Summer Series: Cycling from Bulgaria-UK: Suzie Richards

In the 3rd and final Summer Series, Suzie Richards joins us to talk about her bike touring trip from Bulgaria to the UK. Suzie talks about how to go with the flow, rather than plan a cycle route. She gives tips about where to stay, what to pack and why choosing some less well known countries will leave you grinning from ear to ear.

You'll hear:

How Suzie ended up in a co-working space in Bulgaria in the middle of a pandemic

What Suzie did for food and accommodation along the way

If she was ever scared wild camping on her own

Why she was happy going with the flow and not having her whole trip planned

What she used to plan her route on a daily basis

The delights of cycling through Macedonia, Albania and Montenegro
