UPCOMING EVENTS

The Ride of Our Life - FREE talk!
In November 2017, Tyson Clark & Sarah Goulopoulos set off on their round-the-world motorbike adventure. After several years of Ty planning his big adventure, a chance meeting in Sydney brought him & Sarah together. They had an instant connection & common interest in motorbikes & travel, & began planning the journey together on 2 bikes. Ty & Sarah will cover how they reached the start line of their trip, what has worked & not, which companies & equipment they’ve used, & the various lessons they’ve learned during set-up & their first 2 months on the road. Sarah will also be available to talk to any women interested in travelling & how she has prepared for 2 years on the road.

Originally planning to set off a year earlier, Ty suffered a life-changing injury during his military service overseas that nearly cost him a leg. Ty will walk us through his fight with the Black Dog after his injury, & share the brutally honest story of how he battled PTSD, major depressive disorder & severe anxiety, & walked out the other side. Find out firsthand the simple strategies Ty used & how to cope when the going gets tough & more importantly - how to keep your dream alive & achieve your goals. Ty & Sarah will have their Triumph Tiger bikes here on the night, so you can see what & how they are packing their gear for this epic journey – 68 countries over 2 years & working with charities along the way.

*DISCLAIMER: Ty is not a qualified mental health practitioner. He is one overlander talking to other overlanders - mates helping mates. Adult language may be used!

You can follow Ty & Sarah’s journey at The Ride of Our Life or donate to their fundraising cause MAG (Mines Advisory Group) through Just Giving. Fundraising t-shirts for MAG will be available for sale on the night. They’ve already raised almost half their $10,000 goal & haven't even left Australia yet!

Every day, 18 people are killed or severely injured due to landmines & other explosives. Almost half of these are children. MAG finds & destroys these deadly weapons, making the land safe for people to use & saving lives. Since 1989, their work has helped over 17.7 million people in over 40 countries. Find out more about MAG on Facebook or their website.

Yoga For Riders - FREE workshop!
Learn some simple techniques on how to warm up/down for a day of riding. Sarah leads you through a sequence of stretches that will help you strengthen and stretch those muscles. The key to less pain is strengthening those core muscles and lengthening the rest. Reduce lower back pain and tight hamstrings. Learn how to stretch your wrists, shoulders, back and legs in a safe way so you don't wake up sore!
Sarah is a Level 1 yoga teacher who has been practicing yoga for five years. Sarah & partner Tyson have found that after a day on the bike, their muscles can be tight & painful. They set out on a 2-year round-the-world trip in November 2017, so yoga is definitely on the "gear list"!

READ OUR RTW TRAVEL BLOG
...well, at least the preparation stage & first 4 months of travel anyway! As time permits, we'll get back to uploading entries. Our blog, called Two-up On A Twin, is written in a He Says/She Says style & covers the 17-month trip that OverlanderAE's owners, Tam & Xander Kabat, did in 2009-2010 through Europe, Africa & SE Asia. Our travel beast was Anubis, a Honda Africa Twin XRV750 (RD07A, year 2000), which is still Xander's travel bike & most-days commute with over 300,000km on the clock :-)
