one year on a bike
from amsterdam to singapore
the title says it all: one man, one bike, one long ride, the adventure, the pleasure, and the pain—a travelogue and visual journey.
martijn doolaard traded the convenience of a car and the distractions of daily life for a cross-continental cycling journey: a biped adventure that would take him from amsterdam to singapore. leaving behind repetitive routines, one year on a bike indulges in slow travel, the subtlety of a gradually changing landscape, and the lessons learned through traveling.
venturing through eastern european fields of yellow rapeseed to the intimate hosting culture and community in iran, one year on a bike is a vivid chronicle of what can happen when the norm is pointedly replaced by exceptional self-discoveries and beautiful sceneries. doolaard shares the gear and knowledge that made his trip possible alongside the passionate curiosities that served as his impetus.
