Ride & Glide

“I am an overweight, unfit, 50 year old Occupational Therapist, ex-teacher and gliderpilot. For my 50th birthday I decided I would embark on a series of journies that would see me visiting every gliding club on the planet.”

“I am about to embark on the first stage of the journey, a ride from Germany down through to South Africa. I am hoping to raise funds for charities connected with assisting disabled people. More details on www.rideandglide.co.uk - find out why I chose a bicycle over a motorcycle for the journey.”

“One bit of advice – hills are great on a fully loaded touring bike ……. when going down them!”

“When I was 10 years old I cycled from Prestwick in Scotland back home to Newcastle, England with my Dad. They were fantastic memories which I never forgot.”

“Now age 47, with a re-discovered passion for cycle touring. I’m taking 6 months (possibly longer!) to travel around Europe on my own. Starting at the end of May 2012, I’m spending 3 weeks in the Netherlands, then heading to Arnhem to pick up the R1 Euro route to Berlin. From there it’s the River Salle cycle route through Germany, the River Main cycle route to the Rhine and the Glan-blies cycle route to France.”

“Then I’ll head to the coast for Euro Velo 8 to Cadiz in Spain, straight up the centre of Spain and France before finally arriving back home in Newcastle upon Tyne in the UK.”

“I have breathed the air since 1963. Although I have lived some days on this planet, I still do not have always a clear vision about my life! Regardless, hiking at home and around the world on foot as backpacker or by bicycle is one of my permanent life values, as is photography. In 2008 I decided to make my first long trip on a bicycle: a 72-day solo trip through Turkey and Persia. It was one of the most powerful experiences I had.”

“I am from Malaysia, and love to cycle tour. The photo here is from my trip to Koh Samui, Thailand. Actually, this was my first trial in cycle touring and i love it. Since my state (Perlis) borders with Thailand, it’s easy for me to ride in Thailand instead of touring in Malaysia. It’s a peaceful ride in Thailand and I don’t usually take the normal road but try to use small roads through the villages. For this year (2011), I plan to ride all over Malaysia in December. Happy cranking to all.”
