The Wonders of Bicycle Adventuring

PRESENTED ON MAR 07, 2016
IN CAPE TOWN @ VOL 37

“Cycle touring is the future of travel. It’s cheap, It’s environmentally friendly, it's a lot of fun and it's a type of travel where you're not trying to get from city to city as fast as you can.”

What happens when a young cartoon-blogger plus her family decide to pack up for a year and embark on an 11,000km unsupported bicycle trip through Africa? A serious, permanent addiction to seeing the world by bicycle – that’s what. In The Wonders of Bicycle Adventuring, from PechaKucha Night Cape Town’s 37th volume, speaker Tegan Phillips give a short cartoon presentation about the wonders of long distance bicycle-travel.
