Is there anyone that would like to join me on an adventure? I am keen to share my future touring experiences with someone else or a small group.
A little about my touring style; I ride a hardtail mountain bike with small rear panniers and 'bikepacking' style bags. Although I have been mainly sticking to roads, I do have the capability to go off road and have done some pretty epic bikepacking/mtbing routes along my travels. I have been touring for 10 months in Frace, Spain, Portugal, Morocco and now Italy. I have been doing 'Workaways' along my route every 3-4 weeks, to have a rest, get to know a place better and cause they are just fun! (And I got stopped for almost 3 months due to the Covid19) Lately I have been covering something around 100km per day, but that number was a lot smaller when I started, and if it is very hilly or head winds then I do less. Majority of the nights I wild camp, and I do like to do some Warmshowers of course! I am on a budget so am only eating out occasionally in Europe to try the local foods!
A bit about me; I am a 24 year old easy going guy, who is generally pretty quite until I have spent time with people. I like to go with the flow and generally do not plan too far a head, as I know that things can change without my control. I am Vegetarian and enjoy seafood occasionally. I love to swim in the sea, lakes or rivers at any opportunity. I am easy if I ride road, dirt road or trail. I am not worried if I take a bus for a small section if it looks not so exciting. I am open minded and happy to discuss anything. I do not drink or smoke and I have no problem with people who do.
A bit of a rough plan; I am currently in Italy heading from the north towards Rome and should be there for the last weekend of June. From Rome I plan to continue south towards Bari and if things are still looking good take a boat to either Albania or Greece (mid july-ish). Then probably another boat to Turkey( maybe August). I have thoughts of Georgia and/or Iran maybe further, and also realise this time of year will be very hot so will have to see what happens.
I am keen to discuss any other options if you are also looking for a buddy. If you want to sound something out please dont hesitate sending me a message. My WhatsApp is +64284054466.
Peace and happy peddling!
