Beautiful Bike Routes | Barton Haynes

Today’s post is going to inspire a bit of wanderlust for all of the cyclists following along. Recently, a friend asked me the following question:

“What dream cycling routes would you like to travel to?” 

This question inspired the most recent post on titled “Ask Bart Haynes: The Best Cycling Routes in the World.” There, I listed 5 of the most scenic routes for cyclists spanning the globe.

On the same note, I’m going to share some photographs with you all today of more beautiful cycling routes that Mother Earth has to offer. From desert to forest to mountain, this planet has anything you could ask for in terms of cycling terrain. To accompany the images on this post, I’m going to attach some of my favorite traveling quotes to spark your imagination and motivate you to get out and explore on the saddle of your bike.
