  1. Hamburg, Germany
    Aside from hosting one of Europe’s biggest bike races, the Vattenfall Cyclassics, Hamburg is a great city for those looking for more leisurely rides. Bike outside of the city center to the Altes Land to see ancient windmills and blossoming apple trees. http://cntrvlr.co/0OSLVcJ Photo Courtesy: Kuttig - Travel / Alamy
  2. Minneapolis, Minnesota
    Minneapolis stands out because of the Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway, a series of park areas that encircle the city. The byway has separate paths for bikes that essentially transform the trail into an entirely separate all-cyclist freeway. http://cntrvlr.co/0OSLVcJ Photo Courtesy: Greg Ryan / Alamy
  3. Vienna, Austria
    Vienna is constantly working to make itself better for cyclists, with traffic-calming efforts and a variety of excellent trails. The Danube cycle path stretches 245 miles throughout Austria, including sections by Vienna’s Stadtpark and Karlskirche. http://cntrvlr.co/0OSLVcJ Photo Courtesy: Luis Dafos / Alamy

  5. Barcelona, Spain
    Barcelona has an extremely successful sharing program, Bicing, which has pushed cycling to the forefront of transportation. You can find tons of great routes both through the city and seaside—get into the Moll de la Fusta bike lane for a scenic ride past the palm trees and beaches. http://cntrvlr.co/0OSLVcJ Photo Courtesy: Hemis / Alamy
