We are Huw and Carolyn Thomas – ex-journalists turned TEFL teachers. Our home is in Cornwall, although we’ve spent the last couple of years teaching English in Portugal.
This will be our most ambitious tandem ride yet but not our first big trip. In 2004-5, we cycled about 6,000 miles around the coasts of France, Spain and Portugal.
We met in Hampshire , where we both worked on local newspapers. We moved to Cornwall in 1997 and married in 1999. Huw joined ShelterBox in 2006 to manage the charity’s publicity & fundraising, later sending Carolyn to Pakistan as a ShelterBox Response Team member so she could report on the deployment for her newspaper!
BIKE, HISTORY & DIARIES

It would take up too much space to list everyone here who’s helped make our challenge possible but this journey would not be possible without the support of our sponsors Altura, the BA Great Britons programme – and all our kind hosts from Rotary and the cycling network Warmshowers.
