In a @globalcyclingnetwork episode on bikepacking, @joshibbett and @si_richardsongcn told me one has to have a mug dangling off the seat bag in order to be part of the cool kids club. And who am I to disagree.
Sadly, GCN had sold out of their branded enamel mugs (why guys, why?!) when I was getting all my gear together and so I opted for a @unitedbyblue one which I found at my local @rei store. I am really liking it so far, so much so in fact, that I backtracked for about ten minutes on the ride through Whanganui National Park to find it again. The buckle had opened and the mug fell right on the trail, thankfully easy to spot. I am considering naming him Wilson.
I met fellow bike tourers Basia and Paweł (@2findthepath ), from Poland 🇵🇱 , in the common kitchen area at a campground in Martinborough. They shared stories and experiences from their trip so far, which they started in Australia in October. From Sydney, they flew to New Zealand and they are now making their way north on the North Island.
In mid-March they will travel to Singapore for more extensive touring in Asia.
They regularly update a blog, documenting their experiences and also trying to generate some form of income to support their adventure. A great first step in this direction will be the publication of one of their articles in a polish bike touring magazine later this year.
Good luck to you guys and it was a pleasure meeting you!
“hey Michel, do you remember me? Well you drove me and my friend to the lady Gaga concert 8months ago and I just loved your car. I would like you to be my driver for my wedding if you’re available”...........THAT was the message I received from @sarahpsmart .
I was honored when I was asked to be part of her special day. She could have asked anyone or booked a limo like most do but she chose my crazy fun PartyRyde. It was my pleasure to make her special day a memorable one.
Thanks again Sarah! 🎊 .
