About Me


Currently on a bicycle tour of USA visiting 48 states covering more than 10,000 miles (more than 16,000km). Part of my tour is the Trans South Dakota Race; a 750 mile (1,200km) mountain bike race across South Dakota.


I'm traveling, mostly cycling right meow.
Greetings. My name is Benjamin Carlsen Henzgen, and I usually go by Euc for short.
I bicycle a lot, so I'm rarely at home. I don't own a car, and use bicycle to travel most everywhere.
I've made many trips bicycling across USA, and also bicycled a large loop around Australia covering 14,134km.
I'm departing Seattle on May 1st 2018 to embark on a 10,000 mile tour of USA visiting 48 states.
Within this tour I'll be competing in the Trans South Dakota Race July 21st; a 750 mile mountain bike race.

*I don't eat chocolate, lollies, candy, ice cream, sweets or desserts.
I eat anything else. Yes; weird foods, all fruits, vegetables, meats, seafood, spicy, and I've even tried more risqué foods such as crickets, larvae, offal, and eyeballs of many different species of fish. Respectfully, please no chocolate or candy. Thank you. I'm very grateful for any other food I receive.

Peace and love y'all.


The glass is half full. And I've already had two glasses.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I once had someone surf my couch for six weeks. He was from Togo and spoke very little English, and I speak very little french. He ended up moving into an apartment next door. One of many very awesome couchsurfing experiences.
