Gday

We’d like to introduce ourselves – Ken and Julie-Anne Fox (aka Travellingfoxes), we are two Aussies who have dedicated our lives to travelling and adventuring since 1986.

What started off as your usual weekend and monthly holidays expanded into a life style that far surpasses anything the we could have ever imagined.

We have been avid travellers/cyclists/outdoor enthusiasts our whole life, and prefer to be known and seen as healthy/active/multi-sport individuals, as we don’t like to pigeon hole ourselves into any one category. We participate in numerous sports such as triathlons and running of all lengths, as well as hiking/camping/overseas travel and backcountry adventuring. We have taken on numerous challenging adventures over the years ranging from multiple extended overseas backpacking trips, supported cycling tours, and unsupported backcountry hiking of the John Muir Trail (JMT) 23o miles (370km) in the Sierra Mountains, California, USA.

This current journey initially had us embarking on an unsupported (approx 4200 mile – 6760km) –  bicycle ride (coast to coast) across the northern tier of the USA which quickly grew to coast to coast and border to border (Canada to Mexico) 7000miles – 11265km, which ultimately ended up being (including all detours) 8958miles – 14417km.

This Epic Journey has had such an impact on us that we have decided to chase our dreams further and attempt to cycle onwards through Mexico to Central and South America.

So far this has been one hell of a Adventure and we wish to invite you all to swing your legs over your imaginary bikes, get your butts comfortable on the saddle and pedal along with us as the ‘Epic Journey’ unfolds.Thank you for being on this amazing ride with us!

Stay Safe

Ken and Jules – Travellingfoxes

    Two Nerds on a Tandem

    Two nerds are riding along on a tandem, when suddenly, the one on the front slams on the brakes, gets off and starts letting air out of the tires.

    The one on the back says: “HEY! What are you doing that for!?”

    The first nerd says, “My seat was too high and was hurting my butt. I wanted to lower it a bit.”

    So the one in the back has had enought. He jumps off, loosens his own seat and spins it round to face the other direction.

    Now it’s the first guy’s turn to wonder what’s going on. “What are you doing?” he asks his friend.

    “Look mate,” says the rider in the back, “if you’re going to do stupid stuff like that, I’m going home!!”

    Hello Ken and Julie-Anne! So very nice to meet you at Costco where I work. (West Fargo, ND). Thank you so much for the info on your blog! I couldn’t wait to get home and check it out! You both are a true inspiration! So so happy to see that someone is living my dream!:) I’m a runner but with a recent femoral stress fracture from running I’m hoping and praying that it happened because I was meant to put two wheels between me and the pavement! Happy and safe travels, Ken and Julie-Anne!

    Hi You Two. Enjoying your posts here and on Facebook. I’m guessing we might have rubbed shoulders in December as my wife and I are regular IMWA competitors (it’s our hometown event). Happy trails. Dan T.

    It was nice to meet you yesterday morning. Too bad it was cold and wet. It should get warmer tomorrow.
    Stay safe in the mountains. As a truck driver I know that going up is hard work, but going down is the dangerous part. Every brake check pullout (for trucks) has a sign that tells you what to expect. Maybe that information could be useful to you with your heavy bikes.

    Have fun and stay safe!
