Grey Diation (Beth Burford) has been riding a bicycle for the past eight years. In 2016, they coordinated the reCycle Bike rental program at Florida State University, led group rides through Tallahassee, taught bike safety classes and organized a sustainable transportation fair. In 2017, after traveling to the San Francisco Bay Area with their bike for the first time, Grey graduated with a degree in English Literature and a minor in French.
From August 2017 until March 2018, Grey bikepacked across Europe from Sweden to Belgium, France, Ireland, Spain and Portugal on their first long-term solo bike tour. Off the bike, Grey creates visual art (film, photography, graphic design, illustration), music (guitar, vocals) and jewellery (usually with pinecones and gemstones).
