Ryan Van Duzer

In this episode of the Bike Tour Adventures podcast, I sit down with Ryan Van Duzer. Ryan, better known as Duzer, has been creating video for over 15 years now, having established himself as an adventurer that shows the highs and lows of any adventure he is on. From working in the Peace Corps, producing travel shows and surviving a survival show, Ryan has grown his YouTube channel, Duzer TV, to more than 141,000 subscribers. With his motto Get Out There, Ryan is on a quest to motivate people to get off their couch and get active, no matter whether it is a micro-adventure or a massive odyssey. 

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.
