In this episode I chat to Andrew Rogerson AKA The Cycling Scouser about his epic charity fuelled bicycle ride from Shanghai to Liverpool in aid of the Anthony Nolan charity and specifically for a young lad called Charlie Fearns. We talk about the importance of social media, cycling uphill, bad Chinese food, being held at gun point and football hooligans of all things.
We chat with Australian/British adventurer, David Priddis about his love of short motorcycle trips and his 4-year overland trip around the world in two Land Rover Defenders. David talks about being a solo traveller, choosing the right gear, gadgets, broken clutches and being hunted down by armed border guards in Africa.
We chat with 4x4 overlander Paul Crittenden about his introduction to overlanding via the Mongol Rally and his 4 year, true circumnavigation of the Earth in his 1995 Land Rover Defender 110 Station Wagon. Paul talks about getting stranded in a remote Andean farming village for seven weeks, transferable skills from his pre-overlanding days and shifting paradigms.

In this week’s episode we chat with cycle tourist Jack Crisp. In 2014 Jack set off on an 18-month adventure heading south through the Americas from British Columbia to Patagonia. In this podcast Jack and I discuss the trials and tribulations of being a solo cyclist on an extended trip. We talk about trip intentions, social media and keeping a diary.
