To learn more, sign up for our Mailing List below to get exclusive deals on products and more tips on biking. Move free!
