Breaking Chains and Not Burning Rubber

BREAKING CHAINS - Freedom: Cycle touring is the greatest way I have found to experience freedom. Whilst I celebrate mine I hope to help others gain and realise theirs, and protect ours, by fundraising for Amnesty International

NOT BURNING RUBBER - Environmental Awareness: Cycling is one of the most efficient and sustainable modes of transport. It's slow speed allows you to become more aware and connected with our surroundings, and therefore the pressures that they may be under. I intent to have a minimal negative impact on the environment whilst I travel, and will share my observations and experiences about my journey, environmental issues, and sustainable living here:

Bikes!

Here are some pics of some interesting bikes I saw along the way;

This was at a street market, check out the great idea for rear panniers!


A typical Buenos Aires ride! No brakes, no gears, keep it simple. The handle bars are pretty low compared to most.
A crazy guy on the BA prom. Speakers going and CB radio included!
Take it easy!

The only cyclist I met on the road, a Dutch guy heading south to Santiago from the North tip of Chile. Check out the alternative setup to mine - a trailer. He said he was to exhausted riding through the desert so got the bus up the Andes to San Pedro (Sorry but that makes me feel better!). He did make it through the true desert though and gave me some great advice. Cheers!
