Two good friends of mine have published an eBook with beautiful images of their multi-year bicycle tour around the globe.
From their website;
"Bicycling Around The World’ celebrates bike travel and culture around the globe.
In 2010, we (photographer Paul Jeurissen and Grace Johnson) set off on a multi-year bicycle tour covering four continents. Wherever we go, we search out bike culture, dramatic landscapes and remote places. So come pedal with us through the icy Himalayas, the barren Pamir highway, tropical East Africa and the chaos of Dhaka in search of unique cycling images."
The - free - eBook can be downloaded via this link http://www.bicycletraveler.bicyclingaroundtheworld.nl/bicycling-around-the-world-ebook

I haven't been frequenting photography boards much lately as we have been busy with the publication of our photography periodical for iPad, DarkroomPro Magazine.
I just wanted to let you all know that we've moved from paid to a free pricing model that is supported by our advertising. In order for this to work, we need as wide a distribution as possible... so if you have an iPad, please feel free to download the application and read our magazine at no cost to you.
If you have any suggestions or comments, please feel free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can download the magazine from iTunes using the following link:
Happy shooting, and all the best in 2013!
