Our friend Honza Galla from AZUB was interviewing us about our trip around Slovakia in 2019. The article was published in bicycle touring magazine Cykloturistika 7/2019 and is available on recumbent.news in English (it is in the paid section, please consider to support his interesting project)
During our cycle trip around Slovakia I wrote a fairy tale – About a bear Misho with decayed teeth and about sheep Mishka who helped him. Our sons liked it so much I had to tell it almost every night for weeks :) After the return Evit edited it a little and together with Janko they drew illustrations for it.
I’m sorry, but I don’t feel I can translate it to English nicely, but if you want to see at least the illustrations, see the Slovak version or listen to the audio:
Already with two children we realized it would be nice to have a trailer for two. Now a third child is on the way and this will be a necessity. New 2-kid trailer is quite expensive and probably will not fulfill all our needs … so it’s a challenge for a new project :)
Why did we add an electric motor on Rusty and what were our first experiences cycling e-tandem with two kids… The article discusses also available options on market, reasons to choose the mid drive motor, programming of the BBS02 and practical tips which can be useful also for others :)
Since January 2018 we’ve been both at home :). Koloman was almost one year old and it was the time for a longer vacation. Italy was the winner destination and some friends joined us also. Mostly we traveled by car with Rusty waiting on the roof. But at the end we also enjoyed real cycle touring along the river Po. During one month we did 4000km by car and around 400km by bike… saw and experienced a lot. This is a “short” report… :)
Take off your shoes … let your feet breathe … feel it … be careful … enjoy!
It’s Christmas Eve. There are 6 people around the table but 7 plates prepared. The lone plate is not prepared for a nomad according to our tradition. In fact 6 nomads are sitting at the table and waiting till their guest comes back home – our warmshower… (Chrismas 2013, Coyhaique, Chile)
One year ago we started with hardening – cold water swimming: cold shower every morning, and swimming in cold water outside in winter. This is how it started…
