Planning a bike tour? This site is all about inspiring and helping you to get out and travel by bike.
It’s written by us, Friedel & Andrew. We’ve cycled in 33 countries and by 2010 we’d covered over 60,000km. At that point, we stopped counting but on average we cycle 4,000-5,000km a year.
Where to start? That’s a good question. This website contains hundreds of articles and resources.
