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.

Ellen & Elmar

Ellen & Elmar

Ellen van der Zwan and Elmar van Drunen cycle together as much as they can and chronicle their trips on their Fietsjunks website (in Dutch). Ellen is the photographer – see her lovely images taken while cycling – so this photo only shows Elmar.

As a pair, they’ve visited countries such as Chile, India, Iceland, Alaska, Morocco, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and China.

“Elmar van Drunen also loves mountainbiking and road racing when he’s in Holland and he publishes technical articles all related to cycling. I am a freelance photographer and work for Dutch magazines such as Bike&trekking, Op Pad and Outdoor Magazine,” says Ellen.

“We are planning a 2-year trip starting in 2013. We would like to cycle from Alaska to Argentina. This year we’ve planned trips through Czech Republic and Canada.”
