Adventurous journeys by bike

Plan your next bicycle tour with ease

Routes, rides and resources for long-distance bicycle journeys around the world


I guess you’re here to learn more about the art of bicycle travel. After more than a decade in the saddle, I’ve a few lessons from the road to share to help you get started on a cycling adventure of your own.

You’re in the right place.

In these posts, you’ll find everything you need to know about getting set up for a really big bike ride. I’ve written extensive travel journals about each of my cycle tours including my solo adventures. If you’re looking for stories about a multi-month tour of Europe or a long-distance bicycle tour across continents, or even a five-day coast-to-coast in the UK, we have it covered.

My Bikepacking 101 is a good place to start for those planning a first cycle tour. If you’re in the market for an awesome touring bike then don’t read about my Dawes Galaxy (it was discontinued in 2020). And you really should read about my bikepacking fails – so you can avoid these rookie mistakes.

You can follow us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter for all the latest from the road.

Tailwinds and tea! – James
