If I remember rightly Ab, you took some great photos while biking the Continental Divide, so I’m looking forward to seeing the pictures from your upcoming Utah trip. I didn’t download your route via rapidshare since my internet connection has a low data transfer limit but seeing the photos you poste...

Thanks to Tom Allen who is February’s guest photographer.

On our “Bicycling around the world” blog we have also began placing bicycle touring photography tips.

Groetjes,

You need to take an airplane to enter and leave Myanmar but you can cycle in certain areas inside of the country. Still just to be able to cycle around the temple city of Bagan – that’s worth the effort of flying into Myanmar. We were there in 2001 and now we’re considering going back again. http://...
In December we started a new category in our blog; Guest photographer. The guest photographer’s picture is an inspirational image that visualizes what so great is about bicycle touring. In December we showcased one of Peter Gostelow’s pictures and January a Tibet photo from Nathalie Pellegrinelli. I...
Shane thanks for the tips! I have also seen some photos from a Thai girl who cycled the Mae Hong Son loop– there is some really beautiful scenery on that route. Once we reach Luang Prabhang in Laos - we’ll decide if we go back for a short cycling loop in Northern Thailand or just continue on towards...
That’s great to hear that Laos has discovered bikes (and pinautomaten!) Here in Thailand, motorbikes rule the roads. We’re heading towards Laos, but we might also take the boat from Pakbeng back to Chiang Khong, Thailand (near Chiang Rai) and cycle a loop in Northern Thailand. I see that you have a ...
We just finished cycling in Cambodia and are now heading up towards Laos. We know that Laos has a lot of hills but are there “local cyclists” in the towns and flat sections since we are hoping to photograph them…

Hi Ed en Myrthe, We don’t have the guidebook but I just wanted to say that in some of the road sections between Portland Oregon and Los Angeles California - the coastal road is very narrow and there is no shoulder. Since you will probably be towing a trailer with your two kids in it – try to find ou...
I see that you have already received some excellent suggestions for routes in the above entries, so good luck in planning your final route! My suggestion is about cycling into Seattle. One of the best ways to enter Seattle is via the ferry system, that way you don’t have to cycle through the urban/i...

Hi Dennis & Marijcke,

Your Madagascar photos really show what it’s like to cycle there and portray the “atmosphere” of the country!
Hi Wereldfietsers, We are now in Bangkok and have just started a multi-year bicycle/photography trip titled; “Bicycling around the world in search of inspiring cycle images”. You can read about the project here: About Paul Jeurissen Bicycle Photography and follow the trip on our new blog: http://www...
Hi Johan & Gerda, We are also fans of planning our route from day to day while cycling, yet we also research the countries before we head off on a trip. We are now in Bangkok - and beforehand I read a number of cycling travelogues on Southeast Asia. We had cycled a number of times previously in S.E....
Hello Martijn and Lasse, First of all, I’m happy to read that you both enjoyed the photos. As for Martijn’s questions: what time of year did you go? We went in October. cycled in long trousers as appropriate for local people? Long trousers are more appropriate (I wear bicycle shorts underneath my tr...
Last year we went for our first time – cycling in Morocco. As many wereldfietsers already know – it’s a beautiful country! We went from Marrakech – over the Atlas Mountains out towards the Sahara, and also up the Dades river valley. We really enjoyed the trip and hope to return to Morocco in the fut...

Earlier this year the Travelling two did a podcast interview with Heinz Stücke. I was curious to hear what Heinz had to say on different subjects but unfortunately I had a very difficult time trying to understand Heinz. Now one of Travelling Two’s reader’s has typed out the whole interview. Personal...
Wat kleding betreft: als vrouw niet in een strakke fietsbroek gaan rondrijden Peter is right on this one! Personally I wear full length pants. http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4097/4818600604_1605638abf.jpg het verkeer valt in het zuiden eigenlijk best mee als je de kleinere wegen rijdt, zoals aangeg...
Hi Paul, Sounds like a great trip! Your 28” wheels and Schwalbe marathon+ tires are fine for the route that you want to bicycle. As for not wanting to bring an extra tire – it probably won’t be a problem, but it’s a risk that only you can decide to take. Some websites on cycling in Nepal: Wereldfiet...
Thanks for posting this info., I'm looking forward to watching the Ride the Divide film.
