GIRLY GIRL GEAR FOR GUYS TOO
Every adventurer need to cover up those be the adventure panties once in a while, especially in the more conservative areas of the world. My choice of great pedaling pants are prana bliss capris. My first pair lasted through 1 and ½ years of continuous touring and never fell apart. The sun eventually left them too see through, exposing my be the adventure panties. So I bought a new pair. They shed light rain, dry quick, never wrinkle and cover my knees with a little bit of stretch. Great ¾ lengths pants for touring when wearing only your be the adventure panties just isn’t enough!

Number 10 Cyprus PEDAL
After pedaling the North Of Cyprus tip to tip it is safe to say that bicycle touring in Cyprus is a bicycle touring holiday. Accessible with int’l airports and traffic free secondary roads, it is easy to pedal the island for a two week holiday. Camping, cheap accommodation and beautiful castles abound.

Number 9 Japan PEDAL
WOW (womenonwheels) Wall cocontributor Sachi pedaled throughout Japan in search of wonderful food. Sachi can’t say enough about why she loves bicycle touring in Japan. Finding Sachi.com

TOP 1O PLACES TO PEDAL, PAUSE OR PUSH ON NEWSLETTER Vol.2 THE BICYCLE AMBULANCE Number 4 PEDAL Karakorum NEW at skalatitude.com Highway, Pakistan. I can’t say PROJECT
6 new updates this week on the WOW(womenonwheels) Wall

Having been fortunate enough to be born in the hospital in Cobourg, Ontario, Canada, the health of my mom and myself were taken care of with an ease that many women and babies around the world aren’t privileged to. In rural Africa, the human spirit continues to prevail against the odds in reducing child and women mortality rates. A bicycle ambulance (BA) which is a bicycle with an attached cart/stretcher is being utilized to transport birthing mothers and the ill to nearby facilities. I have always been a fan of simplicity and empowerment as a solution to community issues. In partnership with BEN Namibia, a BA only costs $500 USD and is being used and constructed locally. Many BA have been built already from donated bicycles, in partnership with Bikes For Humanity, a CA based bicycle recycling program. As I pedal towards Africa I just wanted to do something worthwhile while I was at it. The profits from my “Be The Adventure” tshirts that are available through skalatitude.com will be given towards a BA. Join the fun, share the news, tell your FB friends, tweet it or donate a couple of dollars to the project at skalatitude.com.
