Route 66, USA

2000 mile solo cycle


In October of 2012 I embarked on a 2000 mile solo cycle Across the USA, following the old Route 66. To date this has been my most spontaneous expedition, having only thought up the idea 5 days before setting off.


In a whirlwind effort to set off within days, and owning none of the equipment I actually needed, a plan was hatched on a shoestring budget which would see me borrowing an old pair of mens shoes two sizes too big, buying a bike older than I was and getting my hands on a free pair of red panniers from the 1960’s that were, in all honesty, crumbling. The real beauty of this expedition was in its simplicity. It was, without a doubt, a detox from the complexity of everyday life.
