Marco and Aurelie, 421Adventure

Everyone needs to live for today and not wait for tomorrow.

In today’s LEGEND LIFE STORY interview I will be sharing my interview with Aurelie and Marco, also known as 421adventure who are cycle tourers and adventurers. 421adventure stands for 4 wheels 2 hearts 1 world and it’s probably the best description of their philosophy to life and how they travel.

Their bike touring adventure started in Helsinki on the 27th of April 2018 with the goal of finishing in Singapore. They nearly reached their and after more than 33,000km they finished in Thailand. Now back in Europe they are touring around France and Spain waiting to embark on their next epic journey. To date they have have been on the road for 1,079 days covered over 34,945 kms by bike and travelled through 29 countries.

Not only are their journey’s epic adventures they are also a way to raise awareness about the power of the bicycle and to fundraise for two admirable causes: 88bikes and Wheels for Wellbeing.

In our interview we discuss about what you need to know for full time cycle touring, their epic journey, the places they have travelled and how anyone can give it a go. They talk about how everyone needs to live for today and not wait for tomorrow and what living a legendary life, your best life means to them. Their advice to other’s over 40 who may be viewing turning 40 negatively and three life lessons they have learned in life.
