Bike. Camp. Cook. The Going Slowly Cookbook.

http://www.goingslowly.com

I’ve just discovered that Tara from Going Slowly, who was a major inspiration for our trip, has finished writing her cookbook: Bike. Camp. Cook. Reading about the meals she and Tyler shared on their 2-year bike odyssey convinced me that we could eat well while on the road. Please support their Kickstarter campaign, so I […]

Choose Your Own Adventure

6221 km so far. When you splurge for a hotel it is nice to stay in bed later than you normally would. I am not very good at sleeping in, though, so left Jane to it while I went and picked up a couple of pastries from a local bakery. Sadly, they were not as […]

Get The Balance Right

5568 km so far. Balance is the key to successful cycle touring. There’s the obvious kind of balance, of course. When you get that right, you can move swiftly forward at 25 kph or so. When you get it wrong? Well, I have the scars to show what happens then. Then there’s that other kind […]

Lazy Day In Tuja

4359 km so far. Remember how yesterday Stephen said that cities are so exhausting that we need a rest in the country just to recover? Well, this morning when I woke up, after having slept 10 hours, I really didn’t feel like biking anywhere. Plus, it was damp and miserable outside, with no signs of […]

A Break From The City

4359 km so far. We rode out of Rīga this morning and the wind was already howling around us. I was sad to go, as there is still much I wanted to see and do, but I know I will be back. Hopefully next time I will get to ride up to Kolka, spend a […]

Three Is Company Too

4247 km so far. As we were riding through yet another beautiful pine forest this morning we caught sight of a flash of red ahead. We both knew immediately what this meant. JY! Our new friend, Jean-Yves, was just ahead of us. Even though we had parted ways yesterday morning, we knew it was likely […]

Blowin’ In The Wind City

4083 km so far. Our big happy campground family kept us up late last night. There was a little covered picnic area right outside our tent that we had joked was where the party would be later. Turns out, it wasn’t a joke. A few campers decided it was a great night to stay up […]

Fantastic Four Thousand

4011 km so far. A walk on the beach of the Baltic Sea is a great way to start the day. The sand is silky soft and a beautiful white and the wind hasn’t yet had a chance to whip up. I had heard you can go out early and hunt for amber that has […]

Living La Vida Latvia

3945 km so far. First, note the distance above. Almost 4,000 km. That seems like a lot to me! Then look at a few pictures from last night’s camping. No Room Of One’s Own This morning we continued along the bike path we’ve been following since we got to the Baltic Sea. It’s a great […]

Waiting For Our Ship

3795 km so far. After breakfast surrounded by water lilies and lotus flowers, the waitress at the Hotel Kintai got me a coffee, which she wouldn’t let me pay for, and filled up our 4-gallon bladder with fresh water. Something In The Water Speaking of water, the last three places we’ve visited, with 100 km […]
