Achievable Dream: Part 4 - Ladies on the Loose!


See the details on the right if you are unsure.

For the first time ever, a motorcycle travel DVD made for women, by women!

Our globetrotting ladies share their tips to help you plan your own motorcycle adventure - choose and maintain a bike, decide what to take and tackle rough terrain. They also answer the women-only questions, and entertain you with amazing tales from the road!

This inspirational and entertaining DVD is presented by Lois Pryce, veteran solo traveller through South America and Africa and author of 'Lois on the Loose', and 'Red Tape and White Knuckles'. Lois delivers action, entertainment and hot tips, as well as coverage of 'women only' topics. Austin Vince, of Terra Circa and Mondo Enduro fame, is her director and cameraman for this production.

The DVD features eloquent and engaging well-travelled women motorcyclists such as Elspeth Beard (first British woman to ride around the world), Erin Ratay (Guinness World Record holder for longest team motorcycle ride), Patsy Quick (Dakar racer) and Mel Falconer (Trail Bike Magazine), who offer tales, advice and inspiration from the road.

This DVD is meant as an addition to the first three DVD’s and also covers topics of particular interest to women travellers.

User comments/reviews

"I bought this DVD for my wife as a mother's day present! (she loves adventure). Initially I must admit, she was not all that excited about the gift! But after watching it for the third time she just could not get enough of it, each time picking up something new (I think that happens because you get a bit dreamy watching it, thinking of how to plan your next adventure or how to prepare yourself and your bike!) Its great fun watching her enjoy it so much, and for a 36 year veteran to motorcycling, I'm getting a kick out of it too. This is a down to earth DVD: no over glorified macho attitudes, just straight up talk about the thrill of the adventure experience, this along with Long Way Round "A must have". Christopher J. Dempsey on

"Get your boots and helmet on. This DVD is an absolute inspiration. It is well put together, moves along at a good pace, and is full of very useful information such as how to maintain yourself and your vehicle, what to ride and what you are likely to expect on the road. It is long, so give yourself time or arrange a few sittings for it but I for one will be be going back and looking at again and again. Importantly it is not just a dry informative watch. This is fun and you will find yourself chuckling as you watch these women riding their bikes around the world whilst dealing with the shortage of knickers and tampons. What they don't lack is spirit and humour." Gillian Frances  on

"They are certainly inspirational ladies! Made me want to jump on a bike and go, that's for sure!" Kate Hoskins, Pitstop Bookshop, Australia

"Hi Lois and Susan, just watched your Ladies vid and have to say congrats on a great job: the writing, shooting, the look and editing. For any AM'ers, you summed it all up very well and had a great cast of Loosards giving their PoV. Can't have been effortless to make it look that good and not drag too much over 150 mins, so well done you!" Chris Scott, Adventure Motorcycling Handbook

"We received our copy of 'Ladies on the Loose' a few weeks ago and it has got me all fired up to go out on my own adventure. You all did a fantastic job on the DVD and we are eagerly awaiting the final DVD's. It sounds like such a huge job but the final results have been invaluable to future motorcycle travellers." Kath and Rob, Australia

"I've watched it (Ladies on the Loose) twice. The DVD is great - very informative and inspiring. Well done!" Michelle, UK

"My girlfriend and I really enjoyed watching them - very well done!" Aleksandar, Germany

"The quality of the first two (1 & 4) is really professional and an absolute credit to you. Thanks once again we do really appreciate your efforts in making The Achievable Dream' an excellent series." Allan, Australia

"We watched part 4 and it was great. Invaluable for the preparation for our own trip!" Xander, the Netherlands.

"I watched 'Get Ready' on my own and with a little coaxing got him to watch 'Ladies on the Loose' with me. By the end I could see the cogs ticking over and he looked at me and said 'People really do this - I think we could too!' Success! That is why it is called the 'Achievable Dream' series darling! Thank you guys - keep up the great work!" Lisa and Stu, Australia
