這一篇不知道該歸類在《旅遊資訊》還是《單車相關》?

在Flipboard上看到一篇 Lonely Planet 的報導:

On your bike: the world's best cycling routes

文中介紹了十條經典的單車路線。

完全同意文章開頭的一段話:

There's no better way to explore a place than by bike.

開車太快,走路太慢,騎車,是最適合的速度!

2007年環半島回來,Ando-san發文記錄了每一天的騎乘,

第一天的文章開頭,寫了一些關於單車環島的感想,

用雙腳踩踏,以最環保最單純的方式,去認識我們居住的這個寶島。

現在回頭看,還是覺得很感動~。

以下為文中介紹的十條路線(只摘要路線標題,原文有更詳盡的介紹):

1. Isle of Wight, England

2. West Coast, Tasmania, Austrialia

3. Luberon and Mont Ventoux, Provence, France

(呂貝宏山區和風禿山。這就是我們這趟在法國看到很多老先生老太太騎上山城的區域)

4. San Juan Islands, Washington, USA

5. County Clare, Ireland

6. La Farola, Cuba

7. National Highway 1, Vietnam (這條是離台灣最近的路線)

"This iconic road runs the length of the narrow country from north to south. It is the most popular cycling route in Vietnam, a long but immensely rewarding trip along the best parts of Vietnam's coastline. The route has some reasonable hills, climaxing in the mighty Hai Van Pass (496m) - with a breathtaking descent as pine-clad mountains loom to the west and the South China Sea vanishes into the east. Take the time along the way to gaze at networks of lush rice fields blanketing the hidden valleys below; fish, snorkel or dive the turquoise waters of the coast; and soak up the atmosphere of delightful rural hamlets.

The Indochina Trekking Company, based in Hanoi, offers a variety of cycling adventures in Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand."

* 不過文末有很多人質疑越南這條路線,說騎在這條路線上是一場夢靨.....

"I can't believe Vietnam's Highway 1 is even on this list! Vietnam is a beautiful and very diverse country, but Highway 1 is certainly the very worst way to see it. In contrast, Laos is a cyclist's dream..."

8. Otago Peninsula, New Zealand

9. Cape Breton Island, Canada

10. Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy
