Jason Mcanuff

Posted December 3rd, 2010

This is Jason. He’s a Brit who, at the time of writing (December 2010), is on his way from California to Argentina on a virtual bicycle train. That’s his bike (named Montreal), plus a Bob Trailer, rear panniers, rear crate, front basket and a handlebar bag.

“I’ve been on the road 7 months now,” he tells us. “Actually I ride pretty fast, but spend A LOT of time off the bike, volunteering on farms, and community projects and whatever else sounds good. My passions off the bike are climbing and learning as much as I can about sustainable living, permaculture, farming and people.”

He has no deadline and will keep riding until the money runs out. Check out Jason’s website, www.bikingit.com

Jason leaves us with this thought: “When I’m on my bike, wherever I may be, I can’t help feeling like I have the world under my pedals, and not on my shoulders.”

Anna Kortschak

Anna Kortschak is on an open-ended tour of the Americas that may yet turn into an open-ended tour of the world.

She has no fixed plan or time frame and she is in no hurry to get anywhere in particular. Over the past year she has ridden from Prudhoe Bay in Alaska to the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico.

Anna goes to some lengths to avoid riding on highways and major roads and if there is a choice between a paved road and an unpaved road she will definitely choose the dirt.

Her love of bike touring began when she decided to leave a job in the UK.

“After a year and a half in London, it began to seem rather grey and so I left, alone, on my bicycle – travelling east. My final destination was Prague, in the Czech Republic, but I went by way of Germany, Austria, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Romania travelling three and a half thousand kilometres down the Danube, from its source in the Black Forest to where it enters the Black Sea.”

“I was absolutely hooked by the charms of travelling by bicycle and have spent a lot of my time since dreaming up different bike routes in various parts of the world and touring when I can.”

Bhinti and Olivia started a big bike adventure in December, 2008. Their trip began from Central California and took them down to South America. “Every day is a surprise, on this trip we really get thrown into the unknown. You just don’t know what is around the next corner and where you are going to stay and what is going to happen,” says Olivia. You can read more about their journey on their website, Crazy On Bikes.

Alex & Meredith are chronicling their journey through North America and Central America on their blog, Nowhere Soon. The writing is insightful and humourous at the same time and the podcasts are pretty good too. As you can see from the photo, they’re both resourceful folks, having fashioned their own panniers out of buckets!
