Walking, talking, learning


Hi, I’m Steven Primrose-Smith. Yes, I know it’s a stupid name. Just call me Prim.

I was born near Blackburn, UK, many centuries ago. During an uneventful technical career I realised life’s too valuable to waste it sitting at a desk. Instead, for the last decade or so, I’ve been undertaking huge bicycle rides and writing about my adventures.

So far I’ve biked over 50,000 miles/80,000 kilometres – twice the Earth’s circumference in distance but almost entirely within Europe – and written six travel books (as well as three novels). Please have a look at them over on my website.


However, these last two plague-ridden years and their restricted travel have inspired me to do something even grander and this time without a bicycle.

Please have a look around the site to find out more and learn how you can get involved in all this, or jump to Prim’s Earth Trek all over social media using the icons below.
