After a little sightseeing, indulgence and a wash in Paris, we hit the road headed north
Good morning! Rolling down to Ouarzazate, the Hollywood of Morocco for a little indulgence
Amazing cycling in the High Atlas. Snaked roads over the Col du Tichka, our highest point in Morocco.
Cheeky wash in the mountain stream….
The foothills of the High Atlas Mountains, Morocco.
Hello Morocco! Beautiful people, open roads. Last 30km into Marrakech we were joined by a couple of local cyclists. Feeling very welcome ❤️
The headwinds have been relentless – we’re struggling to maintain 14km / hour let alone our typical 20.
Don’t remember why we were so drawn to concrete slabs!? Another day up the road toward Mauritania.
Bike for a horse and cart, what do you reckon? This guy came by to say g’day while we were enjoying dinner on our fine concrete slab.
A fine slab-a-cement to graze on while enjoying the Senegal sunset. Tracking north out of Dakar we’re headed for Mauritania.
Scroll right to see what happens when you get this wrong! We’ll just ride our bikes thanks 😮
Arriving in Senegal was a trip! We landed after dark. The airport was chaotic.
We took a little nature break and now we’re back. How stunning are the coastal forests between Sao Paulo and Rio!?
From Sao Paulo to this 😃 Thank you @stancortes for connecting us with Danilo, Ana and their family. What beautiful humans amongst a stunning part of Brazil.
Sao Paulo!!!!! What an amazing place full of beautiful people. We can’t thank @reichelsch enough
After a few nights of cheeky camping, we rolled into Sao Francisco do Sul and stayed in a hotel.
How good is this scenery!! Beautiful riding northbound from Tartaruga. We had a couple of casualties today
Finding camp has been tough. It seems there’s no public greenbelts along the coast and the campground we were aiming for was well and truly locked up.
Training advice from Ironman World Champion Pete Jacobs – not what we expected!
Our route from Porto Alegre tracks along the coastline to Rio. Day 1 we made it to Santo Antonio and then set a course toward Florianopolis.
Bikepacking advice from a world kayak champion!? John Jacoby is a legend on the adventure racing scene and we were stoked to get his words of wisdom before departing Australia in this epic adventure
🇧🇷Porto Alegre, Brazil, is where the pedalling begins and it’s a long ✈️ from Nevis > Miami > Lima > Porto Alegre but when we get there we’re rolling out on the route crafted by our dear friend @stancortes. We’re sure it won’t disappoint!
Proper living-on-a-bike luggage here. For half a year this was our every––thing. What would you add?
Nevis holds a very special place in @kristina._rivers ♥️
Rob Eva and Paul Larkin were the brains behind our take-on-anything world bikes. We can’t thank them enough for sharing their passion and generosity in bringing this project to life.
The first day of the women’s world record. It might have taken us 10 years to share the journey but we’re very excited to relive it with you.
