We are Jude and Astrid and we have a dream to cycle from our home in Melbourne to Scotland, starting in April 2013. We don’t know exactly how long it will take, what we will encounter or our exact route. We have a sense of adventure, some touring bikes and a willingness to experience the world and it’s people. And the world’s hills.

I wrote that back in 2013 before we left and I want to leave it as a reflection of us and our dream. We did indeed cycle to the UK but ended our trip in London, rather than Scotland as during our travels we were lucky enough to get jobs working for London Ambulance Service. So after 2.5 years on the road we settled in East London and lived and worked there for about 2.5 years. As of June 2018 we are back on the road heading first north to Iceland and then south through Europe for the summer and autumn. We have loose plans to cycle back to Melbourne but are not yet sure of our route, how long, or wether we will pedal the whole way..
