Explore Myanmar by bike is composed and maintained by Suzan Oudejans and Juul Slot. We met almost 30 years ago, fell in love with each other and started off a rather rocky lovestory that ended in the year 2000. After a pause of almost 12 years, in which we both became enthusiast travellers and cyclists, we met -and immediately fell in love again.
In december 2012, we undertook our first big cycling trip as a couple: we spent a month cycling around in the northern part of Myanmar. We loved the country right from the start. We made the resolution to come back quickly because we expected the country to change in rapid pace. It took us five years and several other bike trips to effectuate that resolution. In december 2017 we got on a plane to Yangon to spend four weeks cycling in the southern part of Myanmar. Again, this was an unforgettable experience.
With this website we want to inspire and inform other cyclists that consider Myanmar as a destination. It is a wonderful and beautiful country, with a friendly, funny and curious population that will surprise and overwhelm visitors that are willing and daring to open themselves towards whatever will happen. Just bike, relax and see. The adventures will come by themselves.
