Loretta Henderson

Posted July 16th, 2010


What started as going to England to buy a bicycle has gotten out of hand for Loretta Henderson. A dozen countries later, thousands of peddle miles still beckon on the road ahead. A solo, female storyteller with a penchant for finding the hilarity in the mundane, Loretta will knock you senseless with her wisdom and wit as she perches high on Pandemic The Magic Bicycle’s seat and peddles around the world… or at least that’s what a paid friend said, seconded by her Dad!

Loretta’s musings can be found on her blog, Skalatitude.

Emma & Justin are two New Zealanders with bicycles and a tent, heading east from Santander in Spain towards Turkey, and eventually Russia or Central Asia through to South East Asia.

“After six years working in London, we were keen to travel for longer than a few weeks at a time and wanted to immerse ourselves in places that we visit. We’re not out to break any records but cycling seems to be about the right speed for us,” they say. You can read about their trip on their Rolling Tales website.

In 2005, Rick Gunn set out on a 3-year journey around the world that turned out to be as much a spiritual journey as a physical one. From the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, he pedalled through 35 countries and wore out 4 bicycles, before completing his circuit.

Rick now gives talks, inspiring others to see the world in a different light. You can listen to an interview we did with Rick.
