The Next Adventure: Cycle Trekkers

Canada was amazing! Vancouver was amazing! But, for now, we are back in Sunny Perth, planning the next adventure.

Since we finished the France to China cycle tour last year, we have been itching to get back on the bikes and hit the road again. We have definitely come to realise that cycle touring is one of the best ways to explore a country. It puts you out there, right in the country, with the locals.

First we had planned to cycle across Canada, then this turned into a cycle trip across Canada and across the USA, which then turned into Canada, the USA and Mexico. Well, we finally decided, ‘screw it’ let’s just cycle around the world. So, next year, we plan to head back to Vancouver in Canada, to start our World cycle tour.

We want to take our time this time, no time restrictions, less restraints. We want to be able to explore the countries we visit, and stop when we feel the need to stop. For this reason we are planning the trip to take at least 5 years, maybe longer. Obviously, this is going to require a lot of money (hence the trip back to Oz). We also expect we will need to work along the way, which isn’t a problem at all. We’ve posted our proposed route on our new website – if you think you might be in an area the same time as us, or that our paths might cross somewhere along the way, then get in touch. You can reach us at

While we are cycling, we decided we would also do some research into our future dream, owning a hostel. This has been Michael’s dream for sometime, as for me, I’ve always wanted to own an eco-tourism business. We thought we could combine the two ideas and create a eco-hostel. So along the way, we will be researching different green businesses and hostels, to discover what works and what doesn’t work. We will be sharing this information on our new website, Cycle Trekkers, as well as sharing general cycle touring info, updates and reviews. I will still be posting travel and general stories on this site too (though admittedly I’ve been pretty slack lately) 🙂

Anyway, that’s our latest news! If you would like to share any tips, or get in touch then drop us a line, or comment in the comment box below.

Ciao for now xx

About Kelly Sheldrick

Life is awesome - make the most of it, while you can! I’m a yoga teacher in Bristol, UK and I teach Hatha yoga, Vinyasa, Yin yoga and Yoga Nidra. I’ve also completed a few long distance cycle trips and ran a few marathons and ultra marathons. Yoga has really helped to bring balance to my life - I’m quite an active person and I find it hard to stay still. Yoga helps me to stay grounded and gives me focus. It also helps me physically - from long distance running and cycling I have quite tight hamstrings, hip flexors, hip rotators and calves. Tightness in these areas can really start to impact on the lower back, creating lower back pain and can impact on the alignment of the pelvis and hips. Yoga has helped these right muscles reducing injury and discomfort. I have two websites, one for cycle touring and one for yoga. I also have videos for both. I offer a lot of online classes, both for runners, cyclists and beginners. I add a free Wednesday weekly yoga class on my site - follow or sign up to my email list to keep update. And if you have anything you’d love to see on my site, please get in touch. Thanks! Namaste! Kelly lo
