We embark on our adventure on two bikes of Pilot Cycles titanium bikes, a top company from Nuenen on the outskirts of Eindhoven, the Netherlands. We chose the model PILOT VAMOS Pinion. PILOT bikes are made of the most indestructible and beautiful material: titanium. The VAMOS is made for long distances, great adventures, diverse conditions, to discover the most remote areas. And, not unimportantly, maintenance is limited to the absolute minimum! So ... Vamos !!!
