“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.”

“After a few holidays on bikes, we realized that there’s no more freedom than that. In 2009 we cycled all over Denmark and in 2010 to Vietnam. Both totally different but both extremely beautiful to cycle!”

“Due to these trips we decided to cycle to Sydney Australia, starting on 3 March 2012 in Breda, the Netherlands. The trip of our lifetime!!! Yahoo!!!”

“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!!! :)”

“I’m a College Student in my mid-20s, living in Sydney, Australia. I refurbished this 1982 Raleigh Royal Touring Bicycle in the second semester of 2010. Just about all the parts date from the 1980s, so it is practically a period might-have-been for a customised touring bicycle from the late 1980s.”

“I took it on a ride from Mittagong to Goulburn via Wombeyan Caves but only got half-way through the 4-day trip when grit off the unsealed road worked its way into the freewheel mechanism and seized it up. I had to hitch a couple of lifts the last 70km to Goulburn after a visit to a repair in Taralga confirmed that the freewheel was dead.”
