Age is Not a Barrier to Traveling by Bicycle
In today’s LEGEND LIFE STORY interview I will be sharing my interview with Peter Gostelow. Peter is a cycle tourer who has cycle toured more than 100,000km across 70 countries.
On his first major solo bicycle adventure between 2005-2008, what he called the Long Ride Home, Peter biked from Japan to the UK a distance of over 50,000kms. In his second major solo bicycle adventure, between 2009-2012, that he called the Big Africa Cycle he cycled from England to South Africa, travelling through 30 countries for a distance in excess of 34,000km.
In 2013 he returned to Africa and lived for 2 years in Tanzania, where he worked as a Teacher Trainer. During the holidays he continued to make shorter tours in East and Southern Africa.
In 2015 he completed his working contract and headed north from Tanzania, cycling through Kenya, Uganda, South Sudan, Ethiopia and Somaliland. The tour continued beyond Africa, going on to Oman and the UAE, where he finished in February 2016. Peter has now accumulated over 50,000km of cycle touring experience on the continent
In our interview we talk about how Peter got started as an adventurer. He shares what inspired him to undertake his two epic trips and what motivates him. Peter also shares what living a legendary life, his best life means to him, his advice to other’s over 40 who may be viewing turning 40 negatively and three life lessons he has learned in life.
