World Biking Image Wall In 2006 when we set off to cycle to Cape Town, we NEVER EVER imagined still being on the road 8 years and 150,000 kilometers later. Spend some time browsing through the images below and the same thing might just happen to you! Keep scrolling down to reveal pictures from the [...]

Almost six months ago we rolled off the Pelni from Malaysia and set out to circumnavigate Sulawesi. We survived that (but just barely) and went on to bike the length of Java (which turned out to be much better than expected). After my whirlwind trip to Montana and Eric’s stay in Jakarta (which is a [...]
A little to the left, a slight move to the right, a minor change of saddle angle…nothing stopped the bolts of pain in my underside as we bumped along Sumatra’s backroads. Turns out we still have a few things to learn about bike touring. Here’s our latest lesson learned: [...]
This is a guest post from the Cycling El Mundo team, Amanda Zeisset and Antonio Cala. #1 To Meet Mexicans Family, above all, is the most important aspect of Mexican culture. Perhaps this is why they so easily share their homes, food, time and culture with travelers. If you spend enough time [...]
As we crested the summit, a gust of wind brushed away a thick tangle of clouds and our eyes fell upon a spectacular sight: Mount Merapi, Indonesia’s most active volcano. Rising almost 3,000 meters (10,000 feet), “Fire Mountain” has been regularly erupting since 1548. The last major explosion goes back to 2010. Over 300 people [...]
It’s too touristy—you’ll be surrounded by hordes of cyclists and swarms of backpackers. 100% not true. Of course if you’re hungry for company, there’ll be no shortage of places to connect with fellow tourists. But if you’re in search of an ‘authentic’ experience, you’ll find it as soon as you slip of the banana pancake [...]
We made it (to our own great amazement)! A whopping 3,563 kilometers around just one of Indonesia’s 18,307 islands. In comparison, London to Istanbul measures 2,994 kilometers. Maine to Florida just 2,560 kilometers. So we’ve covered a lot of kilometers on Sulawesi. Most of them pretty painful. I figure we had 3 days of relatively [...]
The Indonesians, with a little monetary support from their Aussie neighbors, have embarked on a road building bonanza. Silky smooth tarmac roads soon will link most of the coastal settlements. This is a good thing. We love riding rough (maybe not as much as the Pikes on Bikes or Cass Gilbert, but we’re up for shakes [...]
