In Episode 43 of Bike Tour Adventures, I have the chance to speak with Belén Castello and Tristan Bogaard. After something like 3 years on the road, Belén and Tristan were forced to stop, as so many of you were. Instead of just waiting for everything to get back to normal, they devoted their time to putting the finishing touches on their coffee table book titled, “Bike Life”. I’ve had the pleasure of being able to read through the book and it accomplishes something that so many novels fail to do. With beautiful pictures to accentuate very descriptive text, the book makes you want to drop everything and jump on the bike.
