Page Through the Journal
The BikeAbout riders wrote reports as they traveled, which were then posted in the Mediterranean Journey portion of the BikeAbout site. Near the bottom of each journal page, you will find this icon pair. The arrow that points to the left ("Back") will take you to the previous day's report. The arrow that points to the right ("Next") will take you to the next day's report, if one is available. If you are viewing the last available report, the arrow that points to the right will return you to the Mediterranean Journey home page. If you want to view a more in-depth report for that day, click "Read Rider Notes." The rider notes include more detail about things on the Fast Facts page and additional details about the day's journey.
These icons link to pages for each of the BikeAbout riders. The rider page includes a biography of the rider, links to reports written by the rider, and links to rider projects.
