The Start of an Epic Bicycle Trip
The next phase of our travel adventures see Luke heading off to India with his bike. He had a bit of help customizing his steed Doris, with hand made dry bag panniers, handlebars, and racks. The final finishing touches were made in Squamish a day before he left.
Luke is meeting our friend Mark in Chennai where they will get themselves organized and start a long bike ride to Goa, about 1,000km to the southern point of India and back up over the next 3 months. Their route is yet to be determined, but I can tell you that they are planning on camping and avoiding major cities as much as possible.
If you are wondering what you would possibly pick for a trip like this the contents of Luke’s bag looked a little like this…
There are a couple of reasons why I am not going along on this adventure, one is that cycling around India in monsoon season isn’t 100% my thing! And another small reason is that I need to behave like an adult for a bit and earn some money. So I’ll be in Canada until June, trying to keep tabs on Luke and keep you updated on his journey.
