“Working outdoors is phenomenal.”

When TDA need local support for translations in Turkey in 2014, I entered the picture. Before TDA, I lived year-round there, in Izmir. Now I live on the road eight months of the year; the rest of the time I’m in Turkey, either applying for visas or rock-climbing.

Sometimes on a tour our failures are as incredible as our successes. Being defeated as my tour attempted to climb a new route on Koca Sarp, a rocky mountain in central Anatolia, is an experience I’ll always remember.

I’ve seen so much of the world with TDA. My favourite place I’ve been so far is Meteora, Greece. Probably the greatest pleasure of cycle-touring for me is never spending more than two days in a row in the same spot.

I am retired in Tucson, Arizona, married, and have been a bicycle tourist for the last 25 years or so. I road bike, mountain bike, and try to get in a tour each year. I have toured South America, Vietnam, Singapore to Thailand, Japan. At home rode the Great Divide Trail and Northern Tier among others. Normally I tour with friends self supported. The last three years I have done two supported tours. Did the last section of the North American Epic in December 2019. I am 73 years old.

I'm a nurse and parent to two teens living at 2000m in the mountains of California. For now I'm praying for snow and a long ski season, but when the snow melts I'll hop on my bike and train for this tour. The longest tour I've done so far was 200km in two days on an old cruiser bike.

"Stop looking at the website and just book it! With some training, these trips make you realize how awesome the world is. You can appreciate it at your own pace with the comfort of support but without the restrictions of too much guidance.. Get out and ride it! You will never forgot the experience and will just want more."

"I enjoy the fact that my baggage is being transported, meals are taken care of and you just show up to eat delicious ethnic foods prepared with love. I like being provided with daily detailed route instructions... The tour provides excellent support and logistics. First class biking experience and yes I enjoyed the test of endurance through the various mountain ranges and the beauty of sea."
