Some sights must be taken in slowly: rock formations shaped over thousands of years, a winery stretching for miles or a solitary stretch of road running along a deserted beach. It's difficult to fully appreciate them from a car or tour bus. Then how about by bike? You'll get some great exercise and have the chance to savor all the beauty unfolding in front of you.

You can find tours throughout the world designed for cyclists of all levels or you can strike out on your own. A tour will provide you with just about everything you could need to enjoy your trip, from sleeping accommodations to luggage transportation to the actual bikes and helmets. These tours give you a chance to stretch your legs and get some fresh air while you take in the natural beauty of the world around you.

So strap on that helmet and let's see some of the top destinations.
