Why this middle-aged woman decided to ride a unicycle around the world

About Me

My background


Hi, I'm Kelli. 

I wasn't a sports star at school. But I did ride my bike (a normal bike with two wheels), everywhere as a teenager. 

I did some study, became an accountant, got a mortgage. And then got a life shock. 

My story


I almost didn't make it through 2015, and decided that in celebration of being alive, I was going to do 'something interesting' with my life

My adventures


That 'something interesting' turned out to be unicycling the world. 

Only I couldn't actually ride a unicycle.. 

Why I decided to unicycle the world

where am i now..

Work on your insides first

I had to shift from being an unfit, overweight accountant (with ZERO balance), to someone who can ride bigger unicycles, long distances. I had to understand how to shift my identity, which in turn changed my habits.

There was alot of internal work I had to do on myself, to get to the starting line for this.  It wasn't just about learning to unicycle...

During big adventure planning, it's easy to get bored and stale, and think you're not making progress (and actually not making progress). 

So why not throw an unexpected challenge into the mix? 

In October 2018, I rode a unicycle for 11 days, and 430 kilometres, the length of Taiwan.

Future Adventures

There's plenty more unicycle adventure training and preparation under way.

This year I'm heading off to ride Korea, and  Papua New Guinea.
