Casting Caution to the Wind tells the intrepid stories of lone travellers whose transborder trips are a search for authenticity, meaning and true experience - those who approach adventure as an attitude to be chosen, rather than an experience to be curated or bought.

Sun Rider Press collates the first-hand accounts of ten everyday nomads whose journeys cross the length and breadth of the planet via bicycle, hitchiking, train and bus, with a common cause to resurrect the boldness and curiousity that many of us lose in adulthood. Whether it’s the humbling discomfort of rubbing against your own privilege in rural Nepal, the awakening that comes from strange encounters, or the memorable compadre who guides you when lost, these stories are intimately raw in their unravelling, as much as they are universal.

It’s a spirited celebration of unconventional journeys and means, trusting in the goodness of strangers, and removing the barriers between us at a time when the interactions of the global community are more troubled and siloed than ever. Blending heart-thumping adventure and humane musings, Casting Caution to the Wind uncovers the wild mysteries that stretch between home and an unknown destination somewhere on the road.

On Vélo chronicles Maine’s hapless bicycle trip across the English Channel with his friend Maggie, a romantic optimist “born 30 years too late”. The two concoct an ill-prepared cross-country journey into the heart of rural France in a quest for freedom and adventure, dragging their bunch of motley international friends along for the ride. Maine’s observations on humanity while smoking his way through the countryside, and the group's Beat-generation lifestyle, makes On Vélo a captivating portrayal of longing and timeless friendship in the formative years between youth and adulthood.

On Vélo: Chapter One

On Vélo begins with a major bike incident: a snapped chain 30 miles outside of Bristol with no repair shop in sight. This motley crew of Antipodeans only wanted to see a rock concert in Toulouse. A haphazard trip down to Plymouth to board the French-bound ferry gives them the reality check they never wanted: questionable camping, unsavoury post-war towns, train rides, and DIY repairs - all in the first 3 days - sets the precedent that they are in way over their head. And yet, the group's spirit remains high, as they realise this is going to be more than just an ordinary trip.
