I cycled 19000km Thailand to Ibiza with my partner. It was an incredible experience, fostering a more genuine understanding of who I am now as a person. Motivation for this trip was change, challenge, reassessment, fresh perspective, plus of course I love cycling! The physical & mental challenge I cherish, consciously cycling through some more demanding landscapes. All-round it was extremely positive & forced me to be a bolder person.
