IMPORTANT: I’m currently on the road without internet access until mid September. As such, I won’t be able to respond to any messages until I return. Please forgive the delay and be sure that I’ll get back to you in due course.

I’m happy to help with questions you might have, and I’m always interested to hear from people. But I get a lot of the same questions. The most frequent are just below.

Top 5 Frequently Asked Questions

Can you help me with questions about bikes, equipment, routes, visa, wild-camping, or the trip I’m planning?

Check out the advice section. It’s very likely I’ve already written an article that will help you. Really.

If your question still isn’t answered, get in touch — I’ll be happy to help if I can.

I’m a PR and I’d like to propose something that falls under “content marketing”.

I’m not interested. Sorry.

Can you plan my entire trip for me?

Sure. Sell everything. Quit your job. Get a bike. Ride.

Think it’s more complicated? Check out the Advice & Planning pages.

Can I interview you?

Sure. Café trumps email. Get in touch!

If you want to use my pictures, it’s probably OK — just contact me first, please.

Can you help me get sponsorship/money?


Work, save, sell everything on eBay. And when you leave, don’t spend anything.


Served your apprenticeship? Got a proven track record?

There are two ways to get sponsorship: prove yourself first, or turn your trip into something you probably never wanted. Very few bike tours need sponsorship. You can earn more cash for less effort. (More articles on sponsorship here.)
