World-Renowned Moto Adventurer & Author, Ted Simon, To Appear At OX East

Raised in London by a German mother and a Romanian father, Ted Simon found himself impelled by an insatiable desire to explore the world. It led him to abandon an early career in chemical engineering to go to Paris where he fell into journalism.

On 6th October 1973, at the age of 42, Ted set off from London on a 500cc Triumph Tiger motorcycle on what became a four year solo journey around the world, covering 64,000 miles through 45 countries.

With the aim of discovering how the world had changed in the intervening 28 years, on 27th January 2001, aged 69, Ted embarked on a second journey. This time he rode a BMW R80 GS over 59,000 miles through 47 countries.

Ted's books about his journeys, Jupiter's TravelsRiding High and Dreaming of Jupiter, continue to serve as an inspiration to other travellers who seek to know the world, and their place in it, through personal adventure.

You can visit with Ted at the author's tent at Overland Expo East, October 11-13, 2019 in Arrington, Virginia. Stop by to check out one of his exciting reads or take part in one of his “Happy Hour with Ted” presentations Friday & Saturday or his Sunday “Ask Me Anything” session!
