I rode the TDA in 2006 and it was one of the greatest trips I have ever done. It has been almost 10 years since that continental conquest and with my little girl almost 6 years old and happily in kindergarten I am finally ready for another great adventure. I cannot wait to exhaust myself daily with friends, see beautiful scenery and relish in the joy of a cold drink and food in little villages at the top of some monster hill/mountain or on some washboard road.

Rode the Ruta Maya tour in 2015 and loved it. This tour looks just as challenging and interesting and with a heap of Ruta Maya riders already signed up, there wasn't an option not to register. Shame I won't be able to do the whole tour but hopefully will be able to do 1 or 2 sections.

I have realised cycling holidays let you see and experience so much more - and you can eat porridge every day and not feel guilty for all those carbs! Sign me up. I have cycled sections of Ruta Maya, Tour D'Afrique, and the last section of West Africa in 2018. Erin convinced me that we need to cycle again so we are meeting up to ride the Silk Route. Let's hope there is WIFI. I'm self employed so have to work outside of riding my bike. It's been done everywhere else so I am sure I'll be fine here too. Places I want to see before I die.. Iran, Mauritius and Alaska in no particular order. I guess this ticks off Iran!

Hi. I've been racing bikes for 44 years. Velodromes first, then road racing and six mountain bike races in the last ten years. More interested in some adventures now. Maybe too slow to race:) My partner, Eleanor and I live at the base of Mount Wellington in Tasmania, where we can ride straight out our front gate and up onto a network of challenging and interesting trails across the face of the mountain. Looking forward to meeting all of you. See you on the trails.

I live in Switzerland and I am working in Human Resources. In my spare time I like riding my bicycle, running, swimming, hiking in the mountains, but also less powerful things like cooking, reading, drinking wine and talking to other people or watching movies and listening to good music. I feel really exited to do this "La Ruta Maja" tour and I hope we will have a very good time, with sunny weather, exciting but also nice bike rides, good roads and - most important of all - a save trip to San José and back home.

In 2015 I cycled the Ruta Maya in Central America. It was my first TDA tour, which was hard, but absolutely fantastic! The following year I cycled a part of the Trans-Oceania Tour - from Auckland to Queenstown. After that I cycled in Nepal, Sikkim and Myanmar. Wonderfull! Now I'm looking forward to cycle again in the Himalaya. And I'm also looking forward to meet some friends on this tour!

“A mountain biker at heart, but bike touring pays the bills!”

Most of the time, I work at the TDA head office in Toronto as the IT Manager, but I also sometimes work on the tours as needed, either as a guide or a bike mechanic. I landed here because my uncle mentioned to me he had a friend—Henry—with this crazy bike company, the friend and I met, and the rest is history.

I studied Business and IT at university, and my previous job was at an exotic car dealership. In my own time, I do more mountain biking than touring, and usually find nice trails to ride wherever our tours take me. Outside of TDA, I’ve cycled across Europe and half of Canada.

The Pamir Highway was a peak experience for me! As a mountain biker, I always love the roughest, crappiest roads our tours travel on. My favourite day of the entire Silk Route was actually the day that most of the other riders thought was the worst—it ended with a long switchback descent on a rough gravel road.

Every day brings a new challenge to solve, whether here in the office or on the side of a road in the desert. I really value that element of my job and relish it immensely.

I love to travel, and bicycle touring is my preferred way to see the world. This will be my first tour as a 'sectional rider'. I’ve enjoyed 4 full TDA tours: Indian Adventure, Ruta Maya, Pub Ride, West Africa en Vélo. I am looking forward to re-visiting Budapest and experiencing Romania, Bulgaria and Istanbul for the first time. I have travelled lots, but my list of places to visit never gets any shorter. I became a teacher, mainly because of the holidays, and I am now semi-retired, doing occasional teaching in between travels. Looking forward to renewing old friendships and making new ones.

