About Me


Hello. I’m Dave Gill, an author and filmmaker.

My first book, ‘Vague Direction: a 12,000 mile bicycle ride, and the meaning of life’ was released in 2015.

My second book, about courage, is currently in production and will be released in summer 2017.

“A wake-up call for anyone sleepwalking through life” – Boneshaker


The Bicycle Journey started back in 2012 as a place to document a 12,000 mile bicycle journey. I stepped away from my job as a commercial producer to cycle around North America for a year, whilst talking to as many people en-route as possible about their lives.

See: The Book (on, and | The route | my TEDx talk | the interviews I conducted along the way | the YouTube channel | the gallery of images | the blog archives (everything up to December 2013).
