Because life is too short to be stuck in traffic. When you leave home in the morning, it's very likely you are going to get stuck in traffic and feel even more stressed about it.

Estarei postando sobre os preparativos e a viagem em si. / I'll be posting about the preparation and the trip.

E a cada dia que passa fica mais próximo o desafio de atravessar 700 Km. Simplesmente para provar que é possível ou convencer a população em geral que é um prazer e não um fardo pedalar para qualquer lugar.

Everyday brings us closer to the challenge of crossing 700 Km. Just to say we can do it or to convince people it is a pleasure and not a burden to go cycling everywhere.

Great tips for who wants to travel.

1. Keep it cheap. Expensive bicycles with top-of-the-range parts can be a disadvantage if, for instance, they break in rural Turkey where there’s no hope of finding suitable spare parts.

2. Set off with a little bit too much. You can always sell or give away things en route if the going gets tough.

3. Save yourself the pain. Buy a second-hand saddle that’s already been worn in by someone else.

4. It doesn’t have to be steel. Aluminium-frame bicycles are cheaper, lighter and strong enough for the job, providing you ride sensibly.


5. Travel with four panniers. This requires having both front and back frames fitted to your bicycle. Cycling with a rucksack is a sure route to back pain and misery, while towing a trailer means two extra wheels that could suffer punctures.

6. Schrader tyre valves, also known as “car-type” valves, are more practical than presta valves as they can be inflated at any garage.

7. Get a Visa debit card. These are accepted in far more cash machines than any others.

8. See crazyguyonabike.com, where you can find dozens of articles about long-distance journeys, as well as discussion forums and reviews.

9. Most importantly of all, you don’t need to be called Lance Armstrong. Most of the cyclists I met during my journey had no previous cycling experience. It didn’t stop them. It won’t stop you.

It always comes down to price vs quality.

In the south hemisphere it's time to ride. Summer is expected to be real hot this year as the weather keeps rising. The two scenarios are dire for those who plan to ride for hours during the day.

While sweating is only a part of all the effort, dehydrating is a nightmare. On the other hand, not having this sweat evaporate due to humid climate is dreadful and undesirable as well.

Drinking water and sunscreen can help. However, there might be much more to do in order to keep yourself up and at it.

It would be awesome to hear about any lifesaver tips of yours, my bike friends. B-)

Hey fellow bike heroes. What is the longest you could stand to stay away from home? And why?
