Rhythm of the Miles

Douglas Whitehead is riding his bike from England to India and in his latest post, he’s getting used to the rhythm of the miles and enjoying the silence.

The weather was glorious and the rural French landscape was idyllic as I cycled along the banks of the River Meuse. The light had a sort of special haze to it that seemed to intensify and magnify distances, but what really stood out was the all-encompassing silence

When we toured Alaska, for hours on end all we heard was our breathing, the bike, and Nature. Tuscany, Spain all beautiful but not as remote or quiet.
