Around the World on Two Wheels

French Quartet of Bicyclists Visit Bali on Round-the-World Journey


Radar Bali shares how the obsession of four French citizens to circle the globe by bicycle is nearing realization. The French quartet of cyclists has traveled across the American and European continents and is now traversing Asia, including the island of Bali.

The four: Brian Berger (27). Romain Nicolino (26), Alex Laine (24) and Robin Rietton (25) were recently encountered in the parking area of the Rambut Siwi Temple, one of the largest Hindu Temples in Bali, located in the western regency of Negara.

The group, who had pitched their tents in the Temple’s parking lot, had started their world-circling journey in September of 2011. As explained by Brian Berger, a former fireman and a member of the tour: “In addition to cycling, which is our hobby, we undertook this journey because of our desire to see the world and to surf the world’s beaches. Because of this, we always bring our boards for surfing.”

Nicolino added how the group had traversed Europe and America before coming to Bali, adding, “we visited the ancient sites of the Incas and Machu Picchu in Peru.”

The four, who hail from Chamonix-Mont-Blanc in France, have been friends since school days. Each gave up their respective careers in order to pursue their dream of travel.

Laine contributed that the route thus far has brought them from their native France to Spain and on to Portugal. From Portugal they flew by plane to Brazil in South America. Landing in Brazil, they traveled on to Peru, Bolivia and Chile. From Chile they flew to Jakarta from where they have traveled overland to Bali in the space of only one week. Laine told of how the group had purposely chosen Bali as a destination because of its reputation for natural beauty.

After Bali the group plans to visit Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar and Turkey. Tentative plans have them back home in France in September of 2012.
