Adventurer. Speaker. Mermaid.
Hello. Wonderful to meet you. I’m Lindsey, an adventurer, speaker, and storyteller who mostly travels on a bike called Rudy.
I’ve cycled the length of Africa, retraced Australia’s Rabbit Proof Fence and swum the length of the River Thames as a mermaid to highlight the current plastic pandemic.
I like journeys with a purpose or a story and what I really enjoy is sharing them with anyone who will read, watch or listen to them. Read more.

In February, I cycled from Devon to the inaugural Scottish Winter Swimming Championship in Taymouth Marina and connected with wild swimmers en route. It was only meant to be for two weeks, but i was so high on adrenalin for that fortnight that I decided to carry on. Read More.
I’m always luck to have a roof over my head. Many aren’t so lucky. If you’d like to help me help Crisis UK to end homelessness please donate here.

So, I swam the length of the River Thames as a mermaid to show how we're choking our marine creatures with plastic. Read More »
Walking the Rabbit Proof Fence
Being stuck in Byron Bay with a broken leg, whilst backpacking in my early 20s, I had stacks of films and books for entertainment. One being Follow the Rabbit Proof Fence. The characters in the story helped me through a tough time I'd soon go through so I always wanted to return to Australia to retrace their journey. Read More »
