“I have breathed the air since 1963. Although I have lived some days on this planet, I still do not have always a clear vision about my life! Regardless, hiking at home and around the world on foot as backpacker or by bicycle is one of my permanent life values, as is photography. In 2008 I decided to make my first long trip on a bicycle: a 72-day solo trip through Turkey and Persia. It was one of the most powerful experiences I had.”

“In 2008 we were coming to the end of a 2 year backpacking trip in Asia, and were tiring of that form of travel.”

“We’d met plenty of cycle tourists in the Stans the year before, had liked the idea and decided to try it out with a cycle home to Oxford from Istanbul. The freedom and joy at being outside all day soon had us hooked on two-wheeled travel, so we headed to South America the following year and spent 19 months cycling on that beautiful continent. Out there we soon discovered that our favourite rides were on quiet roads in the mountains, well away from traffic and the big cities.”

“Stories from our trips are at Pikes On Bikes  and we’ve set up Andes By Bike, which has route information and maps of many of the small routes we cycled in the Andes.”

Steven and Taressa married in August 2011 and pedaled into their extended honeymoon.

They have little experience in cycle touring but such petty details haven’t stopped either of them in the past. With all their belongings in a basement in Lake Tahoe they have set off to taste, hear, see, feel, and of course ride the African continent.

Funny stories and pretty pictures of their travels through 2012 can be found at www.ourspokeandworld.com

“I am from Malaysia, and love to cycle tour. The photo here is from my trip to Koh Samui, Thailand. Actually, this was my first trial in cycle touring and i love it. Since my state (Perlis) borders with Thailand, it’s easy for me to ride in Thailand instead of touring in Malaysia. It’s a peaceful ride in Thailand and I don’t usually take the normal road but try to use small roads through the villages. For this year (2011), I plan to ride all over Malaysia in December. Happy cranking to all.”

“I cycled Australia in 2008 for 5,000 kms from Brisbane to Darwin, for fun. I was so inspired from my amazing ride I decided that I would have to cycle the whole thing: 18,000 kilometers in 7 months.”

“My first ride was an amazing experience, especially as I had never really done a tour before, but now… I am ready for a real tour!!! :)”
