Meet Lisa and Simon Thomas

Since 2003 when they first left the UK on a BMW R1150GSA and an F650GS, Simon and Lisa Thomas have ridden something like half a million miles through 78 countries, breaking records and more than a few bones along the way.

In 2016 their original bikes were upgraded to a BMW R1200GSA LC for Simon and an F800GS for Lisa, which they’ve been riding around Mexico, Canada, Alaska, and the USA. But now they’re briefly back in the UK to see their families before continuing their quest to ride through 122 countries and on all seven continents.

We’re thrilled that Lisa and Simon are taking the time out from their other commitments to be part of the Overland Event this year. They’ll be giving a presentation about their mammoth 2RideTheWorld journey, and Lisa will also be sharing her expertise about how to keep fit on the road.
