It's as though I am cursed to never feel content. I am always striving for something more, to experience new places, and push my boundaries generally.  

A Reluctant Blogger

I never intended to write a blog about my journey back to Australia by bike. I told everyone ‘No, the trip is for me I don’t want to spend my downtime updating a blog.’ 


There are solo female cycle tourers out there, but I did find them a drop in the ocean when looking for advice from women for women. So I’m hoping that stories from my experience can be helpful to others.

I am Lauren an average everyday woman in my 30’s who decided to cycle from the UK back to Australia. Despite having always been a very active person, I would never consider myself to be any kind of high-level athlete. However, in saying that I have discovered my slight pathological need to get a kick out of a physical challenge.

I’m fascinated by the boundaries humans can push and the mental process required for that. I’ve always found it interesting how a hiking trip could be a miserable disaster, yet in retrospect, you have fond memories of it. You could say I was drawn to human-powered adventures.
