Bruno & Hilda

Bruno and Hilda

“We’re Hilda and Bruno from the Netherlands. Bruno is actually French but moved to the Netherlands because of … Hilda of course.”

“After having toured in Europe and in few exotic countries like Vietnam, Morocco or Ecuador we decided, a couple of years ago now, to take a one year break from our work and from our comfortable lives and start a longer and demanding cycling trip in Africa.”

“We started the journey in Zambia in July 2011 to first explore southern Africa (Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa and Mozambique). After a short Christmas break spent with our families we restarted the journey in Tanzania. After having visited Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda (where we are now) we are about to enter Burundi and Tanzania (for the 2nd time) to finish in Dar Es Salaam in June.”

So far it has been a fantastic experience. We have been writing about it in our website: www.abicyclette.nl

The stories are in Dutch and French but English-speaking people can follow us on Twitter and Facebook, and don’t forget the photographs.”

Ride & Glide

“I am an overweight, unfit, 50 year old Occupational Therapist, ex-teacher and gliderpilot. For my 50th birthday I decided I would embark on a series of journies that would see me visiting every gliding club on the planet.”

“I am about to embark on the first stage of the journey, a ride from Germany down through to South Africa. I am hoping to raise funds for charities connected with assisting disabled people. More details on www.rideandglide.co.uk - find out why I chose a bicycle over a motorcycle for the journey.”

“One bit of advice – hills are great on a fully loaded touring bike ……. when going down them!”

Steven & Taressa

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 have been cycling for years, I lived in Poland for a few years and biked while there. I go off road around Wales and cross country where ever I can. As a teacher I use the long summer to cycle around Europe, the R1 route, along the Rhine, Denmark, Sweden, France and parts of Africa,” says Keith.

“I just love travelling by bike and get out as much as possible. The bike ways in Germany are so easy to follow it is so relaxing. Last year I cycled over 2,000km towing my Y frame trailer with all my camping gear.”
