Welcome to DC on a Bike!
This page is to document my adventures as I (Kiwi guy DC) cycle the world for a couple of years.
The plan kicked off in March 2012, and began by spending the northern summer cycling Europe. This took 6 months, taking in Spain, France, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, Holland, Belgium, France and the UK. In early September 2012 I flew to Japan for a few weeks riding, before heading into China by ferry in early September.
I’m now making my way through China and SE Asia for a few months- probably finishing in Bangkok around April 2013. From there I’ll fly to Melbourne and take a container ship back to New Zealand!
My bikes name is Indie, short for Indefatigable. I’m hoping that I can be somewhat indefatigable in my approach to this trip! It’s also the name of Horatio Hornblower‘s ship, and Indie was the name of a very awesome Alaskan Malamute dog I once met in Nelson.
