British Solo women riders

Hi All
I'm doing some research on how many British women have gone around the world solo. The only Brit I know of is Elspeth Beard. Can anyone help? I am setting off in March and its interesting to read of others who have been before you. I am pretty sure I will be the first Welsh woman (although please prove me wrong) and certainly the first to carry a pink clanger all the way around the world (my co pilot kindly provided by my warped friends!!)

Any info would be much appreciated.

Elspeth was the first Brit in the early to mid 1980's on an R60/6, Tiffany has possibly been to more countries than any other female traveller, Brit or otherwise.

I think the pink clanger could be a first, don't forget plenty of soup, there are no soup dragons out there

Not sure if she has done RTW but heard here speak about Africa and North/South America on her own.

Cynthia Milton

Cynthia Milton was on her RTW motorcycle trip when Xfiltrate and I met her in Peru, in 2005, I think. We were about 100km from Cuzco, driving away, when we crossed each other. We stopped, she stopped, we greeted each other. I was amazed to see a woman when she took off her helmet. We made a coffee on the side of the road and share our stories. It was my first motorcycle trip, from Buenos Aires to San Pedro de Atacama, Lima, Central Andes of Peru, Bolivia and back to Buenos Aires, on a Tornado 250. She was the first woman I met riding solo, and riding around the world. She was truly inspiring for me!
