Heading off from the Ace Cafe on 23rd March. I plan on riding around the world on my CRF250L, a tiny budget, a two man tent and the power of social media!

Description

Steph will be avoiding all motorways and main roads and living mainly in her two man tent with only the things she can carry on her bike.

Steph's current budget presents a challenge in itself allowing her just £5 a day to spend on food!

"I hope to learn a few one-pot recipes on my travels. It will certainly force me to improve on my cooking skills and make good use of very few ingredients. I will have to be creative in all aspects of this journey to make the money stretch. I am relying on the kindness of strangers to give me the odd night in a comfy bed with a warm shower and a nice meal if I'm honest!"

Steph will become the second woman in the UK to make this solo journey. Elspeth Beard did it 30 years ago with no mobile phones and Internet to keep her it touch with her loved ones back home! We salute you Elspeth!

Steph - being slightly on the competitive side - would love to become the first Brit to include all 7 continents. This has only ever been achieved by 4 other people in the world (that we know of). Sadly though, making it to the Antarctic is looking like a step too far for her budget.


"The Antarctic would require another £6,000 minimum as it is extremely costly to get there and with only £10,000 to play with and no big sponsor, it would take a miracle!"

Stranger things have happened! Who knows what is around the corner for Steph and her trusty Honda but one thing's for sure, it's going to be one hell of a ride!

Steph also hopes to raise awareness for a great charity called Rally4Life which was set up by good friends of hers from Canada in 2009.

Rally4Life is a Registered Charity, created from the founders’ vision to combine the desire to participate in adventurous life-changing activities whilst bringing meaning to those exploits by giving back to those in need. See website for more information rally4life.org
