Le pedalistan - Clotaire Mandel

Le pedalistan, or a bike journey without returning date or particular ambition more than cycling across every single continent and to see the biggest slice of this planet as possible. 
Here is a website to share stories, photos, thoughts and podcasts.

The cyclist, a 31yo french bloke who hardly stand still. With a endless curiosity I keep crossing borders and share a snap of the world my senses perceive. 
Here is a bit of myself, but mainly what I've encountered.

A little help : 

Never against a little help to keep rolling. Everything I do and share is freely shared and I do it for the pleasure I got out of it and to give back a tiny bit of what I've received.
But if envy and possibility exist, a little help is never too much. It helps to keep riding, paying visas, fixing bike and replacing what's need to be.
