“I didn’t even own a bike when I was 23 and decided I wanted to try bike touring. I borrowed one, bought the cheapest panniers I could find, took an overnight bus to my starting point and explored my home province of British Colombia for a month.”

“I was hooked after that and convinced a girlfriend of mine to buy a bike and join me for a 6 month trip down the U.S. west coast, the Baja peninsula, and then around Peru, Bolivia and Argentina.”

“The two of us did another trip through Kyrgyztan and Tajikistan where we ran into some very cold weather in the Pamir mountains! Generally, we love dirt roads, high mountains and getting away from civilization on our bikes. We’re trying out a change of pace this fall, though, with a tour around sunny, warm Cuba :)”

Blanche & Douwe

“Bicycles are like dreams, and we are pedalling them!”

That’s how Douwe & Blanche, two Dutch cyclists who’ve been to Cuba, all over Europe and Morocco several times, introduce themselves. They say there’s no better way to see the world than from the seat of a bicycle.

“After travelling a great part of the world by public transport , we got frustrated. Passing all those beautiful stretches at a speed of 80 km an hour feels a bit stupid. So we looked for a better way to travel and there it was.. the bicycle!!”

“Since then the cycling bug got us. This is the way to get as nearest as possible to all facets of the country you’re visiting. On our website you can watch the videos we made from our trips. Enjoy and get inspired!”
