The following companies have helped towards getting this whole scheme off the ground and enabled me to carry on with my planning. Thank you. If you would like to discuss how to get involved from this side please do get in touch.



I would like to thank Gareth Evans at Qantas (ably supported by Carmen De Marino) for agreeing to cover the cost of my flights plus the transportation of my bike and trailer to and from Australia. His speed in agreeing to this made it all the more possible for me to put so much time into the planning. It also meant that I had to do it!!


To Olga for the initial design of the site. Mansour for helping me understand how everything works - good luck at Cambridge University, and to Dave and Tim. Thank you all for your patience.

TR Bearcom (A Division of TR Pty Ltd) Australia:

Thanks to Dave McTaggart and Rebecca Ross at TR Bearcom, part of TR Telecom, the appointed global service provider for Iridium Satellite based in Melbourne with an office in Darwin, for the supply of a satellite phone AT NO CHARGE.

CBL Electric Vehicles

Thanks go to John, Chris and Liam for their help, patience and time (lots of it) in putting together the light weight box for my trailer. Not only are they good at making boxes (this was a one off - so thank you) but they also make the new ALL ELECTRIC Nissan Cabstar. Check it out at:
