“Q.What is it about human-powered travel that captures your imagination?
A. It is hard. You earn the miles. It is slow. You experience the world. You appreciate the scale and diversity of the planet. You learn more about yourself. You are immersed in the situation. Anyone can drive/motorbike round the world. It takes a bit of oomph (mental more than physical) to do it by bicycle.”
“Q.Name one thing you can’t live without.
A. Good books to read. Occasional bursts of wilderness.”
