Instead of sweating like rain in a relatively closed gym, it is better to go to nature and enjoy the scenery while exercising. Cycling is a good choice, especially on the scenic cycling route, which is more like a romantic date with nature.
There is no need for complicated equipment and too much preparation, just put on the water bottle, put on the hat, and start cycling!
1. Lords Hill
Lodz Hill is a section of the Tour de France, and on the 2020 Tour, it was the highest slope at the time. The 2,300-meter-high Lords Mountain is 21.5 kilometers long, with an average gradient of 7.8 and a maximum gradient of 20. Don't be frightened by this series of numbers, as an enthusiast rather than a professional player, you can "lie down", choose to ride leisurely, and enjoy slowly.
After all, for cycling enthusiasts, the picturesque scenery of the Alps is the biggest charm of this cycling trail. The breathtaking scenery of the Alps becomes the backdrop for the experience as you cycle through the Lodz Mountains, and it feels like a movie set.
The pure air in the mountains and the stagnant rhythm and pace allow you to get away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis, enjoy the simplicity of nature, and give complete relaxation to the body and mind who are constantly chasing the road.
2. Salar de Uyuni
The Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia is a cycling trail that takes days to complete, but every second of the ride is breathtaking because of its dreamlike views. The Salar de Uyuni is known as the "closest place to paradise". Every year, in the rainy season, the entire salt marsh is moistened by non-stop rain, forming a shallow lake.
The quiet lake is like a mirror, reflecting the entire sky in it. It is precise because of this that the Salar de Uyuni is also known as the "land of the sky".
Cycling in the Salar de Uyuni, the most not to be missed is the sunrise and sunset. The orange or red brilliance is evenly sprinkled on the entire salt marsh, and the sky is reflected on the lake, blurring the boundaries between heaven and earth, making it difficult to tell which is the sky and which is the lake.
An occasional breeze stirred up the entire lake. For a split second, you'll feel like you've traveled across the entire universe.
3. Forest of Dean
The Forest of Dean is located in western Gloucestershire, England, and is surrounded by the River Wye to the northwest, Herefordshire to the north, the Severn River to the south, and Gloucester to the east.
It is currently the second-largest royal woodland after the New Forest. The Forest of Dean can be said to be the forest with the most appearances in movies.
This ancient forest can be found in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", "Harry Potter" and "The Lord of the Rings". There are 3 main cycling routes in the Forest of Dean, each with its own unique charm. In addition to a wide variety of plants, there are many smart animals in the forest.
Riding in this forest, it seems that you can feel its pulsation.
Those little creatures hidden in tree holes and caves, through the thick greenery, can't wait to have a romantic date with you.
4. Swamp Rabbit Trail
The Swamp Rabbit Trail in Greenville, South Carolina, USA, is also a biking route through the forest. The 35-kilometer-long route passes through the Riddy River and several urban parks in Greenville. Waterfalls, small bridges, and colorful flowers and trees are scattered on the cycling route, giving people a sense of tranquility and pleasant comfort.
The Swamp Rabbit Trail is picturesque, though not as stunning. The soft paddy grass, the babbling brooks, and the trees that cover the sky. Riding in it, everything is as peaceful as a paradise.
