Namaste from a very sunny Rishikesh. Yoga capital of the world, home to the Beatles ashram and a great place to swim in mother Ganga. #incredibleindia #visitindia #indiabybike #royalenfield #streetphotographyindia #indiagram #storiesofindia #allindiapermit #indianroadtrip #lonelyplanetindia #india_undiscovered #travelindia #rishikesh #yogacapitaloftheworld #breathedeeply #hippieinhills #motherganga #ganges #yogaindia #omshantiom #omhariom #harekrishna #harerama #harekrishnahareom #beatlesashram #johnpaulgeorgeringo

Last week I climbed Snowdon with my old man. We started out up the Llanberis path, the longest, easiest trail by dint of parking in Llanberis and not having much more of a plan than to start early and to get to the top. Dad spent half the time complaining it was too easy and that he wanted a more rugged, challenging terrain. Just about halfway Dad was content that this trail was actually challenge enough and was in fact more difficult than the Pyg trail that he’d climbed a few months earlier. After the summit and a sandwich we began our descent. “I fancy a go at that ridge” says the old bean. So we follow the path up on to Crib Goch. A couple of young lads scramble down smiling. “You going back this way? It’s a bit dicey… good luck!” Two and a half hours later we’re safely down at Pen-Y-Pass, congratulating each other on a great adventure. We’d certainly tested our mettle clambering over the two intense ridges of Crib Goch. Lesson: respect the mountain. Easy is a relative statement. #fathersonbonding #qualitytimeinnature #cribgoch #llanberispath #walkingwitholdbean #climbsnowdon #neverjudgeaclimbbyitswellmarkedpath #scrambledownthemountain #bigtimebouldering #exploresnowdonia #lovewales #respectthemountain #getoutdoors #easyisarelativestatement #enjoyeverymoment #blesstheweather

Croatia ?? not a bad spot for a bit of sunbathing. The coastal road, the Adriatic Highway(E65), is a stunning route. Easy navigation (keep the sea on your right), beautiful scenery and easy camping (a free standing tent will be advantageous ⛺️ on the flat rocky areas). The chance to swim each morning, lunch and evening was a big draw when choosing a route towards Istanbul. Having cycled a more northerly path previously, this choice was a happy one. #adriaticcoast #adriatichighway #easymiles #sunseacycling #adventure #getoutdoors #europebybike #rideoftenridefar #cyclecroatia #e65 #kickbackandrelax

I loved cycling with this guy. Alan runs ultra-marathons. He taught me a lot about nutrition and refuelling on the bike. I shared with him the joy of cake and ice cream. We had a lot of fun racing along the Dalmatian Coast. Thank you, Alan, my brother. #racethedalmatian #cyclingcroatia #cakeandicecream #nutsandseeds #beardbrothers #biketravel #cyclebuddys #adventuretravel #rideoftenridefar

The Austrian Alps ?? sometimes it snows… I met Kyle in Saltzburg through the @warmshowers cycling hospitality website. We decided to ride together for a while. We came up through these snowy mountains after days of heavy rain in Bavaria. At a couple thousand metres altitude Obertraun was the first of three back to back climbs to put us into Slovenia ?? #threeyearsagotoday #saturdaysarefortheboys #snowcycling #biketravel #europebybike #austria #adventuretravel #rideoftenridefar #getoutdoors

Two years ago today I was having a delicious lunch with these lovelies… I’d just left Kathmandu by air because of the difficulty in obtaining a visa for Pakistan in India. I’d arrived in Almaty to a completely new environment – vastly different – to the chaos of Nepal and India. Kazakhstan was a whole new place in every way. The roads were massive, wide paved and organised in a grid system (a bit like USA). The food was quite a change too. From dhaal baat to manty in one sweet move. In this photo I’m traveling from Almaty towards Bishkek. I’d pulled up for a bite to eat and crossed path with these ladies that lunch. We shared some epic pantomime and I put to good use my newly inked magic letter. A beautiful moment and a very warm welcome to Central Asia. This day is my sister birthday too – happy birthday sis! #happybirthdaytoluce #almaty_insta #biketravel #womenofcentralasia #mantyforlunch #mantyforsupper #mantyforlife #mymainmanty #kazakhstanbybike #throwbackthursday #tbt #rideoftenridefar #freerideonthefreedomhighway

Three years ago today… cycling along the Neckar River in Germany ?? This is somewhere near to Heidelberg. I was just starting out on my little bike trip, full of excitement and anticipation. It was a really magical feeling to be out on the road with so much adventure ahead of me… This is a beautiful part of the world to ride a bike. Easy to visit from most places in Europe, lots of excellent cycling infrastructure and a fine river to swim in at the end of a long day. The next day after this was Fathers Day and some guys driving a tractor and trailer on some kind of booze cruise gifted me a beer and a bottle of wine. Typical of German hospitality for bike travellers. Splendid days. If you look closely at the bike, there’s a first edition @cycletourfest water bottle hitching a ride #biketravel #neckarriver #heidelberg #germany #adventure #travel #dankeschon #threeyearsago #whatatrip #startingout #reallybigbikeride #worldcycle #tbt #throwbackthursday
