Welcome to John Wilson's cycle touring site.

The site contains photos and details from the cycle tours that I have undertaken over the last 30 years. The tours have included most of southern and central Europe, South East Asia, and South America, as well as parts of Africa, the Caribbean and Central America.

Gallery

The gallery section contains a selection of photographs showing some the places, people, and creatures that I have encountered while cycling. There are some photos that were not taken while touring, but are either travel or cycling related.

Tours and Routes

The tours section has the route details of the cycling tours that I have undertaken. All routes show the towns and villages along the way, the daily distance covered in miles and kilometers, and the more recent routes show gradient profiles. The GPS routes of recent tours can be seen on Google Maps.

The site will be updated regularly so as more photos and tours are added the details will be shown in the News and Updates section below.
