Looking Back: Drink Beer, And You’ll Be Alright

15,734 km so far. For your listening pleasure, Chris T-T, Drink Beer (from the album The 253). Turn it up loud as you read this blog post about some of the best beer in the world. HumanFish Brewing, Vrhnika, Slovenia Matthew Charlesworth is brewing the finest beer I had on my entire trip. In a […]

Breakfast And Beer

10,187 km so far. All you can eat breakfast is quite something. As a hungry cycle tourist I made the most of it this morning, having four breakfasts in 90 minutes. The coffee was syrupy and roasted beyond all enjoyment, and the orange juice was sickly sweet sugar water, but the mango juice was fresh, […]

Yoga Hat Trick

8,008 km so far. When I teach more then once in a day, the whole day becomes about yoga. There are usually a few hours between classes, which means with eating and travel time, there isn’t much left of the day. Usually, I would spend some time between classes practicing at whatever studio I’m teaching […]

Home Comforts In HK

8,008 km so far. Happy New Year! OK, now that that’s out of the way… I woke up craving pancakes. I think this is a natural response to many years of heading to the 101 Coffee Shop in LA for New Year’s brunch. I couldn’t find vegan pancakes in Hong Kong, but I did find […]

High Society

8,008 km so far. I taught my last two classes in Shanghai this afternoon at Karma Life Yoga’s Laoximen studio. It was bittersweet for me. I am really itching to get back on our bikes and travelling again, but I have also loved being on the mat every day, teaching students, and being immersed in […]

10 Yogis Walk Into A Bar

8,008 km so far. What happens when a bunch of yogis go out together? They talk about yoga, of course. Tonight was one of those nights. Fortunately we were at Dr. Beer, one of Shanghai’s hip brewery bars, and it is well set up for mingling, talking, and, naturally, drinking beer. Tonight, we talked a […]

Alcohol Is All Around

8,008 km so far. This morning we bid a bittersweet farewell to the retreat. Then we boarded the bullet train. Speeding through the countryside at 300+ km/h is not the kind of “go slowly” approach our bike trip is usually about, but the scenes outside the window seemed all too familiar. Smog-choked air, people tending […]

Into The Mist

7,451 km so far. Chongqing is a very hilly city full of overpasses, tunnels, and one-way streets. It seems to be built on an endless number of small peaks, and to get anywhere in the city you have to climb several leg-burning slopes. We had a long slow climb up and over a particular nasty, […]

Chinese Efficiency

This morning I put the kibosh on any more walking, at least until we reached the Forbidden City. It’s far too easy to get distracted on foot, and besides, my legs are tired from all the miles we’ve put in. In addition, the thick grey smog continues, so we don’t want to breathe any more […]

It’s Oktoberfest!

Do you know what happens when you’re in Germany in October (and late September, as it turns out)? That’s right. Oktoberfest! The world’s most famous place to drink very large beers. OK, so the real Oktoberfest happens in Munich, but that doesn’t stop the people of Berlin from gathering in Alexanderplatz to shiver in the […]
