Travel Tuesday: Three Sure-fire Ways to Recover from Jet lag

May 15th, 2012
by Serena Bishop Gordon

Three sure-fire ways to recover from jet lag…

  1. Mountain Biking: Two wheels and tacky trails
  2. Coffee and Cake
  3. Whiskey Tasting

Our trajectory to Scotland felt like traveling into the future, or maybe the past – but instead of a clean break, we lost half a day, never saw the sun go down and arrived in Scotland after close to 24 hours of consistent daylight. Exhausted but invigorated, we did our best to beat jet lag. Our first full day in Peebles, Scotland, located in the Borders Region just 40 kilometers south of Edinburgh, presented us with relatively clear skies and loads to explore.

What’s better than a Danish music video about cycling in Copenhagen? Not a whole lot.

Lane Love: Stockholm, Sweden

July 25th, 2011

A sunny summer day in Stockholm, perfect for taking the family out for a ride. Even better when the child seat matches the color of your bike.

Lane Love: A Foggy Track

It’s no traditional bike lane or path, but we love this photo of a foggy ride in the Peak District of Britain.

Skiing Fresh Spring Tracks in the Alps

May 3rd, 2011

The view in Solden, Austria

As I hit the “Confirm Purchase” tab on the airline website, my stomach wrenched in doubt. I had just purchased a roundtrip ticket from Durango to Zurich and there was no turning back. As I don’t live in a cave, I was well aware that Europe was having the worst winter on record. Not only had it been dry since January, the 2 week forecast didn’t look promising for the white stuff.

However, skiing in the Alps was still skiing in the Alps. Having been fortunate enough to ski in the Alps more than a dozen times, I had still never had a trip that wasn’t epic. Sure, I had had some sub-par trips for snow, but I had always managed to gorge myself on buttery pastries, good strong coffee and exceptional regional cuisine.

Lane Love: Copenhagen

March 14th, 2011

Ah, Copenhagen. A bike lover’s dream city.

In fact, in all of Denmark, 36% of adults ride their bike to work at least once a week, and 44% of Danish households don’t own a car.

Copenhagen alone has over 340 kilometers of bike lanes. Which is why we have a serious crush on it.
