GEOFF HARPER:

In 1999 I decided to get off the hedonic treadmill in pursuit of the authentic version of myself.
I quit my job in London as a contract Design Engineer, sold most of my belongings and crossed the Atlantic with only a backpack and a bike. Crash-landing in Venice Beach, California I began to reinvent myself as the Unchained Cyclist, a bike-centric experiment in consciousness.
For the last 15 years I have been exploring the most geographically rich regions of the US from the Keys of South Florida to the Mountain Ranges of Alaska and most recently the magical state of Colorado where I can be found exploring and training in the Rocky Mountains – all year round.

UNCHAINED ICELAND:

In 2013 I traversed the South coast of Iceland via beach covering 500 miles over 3 weeks on my 9:ZERO:7 Tusken FatBike during which I drew from experience gained mountaineering in Alaska at high altitude.
