Outback and Beyond. Albany to Adelaide

A journey in its own right, the last two weeks have been unforgettable - 2500 cold kilometers heading eastwards across the Australian outback. The supposed westerly tailwinds turned out to be quite the opposite, yet, the journey from Albany to Adelaide gave me much more than I had ever anticipated. Yes, I spent many nights … Continue reading Outback and Beyond. Albany to Adelaide

Hey Hey WA

Pushing a trolley holding a giant cardboard box into Singapore International airport, I immediately drew more than a few odds looks. Anything unusual in airports seem to gather far more attention than anywhere else, and today, me and my bike were to be the unusual thing. Nobody seemed to pay any attention to the giant … Continue reading Hey Hey WA

From Krabi to KL

Krabi is a dive of a destination. After a day supposed rest there, we were more than keen to be on our way out. For myself, Molly and Haydn, the south Thai roads were beckoning, and although there was to be no coastal riding until Malaysia, anything would be better than the bed-bug infested hostel … Continue reading From Krabi to KL

Less Riding, more Luminous Plankton

Phnom Penh is a strange place. Hulking metal high rise buildings flanked by fleets of busy cranes; all encircled by valet parking spaces full of luxury German cars. The Cambodia of just 10km’s in any direction may well be on another continent - relegated to history books where young children point and laugh in disbelief … Continue reading Less Riding, more Luminous Plankton

A New Year & Anniversary

It was a different Luang Prabang to the one I’d left just over two weeks ago. Then I’d driven to the airport on a motorbike with my friend, Angelique, riding pillion before waving goodbye as I boarded a flight to see my parents for Christmas in Hanoi. Having cycled seriously hard over the preceding weeks … Continue reading A New Year & Anniversary

Ultra Across Myanmar…?

If there’s something I’ve learnt on this trip, it’s that time is an undervalued commodity. One of the real virtues of travelling by bike is the sheer amount of it you have to yourself. For some I’m sure that screams solitary torture, but if you’re the kind of person that fancies cycling around the world, … Continue reading Ultra Across Myanmar…?

It’s been a while…

I am still alive. I am still cycling. Apologies for leaving it so very long before updating this page, there is a lot to tell and now hopefully time to tell it. My last update was from north-west India, 6 weeks ago, which really is an age when it feels like a sensory kitchen sink … Continue reading It’s been a while…

Heaven or Hell

My initial days in India continued as I had left off – badly. I took a taxi across the city with my bike to find that, despite the website still selling bus tickets to Manali, a massive storm had triggered some huge landslides, cutting off the town and making travel impossible. My taxi driver worked … Continue reading Heaven or Hell

Cycling into Shangri-La

If two bordering countries truly presented a cultural ying and yang, it would be China and Pakistan. One country forced us onto a bus to cross the border, the residents of the other cheered us over the line into the new land. Voicing all our thoughts at the back of the bus were a group … Continue reading Cycling into Shangri-La

New Article for Prendas Ciclismo

If you ever catch me riding a bike, I'll be wearing a cotton cycling cap. I bought my first one five years ago and have worn them religiously ever since. Over my time touring, a nice little story unfolded so I decided to write it up and send it to the guys who make all … Continue reading New Article for Prendas Ciclismo
