Long ago, back in the year twenty aught seven, back when the Internet was a place of mystery and intrigue, this website was born to chronicle the celebration of love. Carrie and I (Nick) decided to spend our honeymoon bicycling around New Zealand for three months. Although we had no bicycle touring experience, we made up for it with ignorance and spirit.
How hard could it be to ride all day, every day? We are in love. Love will temper the headwinds, soothe our saddle sores, and protect us from distracted drivers. And we were right. Cycling around New Zealand wasn’t hard at all. It was so much fun that we’ve continued to carve out time to tour.
From the deserted moonscapes of Iceland to the lush redwood forests of the Santa Cruz mountains, we’ve enjoyed beautiful glimpses of the world on our bikes. And we don’t aim to stop. We love it. So sink into your favorite chair and feel free to read our stories. May they inspire you take a ride, to take off, to love life.
