“I’ve never enjoyed a soggy camping trip so much! Thoroughly invigorated by hearing so many stories and travel tales, and meeting such smiling, boundless souls.”

“What an amazing weekend it has been! I was hoping to get tips and ideas, have questions answered and meet like-minded people. I got all that and much, much more.

I have come away feeling inspired, humbled, affirmed, elated, reassured, itching to go and above all I feel I have found my tribe.

A great group of people that get excited by the idea of moving on and exploring the world on a bike and are full of generosity and willingness to share.”
