“Wildlife is just one aspect of the vulnerability we can experience while traveling on a bicycle. The weather, the traffic, the bureaucracy, the regulations, the people all can either be experienced as obstacles or as openings. Depending on your approach and mindset. Accepting the difficulties is the smoothest way to go forward, there is always a way to go around them and turn a bad situation into an amazing experience or story.
This is why when planning a trip I only choose the A & B points and leave what is in between to the unknown. I enjoy venturing into the unfamiliar. It is precisely this state of vulnerability which allows you to experience life with all your senses.” - Tom Calcagno’s submission for #DETOUR.
