VeloNews 2011 Ultimate Ride Guide

For some, a trip across the Atlantic to ride the most hallowed roads of professional racing is a far-off fantasy. For others it’s a reality — a dream that has either been actualized or is in the works. As with many things, the difference between fantasy and reality is simply making it happen.

To help make it happen VeloNews presents The Ultimate Ride Guide, on newsstands March 22. The Ultimate Ride Guide takes you inside the best rides on the planet, from the almost outrageously luxurious catered trips to more humble yet thoroughly breathtaking rides like a self-guided trip along the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina and Virginia.

The Guide spans across world-class riding at home and abroad, with special sections focusing on Italy, France, Switzerland and Spain, as well as U.S. events like Levi Leipheimer’s King Ridge Gran Fondo, and Ryder Hesjedal’s Maui Cycling Camp.

Most of the rides detailed are organized events, where, at the very least, the course is set out for you and some level of structure is provided. If you are considering traveling to Europe, there are countless options, from do-it-yourself shoestring trips to fully guided tours where you won’t have to sweat a single detail. Whichever route you prefer, the VeloNews editorial staff tells you where to go, how to prepare and what to expect for your next ultimate ride.
