LLois on the Loose


I’ve recently returned from a 3000-mile ride around Iran and have made a short film about it which you can watch right here! And of course I will be writing a book about it too, so keep on watching this space…

I’ve been caught up in a flurry of interest about Iran in the media lately, appearing on BBC World Service and BBC Radio 4 Saturday Live show, my short film was featured on the Telegraph homepage and I gave an interview on Voice of America Persian (I even got to say something in Persian at the end!). And somehow I managed to find time to write this article for CNN.

And so… from Iran to the USA! I will be taking part in a special adventure riding section of the Timonium Motorcycle Show, Maryland in Feb 2015 followed by a whole different engagement in New Jersey – at the Society of Skeptics at the renowned Blair Academy. Hope to see you out on the road somewhere…
