  • We made it to the top of Goderzi Pass in Georgia! 😁😁😁😁 Goderzi Pass with its 2,025m was the highest pass we had to tackle so far in our adventure.

It was definitely not a an easy one: several steep parts and no asphalt. Only rocks and mud. 
Several drivers drove next to us and proposed to drive us and our bikes to the top. But we always politely declined! We wanted to make it only by our legs' strength and mental ressources! 😅

It was sometimes hard and very challenging but the local people and drivers had always cheered us and waved at us.

Reaching the top was an overwhelming feeling with a mix of pride, joy, exhaustment... Our bodies and our bikes made it! 100 days ago we would had probably not been physically able to make it! 
Friendly stray dogs welcomed us at the top. We then had a good lunch with local food and then started our 20km ride down to continue our journey in Georgia! .

  • Thank you for the trip of my life, Colombia, Perú, Bolivia, Chile, Brazil and Argentina. I will see you again! Traveling with my bike back to my continent but bringing home many people in my heart. 🔜 Barcelona 👋🏼

  • Following the strenuous, and breathtaking in every way, climb up to Grosse Scheidegg, I had called it a day in Spiez along Lake Thun. From there, I headed southwest through the Simmental, the route tracing the course of the river Simme for a good portion of it.

It was very much uphill, with some fairly steep sections, until the town of Gstaad, known as a quality ski resort and high society destination.

Soon after, I entered the french speaking part of Switzerland. My destination for the day was Château-d'Œx, where I am going to sit out the inclement weather to hit the region over the next day. A rest day will be heaven for my legs 😉

  • So psyched on trying harder Trad these days! 😊 I'm getting comfy onsight leading 5.11+ (7s) and taking some big falls on gear! When I first got to Lofoten my goal was just to climb 5.10 (6+) Very pleasently surprised with how quickly I surpassed that! I'm still shiet at hand cracks but at least I don't try to layback them anymore. Finger cracks are definitely more my jam 👌

  • The illustrious wood bike is now complete, and riding beautifully, but I wanted to make another "making of" post with some final specs.
·
·
An interesting trend that I've observed while interacting with the public around this bike is the amount of men that tell me, "so it's not a real wood bike, it's a carbon bike with a wood case". Or, they try to suss the engineering to me as if I hadn't just told them I helped build the damn thing. I'll leave it at that. ·
·
I will reiterate however that this is indeed a wood bike. A wood bike with carbon and kevlar *reinforcement* pressed into the inside. Saying this isn't a wood bike because of the reinforcement material is like saying a concrete building isn't a concrete building because there's rebar in there. With a perfect grain, Gary Oak would be more than strong enough to act on its own for this bike.  However, nature is nature and that means there's no such thing as a tree with perfect, unmarred grain. That's why we bring in the carbon fiber and kevlar.
·
·
After all is said and done, the bike has a #rohloff hub with 14 speeds, all controlled through a single grip shift. @rolfprima built the wheel for the hub as it's bigger than your standard set-up. We put 700c/42mm tires on it, a #dynamohub and some @jonesbikes H-bars.

  • Llegó el día. Los nervios estaban a flor de piel. Esa noche dormí poco y mal. La cabeza no paraba de dar vueltas. Las dudas se acumulaban. El miedo afloraba. Es tan difícil de explicar el cúmulo de sentimientos encontrados horas antes de salir. Había llegado el momento. El de verdad. El que tanto llevaba esperando.

The day finally arrived. I was very nervous. That night I slept little and bad. My head couldn't stop thinking. Doubts raised. Fear emerged. It's so difficult to explain the mixed feelings that I had just before leaving. The time had come. The real one. The one that I was waiting for so long.

  • Bikepacking Grampians Days 1&2

After recovering from my traffic collision I had a few days to play with and decided to test out my new rig around the Grampians national park.

Despite a few mishaps it was a blast, so much fun on this bike, eats washboard roads for breakfast and rocks for lunch. Fast acceleration on these chunky tyres. 
Nice to see some proper Australian scenery while living in the city.

  • I wished instead of building wide roads where there is no traffic, they would use that money for building bicycle paths in towns and villages.

  • Dear diary,
.
The American West is a place of thrilling lands and sky, a country where the heavens and the earth intertwine through the long, warm days and the cool, star strewn nights.
.
Mountains thrust ever upwards dappled in copper, burnt oranges, khaki, and gold. On their backs ride evergreen brush and blonde grasses. They rise from the North Platte River Basin, stretching languidly, ranges disconnected and dotting the landscape. The unbroken horizon of the plaines is behind us, yet the majestic Rockies are still ahead. This transitional land sways back and forth, borrowing the ecology of the other to form a unique and stunning vision.
.
It is also a place of arid, dry, climate that I find my body ill suited for. Where once my skin shone with a delicate golden sheen, it is now dry and dust covered. Where once my hair was wild, curvey, and voluminous, it is now flat, straight, and brittle seeming. I suppose the general mechanics of my body functional, yet does it matter whether I can continue peddling if I don't look gorgeous whilst about that business?
.
Life is SO hard.

  • Day 52 continued:
Physically the heat and humidity are my kryptonite. I’m fairly certain I sustained a mild form of heat exhaustion on this day. Unbeknownst to me the hardest 27 miles of this map section fell on this day, which was also in the triple digits and very humid. At first I started riding between shade spots, and stopping more than I ever have just to cool off. Then it got even worse and I actually begin stopping and pushing Blü. I’ve never done this before because as I tell people, fully loaded Blü is actually more difficult to push than ride; however, I think on some level I knew that if I allowed my body to rest too long it wasn’t going to move again. Despite drinking copious amounts of water, I couldn’t keep up with the amount of sweat I was losing and by the time I arrived in Ellington, I couldn’t think properly. I wrote down the code to the bike hostel wrong, didn’t pay attention to the directions, and went to three different places trying to track it down. Then when I got there I locked myself out with my phone and all possessions inside. It was the hardest day physically that I’ve had and it affected every aspect of my experience.

  • Day 52 proved to be the most physically challenging day of the tour so far, and I was beginning to wonder if Missouri wasn’t going to be my nemesis state because of the weather, Murphy’s sick sense of humor and the cultural climate.
Shortly after beginning my ride I discovered a turtle in the road so I scooped him up and was going to take him to safety just as cars appeared approaching from both directions. So I moved aside not wanting to interfere with traffic; and accidentally fell over with Blü & the turtle while loosing a lens from my Rx riding glasses. After looking for over 45 minutes without success and nursing a bruise and strained hand, I was feeling pretty upset at the “injustice” of harming myself trying to save the turtle while being considerate of drivers. On top of which now I no longer have riding glasses that protect my eyes from flying debris. Then I reframed the incident: the turtle was still alive, I was still alive, and I’d even get to use my spare regular glasses that I’d brought, which was better than carrying something unused.
Culturally, cat-calling has become a routine occurrence and I’ve been more uncomfortable in Missouri than any other state so far. Throughout the tour most people have expressed concern for my safety as a solo-female, which has made me feel safer because it lets me know others are thinking of, and watching out for me. The questioning in Missouri has seemed to shift a bit from concern to disbelief, and a need to point out my vulnerability; which has the inverse impact and makes me feel as though people may be more likely to turn a blind eye. However, I’m glad to be experiencing this cultural difference as a reminder that: for true healthy progression we need to make sure all folks have access to, and awareness of, important values & the accompanying behaviors of gender equality and freedom from discrimination and harm.
