Keith Hallagan

Keith Hallagan is on the bike tour of a lifetime, which you can read about in his online journal. He didn’t discover bike touring until his 30s.

“Once on the saddle I was hooked and realised I had a lot of making up to do. So after finishing building my house – that i could at last truly call my own – having spent so much time, money and effort decorating it, I closed the door, sold it (or so I thought), quit my job and jumped on my saddle for an adventure of a lifetime through Eurasia – Europe, the middle East, Central Asia and the legendary Karakorum Highway on a journey of a lifetime that i’m in no rush to forget about,” says Keith.

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, MoroccoKyrgyzstan, 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.”
