Reviews of expensive gear is thoroughly and honestly rated.

By Cindy

Years of traveling brought me many different insights, philosophies and countries I needed to be (over 90 in total). I lived in Pakistan, went over 15 times to India and when I stopped cycling the world, that was after 50.000 kilometer through 45 countries, I met Geo. Together we now try to be more self-sustainable, grow our own food and live off-grid. I now juggle with the logistics of being an old-fashioned housewife, cook and creative artist loving the outdoors. The pouches I create are for sale on

Hello Cindy, I discovered your blog recently since I experienced kickbiking (1 month in fact) searching for informations. I love your blog and I found it very very helpful. I wonder how things are doing now for you ? Not so easy to travel as you did. Hope you and Geo are doing well.
Thanks a lot for all your advices given through this website.

Hi Philippe,

Good to hear that I could be of any help. Since I am married I am not kicking the way I was cycling. I chose now to have a life more self sustaining instead of moving.

That’s one reason why the kickbike came into my life: shorter distances but more intense activity yet similar lifestyle of camping, simplicity and campfires.

It still all fits on a kickbike.

We are in Hungary now and tours are easily done here. I guess in France too, or am I wrong (I hope I am)?

Geo and I are doing well, thanks for asking. I hope that you are well too. And… kicking pleasantly around.

Greetings Cindy


Hi Cindy, Thanks for your reply. Good to see you are doing well in Hungary, a nice country as I’ve been told and from what I’ve read.
Well in France there is a bit of hystery… There is a “couvre-feu” from 6 PM to 6 AM where I live, all day in some places (south east) and masks shall be worn in towns unless you are ok to pay a 135€ fine… If you plan to ride in France especially close to Tours, let me know I will be pleased to welcome you and Geo (I have a garden with hens around which are very gentle 😉 )

Hello Philippe,

Hungary is a nice country indeed. The countryside is still a bit more alive than in France, though here people tend to move to the bigger towns as well.

We have that strict laws here as well, the mask has to be worn. Or otherwise you get a fine. I don’t know how many fines a person can get though, once he is caught without a mask?

We are planning to have chickens as well. That yours are gentle I believe immediatly because I have never seen a mean chicken ; ) And, thank you for the invitation, though I am pretty sure Geo will not get on the kickbike anymore, as he did not like it that much.

Have a good day, greetings Cindy and Geo


Don't just stop here, I appreciate your thoughts too : )
