Born and raised in London, has been to university, lived for a year in the south of Germany and spent a summer living and working in China. In 2016, he left his job at a cycling start-up company to begin travelling the world. He aspires to learn as many languages as possible, loves cycling and has been a vegan for the past 3 years. Chris's favourite thing about living life on a bicycle is having somewhere different to sleep each night and waking up each morning to a whole a new surrounding
Has always had the travel bug, however through her teen years she struggled with anorexia and depression, but her dream of travelling the world helped her get through this. She has travelled to many different parts of the world but is hoping to see them all from a bicycle saddle. She disliked the busy city life routine so with Chris she made ambitious cycle-touring plans. One of her hopes for the website is to raise awareness around mental health and eating disorders as well as inspiring others to try the bike-touring life.
As a team
Chris went to meet Katie for the first time at her small flat in East Finchley in September 2015, after having only spoken online for a couple of weeks. They started living together almost straight away, but soon moved to Chris' parental home for several months to save money. London life may suit some people, but it wasn't for them. Plans were made to bike around Europe, starting in Croatia, and so their first adventure was born. The rest, as the cliché goes, is history.
We are currently only funded with the money we saved during our time in London; we hope to make enough money from this site and YouTube to keep us going on the road! We love the sustainable nature of our lifestyle and hope we can continue for as long as possible, we always cook vegan, but often ask bakeries and greengrocers for any produce they are going to throw away. For us, pedal-power is by far the most rewarding way to travel the earth and we love hearing from others who are doing the same.
Why we decided to bike around the world
After a few weeks in Croatia we fell in love with bike touring, biking to places gives us a sense of freedom and adventure we have never got from anything else so we just decided to keep going. Why go back when you're having the time of your life?
