April 4th 2012 at The Masonic Centre, 7 Reading Road, Wokingham, RG41 1ED.
“I can’t quite remember how it all started, but back in 2000 the combination of itchy feet and a recently acquired motorcycle licence had put ideas in my head. Initial investigations soon pointed me firmly in the direction of Chris Scott’s Adventure Motorcycling Handbook and thus, my plan to motorcycle from Alaska to the tip of South America was born.”
And subsequently, Lois Pryce’s Lois on the Loose adventure travel book about her epic solo journey on a 250cc motorcycle. You heard about this motorcycling adventure on her last visit to us two years ago.
Not content to stop there, on October 14th 2006 Lois left the UK to ride the length of Africa. She’d always fancied the challenge of motorcycling across the Dark Continent and it certainly turned out to be an adventure. Ten-thousand miles and four months later she rolled into Cape Town, just about in one piece! Red Tape and White Knuckles is funny, chilling and inspiring! Lois will be relating the adventures of this trip on April 4th (see Slipstream for details or visit the online calendar).
Lois is still thrill-seeking these days with her husband Austin Vince of Mondo Enduro fame on a Ural sidecar motorcycle.
Lois has also partnered with Horizons Unlimited, the motorcycle adventure travel resource people, to create a Ladies on the Loose video interviewing many women who are adventuring around the globe.
She and Austin are also busy with the Adventure Travel Film Festival, now being held in two venues in the US and also in Australia and the UK.
Find out more about Lois on her website Lois on the Loose.
See you there on the 4th April – 7.30pm doors open – 8.00pm kick-off.
