Bike trip

In March 2018 I set off from Amsterdam on a bike trip to the Great Wall of China around the world. While I don't have a blog, facebook page or twitter feed I am carrying along a gps tracker that updates my position on the map  and a small camera.

The route

The first leg of my trip has involved pedalling the length of the Eurasian landmass. Along the way I crossed the Alps, the vast and awesome Karakalpakstan steppe, and the Pamir highway.

For the second leg of my trip I plan to cycle across Australasia, from Perth in the west to Cape Reinga in the east. Anticipation is half the fun, and in my mind I'm already enjoying gazing at the stars over the Nullarbor plain and taking a dip in a New Zealand hot spring.

After that, I haven't a set plan. The American continent seems like the next logical step although I haven't looked into routes in any great detail yet.

How about skipping bits?

Not if I can help it. I can't ride my bicycle across the oceans so that means taking boats or aeroplanes. When I'm on land I want to cover every millimetre by bicycle. These are the exceptions:


For curious bike and camping gear nerds, here's a detailed list of the stuff I'm carrrying along with me.
