In memory of Steve Cawthorne a world traveller who sadly passed away whilst still doing what he loved, riding his bike.
Here you will find copies of some letters that Steve sent to Paul Mullis and a selection of photographs (kindly supplied by Steve’s family) of his tour through Alaska, Canada, North America, South America and Australia, from August 1990 to July 1993.
Special thanks to Christine Goodall (Steve’s Sister) for sorting out and lending me the original photographs and to the family for agreeing to this website.
Thanks also to the likes of Ted Trett, Roy Watkinson and Heather Macgregor for prompting me to put this together.
Any comments, suggestions, additions, memories or just for a chat contact Graham Butler at the e-mail address below.
Apologies for any typo’s, spelling mistakes or real mistakes, this was originally done on an Amstrad (15 years ago) from the original letters. It was then printed in Pilgrims Papers (the Mayflower MCC newsletter), then scanned and converted to Word and in the meantime it’s got a bit messed up in places with double letters and extra punctuation, but I can’t get it any better without re-typing the whole lot, and I’m not doing that, sorry !

The following are letters that Steve sent back to his family.
The next set of pictures are newspaper clippings I collected at the time.
