Who will survive the cycle tour and what will be left of them?
We’re Emma and Frankie.
This blog is about what happens when one fool (Emma) meets a nice second hand bicycle (Frankie) and together they embark on a cycle tour. If anything we hope it demonstrates that no fitness, skill, classy gear, talent or know how are required to do this type of thing. Some naivety helps though.
We rode from Edinburgh to Berlin, then from Villach to Athens and from Istanbul to Jerusalem via Cairo and Amman (September 2012 – April 2013). Then we went and volunteered for the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) in the West Bank for four and half months. Mostly Frankie had a well earned break on the apartment staircase. Whilst there we met Ellie, whom then joined us for a cycle from Oslo to London (September – October 2013).
Here is a picture of Ellie and Emma trying to escape tear gas with the shabab (youth) at a demonstration in Kafr Qaddum. http://972mag.com/from-funerals-to-more-protests-a-week-in-photos-august-22-28/78184/
We’re not dead yet…
