One Year on a Bike

One Year on a Bike


O livro "One Year on a Bike" retrata a jornada desafiante que Martijn Doolaard fez de bicicleta de Amesterdão a Singapura. À medida que folheamos as páginas deste livro, somos levados numa viagem por culturas díspares e paisagens contraditórias. Uma viagem desafiante que nos faz apreciar ainda mais a ideia de slow travel.  

”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.”
