So I haven't came here much recently I've been real busy trying to finish my first year of university.
But im free now.
I thought I would take this oppertunity to talk about my new "goal".
I finish university in the summer of 2010, so my plan, is to start training now, and then when I finish university, to cycle around the world.
I'm not attempting to break any world records or do anything special, except promote the word vegan, and hopefully make the whole "vegan thing" more acceptable, if it makes even 1 person think differently then its worth a cycle right?
I have no experience at doing this type of thing, not do I have any sponsorship or even a great bike.
Although talking of bikes, as im not attempting any records i dont spose it matters if I have a road bike or a mountain bike does it?
Surely a mountain bike would be more suitable in certain areas of the world where roads can get a bit sketchy?
But thats the type of thing i'm going to need help with knowing about.
I just want to do my bit for promoting vegan ethics, and ive been thinking about going around the world for awhile now, so im finally putting my mind to it, starting some training and planning what im gonna do, as well as get talking to some influencial people hopefully.
Anyway I think thats about all, I heard it's also probably best to have a partner? Going alone can be dodgy for obvious reasons, and going in a pair is always best, or as some people have done i think they go alone but meet a mate in a car at checkpoints or something, any views idea or help from anybody with experience of this kind of thing would be MUCH appreciated, in the end I AM doing this no matter what, so the more information i can gather in the next two years will make it so much more workable for me, and hopefully good for veganism if it all works out?
im just aiming for the kind of "Well if you can cycle around the world, then it can't be that bad can it?" kind of reaction.
and yeah im pretty certain this has been done a million times before, although I couldnt find a vegan but im positive somebody vegan must have done this before, but these days people are getting more and more open minded so it could be just the right time to do such a thing.
Thanks in advance for anybody who cares to help . . . or join me?
maybe we could do an entire forum cycle around the world . . . . . . yeah ok maybe thats too far fetched but wouldnt that just cause a stir now?
Take care people and good luck with all your individual activities, your all amazing =]
