Chameleon encounter

Cycling Africa Solo

I always recommend people keep their stories short and sweet. Here is the shortest and sweetest so far. Congratulations on taking life into your own hands.


My first bicycle tour in India

Here is a a resourceful microadventure in India by bicycle. I like the reference to a “A philosophical experience”.




A 400-mile detour in Bolivia

This is an excerpt from Changing Gears: A Family Odyssey to the End of the World by Nancy Sathre-Vogel. Together with her husband and children, Nancy rode her bicycle from Alaska to Argentina. Changing Gears is her travel memoir from her time on the road.


Falling Uphill in Paraguay with the Peace Corps

Scott Stoll is an author from my hometown who served as the U.S. Embassy’s cultural ambassador in Argentina during the 2011-2012 school year. His time in Argentina and collaboration with Argentine schools resulted in a Spanish language version of his book, Falling Uphill: The Secret of Life, about his 4 year journey around the world on his bicycle.


Reflections on a Self-Propelled Summer

With winter weather the current reality it is a natural time to reflect on the past summer and it’s warmth. My past summer was spent walking across the US on the Pacific Crest Trail, a 2660-mile footpath from Mexico to Canada.


Challenging Oneself

This recent guest post arrived just days ahead of a news story about Lance Armstrong full of controversy, upset and — maybe — inspiration.


Spirit of Adventure

The following was contributed by Frosty Wooldridge. It is one of his “Spirit of Adventure” bicycle greeting cards.




Along the Mekong

There is no better way to explore a country than by bicycle. And if you’re going to be cycling the length of a country, why not do it for charity?


Team expedition rows to the North Pole

British explorer Jock Wishart and Old Pulteney Single Malt Scotch Whisky have unveiled a remarkable mission to conquer what could be one of the world’s last great “firsts” — the first rowing attempt to one of the world’s Poles.


Be the change you want to see in the world.
