Jin Jeong

Solo Cyclist
Speaker
Jin's dream was going to the universe. But then, she decided to see the earth first by bicycle. Many people have told her that it's impossible to do so from the beginning; especially because she is a woman travelling alone.

Despite the odds, she trusted her dream and herself, and has since cycled through 67 countries in North America, Latin America, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia and South East Asia. And all without going back home for six years! Jin has cycled more than 62,000 kilometres so far (that's 38,525 miles).

Along the way, Jin has met many nice people, some of whom even made her cry when the time came for her to bid them farewell. However, with the lovely memories come hard times. She was once hit by a car and has been sexually harassed several times while on the road. Jin's admitted to being fearful at times, but the reason she hasn't and won't give up is that she loves she is doing. Jin is still on the road to finding her way back home through South East Asia and Oceania on her bicycle. She sees this trip as the first step to travelling the universe.
