Hey! I’m Lewi, a 30 year old Aussie traveller who has been exploring the world for the last 10 years.

It all started in 2011 when I finished high school and didn’t want to follow the tradition 9-5 path that everyone else was taking.

So I decided to move to France instead. I ended up staying there for 4 years.

Since then, my adventures have become increasingly more challenging, adventurous and remote.

It wasn’t until 2017 that I found my favourite way to explore the most remote corners of the Earth, a bicycle.

Why the bicycle?

 A bicycle is such a simple form of transport that can take you anywhere in the world…and relatively cheaply at that. 

It can be used to carry all the gear and food that you’ll need for long expeditions, can be walked when the terrain is too difficult or something goes wrong, and can easily be hidden when looking for places to wild camp and not be seen.

It can even be carried over mountains when you’re so remote that trails don’t even exist.

After riding down from Ecuador to Chile Ecuador to Chile, I decided that travelling by bicycle was my favourite way to travel.

Since then I’ve spent months climbing over the highest snow capped mountain passes in Kyrgyzstan and explored the untouched coastlines of Tasmania.

For the past 2 years I’ve been travelling around Australia in a campervan and exploring the more remote places on my Fatbike.

I’m currently cycling across Africa from South to North on a Year-Long bike tour.

Africa 2023

Bikepacking Africa Route 2023

In February 2023, I’ll be setting out on a journey that I’ve been dreaming about since I was a kid, crossing the entire continent of Africa!

I’ll be riding a bicycle with all my possessions through over 13 different countries across deserts, along rivers and through jungles.

My goal is to discover the most remote parts of Africa and share them with you!
