Well, suppose its time to lay out my summer on here! I'll be flying down to Singapore in a few weeks with my bicycle. From there I'll re-assemble it (have to disassemble it for the flight down) and will be cycling 5000km from Singapore to Macau! Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and China in all!
Right now I'm still figuring out routes and whatnot, but honestly most of it will be planned on the fly by the seat of my pants!
This is the bike I'll be doing the tour on. Still some modifications to finish like removing the dual-drive and adding a Campy triple in front, replacing the chain and adding a different seat (mesh, much more tolerable in the summer heat of Southeast Asia!) and oh so much more.
Anyways, enough of this for now. More to come later!

Dirt road in rural Xinjiang Province in western China. This was taken somewhere near a town called Maket (bad spelling I'm sure, honestly don't know where it is on a map other than somewhere along the edge of the Taklamakan desert...)

Can't wait for this road to be finished with the reconstruction and the problems in Pakistan to clear up a bit again. This is the Karakoram Highway leading towards Passu and 'Cathedral Ridge' which is one of my favorite mountains and one of the most beautiful places I've ever been.
Going through my archives for the first time in what feels like a year and finding lots of little gems like this one. It is from last July in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Image was taken from the top of my hotel in Sadaar Bazaar near sunset
