Clay is a heavy load yet still they are able to cycle carrying big loads of it on their van rickshaws.

Note: the van rickshaws frames have extra steel rebar reinforcing and the spokes are heavy duty – similar to motorcycle wheel spokes.

Leaving Dhaka via the Rocket boat

It was an overnight trip heading south towards Khulna. The cook served us a ‘proper English dinner’ (which included Yorkshire pudding) and we especially enjoyed viewing the surrounding countryside in the early morning mist.

In 2010 we set off on a multi-year cycle journey titled “Bicycling Around the World in search of inspiring cycle images”. The challenge will be to photograph the  diverse bicycle cultures, capture the experience of traveling by bike, and of course shoot new ‘Cycling Landscape’ images. You can follow our trip via this photo blog.
