Bicycle Junkies Elmar & Ellen

Living the dream. Cycling addicts. Nature lovers.

It all started…

In December 2003. We fell in love and thought bicycle touring would be a good way to travel. Our first trip was all about rain, only 5 degrees celsius, too much weight, not the right gear, flat tires… we loved it! From that moment on we spend every holiday in the saddle and did a lot of bicycle touring around the world.



Here ‘comes the monkey out of the sleeve’… Forgive us our ‘Dunglish’, we are Dutch and we’ll probably throw in a few Dutch sayings here and there, which make completely no sense! But, feel free to correct us! We listen to ‘Fietsjunks’, ‘Bicycle Junkies’, ‘El & El’ or just ‘Elmar & Ellen’.
