“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.”

“We have just completed our first cycle tour of 6684 kilometres; we started out on April 2, 2011 and got home on July 19, 2011. We travelled from our home in Malaga in the south of Spain up through France, up to the UK and to Nottingham where our families live.”

“We spent a week with friends and family and then set off back via Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, across to the south of France taking in a few alpine passes and Mont Ventoux as we went, eventually arriving back in Spain and back home to Malaga. The trip was a fantastic experience, from which we learned a lot – things we would do again and things we wouldn’t. I hope to undertake something similar in the not too distant future – just not sure where or when yet.”

You can read all about Julie’s Malaga to Nottingham bike tour, including a journal, facts and figures, highlights and observations.

“I tried cycle touring for the first time after reading a book by Josie Dew. I’ve always been a keen cyclist but never as a mode of travel. That was until I went on that first weekend. Now I don’t wish to go anywhere by any other means but my bike. My trips have mainly been a couple day adventures around Devon and Cornwall but I have just got back from my first 2 week tour in France and am planning for more already. My kit hasn’t even dried properly!”

“We are two high school friends (Rob on the left, Adie on the right) on a gap year. In the summer of 2011, we set off on our first bike tour: a two-month tour of France and Spain on bamboo fixed-gear bikes that we built ourselves. We have spent about a month training for our trip and making a lot of our own gear, such as our panniers and stove. This is our first bike tour.”

“We both love camping and cycling. For some reason it took some time for us to figure out that you could join them together and have much fun.”

“Our first tour was to Croatia and we really loved it. We went a couple of times to Wales as a warm up for our trip to New Zealand in 2010. In 2011, we are going to Denmark, France and a little tour of the UK, where we live. Our only problem now is where next, when and in what order? There are so many places to cycle tour.”
