The Next Adventure: Cycle Trekkers

Canada was amazing! Vancouver was amazing! But, for now, we are back in Sunny Perth, planning the next adventure.

Since we finished the France to China cycle tour last year, we have been itching to get back on the bikes and hit the road again. We have definitely come to realise that cycle touring is one of the best ways to explore a country. It puts you out there, right in the country, with the locals.

First we had planned to cycle across Canada, then this turned into a cycle trip across Canada and across the USA, which then turned into Canada, the USA and Mexico. Well, we finally decided, ‘screw it’ let’s just cycle around the world. So, next year, we plan to head back to Vancouver in Canada, to start our World cycle tour.

We want to take our time this time, no time restrictions, less restraints. We want to be able to explore the countries we visit, and stop when we feel the need to stop. For this reason we are planning the trip to take at least 5 years, maybe longer. Obviously, this is going to require a lot of money (hence the trip back to Oz). We also expect we will need to work along the way, which isn’t a problem at all. We’ve posted our proposed route on our new website – if you think you might be in an area the same time as us, or that our paths might cross somewhere along the way, then get in touch. You can reach us at info@cycletrekkers.com

While we are cycling, we decided we would also do some research into our future dream, owning a hostel. This has been Michael’s dream for sometime, as for me, I’ve always wanted to own an eco-tourism business. We thought we could combine the two ideas and create a eco-hostel. So along the way, we will be researching different green businesses and hostels, to discover what works and what doesn’t work. We will be sharing this information on our new website, Cycle Trekkers, as well as sharing general cycle touring info, updates and reviews. I will still be posting travel and general stories on this site too (though admittedly I’ve been pretty slack lately) 🙂

Anyway, that’s our latest news! If you would like to share any tips, or get in touch then drop us a line, or comment in the comment box below.

Ciao for now xx
