Well… we made it. 7 countries in 10 weeks, and we made it. However, though there may be a stench, the sweat and salt hasn’t even been fully rinsed from our clothes, bikes, and gear. Half savoring the last little bit of dirt and grime we brought home from the trip, and half hoping that another one is going to come up before we can get rid of it. We may be back but we are already ready to start planning our next adventure, and we want you to be a part of it.
For all of you who followed along on our first trip (we cannot thank you enough!), and for those of you who are just tuning in to the Salty Spokes community we would love to get some feedback from you guys! Things we could do better on our next trip, suggestions of places to go and routes to take, gear that you simply cannot leave on any trip without, and in general your questions, comments, and concerns.
Our goal with Salty Spokes is not to simply just travel around on our bikes and share our adventures with you, but to get you involved with us and our sponsors as we aim to create a community of people who seek to learn in ways that only traveling can teach. After all we want to be a “True Spoke”, connecting people to places, gear to experiences, and dreams into real adventures.
Our first trip may be done but it doesn’t end here. We are going to keep on pedaling, keep on coming home salty, and keep on getting better as we take Salty Spokes to new places and to new heights. But, we can’t do this without you guys, so now is your time to get involved!
Here is my personal email, and I encourage you and your friends to reach out and give me a call or email to share your thoughts, talk about bikes and surfing, or to just say hi. I want to get to know you, and I want to make Salty Spokes a place and a brand for you.
