On Your Bikes

This blog is the story of our bicycle journey from the UK to New Zealand.

It’s likely that most people reading this will already know who we are.  However, just in case: Martina, originally from Buncrana, County Donegal, Ireland, and Nigel, originally from the Southwest of England. We live in London and about 4 years ago made the decision to cycle from London to Auckland in New Zealand to discover the world from a different perspective – and it’s finally here.

April 2nd, 2018 we departed North London on heavily-laden bikes, which despite being relatively good cyclists, was a new experience. Exciting and scary – but without a doubt the biggest adventure of our lives!

The map above is a general indication of where we are in the world.  For a more detailed update of our current location view the latest map under the Trips tab or alternatively sign-up to receive updates.
Maybe we’ll meet you somewhere en route?!


We are currently in New Zealand.

      Thanks Marshall. It’s certainly something different from city life, but we are loving every minute of it. This time last year we were in Hungary with Eva’s folks, so it’s amazing how much ground you can cover in a year! Hope all is well with you and Wendy.
