Ok, so here is my resurrected blog from my 2005 tour from Kentucky to Wyoming.

I've taken every post I made on that tour and put them into a new blog so you can read them straight through. I'll upload pictures from the tour but I probably ought to get some work done first.

Here you go:

here is the link to my blog about this trip:

and this is the link to my new blog, that will be about my future travels from perth, western australia to sapporo, japan, from prudhoe bay, alaska to ushuaia, argentina and maybe from cape town, south africa to cairo, egypt:

these two blogs are in french and english, the only problem for english speakers is the interface is in french...

i am now in perth to earn some money to keep on riding my bike. i think i'll be here until september 2008 where i'll leave to go to my trip to japan through asia.

Just getting off the C&O, starting the GAP. Presently raining, should improve later though. Internet access has been spotty, we have been lagging a day or three lately on our blog.

I don't have a blog or webpage about my tour this year, just a bunch of photos. I'll be adding more once i get them edited, 40 pics online as I type this, will probably be twice that when done.

Edit, the photos are from Finland, Sweden and Denmark

Pedaling to the Pits:Biking to the Bellybutton of Six Continents

Hello, Bike Forum Folk

I'm new the site, and like what I see coming from cycle tourists from all points. Here's my story: starting in 1996, I worked for Discovery Channel Online, making the first online cycle trip from Darwin to Lake Eyre, Australia. The tecnology was all Discoverys, but the stories are mine, and over the next six years I completed my tours of the lowest point on six continents - places like the Dead Sea and Death Valley. This summer, Sierra Club Books published my account of the journeys, Into Thick Air, and I've been promoting the book via a book tour, and now Bike Forum. You can check out one cyclist's opinion of the book at, but you'll have to scroll down to find it. The GreenGlobetrotter gave me a review, too: Natually, I've a website,, where you can link to photos from the trips.

The book is not so much about my bike as the pleasure of being outside, on a bike, and free to go where I like and camp where I please. That's why I ride. But I'm happy to field questions on bike touring, especially for those considering a ride to far-away deserts where the info is might scant. Just drop me a line at

I started a blog last year to encourage newbies to tour and commute by bike, and recruit companions for a trip around the Mediterranean that keeps getting postponed. Most of the recent posts are journal entries from a tour of southern Italy I did a few years ago--and just got around to posting the stories, tips, route notes and photos:

just finished my first tour, cross-country from Maine to Oregon. One thing that we really liked in the area of blogging was to have an updated google map embedded in our site (maybe I'm not telling you all anything new). I would call my fiance and give her our location every night and she would update it. Everyone back home absolutely loved following us with it. It also made it not so critical for us to find ways to update our blog as often. anyway, hope you enjoy the site.
