Just back from an epic journey. Steph Jeavons has ridden across the Atlas Mountains and in the Sahara five times. She has crossed the US coast-to-coast four times, got muddy in Wales with names like John McGuinness and, just once, nearly punched Carl Fogarty in the face! Steph also worked with Nick Sanders setting up his expedition centre in Machynlleth.

She left all this excitement behind to pursue her dream of riding her motorcycle to all seven continents setting off from the Ace Café London in 2014 – solo- arriving home with a tale to tell in March of this year
