Pedaling Podcast is a show brought to you by me, John Pears, as a way to journey back home on my bike and talking to people along the way, with a story to share that involves a Bicycle.

The journey started out from Auckland, New Zealand and when working at a local bike shop, T Whites Bikes, I realised there was a deep connection between people and their bikes, and I felt it myself. Actually though, it runs differently and deeper than I even imaged.

So in New Zealand I bought myself a Zoom H1 microphone and started organising shows with all the interesting cycling related people I could find, and it was a blast. I spoke with the head of cycling advocacy group, filmmaker, coach, wheel builders, mountain biker and magazine publisher, all with a unique story to tell.

So whats next?

So, after that 1st season in New Zealand, I’m continuing that journey as I cycle trough Australia, Asia, India, Middle East and finally into Europe.

Along the whole journey I’ll be stopping to speak with all the culturally interesting stories that I find along the way, so i can share them with you as I go.

How Long is the trip?

It’s going to take me around a year to get home, all powered by the stories I’m going to find. Well, that and the food, accomodation and visa I’ll need en route, too. However the journey could take longer, and it’s only funding that is preventing the trip going beyond. When I hit Europe, that is also where I would like to spend more time, too.

How can you help?

By supporting me through Patreon, you allow me to generate a small portion of income so I can continue the journey, add extra stories, head to different locations and spend more time with the people who wish to share with me

Goals
$2 of $500 per month
Weekly Video!

I've always wanted to create video content that is raw, true and shows you what it's like to ride a bike home.

When I hit this goal, I'll setup Pedaling Podcast weekly videos, a show compiling the journey I've been on so far.

I'll be shooting the whole thing with my iPhone 8, editing on my iPad and showcasing with you the whole journey I'll be going on
