“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.”

Harriet & Neil Pike

“In 2008 we were coming to the end of a 2 year backpacking trip in Asia, and were tiring of that form of travel.”

“We’d met plenty of cycle tourists in the Stans the year before, had liked the idea and decided to try it out with a cycle home to Oxford from Istanbul. The freedom and joy at being outside all day soon had us hooked on two-wheeled travel, so we headed to South America the following year and spent 19 months cycling on that beautiful continent. Out there we soon discovered that our favourite rides were on quiet roads in the mountains, well away from traffic and the big cities.”

“Stories from our trips are at Pikes On Bikes  and we’ve set up Andes By Bike, which has route information and maps of many of the small routes we cycled in the Andes.”

“I (Stephane) am a keen cyclist back home and although I had to use my negotiating skills to convince Angela to come along on this trip she is now loving it!”

Eleanor cycled 10,000 miles around China, Taiwan, and into Tibet – mostly solo – in 2011. She then ‘took a rest’ by traveling with a backpack and hitch-hiking/local buses through Xinjiang and into Kazakhstan. What’s up next? Check her blog for the latest updates: 2wheels4girls.com
