A highly unlikely bicycle tourist

Many an incredible story may have been told about young courageous men and women cycling the globe in search of adventure, covering vast distances at speed each day with not a care in the world, sleeping wherever they could pitch a tent or find someone willing to give them a free meal and bed for the night, who intentionally looked bedraggled to resemble famous adventurers of old, with men sporting wild hair and beards that could clear dusty streets as they cycled through.

Well, this incredible story is a little different. It is a story about a 350-pound middle-aged, disabled, working-class husband and father. I was never a regular cyclist, and I knew nothing about bicycle maintenance and repair. And yet, without a single day of bicycle touring practice, I loaded up my shiny new bike with everything I thought I'd need and cycled out of Cheshire to see the world. Solo, self-financed, with no support network and without any fixed route plan other than, "I'm going that way."

What could go wrong? I wondered.

Bicycles and other pedal-powered vehicles and electric-assisted are perfect for exploring the world at just the right speed and in any way you choose.

There are no rules, and you don't have to love cycling or be a regular cyclist to love touring.
