My name is Jonathan (or JKB).
I’m half English, half Danish. Born and raised in London.
I turned 23 on this trip.
I have no prior experience of cycle touring. Like, literally nothing. I’d never pedaled further than about 10km before leaving home. The first day of this tour was the first time I’d ever tried to ride my bike with all the bags on.
I still know nothing about bicycles or camping and I’m pretty useless at reading maps.
But that’s what makes it fun! Everyday is a learning curve, and here I share some thoughts as I discover both the world and a new lifestyle ‘in the saddle’.
Some people plan a trip like this for years, but I’m pretty much just making it up as I go. I got bored of work and wanted to go on adventure. I found one pretty easily…
Where and when will I finish cycling? No idea – but hopefully not for a good while!
