Cycling around the world!
Backpacking, wandering, and discovering to experience and conquer the world!
That is a reason for the traveler who chooses the bike for his/her companionship. It has become more and more popular and attracted the young nowadays. Why?
He/she likes cycling because it brings him/her the feeling of relaxation and excitement. He/she can stop whenever and wherever he/she wants. He/she can jump off the bike for a second, take photos, spend the day pottering around each corner of any romantic city, or even lie down on the field of greenish grass or white sandy beach. He/she enjoys him/herself entirely, on those narrow roads, in the rural or urban way of life, scenery, people and emotions. On the other hand, traveling by bike is a way to tighten his/her belt for the budget trip.
In another side, cycling is one big adventure and inspiration. Even more importantly though, some adventurers start to feel like more as they are racing, rather than just making it through to the end. To them, it would be more fun and enjoyable than ever!
However, who wants to do a cycling trip must prepare carefully. Cycling is a sport of time. It takes time to train, to get fit, especially for the long trip. Equally, cycling trains your patience, your bravery, and certainly, your health. The cyclist shall never give in under any rough and harsh time. If I can borrow a well-known phrase to express their will, I would say “Hasta la victoria siempre” or “Until the eternal victory”. And the prizes for their endeavor are magic views – the gift from the natural world!
