In this episode of Bike Tour Adventures, I am speaking with Eva and Mari after they have cycled from Holland to China and beyond. After more than a year on the road, these two ladies have cycled through 22 countries and pedalled over 24,000 km (15,000 miles). In today’s interview, we will find out all about their motivations to travel, how they prepared for this tour, and talk about their dreams and aspirations.
