A Pick-A-Path Bicycle Tour: Meet Indiana June

Indiana JuneA bike tour can be full of decisions. Should you pick the dirt road or the city route; should you shelter from a storm in a hotel, or hide out in your tent?

Most of us make these decisions on our own but today we heard about Indiana June, who’s going to let everyone else – that’s you! – call the shots for her bicycle tour.

On August 6th, Indiana June will load up her bicycle with four panniers and a tent, and take off for a bicycle tour.

She’ll be on the road for at least 3 months, maybe as long as one year, and the public will be able to vote on all the important decisions that come up along the way.

We asked her why she choose this particular format for her bike tour:

“I literally wrote down a list of all the things I love in life and then came up with a way to combine them all at once. I love spontaneous travel, I love meeting new people, I love telling stories through written and spoken word as well as through sketches and paintings and of course I love cycling from place to place at my own pace.”

“I always remind myself that life is about the journey, not the destination – now it’s time to put that philosophy to the test,” she says.

Indiana June is no stranger to quirky ways of travelling. In 2007, she did a 20-country roadtrip through Europe in a purple ice cream van.

And in case you’re wondering about that name, no, Indiana June isn’t her real name. She’s actually Diana Tansey but a fat-fingered customs official once entered the name ‘Indiana June’ into his computer, giving Di the inspiration for her on-the-road character.

      Hey Jay, anywhere in particular you recommend for Irish cycling? I need to put two options up to get the ball rolling. I cycled the grand canal to Kildare on the weekend and that was stunning. Only one puncture the whole way!

    I used to read books by some guys called Ian Jackson and Peter Livingstone. Periodically through the books, most likely at the end of chapters, you would have to roll the dice and see which page they would send you to. This meant that even if you read the book 10 times you would have a different story every time.

    I awlways thought movies should be like that now.

    Your bike trip sounds like an extension of this idea. o how will people get to vote, will you have a poll on your website for people to vote where you have to go next? What if nobody votes?

      Hey Surya, that’s exactly how it works. It’s a new style of travel blog, a bit like the ‘choose your own adventure’ books we read as kids. Each important decision is in the hands of the public. The website collates votes, and this trusting kiwi does what’s asked of her, publishing stories, photos, paintings, drawings and video along the way.

      I just put a poll up on the Indiana June facebook page asking what people think should happen if it’s a tie or nobody votes. The winning response so far is ‘ask a random stranger.’

      The voting starts on July 25th at http://www.indianajune.com but you can ‘like’ the facebook page and keep updated with the journey too: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Indiana-June/187212834659962?ref=ts

    While we have summer long days here, why not go to Kerry to the furtherest point (from Dublin) Derrynane where you will meet the world and the best of people. You might end up spending one of your three months in that area, such is the variety of life there in August. Plus you wouldn’t be stuck for somewhere to stay… (t can be arranged)

Singapore’s multiculturalism is another drawcard; Chinese, Malay, Indian, as well as Western impacts can be seen anywhere from architecture to food; creating a remarkable melting pot!
