Things you need :

  • A LOT of motivation and good will :)
  • A bike
  • A helmet
  • 1 or 2 spare tubes
  • A sleeping bag (not to big if possible)
  • Some clothes (short, t-shirt, rain-jacket for the day. Pants, t-shirt, hoodie for the evening. Light towel. Swimsuit)
  • A backpack to carry your clothes & sleeping bag. Or better yet, a way to attach it to your bike rack - if you have one.

Things you don't necessarily need (but nice to have) :

  • A tent (I have one, we just need 2 or 3 more)
  • Bike paniers (I'll carry most of the stuff and only ask one or 2 other persons to carry the rest)

Things I'll take care of :

  • The route & logistic along the way
  • Accommodation (finding legit camping spots - with bathrooms & showers)
  • The food and "cooking"
  • Bike repair equipment
  • Answering all your travel/bike/camping related questions :)

Things we'll think about on the way :

  • Places to visit
  • Activities to do in the evening
  • Meaning of life

One thing you should be aware of :

- It's going to be hard !

Travelling every day - especially on a bike - is challenging.
The combination of physical fatigue, butt pain, homelessness and being at the mercy of the weather requires a whole lot of mental strength.
But trust me, it is a really rewarding experience.

I'll organise a get-together event before we go so we can get to know each other and you can ask all the questions I didn't answer here.

Looking forward to it !
