    Steph Jeavons - Episode 21

    Rob & Mike have a fascinating chat with Steph Jeavons about all her adventures, and particularly about her newest book released on September 3rd.

    One woman’s solo journey to ride all seven continents on two wheels

    Welsh girl Steph Jeavons ran away to see the world. She wanted to see the sunset from every angle. She wanted to see an orangutan and a baobab tree. She wanted to become the first person to circumnavigate the globe and ride a motorcycle on all seven continents - and to sing karaoke on the way.

    Steph’s cravings for escapism manifest themselves in many ways throughout her life. The book begins in her late teens where she finds herself in prison by the age of twenty. She knows there is a whole world beyond that razor wire just calling out to be explored.

    Twenty years later, and armed only with a stern tone of voice she reserves for naughty dogs, drunk Turks, Iranian taxi drivers, semi-conscious British soldiers and Saudi truckers, she rides her trusty steed Rhonda the Honda solo around the world, to the highest, driest, wettest, hottest and coldest corners of the earth.

    This is a powerful and honest memoir written from the perspective of a liberated single woman taking on the world with a dogged determination to complete her mission at all costs.

    Home by Seven is told with honesty and wit and from a unique perspective.

Great podcast

Gloria and I are enjoying your podcast, Rob. It’s very informative and entertaining, like the evening briefings you gave on the tours we took in 2014 and 2018. The episodes about riding technique are great, and we liked learning about the history of your tour company, as well. We hope to join you and Gretchen on another tour soon!
