The Crowe Rides Home

China to Nepal then beyond
By David Crowe
#632 - posted Sunday October 19, 2014 by Neil Gunton

"A cycle around India and Nepal in 2012\13 made a big impact on me. Seeing the Himalayas and Everest was a dream come true and riding my bike in amongst it all was even better. I had to go back to the mountains. Not long after getting home I started reading blogs and books about cycling through Tibet, it seemed logical to make Tibet and the north side of the Himalayas the main goal, seeing as I'd been to parts of the south side. I knew this was going to be my last trip for a while so started being a bit braver with my plans. Why not try to get all the way home to Scotland?" - read this journal
