Many bicycle adventures start with a trip by plane, train, or automobile. In order to start your bicycle tour, you’ve got to get to the place where your tour will begin. And unless you are starting and ending from your home, getting there and coming back can be a great challenge.
I’ve recently departed on my 9th bicycle tour and I’d like to use this trip to show how I packed up my bike and the rest of my belongings and managed to get everything to an apartment building on the other side of the world where I will begin my next bicycle touring adventure.

I carried all 80+ pounds by myself and made it to my starting location without any real problems.
