Arctic Cycler arrives in Adelaide – will you join?

Update 11.09.2016
We will be arriving in Wilpena Pound on the 12th or 13th of September. I don’t know of many people that will join us then, and so I propose to have a more flexible agenda. If you want to join us, let he know by calling our leaving an sms on +61467608086.

See you on the way or in Adelaide when I arrive.
As I know many have kept the arrival date in Adelaide free, that date will stay the same.

Jetty Road, Brighton, Adelaide

Jetty Road, Brighton, Adelaide

Exactly two years and two weeks after leaving Eindhoven on my bike, I will be standing on Brighton Jetty in the suburbs of Adelaide, Australia. You are welcome to join me there to celebrate the end of this life-changing world cycle trip. Furthermore, you are invited to join me cycling, driving or motorcycling through beautiful areas north of Adelaide in the two weeks before my final arrival in Adelaide. This will be a slow meander through some of the most beautiful parts of Australia at a pace that everyone can keep up with, and enjoy!

More keen travellers are welcome to join me earlier, travelling at a faster pace.

Dates:
September 14, 2016: Start meander to Adelaide at Wilpena Pound.
September 27, 2016: Arrival at Brighton Jetty, Adelaide, Australia.
