Tim Cope is an adventurer, author and film-maker who is passionate about inspiring young people to explore the world that exists beyond their doorstep. He has studied as a wilderness guide in the Finnish and Russian subarctic, ridden a bicycle across Russia to China and rowed a boat along the Yenisey River through Siberia to the Arctic Ocean. His most renowned journey was a three year, 10,000km horseback trek from Mongolia to Hungary across the great Eurasian Steppe with his best friend Tigon. He is the author of Off the Rails: Moscow to Beijing on Recumbent Bikes (Penguin books 2003) and On the Trail of Genghis Khan: An Epic Journey Through the Land of the Nomads (Bloomsbury 2013). He is also the creator of several documentary films, including the award-winning series ‘The Trail of Genghis Khan.’ Tim’s latest work is Tim & Tigon aimed at young readers and focusing on the friendship between he and his adventure dog. Tim currently splits his time between Melbourne, Australia, where he is a regular speaker in schools, and remote Mongolia, where he takes people on nomadic adventures annually.
