Meet adventure biking legend Austin Vince
Austin Vince was born in 1965. The youngest of six children, he attended a prep school in Harrow before moving to London’s Mill Hill School at the age of thirteen. It wasn’t until 1984, when Austin was travelling in Iran, that he discovered a passion for motorcycling.
Since then, he’s been an army cadet, civil engineer, maths teacher, actor, presenter, director and motorcycle adventurer. He’s embarked on several motorcycle expeditions, including a ‘Mondo Enduro’ trip that was picked up by the Discovery Channel in 1998. Three years later, Austin met the love of his life: famed travel writer and intrepid motorcycle adventurer, Lois Price. They now live together in Uxbridge.
