Welcome to freewheelingtwo – hosted by Gail Day and Charl Heydenrych

Neither my partner Charl nor I are your average cyclist. I am 57; Charl 64. While Charl is merely fat, I am morbidly obese. In fact, I weigh so much more than a mere 100 pounds over ideal weight (the official definition of morbid obesity), that I probably fall into some untitled category!

We lust for adventure, the unexpected, the unknown. We want to “suck the marrow” before we are too old to do so. We want to live out the fantasy ...

We begin in Turkey May 3, 2014. Then head east to Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, China and points beyond.

Our "Current trip" will include daily snippets, weekly updates, a “worth a visit” section detailing tourist sites, a food blog and a cycle guide.

Our "Previous trips" include, in some cases, just a photo album; in others, a letter home; in some, a lengthy and detailed diary.

Join us for the ride...
