Christi & Tauru

Christi & Tauru

Christi and Tauru are currently (April 2012) riding in Chile, on their way to an 18-month journey across roughly 16,000 miles and 15 countries on a tandem bike from Argentina to Alaska.

Along the way they’ll stop at schools for the visually impaired to talk about their story in hopes to raise awareness. You see Christi is blind and Tauru is going blind. They hope to inspire others with disabilities that anything can be accomplished.

This isn’t the first time they’ve set out on a long adventure. In 2009 they completed a trip across the US.

“We’re complete novice cyclists who last year decided to cycle the Silk Route on a whim. One year on and we’re still going: headed to Singapore.”

“We sold our house and belongings in August 2009 and set off from our home in Scotland to cycle the countries of the world. We have been cycling ever since and loving every minute.  So far, we’ve cycled in the United States, New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Spain, Portugal, France and the UK.”

“I started thinking about bike touring while reading Rob Lilwall’s story ‘Riding home from Siberia’. I took my first long trip in south America in spring 2011 and I’m planning my next one in Asia on a Hase Pino tandem for September 2012.”

“When I was 10 years old I cycled from Prestwick in Scotland back home to Newcastle, England with my Dad. They were fantastic memories which I never forgot.”

“Now age 47, with a re-discovered passion for cycle touring. I’m taking 6 months (possibly longer!) to travel around Europe on my own. Starting at the end of May 2012, I’m spending 3 weeks in the Netherlands, then heading to Arnhem to pick up the R1 Euro route to Berlin. From there it’s the River Salle cycle route through Germany, the River Main cycle route to the Rhine and the Glan-blies cycle route to France.”

“Then I’ll head to the coast for Euro Velo 8 to Cadiz in Spain, straight up the centre of Spain and France before finally arriving back home in Newcastle upon Tyne in the UK.”
