4 Years on the Road

In this episode of Bike Tour Adventures, I have the opportunity to connect with Anisa Subekti, a Indonesian adventurer that in July of 2017 started on a new chapter of her life by embarking on a bike tour that has taken her all over South America and into Africa. After nearly 4 years, Anyisa is still going strong. In today’s episode we are going to talk about the places she’s travelled, her bike and setup, and what challenges there are as a female non-native English speaking bike tourer.

Cheers . Keep on pedalling.
