Bike Tour Around the World Vicariously with 'Bunyan Velo'

From ocean shores in Mexico to glaciers in Alaska, photos and essays from the online publication Bunyan Velo take readers on a virtual bike tour around the world.

We met up with founder and editor Lucas Winzenburg. He was fresh off the trail of his own month-long tour across Europe. Winzenburg offered GearJunkie an inside look via the photos below, shot by adventurers around the world who seek out the simple pleasures of traveling long distances by bike.
