Kickbike USA


A new challenge was what I needed. Having tried several options -walking and cycling- I found the sweet spot, right wedged between those two: kickbiking!

The Kickbike was bought online while we were in Ecuador. We arranged it to be shipped to an address in Atlanta, USA. That was March 2020 and I am liking this way of transport, especially for shorter tours. Yet Geo and I tried to kick through several states in east of USA.

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

Hi Serge, we are not coming to Canada. We are back in Europe to be exact. It was not our plan and I think we must train a bit more before we can do such distances together ; )

Greetings Cindy and Geo


Hi Pius, bad to hear. Maybe we get old? I just assumed that kickbiking would be not a problem and for Geo it wasn’t but for me… it became a huge inflammation! I just could not stand anymore. But after this Corona circus, it healed well and I can do more than ever before (kickbike wise), so, it seems it is healed. I wish that happens to you too!

Best of wishes to you, hug Cindy


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