A TransAm bicycle tour // Recumbent cycling through Wyoming USA // Adventure Cycling in America // Deserts of China // The Himalayas on tour //
I discovered some great cycle touring video collections, this one covers the Trans American route across Wyoming, United States and seeing the scenery reminds me of motorcycling there 1994-1996.
[Authors notes:] I rode my bicycle self supported across the USA in the summer of 2011. This is a little video series that highlights parts of my trip.
Adventure Cycling Association just published this great short film on bicycle touring the American TransAm route. Videos like this are inspiration to go out and ride anywhere. [Authors notes:]With the incomparable Madison Range as a backdrop, cyclists explore the backroads, farmer's markets, and small towns of Big Sky Country using pedal power alone.

“Love is a bicycle with two pancakes for wheels. You may see love as more of an exercise in hard work, but I see it as more of a breakfast on the go.”
Do you need strength to carry on?
Do you think you have it in you?
Do you have the strength?
Do you have tenacity?
Do you believe?
Do you dream?
Then work it.
You need to get back up and fight for that DREAM, make it your reality, Not someone else's. And when they tell you that you're no good, You can probably do better than all of them.
Planning expeditions, doing them, paying for them, preparing for them - isn't easy.
and the dream can slip away,
friends can turn on you, family can ignore you,
companies will ignore you,
you will feel exhausted,
you will feel beat,
you will lose hope,
but if you will persist,
you will eventually succeed,
if they don't care, it won't matter,
it's what is in you that matters,
you will become successful
because it's in you,
and forget about what happened in the past, it won't change itself. It's about today and what you can do about it.
So, remember to...put your effort into
making the rest of your life, the best of your life.

About the Korean-World Author
Brian has just completed his second major epic, MongoliaX expedition - Crossing Mongolia 2012, a solo mountain bike MTB expedition across 2500km of Outer Mongolia from Ulanbaatar to Altai Taven-Bogd National Park bordering China, Russia and Mongolia.
In 2013, Brian cycled 3400km (2000 miles) in 30 days completing a cross-country bicycle journey called Totherocktour. Enjoying the adventure of bicycle travel and great conversations he cycled solo from the Great Lake State of Michigan, United States to Banff National Park in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. He weaved through local communities and reconnected with friends, family and community after spending almost a decade in Asia.
Brian is now supporting several non-profit foundations through expeditions: IDEAS Foundation of Canada IDEAS is the acronym for Intestinal Disease Education and Awareness Society which supports the IBD community, those suffering from IBD-inflammatory bowel disease, also known as Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis.
Thanks for visiting my Journal from Asia
