My name is Andrew Welch.

I founded Georiders - a mountain bike holiday company in Georgia. I am Technical Coordinator of Joya - Arte + Ecologia in Spain.

I run‘Wandermap’- a project about city walking and wrote the Open Wilderness Guiding book.

I have made some long journeys by bicycle and wrote 3 books including ‘Weave of the Ride’ - cycling from England to the Republic of Georgia and my experiences of living there. Between Worlds chronicles my journey from Georgia to India, Nepal and Mongolia via Iran and Pakistan.

Prepare, Pack, Pedal is a practical guide to cycle touring. I kept blogs about my travels which include gear reviews and how-to info about travelling by bike.

I am a photographer and my practice is connected with my journey-making and walking.

I write code and blog about design methods. I studied BSc Environment, Economics and Ecology at York and MA Design Critical Practice at Goldsmiths. Academic writing here.
