About Us

Click here for the italian version!

Arthur and Bruno.

Passionate travelers and bicycle lovers.

We know each other since elementary school and our paths crossed many times:
We played together in the same football team and we have also been bitter opponents.

in the last years, for a series of events, we discovered to share the same passion for cycling, that’s why we decided to open this blog in which we promote a healthy and sustainable way of living, traveling and exercising.
Obviously this madness started from a joke!
We were talking about bike culture in The Netherlands and the beauty of their cycle paths so we decided to challenge ourselves to something that we never did before: a short trip from Amsterdam to Utrecht and back via some little towns along the road.
We weren’t really prepared, but 50km a day can be do-able for everyone.
It was a great experience that had a profound effect on us.
Do you know the fabled maxim “Happiness is real only when shared”? If you don’t know it you need to remediate immediately watching  the film “Into The Wild”.
For this reason we decided to share with as many people as possibile our passion and our way to travel.

How we travel

We both work and we do not have a lot of time to spend on the road, so we want to show that is possible to travel in just a few days and that you don’t need to be on the move for a great number of days.
We want to demonstrate that is possible to enjoy freedom even also without quit your job and there is no reason anyone else can’t do it.
For the moment we are exploring Europe.
We like to explore a country at a time without crossing borders to try to understand how locals perceive bikes.
Travel by bike is the best way to enjoy slowness, to live a nation in its uniqueness.

Safe travels to everyone and keep pedaling.

Follow us on Instagram and Facebook if you want know more about our adventures.

  1. Thanks for dropping by to my blog. I love your idea – and agree with you that travelling by bike is wonderful. Keep going! (maybe you’ll get to our part of the world one day – there’s some great cycling round here despite the lack of support from government central and local.

  4. I am old and broken up but cycling was my passion in here in southern America. Your site is like a breath of fresh air to me. Wishes for great success on your endeavors.

  5. I bought an early 1980’s, 30 Euro, way too small junior racing road bike from Emmaus in France and after some basic upgrades rode it JOYFULLY throughout my mother-in-law’s region every year we visited from the USA! One morning struggling up a steep climb, a tiny little grandmother (great grandmother maybe even?) stopped, tucked her morning bread under her arm and started clapping – “ALLEZ ALLEZ!!!” That was 5 years ago and I have since upgraded the bike BUT WHAT AN INCREDIBLE WAY TO CONNECT WITH EACH OTHER!!!
