Want To Plan An Expedition?

For the budding adventurers out there — two wheeled or otherwise — you’d do a lot worse than to come along to the Explore seminar at the Royal Geographical Society in London.

Progress downriver

It lasts the whole weekend, beginning with an opening lecture on the Friday night, with lectures and workshops throughout Saturday and Sunday. Of particular interest to cyclists will be the bicycle expedition logistics seminar. Both Andy and myself will be on the panel this year. It’ll be a great opportunity for us to put our combined experience to good use by imparting to newcomers whatever advice we’re able to dish out.

Four years ago we were in the audience at the same seminar, and more than anything else the reassurance that we were not alone in our madness was a great help during our own planning and preparation phase.

Join Me On Sunday — Wherever You Are

This Sunday I’ll be dashing around the streets of Yerevan on my bike, furiously trying to film a bicycle demonstration that I’ve been organising for the last few weeks, together with a group of local cyclists, as part of the Ride Planet Earth project.

Kim Ngyuen’s been cycling from Australia and is poised to arrive in Copenhagen for a couple of weeks of demonstrations during the COP15 UN climate summit, during which he’s planning to air footage from rides in cities all over the world.

Copenhagen looks set to be packed out with pressure groups and activists from all over the world. A reminder of the priorities of the world’s citizens could go a long way here.

In the unlikely event that you find yourself in Yerevan this weekend, you’re invited to join me and the rest of Yerevan’s cycling community (small, but growing!). If you don’t have a bike, we have procured a number which can be borrowed on a first-come, first-served basis. View a Google Map of the proposed route.
