Here at Backroads we all share a spirit of wanderlust, that eternal desire to explore and find yourself in new and amazing places throughout the globe. We’re not the first to experience that longing. Many before us and many contemporaries feel just the same way. We love quotations that put into words just how we feel on many of our biking tours and hiking tours be it a European bike trip or a New Zealand hiking tour. No matter where you go, there you are J.
“My favorite thing is to go where I have never been.”
– Diane Arbus, American photographer
“When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.”
– Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.”
“Exploration is the essence of the human spirit.”
“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page”
“Keep close to Nature’s heart.”

“Great things are done when men and mountains meet.”
