Welcome to our website

Cycletourer logoThrough this site we hope to share some of the great times my wife and I have had cycle touring, and give some help and information to those who might consider cycle touring as an alternative type of holiday. Cycle touring with a tent is a great way to see and explore a country. Here are a few things to recommend it.

  • It's a relaxing way to see the country side, you tend to see and experience more of the country side from a bike than a car!
  • There's more chance to explore the countryside by taking quieter tracks and lanes.
  • You can go at your own pace, we have a brief idea of a route, but adjust it to how we feel and weather conditions.
  • If we find a place that we like, we often stay for a few days and explore before moving on.
  • It's not as expensive as some holidays. It's a healthy and environmentally friendly way to travel.
  • By staying on local campsites and tourist farms there is more chance of getting to know the local people and understanding their culture.

MarcoWe would like to feature a blog by Aurelie and Marco, a married couple currently undergoing a charity ride from Helsinki to Singapore.

'During this adventure we will raise awareness about the power of the bicycle. It’s an amazing and useful tool and we would like to show that it’s much more than just sporting equipment or an incredible miracle of engineering; in many parts of the world and for many people having access to a bicycle can make the difference between being socially segregated and being part of the community.'

Their aim is go to from Finland to Malaysia on their bikes.

'During this adventure we really want to show people that another way of travelling is possible and allows you to meet people and discover new places. And everything in a sustainable way !

But what we want to do above all is to share our deep belief that bicycles can help make this planet a little bit better. This is why we have decided to us our quest as a way to support 2 organisations.
