Vuelta de Vasco
We were looking for a bikepacking route around europe so we could spend about a week’s holidays. We were looking through bikepacking.com and we the Vuelta de Vasco really looked like a good option. Good food, cycling, beach and the mountains.
Patagonia Southern Carretera Austral
It’s on the bucket list of every long distance cyclist: The Carretera Austral. After what we had read, we expected some amazing scenery, but nothing could have prepared us for what we experienced every single day. Snow-peaked mountains, lakes and rivers that were shades of blue and green you could not capture in pictures, waterfalls, long dirt trails, wild camping with postcard views, and the night’s sky so vivid you could see the milky way. Take home message: schedule time in your day to pause and take in the surroundings.
In the middle of the Eberswalde Forest
After coming back to Berlin from Portugal where we made a short summer cycling tour, we had big plans to use most of the remaining Autumn weekends to enjoy the last of the sunlight in Berlin. Unfortunately, we both got sick and in some way or another, life got in the way. On a cold November Saturday we decided to use the last available Autumn light to face the 0 degree temperatures and go for a short wild camping trip overnight somewhere in the Eberswalde forest.
Tasmania Northeastern Coast
Since we were travelling to Australia in May 2018, we looked for a few recommended bikepacking/touring routes down under. We initially looked at Attack of The Buns but since we were flying into Brisbane (Michelle’s family is from there) the logistics of this route were complicated and the time of the year was not the best. We then started looking Tasmanian Trail but we would need bikes with bigger tires and we were trying to avoid taking our bikes. Also, the recommended 10 days for the trail was a bit too long for the time we had in Australia. So, in the end we decided to cycle from Launceston down to Hobart, going North to South to try and avoid northerly head winds. From what we researched, we would have quiet tarmac roads, stunning scenery and a fairly chilly weather for our trip, but cycling trips never go completely according to plan…
