JaneBorn in Australia, Jane grew up in the great outoors and under the harsh Australian sun. Periodically a keen adventurer (i.e. between injuries), she is prepared to give almost anything a go, from open water swimming in the shark infested waters of Southern Australia to hiking in the Himalaya. {Ed.: Not as dangerous as it sounds, but what would a profile be without a little drama and embellishment.}

Jane currently resides in Yunnan Province in south-western China, where she is studying Mandarin. Jane is planning a cycling tour from Beijing to Melbourne, Australia commencing in August 2012. She will be posting to her blog, the Intrepid Cyclist, in the lead up to, and during, the journey. On this site you will find additional information gathered by Jane that may assist you in planning your own cycling adventure.


Also born in Australia, Geoff is very experienced in bush camping and touring. Geoff will be in charge of Base Camp operations for the duration of Jane’s cycle tour from Beijing to Melbourne. He will also be providing road support through the northern part of Australia.

  1. Hi Jane, it was an honour and a privilege to meet you near Windang Wollongong today. I had to do a U turn 2 Kms away to catch you up on the other side of the road but it was well worth it. You have taken on a big trek but you have the mettle for it. I look forward to reading your book! Try to keep safe and God Bless, David & Jannelle
