Bristol to New Zealand by Tandem

Not everyone likes travelling, not everyone likes cycling. We love both.

After several years of cycle touring during the few weeks annual leave that we are given by our employers each year we are now looking to take our passion for travelling on two wheels a bit further, in every sense.

It’s a daunting prospect to leave the familiarity of our home, families, friends and jobs, but at the same time it’s too exciting a prospect not to go. We are very fortunate to be able to do this and the time is right so we’re going to grab the opportunity and set off to explore new countries and experience new cultures.

The plan is rough and flexible but should see us riding our tandem through Scandinavia, the Baltic States, Eastern Europe, Turkey, Iran, the Stans, India, Nepal, South East Asia, China, South Korea, Japan, Australia and finally ending up in New Zealand. Over the course of a journey of that length plenty of things can and will happen that will influence where we go, so we’ll have to wait and see how the final route looks.

  2. I’m really quite jealous – you’ll have a blast. I do feel sorry for Kirsty though having to look at Marcus’ ass for the next 2 years.
