There are plenty of ways to explore the world, but not all of them give you the sense of freedom and the strong thighs you get from seeing the sights from your bike. The first thing I ever fell in love with about cycling was actually a bicycle bell that I was given for my 13th birthday; it had the classic ting ting! sound that I’d heard in countless movies during my childhood, and I spent the rest of that birthday ringing it in my family’s ears over and over again.
I’d had a bike for years, but it was that bell that motivated me to get out and start riding every day - and I never looked back. But you don’t have to have the best bike bell in the world to fall in love with cycling, and especially not when your bike is the vehicle that takes you to the places you’ve always dreamed of going.So, why do I always tell people that the best way to explore the world is by bicycle?
