Since my video about the truck drivers in Brazil, many people have commented saying that I should ride on the small country roads. Trust me... I do!! I follow as MANY as possible for obvious reasons. The thing is that Brazil is littered with mountains and rivers. These geographic barriers make it impossible to complete a 2000km touring route without getting spat onto the busy trucking roads at multiple points. 😉
As soon as the sun goes down, I give myself just 15 minutes to find a place to camp — it’s not worth any more time when you’re off again at dawn. I’m normally somewhat hidden so I feel very safe, even in big cities. My main concern is that there is no barking dog within 200m! Recently I’ve pitched in vineyards, industrial areas, soy fields, parks, churches, school grounds, football stadiums and construction sites. I still get a buzz out of how sneaky it is!
After 100,000km+ of bike adventures around the world, I’ve never had a bad accident. But that day had to come I guess! I’m miraculously quite ok, but what’s not ok is my helmet. It did its job. I know falling off is rare, but helmets do actually work when your head is approaching the ground at speed. If you can find one that fits nice and is comfortable, you’re on a winner!
Greaaaat!! One mountain stage done and two more to go... 😄✌🏼 Tomorrow is the Queen stage of @tirreno_adriatico and that means 219km with 5000 meters of climbing. 😯 Good that today's stage was only 6,5 hours... 😜
Good night everyone!
I'm in the Mecca of (italian) cycling! Looking forward to my first @milansanremo this Saturday. But first it's all about recovering from a very hard @tirreno_adriatico and that means: an easy ride and coffee in the sun with the boys. 😎☕ Ci vediamo presto!
