In this episode of Bike Tour Adventures, I am speaking with Eva and Mari after they have cycled from Holland to China and beyond. After more than a year on the road, these two ladies have cycled through 22 countries and pedalled over 24,000 km (15,000 miles). In today’s interview, we will find out all about their motivations to travel, how they prepared for this tour, and talk about their dreams and aspirations. 

Cheers. Keep on pedalling.

Traveller. Cyclist. Expat. Over 15 years experience living abroad in six different countries. I've travelled to over 40+ countries and met countless travellers, cyclists, and other expats. As a passionate cyclist I've had opportunities to bike tour in some truly amazing places. While definitely not an expert at bike touring, I'm passionate about sharing bike touring stories and helping others learn hacks, tricks, and techniques to improve their touring experience. I look forward to you joining me on this journey of learning about and becoming a better bike tourist.
