‘GTFO’ IS PROBABLY BEST EXPLAINED BY OUR FEATURE
. is an acronym for ‘Get The **** Out’, and possibly a phrase you’d be tempted to use when your six-yearold makes a noise during Paris-Roubaix afternoon.
// But it also adequately describes that most undervalued division of cycling – the touring adventure. // The adventure has no distance, time or deadline. It has one mission: to get out, get off the grid, and
get exploring. // AND ON A BIKE, YOU CAN ‘GET OUT’ MORE EASILY THAN MOST. // On a bike you feel the ruts of a road, the smoothness of the tar, the wind in your face and the smells of the world you ride through. With just a backpack, panniers and some planning, you get to escape from the grind. // YOU CAN TRAVEL GREAT DISTANCES, AND GO TO PLACES NOT ACCESSIBLE BY CAR OR ON FOOT. YOU GET TO TEST YOUR SPIRIT, AND LEARN A FEW THINGS ABOUT YOURSELF. // You can ride through the mountains of Boliva, travel through Europe, or head out on the endless roads of the Karoo. You choose the journey. //
IT DOESN’T HAVE TO COST MUCH – you can tailor your adventure to your time and finances. BUT YOU NEED TO DO IT.
