🇬🇧 Today I cheer in her honor 🚲. For the happiness that it produced me. And I cheer for the bicycle in general. For mine, yours, and all the bikes in the world. I hope for the near future to be full of bikes and more of us will be enjoying this wonderful invention 🍻.

@vamospedaleando🇪🇸 Lamentablemente, me robaron a Maca una hora antes de emprender mi rumbo de Barcelona a Madrid 😭. Me han quitado mi medio de transporte, mi herramienta de trabajo, mi compañera, mi diversion, mi terapia anti estrés, anti tristeza, y anti toda sensación negativa que exista. Me da tanta rabia y tanta tristeza al mismo tiempo que ahora no siento ninguna de las dos, solo siento impotencia. Solo puedo decir que volveré a la ruta, no se cuando, ni como, pero seguiremos pedaleando ✋🏽❤️

🇬🇧 Sadly, my bike got stolen one hour before leaving from Barcelona to Madrid. I am so mad and so sad at the same time that I don’t even know what Im feeling. All I have to say is that I will be back on the road. I don’t know when, or how I will do it, but I will continue cycling around ✋🏽❤️

Learning about camping and buildings in Porto, Portugal | @vamospedaleando

You better select a good spot to camp. 😂😂 ==> #Repost @vamospedaleando[ESP] ✌🏽Segunda noche en Porto 🇵🇹. Mismo parque pero distinto lugar ya que no quería seguir compartiendo espacio con las ratas que estaban a mi lado la noche anterior 🐭🤣 …

[ENG] ✌🏽Second night in Porto 🇵🇹. Same park but different place. This time I didn’t want to keep sharing my space with the rats that were roaming around the night before 🐭🤣

[ESP] 🏫 Edificios de Porto. Mi experiencia con esta ciudad fue bastante extraña. La carretera para entrar estaba demasiado transitada 🚗, lo que hizo que entrara a la ciudad sin ganas de nada 😪. No tenía donde dormir y tenía ganas de naturaleza. Sin embargo, me quedé 3 días y 4 noches y terminé encantado. Me fui decidido a volver y vivirla mejor 😍. Espero que sea mas pronto que tarde.

[ENG] 🏫 Building in Porto. My experience in this city was very strange. The road to get in was very busy 🚗. That made me dubious about my stay and I felt like I didn’t want to be there 😪. However, I stayed 3 days and 4 nights and ended up loving it 😍. I left wanting to go back, hope its sooner than later.

Biking to Kostanay, Kazakhstan | @bike_jamboree | #ScoutsPoland

#ScoutsPoland @bike_jamboree in #Kostanay #kazakhstan. It is great to find Scouts and supporters in cities they visit. Follow @bike_jamboree and FB page. ==> #stage6 #etap6 #bikejamboree

🇬🇧We’ve just started! How spectacular it was!🚲

In Kostanay we were staying at the parish of the Assumption of the Blessef Virgin Mary. We were hosted by the polish missionaries: priest Sławomir and sisters Joachima and Goretti. What they do is impressive! They build catholic community, help not only local people but also such vagabonds like us.

On Sunday we took part in the holy mass, meet the parishioners, got blessing from the priest and set off!

We couldn’t have thought of a better farewell comitee. Thank you! 😁😍

About #BikeJamboree Project. #ScoutsPoland

“Bicycle relay that has never been done so far. Around the World! Two years ago, when we organized the Bike Jamboree 2015, we travelled from Poland to Japan to finally come to World Scout Jamboree in Japan. We liked it, so now we are moving on. We will start at 27 May, 2017, to reach World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia by cycling for the next 2,5 years (July / August 2019) and then return to Poland. From Gdansk to Gdansk: 35 thousand kilometres, 34 phases/stages, 21 countries. Through the most beautiful areas of the northern hemisphere. Why? To promote Poland, to experience adventure, and to show how important scouting can be in the today’s world.  However, we do not invite only scouts to participate in our expedition. Adventure is waiting for everyone!”

“We want to show that Scouting is an extremely interesting social movement involving young, ambitious and unconventional people. People who can work together independently of the political situation in the world. They do not know prejudice against other nations or religions. They disagree with the world’s widespread inequalities and actively work towards positive changes in their environment. Scouting is the elite of today’s youth.”

This is a sample of some of their photos during first stages of #BikeJamboree. Poland to Kazakhstan.

O Castro Park: The Best Views of the City Vigo | @vamospedaleando
