The ride along the eastern coastline north of Campbeltown is amazing, though hilly at times. We pitched our tent just next to the Arran ferry at the beach near Claonaig. I hadn’t heard about the isle before but it looked inviting. The water was also inviting and we didn’t mind the cold temperature too much. […]

i left xela after five weeks and felt like it is a place i might come back to one day. it was a wonderful day to start cycling again. the sun was shining in a clear blue sky and while i was climbing the mountains surrounding the lake along the panamericana, some views could be […]

volcan santa maria

after thinking about to join the tour of the guesthouse, i decided to do it by bicycle myself and my own pace as the tour included two other sights and a rather tight schedule. if i had known the road would be as challenging as within the last days, i might have opted for the […]

tulum

i made a stop at a bicycle shop before leaving town. everything took a little longer and so it was past noon when i left cancun. the heat was only sometimes mellowed by a passing cloud. but once you start to ride, the breeze takes of the edge. it wasn’t a pleasant ride along the […]

hakataramea pass

April 25th, 2012 · No Comments

i had a light start into the day until the turnoff for the hakataramea pass at kurow. it was perfect cycling weather with enough clouds to cool down the temperature in an otherwise blue sky. the hakataramea pass was another recommendation from bob, the guy we stayed with at the buller gorge. a quiet gravel […]

arthur’s pass

January 6th, 2012 · No Comments

i wanted to get into the mountains again and cycling over the arthur’s pass to the west coast seemed like the quickest way to get that. the first day i just cycled outside the city in more or less the same weather as on the day i arrived, but the next day was perfect. sunny […]
