Craig and I thoroughly enjoyed watching this video from OPE! Cycling showing an attempt to ride a century on city streets without backtracking while maximizing new roads. There are so many classic Wandrer-ing moments captured here – unexpected no trespassing signs, climbing over fences, paths that are on the map but disappear into a huge pile of weeds, dead ends at a river.
This video is super inspiring (we’d like to host an event to attempt a similar ride on Atlanta’s streets) and great fun to watch. Thanks for the feature, Ope!
We had a wonderful time on our bike touring adventure in Taiwan with our little 4-6 month old baby. Our confidence to try touring was very much inspired by two mini-guidebooks (Cycle Touring with a Baby/Toddler, Cycle Touring with Two Young Kids) written by Maya and Gili on the Life in MAGIc Land blog. Since we learned so much from them, I wanted to share our thoughts here, in case they can be of interest/use to others.
Craig and I have very much enjoyed learning more about winter cycling from Wandrer Pekka Tahkola, an urban planner and well-being engineer who lives in Oulu, Finland. We recommend following him on social media (Instagram / Twitter / YouTube). Oulu is the the winter cycling capital of the world and this BBC News short video and Pekka’s head-to-head Winter Safe Cycling Showdown make it clear why.
