Turns in the Road
We are joined by Harry Shepherd, a cyclist and environmental campaigner from England.
Today, Harry talks about what got him into cycling, his passion for the natural world, and an eventful journey across Europe during 2020. The trip formed part of the Team Townend Challenge, an annual cycling sportive held in the Lake District in memory of Niggy and Christian Townend, two cycling brothers who were killed on their bikes in 2010. Harry helps to organize the event with friends of the brothers each year.
When not on the bike, Harry works in environmental communications, promoting the work of organizations dedicated to protecting the natural world.
You can learn more about Harry on his website at FollowTheShepherd.uk or Instagram at HarrySheph.

I’m on a tour around the world and on days where you feel that the bike isn’t moving as you want it to, then this podcast inspires me to push harder and get to new places.
Thanks for the effort that WS puts into this
So often when listening, I hear ideas, expressions, feelings, experiences and philosophies that truly resonate. We often think community building ends with the end of our tour. Tahverlee ensures that building continues. The community of bike tourists and hosts continues to expand in the time of global pandemic. Thank you Tahverlee.
Soul energizing listening to others cycling voyages
This podcast is a gem for any cyclist who has or plans to voyage on two wheels for the first time or an across-the-world journey. It is a melting pot of people sharing their unique and soul transforming experiences of discovery and adventure by traveling to new countries on two wheels and meeting open arms and life time experiences along the way. Thanks for the listening enjoyment; it has been great fuel to look forward to my next journey on the road.
