Thank you so much !

As we approached Sicamous the landscape made a sudden change back to familiar terrain. The desert feel of the Okanagan behind us and with it the blasting heat. In fact we got our first rain along the road to Yard Creek. When I was packing back in Vancouver I thought I would need my rain pants (actually heavy snow pants) and shoe covers. I didn’t. You just get used to cycling in the rain with the cycle shorts and rain jacket and it’s less sweaty. “I need to ditch these in Calgary” I said to myself as I was cycling these unnecessary items across the province. We stopped in Yard Creek campground for the night and made our way to Revelstoke the next day. Arriving in Revelstoke I immediately fell in love with the place. Surrounded by beautiful mountains with the Columbia river winding it’s way through, the vibe of the town was cool. Quirky. Just how I like it. We had our second rest day in ‘Revy’ and one of the best sandwiches I’ve ever had at La Baguette. Getting tasty food that you don’t have to cook has become the height of luxury. #cyclingacrosscanada #acrosscanada #biketour #biketouring #cycle #bikepacking #cycletouring #thejourneyhome #onceinalifetime #journey #ireland #beautifulbc #hellobc #touring #adventure #camping #camplife #ontheroad #revelstoke #revy #revylife #goinghome

When I’m not riding my bike, I can be found at ancient temples praying to Buddha that I was riding my bike 😂⠀

Ayutthaya, Thailand’s original capital city did not disappoint. From ancient city ruins, to temples, Buddha’s bones and floating markets, this place is a must see for those traveling to Bangkok.⠀

Just 60km from Don Mueang Airport, Ayutthaya will transport you back in time 👌🏽⠀

Next stop, Kanchanaburi ✌🏽⠀

Note: @bbbcyclingaustralia sunglasses doing a superb job of keeping my scalp protected from the glare 😂😎⠀

Astral Highway, Patagonia, Chile 🇨🇱 Argentina 🇦🇷. The color that jumps into my eyes melts my heart naturally. The glacier melts out like a fjord.

アウストラル街道、パタゴニア、チリ🇨🇱アルゼンチン🇦🇷。目の中に飛び込んで来る色は、ナチュラルに僕の心を溶かしていく。まるで氷河が溶け出してフィヨルドのように。

Lo más inteligente que me dijeron cuando llegué a Ushuaia, vino de un amigo de México:
— Felicidades porque ahora las posibilidades son inmensas.
Argentina 🇦🇷, I’m back!!! 😎

First impressions of Mongolia....🤔 The countryside is wide and open and sparse. It's beautiful. Will do more exploring later 😁

The city is very reminiscent of many of the cities I visited in Eastern Europe; stark and grey. That doesn't mean gross or horrible, it's just a character different to what I'm used to from the western and Asian cities that I've been to.
The people so far have been very nice. Kind, friendly and willing to throw you a casual smile as you walk by in the street.
So far so good.

Disclaimer: These impressions are based on all of 3 days here. Don't read too much into them 😊

Incredible jungle cycling along the border of Laos and Vietnam down the Ho Chi Minh Highway.

I think someone was pulling your leg when they told you that snowboots and wool moose socks were a year-round legal requirement to ride in the pinetree state. But seriously, I'm super impressed you rode from Newberryport, Mass to Portland, Maine - even after you realized you forgot to pack your summer riding shoes...

The border at Erlian between China and Mongolia is one that is apparently only passable by vehicle. That means no walking and no cvcling. Due to this fact being sprung on is only upon arrival at the border we had to find ourselves a means of getting across.

Luckily a group of 4 foreigners with fully loaded touring bikes looking around and staring at phones and maps tends to stick out like the proverbial sore thumb and we were waved at by a nice lady (and good businesswoman) who simply asked: "Jeepu?", to which I nodded "yes". Not 5 minutes later we had a man with a slightly beaten up 4x4 and an iron will to squeeze 4 bikes, about 20 bags and 4 cyclists into and onto his car by any means necessary standing in front of us, ready to help us out of our quandary.
Lots of cringing, arguing about what goes where and a whole lot of squeezing later, we were in his car and on our way to cross the border. Problem solved.

What you see here are the back ends of @jeremyj0hn @claudiahirtenfelder and @unlearningbybike during this process.

Bike camping this weekend 84km away in Darlington. A bit nuts to see how far we biked looking at the tiny CN tower on the left of the horizon. *not pictured is the hell we endured with rain, wind and midge swarms on the way out.* Good company and good times on the way back though. #greatlakeswaterfronttrail #cycletouring

August 26, 1948: "After a short ride south, we had to get off & push about 3 miles up a very steep road to Kirkstone Pass (1,500 feet altitude), where we were even with the clouds & it was cold and misty. Had tea at a dime per cup, twice the usual rate, and started down toward Ambleside over Stock Gill in the rain, a road so steep that one had to keep both front & rear brakes almost locked all the way down." - RSIII letter to family.
.
May 23, 2018: "I don't think 20% grades are allowed in Switzerland." - Philipp to Liz at 20% grade sign.
.
We made it with only figurative pushing, but it didn't feel any easier - suggesting it's technology not genetics to credit here. (David Epstein has an interesting Ted talk about this btw.) Were surprised so many of the stone walls are post-1948, judging from the photo diffs, and the route they took down is now officially marked as 'The Struggle'. #kirkstonepass #lakedistrict #stonewalls #pushing #brakes #breaks #businesscasual #thestruggle #cycletouring

Dad and I at the Hook of Holland, the end of the Rhine!

Finally, we've reached Mongolia!! After having gotten to Beijing about 3 weeks ago, we were hit with the worst bout of "admin" we've possibly ever suffered from.

Admin, to those of you unfamiliar with it, is an affliction which forces you to do a thing called "adulting". That means getting things done that need to get done, regardless of whether they are fun and enjoyable or not.
In our case that meant applying for a variety of visas, filling in documents, applying for more visas, visiting embassies, standing in queues, emailing a bunch of people, contacting our banks for a variety of reasons and just generally "sorting shit out", as one says.
Due to this, we spent far more time on the less fun things than the fun things. This sucks. Luckily we for us, due to all of the "admin" we had to endure, we've built up quite a resistance to it, which means that we should be able to spend the next few months mostly admin free.
If only they could invent a vaccine for admin 🤔

The picture was taken during the train portion of our 36 hour bike-bus-jeep-wait-train-bike transportation slog that took us from Beijing to Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia a few days ago.

Now all that's left is a bit of organisation and then it's off into the wild for riding, cooking, camping, stargazing and just general naturing for many weeks to come.

Bring it on, Mongolia, I'm ready! 😎
