Clare & Gideon

We are Clare and Gideon, 2 cyclists from Worthing, on the South coast of the UK, who plan to kick off Clare’s retirement by cycling from our home to Australia, from April 2016 to whenever we get there. Actually, now we’re near to that destination, with time in hand, we’re inclined to continue east, and get home by going right round the world.

Indonesia is one of the places where they like to take selfies with us – all pull over! 

Cikarang, Java, Indonesia: Sumatra beat us! That coast road got so hilly we were struggling to beat 50km a day towards the end. We want to spend time in other parts of Indonesia, so, 500km from the ferry to Java, equivalent to a week late, we cave in and take a lovely day off in Krui, then an overnight bus to Jakarta.

So far approx. 435 days and 19722km ridden.
