WinVlad 2012 - An antidote to well planned and expensive adventure

On the night of the London Olympics opening ceremony I set off alone on an 8000 mile adventure from Winchester (UK) heading for Vladivostok (Sea of Japan). I had a bike purchased for 900 from Ebay. I had no special equipment other than stuff you could buy from an outdoor camping store.

I wanted to attempt the trip for two reasons; firstly to see how others perceive Great Britain whilst the world's eyes were on London and secondly to attempt to disprove the myth, abetted by bike and equipment manufacturers, that adventures have to involve expensive impractical bikes with every detail of the trip planned to the very last degree.

Here is my story..........
