Pedaling Podcast

John decided to take on a 20,000km bikepacking from Auckland to London and en route he plans to talk with cycling industry, enthusiasts, athletes and other unique stories along the way. Follow along the journey as he crosses New Zealand, Australia, Asia, India and into Europe.


episode 1: Sami Sauri - Stories Through a Viewfinder

When I first decided to take on this trip, cycling all the way home, I wanted to find a way to showcase the trip, to create memories and inspire other people to do the same thing.

As part of the creative side of the trip, I wanted to reach out to likeminded cyclists out there, crafting and creating stories on their journey.

Sami gave me an insight to storytelling that I hadn’t thought of, and has since inspired loads of creative ideas. It’s interesting to hear her perspective on visualising the work she does day to day.

Listen to Sami Sauri share her experiences, how she got to where she is and how she finds ways to share herself and work with the world.

Pedaling Podcast is a show bought to you from Australia as I begin my cycle back home to Britain. I’ll be Pedaling 20,000km over a year with a mission to discover cycling stories across the world. I'm finding my own journey at the same time, understanding what drives me to cycle by asking others the same question.
