Winter cycling

Just possible to keep cycling
posted on 6 Feb 2022 Ærø — 31 Dec 2021 Just possible to keep cycling

Just before Christmas, it was time to leave the family and start cycling again. Back to the camper, albeit with a big detour to Copenhagen. It had been quite comfortable there. Luckily it took only about 400 metres before adventure kicked in again. I found out my chain had cracks all over, and was about to break. Plus, it started snowing!

Denmark by shelter

Forest ride
posted on 27 Jan 2022 Drammelstrup — 18 Dec 2021 Forest ride

In the evening of 8 December we started preparing ourselves for another bike tour. We had found a good parking spot for the camper van with a super friendly owner of a camping shop in the north of Germany, next to the border of Denmark. He allowed us or, even better, proposed to us to park on their parking lot, hidden between all the other campers. Excellent! This gave us some peace of mind after what happened during our last bike tour.

This is not the first update I wish I had to write on our trip but I need to get this off my chest.

In case someone is wondering: I made it back home. After travelling for 1 year, 7 months and 6 days I arrived back on our doorstep on April 18th, surprising my brother and mother.

During my time in Khartoum I went to Omdurman, a city just North of Khartoum, where every Friday, just before sunset, there's a dancing ceremony. It is held in the cemetery next to the tomb of Sufi leaders.

Generosity in Sudan

Pyramids of Meroe
posted on 26 Mar 2017 Khartoum — 4 Feb 2016 Pyramids of Meroe

The point of my trip was to travel over land as much as possible. Hitchhiking, (mini)buses, trains, boats. But when I left Belgium I was sure to fly at least one time. I would go from Egypt to Ethiopia by air as to avoid travelling in Sudan, which was said to be very unsafe.

I am recovering just fine but I haven't recovered well enough to finish my cycling trip this time around.

Still looking good a couple of hours before the crash

I wish I didn't have to write this but I do: my bicycle trip has come to an abrupt end.. I got hit by a truck in Knysna, on my 22nd cycling day, 57 km in, towards Wilderness.
