Igel, Paola and Rambo (their rat terrier dog) have been cycling around the world since 2001. By 2009, they’d covered 29 countries, mostly in the Americas.
Now (in 2011) they’re heading from Germany to Asia, and they are going to change their vehicles as well: the next leg of the big journey will be on trikes with two dogs, with Rambo and his daughter Caramba! Follow their epic journey on their website: Grenzenlos (No Borders)
This is David with his bike Milana, in front of Rome’s Plaza de San Pedro.
They’ve been rolling together in Scotland (2007), from Madrid to Beijing (2008), Japan (2009) and China (2010).
“I want to see as much of the world as I can in the slowest way possible.”
This is the motivation behind Rob’s bike ride around the world.
“On a bicycle you can travel slowly enough to appreciate all that’s around you, yet it’s quick enough to get you from one place to the next. I’ve never been happy with the conventional way of seeing a country, rushing from one city to the next in a coach or train, sleeping with your head banging against the window while music plays in your ears until you reach the destination. I want to see all that stuff in the middle that your average traveller on a 10-day holiday misses.”
“On a bike you become a part of the environment, life is literally in your face every day as it can never be when you are travelling on a bus or train. It might not be for everyone but for me there is no better way to see the world and you burn fat not fuel.”
David, Amira & Salome are a Dutch family who love adventure.
In 2010, they’re taking off for a few months of adventurous cycling from Bangkok to Malaysia. They trained for the trip with a 1 month bike tour in France.
