I met a cycling Water Bottle Collector: TOUR OF KOREA 2011

  • Arantza Raposo Benito
    • BIDONS (WATER BOTTLE CYCLING) OF TEAMS TO RUN IN TOUR OF KOREA 2011
      Dear Mr. Perich!!

      My name is Arantza, I´m from Bilbao (Basque Country) the north of Spain.
      I´m fond of the cycling for many years and collect bidons (water bottle). I´m going to every races that are organized in Europe and everytime I am collecting bidons for my collection though there are a lot of them that are more difficult to obtein, like the bidons of any of the cycling team to run in your cycle race.
      I tried to contact the equipment by email, but they do not respond to me and for me is impossible to go to see your race. I wonder if you could help me. I guess to you will be easier to talk with the cycling teams or cyclist and can get these bidons. Then I would send a letter with the money for shipping cost.
      The bidons of the teams that I´m looking for and run in the Tour de Korea 2011 are:

      1.- TEAM TYPE 1 SANOFI AVENTIS
      2.- JELLY BELLY PRESENTED BY KENDA
      3.- RAPHA CONDOR SHARP
      4.- PARTIZAN POWERMOVE
      5.- SUBWAY CYCLING TEAM
      6.- GENESYS WEALTH ADVISES
      7.- TEAM BONITAS
      8.- TABRIZ PETROCHEMICAL TEAM
      9.- TERENGGANU CYCLING TEAM
      10.- MAX SUCCESS SPORTS
      11.- CHAMPION SYSTEM
      12.- AISAN RACING TEAM
      13.- SEOUL CYCLING TEAM
      14.- KSPO
      15.- GEUMSN GINSENG ASIA
      16.- UZBEKISTAN NATIONAL TEAM
      17.- KOREA NATIONAL TEAM
      18.- MALAYSIA NATIONAL TEAM
      19.- JAPAN NATIONAL TEAM

      Best wishes,
      Arantza

    • Hey Arantza,

      I wish I could help you. I am an unsponsored cyclist in Korea. I use a facebook group to promote Cycling in Korea (group name, you can join and post your message there asking for help from others or try the group -Han River Riders ...the second group I am no longer member of but there is a guy named Tim Travis that could help you, he is well connected to the cycling industry people in Korea).

      I write about my experiences with cycling through my blog http://korean-world.blogspot.com/ and I plan to cycle from the Arctic (Canada) to Argentina (South America) in 2012. (:

      Peace and thanks for sending your message,

      Brian Perich

About the Korean-World Author

Brian Perich was an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) lecturer for a decade, father, and adventure cyclist based in South Korea.

Previously, Brian has led Canoe adventures in Quetico Provincial Park, Atikokan, Ontario, Canada (1993/1999); led Grand American camping adventures (2000); lived at Paramahansa Yogananda's SRF Ashram for 5 months (see the film "AWAKE"), formerly worked in titanium welding at Agilent Technologies, formerly worked in Winery industry in Marin County with Kendall Jackson in California; Surfing and Meditation continued for several years in California, British Columbia, South Korea, Yoga training in California 1999-2000.

Between 1994-1998 - Brian completed his own adventures with motorcycles. His motorcycling marathons took him across the United States and central/western Canada, while traveling solo over an astounding 24,000km in 60 days! Brian endured 900 mile/1300km average days in the motorcycle saddle and apparently loved every minute of those adventures.

Today, he has given up motorcycle adventures altogether, but finds an outlet for his enthusiasm in outdoor recreation while bicycle touring and micro-blogging about those experiences on his mountain bikes.

While employed as an English teacher in South Korea, Brian has became an advocate for bicycle touring on his mountain bikes. The Korean-World blog originated from those small adventures in Korea, now expanded to cover his recent trek down the TransMongolian highway to the Gobi Desert, cycling 900km east through the Khentii grasslands and in 2012 crossing Mongolia in 45 days, 2500 kilometers 1553 miles. HimalayasX expedition Brian previously cycled across western China, the Taklamakan Desert, the northern Himalayas of East Turkestan Xinjiang/Uyghur Autonomous Region, the corrugated back roads and mountains of Kham Tibet. Brian successfully completed his 2011 mountain bike expedition with 3200 kilometers / 1988 miles unsupported, on/off road MTB adventure cycling.
Brian has completed his second mountain bike journey, MongoliaX expedition - Crossing Mongolia 2012, an unsupported mountain bike MTB expedition across 2500km of Outer Mongolia from Ulanbaatar to Altai Taven-Bogd National Park bordering China, Russia and Mongolia.


In 2013, as a sequel to a trilogy of cycle tours, Brian enjoyed a more leisure bicycle tour onboard his Koga-Miyata World Traveller seeing the northern tier of the United States and western Canada covering 3400 kilometers / 2000 miles in 30 days. This North American cycle tour was called Totherocktour. Enjoying the adventure of bicycle travel and every great conversation started while traveling on the road - has refueled his inspirations to cycle around the Earth. In 2013, while 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.


The second non-profit foundation is ETE.ORG - Education Through Expeditions, UK which supports educational outreach programs inside schools around the world. ETE connects explorers with students in the classroom, through an interactive online program in development (Beta).


Brian is researching support for a 18000 kilometer bicycle expedition across the Americas: North, Central and South America - ONE -Arctic to Argentina
