I felt like Robin Hood cycling through this large wooded area in eastern Romania. Every once and a while an old man or a small family would pass in a wagon pulled by horses and they would pause for a moment when they saw me. I’d smile and wave at them as I approached… and then they’d continue on their way, smiling to and talking to one another about the strange man they had just seen on a large red bicycle. I ended up camping in the woods that night and the next day cycled my way into the neighboring country of Moldova.
My goal as the "Bicycle Touring Pro" is to give you the confidence and inspiration you need to travel by bicycle anywhere in the world. I'm here to help you plan, prepare for, and execute your first bike tour and remove all the guesswork, wasted time and frustration that plagues so many first-time bicycle travelers.
