About Codey

Hello, fellow adventurers and welcome to my world on two wheels! I’m Codey Orgill, and for more than a decade, I’ve been exploring the globe atop the humble bicycle. My journey into the heart of adventure cycling started with nothing more than an ill-fitted road bike and makeshift gear tied up with seatpost clamps and zip ties. From those early days of simple improvisation and a relentless spirit, my cycling endeavors have blossomed into sophisticated expeditions that span continents and cultures.

Born from a modest setup and an insatiable curiosity, my adventures have taken me through breathtaking landscapes, bustling cities, and remote paths less traveled. Each pedal stroke has not only carved a path across the earth but also deeply etched memories and lessons into my heart. These experiences are the bedrock upon which I built Cycle Travel Overload. This platform is more than a blog; it’s a repository of adventures, insights, and a beacon for those yearning to explore the vastness of our planet from the saddle of their bike.

My Bicycle, My Muse

My passion for cycling encompasses every facet of the experience — from the thrill of a new ride, the meticulous planning of gear, to the joy of sharing stories from the road. The bicycle has been a constant companion through my life, shaping my childhood dreams and fueling my adult escapades. It’s not just a mode of transport; it’s a vehicle for freedom, discovery, and personal growth.

Inspiring a Million and Counting

Through Cycle Travel Overload, I’ve had the privilege of guiding over a million souls on their journey to find the perfect steed for their adventures. There’s an indescribable joy in helping others unlock the joy of bicycle travel — from picking the right bike to navigating the nuances of long-distance touring. My mission is simple: to inspire as many people as possible to see the world through the unique lens of a bicycle adventurer.