In 2014 my wife ,Anne, & I having been married for 30 years .in celebration,(desperation) undertook the Tour d' Afrique , on the basis that if we deferred the trip we might never go. We completed some 4,700 kilometres through Sudan, Ethiopia & Kenya, when just over the border into Tanzania I was hit by a truck resulting in 6 cracked ribs & unconsciousness, which meant I was forced to withdraw from the ride. I have decided to join the 2017 TDA in Arusha , where my TDA ended in 2014 . So assuming (fingers crossed) I complete the journey to Cape Town this will complete my personal TDA . Anne hopes to join us at Victoria Falls & ride from there to Cape Town. .

Hi, I’m Marek from Canada and this will be my third tour with TDA. I started cycling in 2014, and signed on for my first trip with TDA in 2015, through Africa. I cycled 10500km of the over 12000km trip. It was an incredible experience; definitely a trip of a lifetime. Then in 2016, I completed five hard weeks of cycling, through the mountainous terrain of Central America, with stops in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, and Belize. I climbed 41061m in elevation, and cycled the total distance of the tour, 2600km. In doing so, I achieved the illustrious TDA EFI designation; meaning I rode Every F#&!ing Inch of the journey! It was challenging mentally, physically, and tested one’s endurance and equipment. I’m happy to say that my bike and I, met all the demands of that test. The experience was incredible, and I will treasure the memories forever. Now I look forward to meeting the people on the Bamboo Road tour, and making new memories.

“Good afternoon, my dear dream merchants."—TDA rider arriving at the office in Toronto for a visit.

I started with TDA as a local cyclist in Brazil during the Vuelta Sudamericana in 2009. I had just finished a long solo cycling trip through South America and I was invited to join the first couple of sections of the tour to help with the language. Once I was back home I started volunteering for the company, doing everything I could to spread the word about TDA. Eventually they decided that it was only fair to hire me.

It’s really hard to choose a place or a tour that was special, but both scouting and leading our first Trans-Oceania tour was certainly out of the ordinary. I had ten weeks to scout the whole thing from Medan to Sydney and spent nine of them trying to wrap Indonesia.

I recall a particular day in Indonesia that the riders later named "The Wall". Henry and I had been discussing avoiding a stretch of highway we weren’t happy with. We’d seen an alternative on the map but the road was privately owned by industry and we were having trouble getting the getting the permits we needed to use it. When we arrived, we saw local people using the road, which was a trail, so we decided to have lunch there to give me time to scope it out. A local guy on a motorbike took me up the steep trail to check it, flag it, and take notes and waypoints. At some stage, the trail got so steep that the motorbike couldn’t get both of us up, so I walked the rest of the way before calling staff at the lunch spot to tell them the route worked and to give them directions. It was a bit improvised and out of the ordinary but it was functional.

Because I knew what this steep route would put the riders through, I decided to wait and touch base with the first to complete it to see what they had to say about the experience. The first couple of cyclists showed up with big smiles on their faces and said they’d loved it but that they didn't think I should wait for everyone because there was sure to be some aggravated rider who would probably punch me. I decided to stay and wait for that punch, and while a few people did arrive looking ready to smack me, the angriest of them all actually just gave me a big hug. After a good shower and some good food everyone was in fine spirits; in the end, this day turned out to be a rider favourite of the whole trip.

Working with TDA is really the perfect job. Not only do I love both travel and bicycles, I also love watching people achieve things of which they never imagined themselves capable. Finally, this job allows me to share these loves with a wonderfully diverse group of people.

There are few experiences in life that compare to riding my bike through beautiful landscapes in faraway lands. Beyond working for TDA as Accountant and Tour Support, I've been a client 7 times now. All these journeys have had their magical moments. Spinning through Iran - pinch me, I'm dreaming!, across Turkey - where east meets west, down Chile's remote Carretera Austral, and into the canyonlands of the American southwest, to name a few. Completing the Tour d'Afrique is another. And of course, meeting our amazing clients from around the world and the "salt of the earth" local people along the way. I rode Hanoi to Bangkok 2 years ago and now its time to carry on down the Malay peninsula from Bangkok to Singapore. See you in November!
