Hiptriptip

Trip-advice of the month

Crater lake

Crater lake, Oregon

Picture source: Zainubrazvi (Wikipedia)

The trip suggestion of this month is the cyclingroute created by Subipete, around Crater Lake in Oregon.

The trip around the lake is 55 kms. It is located in the Crater lake National Park of Oregon.

The lake is known for "The Old Man of the Lake". From far away, it lookls like a person is swimming in the lake, but it is a tall stump of tree which has been bobbing vertically for more than a century.

The tree has been well preserved due to the extremely cold water of the lake.

The other peculiar object in the lake is the cinder cone, called Wizard Island. During summertime you can visit the island.

RouteYou-groups in the spotlight


Lejo

The guys from 08Lejog

The group of the month is 08Lejog of 08lejog team.

They provided a whole set of trips to Land's End, the most westerly point in England.

Land's End is quite a popular place in the UK for RouteYou users. In that area alone, you can already find more than 15 routes.

Land's end is the headland on the Penwith peninsula near Penzance in Cornwall.

Pytheas's Choice

Globespot of the month

Set-up

Every month, we ask somebody to be a modern Pytheas and tell us something about the most amazing place they have ever experienced, and explain why this is!

Globespots of the month: The world of the dacing Matt Harding from WhereTheHellIsMatt

As Pytheas of the month, we selecterd Matt Harding. You want to have a feel-good moment? Read all about him, but especially, watch his video!

Are you our next Pytheas of the Month? Tell us about the most amazing globe-spot you have ever experienced! Or alternatively, ask a friend who you think has a favourite globe-spot and would like to share it with the RouteYou community.

The picture of the month is from the walk "Restinn Warmenhuizen naar Schagen station" of Drunica

The picture is taken at the location Schagerwiel in the Netherlands.

The small lake was created after the dike broke and the water washed away the soil. In these low countries, this phenomena is so common that they have a specific name for such a small lake: a "wiel" (=wheel)

Check out the walk...



Gluring Turing

The Techy-spot

Set-up

Every month, we nominate a more technical item here which is linked to RouteYou activities, directly or indirectly. We have named this item in honor of Alan Turing.

Still worried about the high fuel prices?

This demo of an airpressure engine on a bike might give you hope.

Looks to be very suitable when you feel that all the cyling routes your find on RouteYou look too long. And you wand to reduce your CO emission.

There might be a review necessary for design and comfort...

Let us know if you tried one of the routes with a vehicle like this!
