World Tour Galleries
Over the years, I've done a number of longer rides, mostly in various countries of the high mountains of central Asia, but also around the middle east, SE Asia & Africa. I've also done a number of rides in the far north of North America - Yukon, Northwest Territories, Alaska.
In this section, I've packaged some photos into slideshows with some background info and context. On the Ladakh (India), Nepal and Iran pages, there are also a few (soundless, alas) video clips that I hope people might enjoy).
This page takes off on something of a tangent. International bike touring is a huge topic, and there's no way this page can even begin to do it justice. This page is is a bit of a sampler, and a chance for me to share a little about some of my past roaming around on a bike. In the future, I may hive this off into an international site. I hope to keep the key focus here on backroads touring on Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast.

Click on the pics to jump to the slideshows, and a few video clips. The pages below are in chronological order, except for the Far North (Yukon, NWT & Alaska) and Eastern Indonesia pages, which I've stuck at the bottom as the few sometimes fuzzy photos predate my first digital camera, when I started to appreciate photography.
