About Cycling Through A Pandemic

Cycling Through A Pandemic features the stories and photographs of cyclists around the world who got away from Covid-19 and the endless news cycles. Finding a gap between lockdowns or when restrictions eased, they escaped for a brief moment into the vastness and peacefulness of nature on their bikes. These are stories of perseverance and the human spirit, spectacular landscapes and the pure and simple joy that riding a bike can bring you. We're marking this unique time in history with a physical hardback book and wanted to celebrate the incredible adventures that so many of us had in our home countries during the pandemic.This is the perfect opportunity to give back through cycling, a sport that has benefitted so many people during this difficult time. It has allowed us freedom, independence and a chance to explore our own countries. Whether cycling has helped us get to work, stay fit and healthy or been an escape, it's impacted many of our lives in a positive way.All profits from the sale of this book will be donated to World Bicycle Relief. WBR is a global non-profit and social enterprise that mobilises people in developing countries through the Power of Bicycles.Follow along on Instagram at @cyclingthroughapandemic

    1. Known as 'The Loneliest Highway' as it's located in one of America's most isolated regions, Route 50 in Nevada is a passage through time and geology as a desolate environment comes alive while you ride through it.

    1. We parked, we got off the bikes, we ate yesterday's cold pizza while we brewed mate, we crossed the first bridge and started pedalling. This transition of movements between the passive of the truck and the active of the bicycle is very similar to the sensation of taking the paper out of that chocolate

    1. The final leg of the journey. I felt emotional as I woke up and packed up for the last time. I didn't feel ready to finish just yet but the weather was turning for the worse and getting very cold. I reached the sign and downed a celebratory beer which warmed me back up and headed to my Airbnb, complete

    1. I was back on the main trail after the sunrise and headed towards the Kukas village, heading back home. I enjoyed passing through the farms along the ride, and rode back to where I started near home at back to Amer Fort.

    1. I was venturing deeper inside the forested area on the second day, really into the wild. I missed some of the main trails, and accidentally went into the leopard zone!


      Thankfully I met a forester and explained to him that I was lost in the jungle. Luckily there was not so much drama but I was offered

    1. I started from Jal Mahal on the outskirts of Jaipur, and headed towards Amber Fort. I had to start pushing the bike from the lake in the Nahargarh Forest area! I decided to stick alongside the walls that were built some 150 years ago, and ended up camping inside the jungle.
