Here we showcase some of our tours, but first some people have asked "What stimulated us to undertake such an exploit?"
The answer isn't straightforward. We had been thinking about travelling
the World for a number of years. Should we trek, ride or what? Finances
were lean so lots of air travel was out of the question not to mention
the environmental issues. We had always ridden and done a few shorter
trips, but never really contemplated the "round the world thing." One
day I stumbled across a book by Tim Travis of their travels in Central
America, The Road That Has No End: How We Traded Our Ordinary Lives For a Global Bicycle Touring Adventure
It was probably this book more than any other that made us realise that
we could do this, even on a limited budget. If you are contemplating
doing the same I would wholeheartedly recommend reading this book. Since
we read his first book he has also now written his second book about
their travels in south America.
Whilst we have been building our web site we also came across a site
developed by Peter Vanderlaans who currently lives in Malaysia and has
done a lot of cycling around Europe, Asia and the Asia Pacific regions.
As we progress further east,we are sure that his site will prove to be
beneficial to our travels. You can visit it at www.bicycle-adventures.com
Our friend Christina runs a great web site about the New Forest area in South England. She has a great page on cycling.
If cycling is not your thing, but you are nonetheless an avid traveller, have a look at World Travel Options. Feed your travel bug there and find
inspiration for your next vacation. You can book accommodation, flights, and more. Also meet Marly the
traveling teddy bear.
Following are a few of the rides that we have done over the last few
years. It takes time document them so we will add more rides as time
permits and our travels develop
