We're Eric and Amaya, two ordinary people on a quest to bicycle through every country on the planet.
World Biking began in June 2006 as a 30 country/30,000 kilometer ride through Africa.
Somewhere between Senegal and South Africa, we fell in love with the idea of becoming full-time bicycle nomads and touring the world.
Now we’ve cycled more than 180,000 kilometers through 102 countries on all six permanently inhabited continents.
Our aim is to become the first couple to cycle through every country on the planet. All 195 of them.

More about Amaya Williams
Amaya grew up in Montana. She set off to explore the world in 1995 when an old high school friend (thanks Tracy!) asked her the probing question, "Is this really what you want out of life?” Caught up in the corporate rat race at the time, the answer was an emphatic ‘NO.’
