Steph JeavonsA living legend, true adventurer and inspiration
Steph Jeavons is an author, journalist, and adventurer who just (April 2018) completed a solo around-the-world (RTW) trip that took her to all 7 continents. A world first. The journey lasted a few days short of four years, during which she logged 53 countries and more miles (over 74,000) on a 250cc Honda than anyone who’s come before.
Born in Canada, she’s lived most of her life in Wales and considers it home. Even before learning to ride a motorcycle at 21, Steph Jeavons was unconventional, leading a successful school “uprising” to allow girls to wear trousers in the winter.
Prior to starting her RTW adventure, Steph Jeavons worked conventional jobs in accounting and Human Resources; and ran an off-road motorcycle school before leading desert motorcycle tours in Morocco. Unwilling to stay still for very long, she is currently planning to lead the first-ever all female motorcyclist trip to Everest Base camp in 2019—barely a year after completing her RTW.
As if riding RTW isn’t enough of a challenge, Steph made regular blog and vlog posts on her web site (www.onestephbeyond.com) and authored her first book, “Embrace the Cow: How to Ride Around the World on a Budget” in her “spare time”.
She also got caught in a Himalayan landslide on the highest motorable road in the world; rode Rhonda (her Honda) on Antarctica; visited, in turn, the hottest, driest, wettest, and coldest places on the planet; and graciously turned down six marriage proposals.
