Steph Jeavons - One Steph Beyond


Once there was a time before mortgages, student loans and income tax. A time when life consisted of summer holidays and winter snow days...when a cardboard box was a space ship and a Radio Flyer wagon might get you to the moon and back in time for dinner. It was a time when imagination was in charge of reality and adventures happened every day.

Reality may change, but imagination doesn’t. If you close your eyes you might see yourself winding up a narrow dirt track in the Himalayas to the top of the world...or as the only living soul for hundreds of miles in the Australian outback making friends with scorpions and kangaroos...or crossing dark, foaming seas to witness the summer solstice rise over Antarctica... At least, if you close your eyes and see those things you’re probably Steph Jeavons. And those imaginings, and dozens more, started out as a dream of riding her motorcycle around the world. A dream that has unfolded over the past 26 months and 52,000 miles into her reality. Steph doesn’t have a big inheritance, a fat trust fund or even corporate sponsorship.

Steph Jeavons

What she does have, however, is an authentic curiosity and genuine sense of wonder that characterises not just this particular adventure, but her life in general. Steph lives with open hands and an open heart and while she cheerfully admits that she’s no stranger to fear, she’s determined to let her imagination—and her dreams—determine her reality. Throughout, Steph has been committed to connecting with people who are passionate about riding, or eating, or drinking, or music, or cars, or dreams—indeed, people who are passionate about living. These consequently find themselves connected not by language or politics; but by a thread of hope attached to a Honda CRF 250L that left the Ace Café in London on March 23, 2014.

Steph has spoken internationally at a wide variety of events and venues. Join Steph on the final half of her journey around the world—she is always looking for places to get off the beaten path and might soon be coming to a community near you. Do not miss this unique opportunity to be inspired to remember your dreams. If you’ve ever had a red Radio Flyer wagon, or played in a cardboard box, this is a woman you’ll want to meet.


Presentations can work around your requirements and can be anything from 30 minutes to 2 hours. I talk about my journey and what it takes to ride solo around the world. I include many photographs and videos from the road and adopt a lighthearted and inspirational approach to encourage others to follow their dreams - whatever they may be.
