tour of hope

a tour of human spirit & survival with all of the ups & downs. living the life of bikemike straight from the horses mouth.

Alcoholic life: For years my lunch was a bottle of vodka. No change to that habit the first time I met with Mongolias Prime Minister in 1994. Picture portraits the occasion, I was complimented by many locals for being the first person having put a smile on the PMs face.

A true story of hope and faith set with Copenhagen as its backdrop. A journey to hell and back, through trial and tribulation — this is not your average tour. Through a lifetime of adversity, plagued with addiction, substance abuse and illness. From a dysfunctional childhood to becoming Bike Mike – one powered by a mantra I once adopted and have lived by ever since — “not without the bike”.

Experience a life-long rollercoaster in a matter of hours, one which saw me find my inner peace, quieten my monkey-mind and discover an instrumental tool in the fight for survival. With strong social commentary and problem solving at its core, this tour is ideal for the world-traveller wanting an experience with a point of difference, one that sees beyond the everyday. You wont find a tour like this anywhere else. Here the focus will be on the personal lifestory of Bike Mike, not the story of Copenhagen. The tour will stop for storytelling at places important to Bike Mike’s rocky journey.

A richly woven story of human spirit, adversity, letting go and moving on. Slow down, take a breath, see the world differently. Feel inspired to rise above whatever life throws at you.
