OUR ROUTE AND STATS
On Friday 30th of September 2016 we left Amsterdam by bicycle for an unlimited world trip! For a long time we kept all options open and we had no idea when, how, for how long and where we would leave. This is the way we want to travel, the best things happen when you don't plan. At the beginning of June 2016 the idea arose to leave from home and we would use the bicycle as our first mode of transport. Three years later we travelled more than 35,000 kilometers on human power. We cycled to the end of the world, and then went all the way north. Discover here our route and the statistics we keep during our trip. And we keep a lot more figures!
