“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 :)”

Stuart and Katja cycled through Kyrgyzstan.

“Traveling by bike meant that it was so much easier to get in contact with local people. Kids would come running from their yurts just to shake our hands or have their picture taken,” they say.

Next, they’re planning to go bike touring in New Zealand and to cycle from Lhasa to Kathmandu.
