Hi. We’re Bryony and James. We like to ride bikes. For the last few years we’ve raced on the road, on the velodrome and for James a little bit of cyclocross too. We also play the brilliant sport of bicycle polo. As well as riding, we both coach junior track cyclists at our club. Between us, we have 13 bikes in our basement.
As well as riding bikes, we are both scientists. James graduated with a masters in Biochemistry in 2014 and Bryony is graduating with a PhD in Genetics in May. As is common in science, we both want to travel and work in labs in other parts of the world.
We’re not exactly sure who came up with the idea to combine travel with biking, but it stuck, and for the last 6 months we’ve been planning a trip to take us from New Zealand to Europe by bike.
