Nomadik Adventure 2017 2017-02-22T09:59:58+00:00

THE BeNOMADIK PROJECT

The Nomadik team will be embarking on a 2,500 km+ bike ride, starting in Laos and ending in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The trip will be multifaceted, with showcasing the world’s first bamboo tricycle, as well as spreading awareness about bamboo as an eco-friendly, renewable, and flexible material. With bamboo only taking three years to reach a usable size, as well as regrowing quickly after use. Along using bamboo, the group will be planting trees throughout the journey, further committing to a more sustainable lifestyle.

Along with riding, the team will be taking every opportunity to laugh, love, community build, and interact positively with all whom they come in contact with. The sight of the bamboo tricycle alone already turns heads, but with a team committed to positive outreach, Nomadik Breno is bound to garner a lot of attention every kilometre of the journey.

One desired outcome from the trip is a realization of dreams, and acting as a moving force to help show people what can be done if you decide to act on the ideas you create. The Nomadik team invites anyone interested in joining the ride, be it for a few days, or a few hundred kilometres, to become a part. If you can’t join in the ride, the Nomadik team is looking for sponsors, partners, and anyone wanting to help promote and elevate this trip to join. Whatever skill, product, or inspiration you can offer, please CONTACT US and make sure to LIKE our Facebook page!

DAY 71 -73: Back to Satun - Thailand

In the middle of this week I reached the 5.000km mark with the bamboo trike (3.000km on this trip and 5.000km total).

Although it was a very special day for me, due to some personal issues, I wasn't able to celebrate nor make a post about it.

This trip has been an epic journey for me and I am very thankful for everyone I met and every moment I experienced along the way.

Unfortunately, to start another chapter in my life I must close the previous one, and the time to do so must be now. So I am, in parts, sad to have to "cut" short this journey, but I must return to where I start it and solve some personal issues.

To all my friends I would like to say THANK YOU for all the support and for your friendship. Don't worry because I am healthy and everything will be ok.

I am so happy to have accomplished the goals and objectives I set for this trip: 4 countries and 3.000km but, the most important of all, for so many new friends I have made and all I have learned along this almost 3 months on the road.

Tomorrow may be my last day cycling so I must make it special.

Big thanks and hugs to everyone that followed me on this journey!

DAYS 67-70: Langkawi - Malaysia

3 days "enjoying" the monsoon season and its heavy rain to visit my other "kid".

The bamboo trike has a "big sister"; a 40ft sailing boat that I spent 2 1/2 years rebuilding and living on it.

"She" needed some personal attention so I had to come over and give it to her.

DAY 65: La Ngu (110km)

BIG THANKS TO THE THAI ARMY AND POLICE!

Today was a challenging day but, at the end, another real proof that karma does exist.

Very late start (11:30am), rain, hills and a long day.

In most countries I've been so far, including my own (Brazil), every time we see a police road block we associate it with a very unpleasant experience. Now imagine a road block with six army soldiers,machine guns on their hands and at a small road in the middle of Thailand.

Well, as you can see in the photos above, my experience was great! I can tell you that, so far, all the Thai police and army personnel I met in the roads have been extremely helpful and I'm very grateful for that.

NOW THE GOOD KARMA PART: literally 3 minutes before I was "pulled over" at that road block, I ran out of water on my Camelback and had only 600ml left on my canteen. I was riding in the middle of a national Park, with very little people around, and still had another 40 km to go.

The army guys gave me 3 Liters of water, an orange Fanta, shade to rest and, most important, I really friendly conversation.

So if this is not good karma then I don't know what it is!

DAY 59: Pak Meng

Just got this great pic from my friend Pae วสันต์ เจริญอภิญโญ, while I was outside his shop at MarsTouring, that shows the moment that I received a phone call from the carrier company confirming that I have a “parcel” from Brazil to be pick up this coming Friday at Trang Airport.

Needless to say how happy I am and where I will be cycling tomorrow.

Very grateful to the special gift this trip brought to me!
