Remembering Ian Hibell one year after his death
Here is a simple page all about my friend and hero, Ian Hibell (and his bikes!). Ian has been touring the world more or less continuously for over 40 years and is one of, if not the, most famous cycle-tourists ever! Ian is also famous for his book 'Into the Remote Places'. Enjoy the photos....Peru.
