Sights and Sounds: Over 200 Posts That Will Inspire You to Get on Your Bike

September 11, 2015

Dream. Pedal. Travel. Repeat!

I have been posting on this blog since 2009 under the category of Sights & Sounds. That was over 200 posts ago. It has been a chance for me to revisit many of my bicycle journeys and grab bits and pieces of beauty, humor, and inspiration from around the world. You can read them all at the link above. Below you will find ten of my personal favorites.

Here's to life as seen and experienced from the seat of a bicycle!
