About Arctic Cycler

Hi there. I am Matthew – an Australian, German, Dutch, European, don’t know what anymore. After being born and raised in Australia, I left the nest when I was 22, and came to live in Europe. Bright-eyed and bushy tailed, I built up my life in Europe – a continent of amazing history, vibrant cities, many languages and cultures.

Time has moved on. After 21 years of living in Europe, its time to go home. My bright eyes and bushy tail have returned. I am going to leave my job and my life in Europe to go home – by bike! My dream. And also a jump into the abyss – from job security and stability – to living the dream.   I’m scared, and, oh, so excited!

I also would like my trip to have more meaning. Together with some friends, we have created Green Pedals – a movement to promote the topics of sustainability and health in our schools around the world. It aims to maintain a dialogue on sustainability, organise activities to encourage engagement in the environment and health, and work with schools to build sustainable infrastructure that exemplifies sustainability, stimulating engagement and ownership of this topic in local communities.
