I set off from my home in the north of England in September with a view to hopefully do a lap of the world! I cycled for a few weeks with a friend but have been alone for the past 2-3 months! I cycled through England, France, Spain and Portugal and am taking a few weeks off the bike in Barcelona teaching children English and I am looking to set off again at the beginning of February heading east!
I plan to catch a ferry to the south of Italy and cycle a while in Italy to wait out the cold weather a little ☺️ before heading east towards Istanbul and somehow/some way which I haven't quite worked out yet cycle across Asia and eventually end up in Australia! I don't like to plan too much as its good to be flexible and circumstances can change easily!
I am 30 years old and while I like cycling alone I think I would love to cycle parts of my journey with other like minded people or even a group of people would be cool...especially in countries with a less familiar culture than I am used to and with the language barrier it would be great to have people to speak with and work things out together! I don't care how old you are, what gender you are, where you are from or any other labels society has thrown at you! I would like to cycle with people who are easy going, determined, open minded and up for a laugh!
I generally cover 80-100 km per day and take days off usually based on how I feel/where I am and if I'd like to spend a little more time in that area! I try to keep to as small a budget as possible, spend most nights either in the tent or warm showers host etc! I love to be in the mountains and try to avoid cities generally...I love outdoor activities but also like to meet new people and socialise! To be honest I'm learning everyday and the more I learn the more I find out I don't know �
If anyone is interested in cycling a while with me then it would be really great to hear from you! Either reply to this thread or send me a private message to find out more about me!
I look forward to hearing from you ☺️
