Beyond the Bike
Stories from Stuart and Claire's original & recent journeys….
Claire has spent the last ten years as Classics teacher (Head of Classics at Rugby School for seven years and most recently teaching at Colfe’s School in London). When Stuart asked her (on their second date) if she fancied cycling to China it sounded like the obvious next step, despite being a cycling novice! She will be riding a bamboo bike ...made by a social enterprise in Uganda.

Having worked for 8 years as an economist in the City (Schroders & Citigroup), Stuart transitioned into teaching in 2009 and worked at Cranleigh School in the UK until 2013. His year long cycling venture helped to build and consolidate links for Cranleigh with Kawama School in Kitwe, Zambia. He has recently moved back to London to set up an eco...nomics department in Morpeth School in Tower Hamlets, London. More
