Drop down into the Weald of Kent: the rolling hills are gentle at first but you know you have Westerham Hill ahead, which keeps the legs pumping. Kent in the sun is a pretty, pastoral patchwork, and even in the rain it is never miserable. Stop off at Hever Castle for a quick history lesson before heading to The Swan pub, in West Peckham, for a homebrewed ale. With so many little roads linking up, you get a taste for an older England without ever having to do the same route twice.

Hever Castle - One of my favorite places
Hever Castle, Kent, England was the childhood home of the 2nd wife of King Henry VIII - Anne Boleyn. After the Norman Conquest by William the Conqueror it was given to a Norman noble - Walter de Hevere (d’evere). It was fortified as a stone quadrangular moated castle by William De Hevere c1270 Its said to be visited by the Ghost of Anne Boleyn floating over the river bridge strolling the grounds where she had a happier life. http://gen.culpepper.com/archives/uk/places/hever.htm#
Hever Castle dates back to the 13th century and is best known as the childhood home of Anne Boleyn. Around 1505, the Bullen family, who had acquired the Castle in 1462, added a comfortable Tudor dwelling house inside the protective wall. This was the beginning of the glory days for Hever Castle, although sadly short-lived when Anne Boleyn (Bullen) failed to produce a son and heir for King Henry VIII. The rest, as they say, is history.
Hever Castle, Kent, UK - Def wanna see this! I love Tudor history!
Laguna Verde, Bolivia - Uyuni won out because nothing can prepare you for riding over its swathes of white salt, baked hard under a fantastically blue sky. This is a landscape just waiting for your imagination to paint it. Moreover, there is a bonus in the title - salt FLAT. The ride can be done in a day, which is probably advisable as nighttime temperatures sink to around -20°C (-4°F). Make sure you have fat tyres not road ones.
Lord of the Rings might have been filmed in New Zealand, but Norway was surely a strong contender. Jotunheimen, the highest mountain area in Scandinavia, offers endless options for the strong of thigh. The ride is a steep climb but crystal views of still mountain lakes along the way make it worthwhile. If you prefer fewer hills, try the Sognefjord Cycle Route between the towns of Borluag and Turtago: it combines mountains and fjords without causing your muscles to cannibalise themselves.

Shimanami Kaido That's a ramp. For bikes. A massive ramp for bikes, and it's only a tiny part of just one of the many such ramps on this route. The amount of money and planning and design and materials and effort that went into this bike route is pretty amazing and although I am not complaining, I have absolutely no idea why they would ever build something like this.

Located in the heart of Taiwan, the Sun Moon Lake has long been charming curious foreigners and local visitors alike. Its calm, turquoise water has also inspired many ancient Chinese poets and painters. The route around the largest lake in Taiwan is a three-hour ride, where visitors can enjoy lake scenery, experience Thao aboriginal culture and learn about the local ecology in the Nantou County. If you arrive in early spring, you can even catch the cherry blossoms near this mirror-like lake

The Karakoram Highway is the highest international road in the world, reaching an altitude of 4,700 meters at the Khunjerab Pass. Starting in Kashgar, China, cyclists can travel up to 1,200 kilometers on mostly unpaved roads, but the views are as breathtaking as the riding. The snow-capped Karakoram Mountains will always be within sight, towering over the Hunza Valley. You will also come across some small villages and towns near the Cathedral Ridge, with glaciers reaching the road.

Biking is arguably the best way to explore Udaipur, Venice of the East. Cyclists often need to pedal past herdsmen and their goats and camels, sharing narrow, old pavements in this rustic but romantic city. But surrounded by ancient forts, temples and majestic palaces, Udaipur conjures one of the best biking experiences, allowing cyclists to truly discover rural India. How to get there: Udaipur is directly linked by rail with major cities including Delhi, Himatnagar, Jaipur, Ajmer, Kota

Kettle Valley Rail Trail, British Columbia — 280 miles The big attraction here are the stunning trestle bridges, long tunnels, and mountain scenery glimpsed from an easy grade that never exceeds 2.2%. (Many of the trestles were destroyed in a forest fire in 2003 but are being rebuilt. The photo shows a rebuilt trestle.) Ten days is a easy decent trip.

El Camino De La Muerte, Bolivia - Narrow sections (San Juan Pass being the most dangerous), blind curves, and climate changes all keep this road as one of the top places to go for thrill seekers. If you're superstitious, be sure and stop by the Witches' Market in La Paz for a good luck charm before your journey.

Kathmandu trail, Nepal - The ride from Lhasa to Kathmandu defies superlatives. The countryside covers an amazing range from barley filled valleys, dramatic arid passes, the grandeur of Everest to the almost unreal descent into the greenery of Nepal clinging to the walls of steep river gorges.

Samurai Trail Shikoku, Japan - Shikoku provides a rare window into ancient Japan. Here away from the crowds, we cycle along ancient Samurai paths that wind over mountain passes and along crystal clear mountain streams. Life appears to stand still in these remote valleys as we ride through old villages on narrow roads built for horses, where old gabled roof rural houses stand sentinel to the passing of time. The riding is mostly on nicely paved secondary roads that see little traffic.

Picos de Europa, Spain - Situated on Spain's north coast and subject to the vagaries of Atlantic weather, they can be wet and sometimes wild, but the sense of adventure is well worth it.

Picos De Europa, Spain - Several days worth of hiking trails in this national park.
Spain’s natural scenery – from the sandy coastline to the vast plains – is constantly surprising, but the lofty peaks of the Picos de Europa mountain ranges are without doubt the most spectacular. Craggy mountain peaks, verdant valleys and raging rivers combine to make this chunk of northern Spain perfect hiking and adventure territory – whitewater rafting and snowshoeing are particular favourites. There’s heaps of wildlife too including the endangered Cantabrian Brown Bear and wolves.

Peloponnese, Greece - After all, where else can you cycle through a literal Arcadian idyll and end up at the home of the Olympic Games? Or perhaps you are a hardier soul and fancy a visit to the Spartans in their home city? The cycling is mainly on roads of slightly dubious quality and you're never very far from a hill of some magnitude.
