A year on a bicycle …
South America, 6 months
The first part of our trip will take us on the old Inca trail, from Quito the capital of Ecuador to Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world. Along the Andes we will cycle through Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina and Chile.
Central Asia, 8 months
For the second half of our journey we will head East along the old Silk Road and in the footsteps of Marco Polo, from Ankara to Delhi: Turkey, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kirghizstan, Xinjiang, Pakistan and India.
… but on a recumbent !
We chose to travel by bicycle since we think we cannot travel “well” and “fast”. It takes time to immerse in another culture and country. Cycling makes us accessible and enables us to travel as close as possible to the local people. For more comfort, we will ride recumbent bicycles. We tested Azub recumbents last year on a 170km ride and were fully satisfied.
